You would think people would get more upset by the imagery reminiscent of the genocides of the 20th century with huge piles of human skulls and so on. Than a bit of tissue attached to half the population that the other half depended on for sustenance in their early life.
Very odd attitude. I mean if it is religiously motivated I am pretty sure "Thou Shalt Not Commit Murder" is a bigger one than "Thou Shalt Not Display Mammaries". AFAIK
that one didn't even make it into the top ten.
It's... complicated. "Out of sight, out of mind" comes into play. "Lead me not into temptation" as well. And then there's just the general historical trend to treat women as somehow lesser than men that certain religions are loathe to give up on as well, not to mention the Christian fundamentalist belief in Eve as the mother of all evil, and therefore all women as inherently more sinful than men.
You're right, it doesn't make any sense at all. I'd bet 90% of us were exposed to boobs before we made it through our first day. But many adults are loathe to remember that breasts have a far more important
function than being a sexual display and playthings for men.
