It appears there's a new craze sweeping the nation brought to you by the full-breasted young women of our great university system. This movement, or "boobment", as it's oh so cleverly been dubbed, started when one Kansas University co-ed tweeted a close-up of her bodacious boobies stuffed into a team shirt to, you know, rally her JayHawks to an unlikely come from behind victory. Just a lone send up to the Twitterverse. Now as luck or tits would have it they won. Don't ask me. Maybe god is a boob-man? The JayHawks came back from a 19-point deficit and thus a movement was born. Before long other KU girls started tweeting close-ups of their boobies in team gear and in a flash chicks from colleges around the nation hopped onto the flesh wagon, creating Twitter handles, Facebook pages and Instragram accounts teeming (teaming?) with breasty-school pride. What's that line from Field of Dreams? If you post it, they will win?
Now I'm not writing this simply to report on current events. I'm here to ask you, GuySpeak Nation, where you stand or droop on the matter? Is it offensive and devaluing to women by women? Or is it simply some semi-naughty fun in a world that takes itself too seriously? In fact, far from negative, there are those in the #boobment who are saying it's down right feminist. That the #Boobment is empowering to women, getting in on the action and throwing a wrench in the all-together male body worshipping that's on display 24/7 during NCAA competitions.
I will also say, as a dude scrolling through these tweets from, say Vanderbilt (@vandyboobs) or #UNCboobs it's a thrill. There is something lovely about feasting your eyes on a pretty pair of perkies. But I'm old enough to be most of these girls... math tutor, and there are dudes double my age feasting on this too. I'm left feeling how I leave most things: unsure. Able to argue both sides and more interested in hearing you guys out than wrestling more with myself.
Are you pro #Boobment?
Is this college pride or something else?
Is this just the beginning, ushering in the next wave of... Villanova Vagina Pride? Duke Dick Pride? University of Arkansas Anus Pride?
