About a week ago, there were two blogs about me and bras. Someone commented that I must be really embarassed about them. Of which I replied, “Breast is just another organ like nose or ears and bra is a piece of clothings. No big deal about that.”
Well, let’s not forget that I am the owner of the first Malaysia breastfeeding and parenting website cum forum which has 700 members. I talk about breasts almost daily and therefore, hope to one day educate all the people to look at breast or rather, what they referred to as boobs, differently.
Many women had actually been foolish enough to die in the quest of trying to alleviate these mammary glands to the level of ‘to die for sexual tools’. Yeap, they went for plastic surgeries from doctor quacks which turned horribly wrong. And there are also plenty of women who have these inferior complex about sagging breasts and will not hesitate to spend millions of dollars in trying to be perfect.
I mean, come one la, there is more to a woman than these two fleshy, orbs right? Can’t women learn to be more self-assured than to let minor stuffs like these to cloud their self-worth?
Take a look around you the next time you go shopping, whether in pasar malams or upmarket shops. Do you notice that ALL bras are padded? They come in all kind of paddings too. From air, water, silicone, gel, sponge to what-nots.
I remember when I was much younger, bras were just merely cloths. Only the very old aunties and the real airports (flat chested) whom had no chance of men ever seeing them naked would opt to wear bras with sponges. Isn’t wearing bras with so much paddings and artificial support sort of like lying to the world?
Now let’s talk about breasts? Breasts most important function, like what God intended them for, is to provide food for babies. Jesus was breastfed, Nabi Muhammed was breastfed and I believe Lord Buddha too, since he was born in the jungle with no formula milk. Think about it? What does your mom means to you? The person that you respect the most, isn’t it? Other than God, isn’t your mom the most sacred person?
Why then, does your mom’s bosom did not turn you on but some bimbos’ ones do? Why indeed? I can’t explain too. Does a woman’s breasts provide you the same security that your mom used to provide? Or is it because the breast stands out and hence, become eye-catching? Heck, I also do not know.
However, I do find it amusing when the holiest of men, can subconciously swift their eyes to the breasts. It has happened many times before and I think it amusing because it just made them so silly. One of my favourite past time when lingering around in public places is to observe these obedient looking husbands who tried to cucimata without their wives’ notice. They can look so damn stupid, I tell you. Ladies, try to do that the next time when you are in public places. See how they try to act innocent, yet their eyes couldn’t resist and their heads are sort of angled in a funny way?
I hope people will look at breasts differently. Especially mothers-to-be and even more so, fathers-to-be. The health of your child depends on breastfeeding. Try to see beyond the sexual function of the breasts. See it as food provider. Like the ‘Meet The Fockers’ movie, Robert DeNiro made it sound so suave, “Breastfeeding is a natural thing to do.” (or something like that)
Can you see the purpose of breasts now? Will you still get turn on with those silicon-filled ones you see on porn sites? Are you going to let some less-than-perfect breasts made you feel inferior?
