B is for Breasts
Of which ladies have two;
Once prized for the function,
Now for the view.

Hah! Do I have your attention yet, flist? I'm sorry for that, but I'm very amused by the subject of today's random entry: Breasts.
So, was having a conversation with a friend [nameless at his request] today on, you guessed it, boobs. My fascination with my own boobs is not a secret (hey, I only just got them 6 years ago; motherhood for the win) nor is my fascination in others' for that matter. XD The conversation came about because his girlfriend was self-conscious of her chest because she felt her nipples were too big and shaped wrong.
What makes a nice set of tits? Is it resemblance to the silicone porn stars, with tiny, perfect nipples? Is it a lack of blemishes or imperfections? Or are girls just thinking too deeply into this shit?
Honestly, I think it is very much the latter. As an appreciator of boobs, despite not being a man, I can say quite easily that breasts are nice. I don't care if you've got giant ones or small ones, boobs are great. Why all the fuss? What is there to be ashamed about or self-conscious about?
I don't have 'perfect' boobs. I have Montgomery Glands (those little bumps on the areola), and I have large nipples. Umm, hello? I have had a child. To prepare for breastfeeding, a woman's areolas grow larger and darken (contrast, for the poor eyesight of a newborn). Mine did both. While the color faded some, the size remained. I admit I have my occasional self-sonfidence problems with this particular aspect... but I simply love my boobs too much to hold it against them. And I remember when I did that short foray into topless photography (for artistic reasons to illustrate poetry, not that my confidence lasted, LOL!) I got a lot of very appreciative comments on my nipples, which made me feel better. XD
Anyway, my point! Yes, I have one!
Girls: I know a lot of women have serious insecurities about thier chest. Well, don't. Seriously. No matter your cup size, the details of your nipples, or the way they sit, I doubt most men (or women for that matter, since we know there are differences!) would have a problem with them. Especially if he loves you. Your relationship will never hinge on how great your boobs are (and if it does, get the fuck out of the relationship :P) and just enjoy whatever you've got. XD
Guys: I've got a handful of guys on here, and allow anonymous posting to boot. What are your thoughts? It is always nice to hear from the opposite gender on this. ;)
And I'm done!
Back to homework. :P
Here is a handy site if you're still feeling insecure, one that Googling found me for [name omited]'s girlfriend. :) Nipple Gallery It has every kind of nipple there is and shows that just about everything is a normal variance. :P Warning/Comment: Some of the pictures on there will make you go O___O and likely subsequently feel wonderful about your own chest. I hate to admit feeling better about myself at the expense of another but... well, honesty, yeah?
