After all the uproar about Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction last year I designed a test for some of my friends. I found about 6 pictures of female bare breasts on the internet and cropped just the nipple and aerola from these. I then found some bare chests of men and did the same thing (cropped just the nipple and aerola). I didn't show the breast mound that is legal for both sexes just the so called offending part (nipple and aerola). I then lined these nipples and areolas up side by side on a page with a number beside each. then on a separate page I put the whole chest of each male and female with their corresponding number. I then took the page with just the nipples and aerolas of the males and females and asked guys to tell me which nipple and aerola belonged to a man and which ones belonged to a woman. I couldn't get one guy to take it. They just looked and shook their heads. I guess they didn't want to look like a fool in case they placed the wrong nipple with the wrong gender. I know without the breast mound it is impossible in many cases to tell the difference. Maybe someone should develop a test similar to this and have the judges and lawmakers that make such gender bias laws take it.

Interesting experiment. You should put it together in a way you can post it on the internet.

I didn't save it but anyone can easily make a similiar test. I had the pictures on Vue Print and I just went and clicked on image and went down the list and clipped on crop and cropped just the nipple and areola and a small amount of skin to show the outline of the areola. I just lined up the nipples on a page and then went back and cropped the whole body picture so the faces didn't show (just the torsos of the men and women) I also enlarged or made smaller the areolas and nipples so they would all be about the same size in the lineup. Also, one of the pictures I used was of my wife. No one taking the test had a clue I had included a picture of her. Incidently, I did get permission from her before I put her in the test. If I remember correctly I don't think she was even able to pick her own nipple from the lineup when she took the test.

I shouldn't respond to my own post but I just thought of another idea. With computers people are alway super imposing things such as someone elses head on someone elses body. What if someone instead of changing heads on bodies super imposed a famous actress's nipples on a famous male actor's chest. Let's say all the magazines publish this picture of this actors bare chest until someone discovers it isn't really his nipples. When the truth is discovered it is a woman actress's nipples super imposed on the man's chest how many newspapers would be subject to fines because of publishing pornography. Just a stupid twisted thought. Sorry!

I have often wished someone would take a photo that has men and women like some I have seen on clothesfree, then take a piece of cardboard [or similar]place the cardboard over the photo and cut 1/4 holes in the cardboard over the nipples of all the people, then ask a judge or some protester if they could tell which was which. I know sometimes you can, but a number of times there is little or no difference. I would like to see a judges face if he or she failed the test after you removed the cardboard

Let's use our time and effort in what we are here all about and help other women (and men, I guess) to think our way.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but this little test is an awesome way to drive home the point that the discriminatory practices of our judicial system are indeed ridiculous and fail miserably.
The fact that individuals you have met refuse to take the test for fear of failure and embarrassment goes a long way to making the point than just talking.
