Everybody likes Boobies
So over the weekend, I read a really awesome book I picked up at the library. It’s called Stacked, and it’s all about breasts from an anthropological and cultural perspective. It’s really excellent, because it discusses how breasts might have evolved, how the bra has evolved, and what women and men think of them. The most interesting chapter might have been the last one, where the author discussed some transgender perspective on breasts and how they make someone feminine even more so than the possession of a vagina. It was quite interesting stuff, really! If you like non-fiction, definitely pick it up.
