Women, Men’s Nipples And Censorship


Female nipples on Instagram have been banned. Men are free to post shirtless snaps as they see fit, but women aren’t allowed. Moreover, some women are proving how ridiculous the rules are by covering up their nipples in their photos with cut out male ones.

Instagram says in its community guidelines that female nipples, except for specific circumstances, are banned. “We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature”.

Meanwhile, artist Micol Hebron created a template of a male nipple last year to make a statement about the online censorship rules. You can take a small taste of the examples below and if you want to get involved, download Hebron’s nipples.
