  1. Media censors would have an easier job. Naked & Afraid — also known as Blurred & Afraid — wouldn’t have to spend most of their valuable time blurring the women.
  2. Naked actressess in PG movies/TV wouldn’t have to be filmed shoulders-up, unlike their male counterparts, and the after-sex L sheets (see picture) would no longer be a thing.
  3. Want to breastfeed your baby in public without complaints, stares, or an otherwise awkward feeling? Go ahead.
  4. Only have a pair of swim trunks? No problem, regardless of gender.
  5. Fewer tan lines.
  6. The days of ice cubes tormenting tanning ladies with untied tops would be over.
  7. Anyone could change their shirts, even bras, wherever men do.
  8. No longer would anyone complain or stare at anyone else not wearing a bra. Nor would anyone have to hear another complain about having to wear a bra ever again.
  9. Topless pictures would be less appealing to hackers and those looking to share nudes without consent, probably resulting in fewer of these crimes.
  10. Definitions of sexual assault could be more equitably applied, such as prohibiting unwanted sexualy-motivated touching of any body part, regardless of gender.
  11. The porn industry would have to get more creative, selling boobs would be a far greater challenge.
  12. Men would have more realistic expectations of breasts, rather than just what is seen in porn or on HBO.
  13. Women would have greater confidence in their bodies for the same reasons as above.
  14. Plastic surgery rates would probably fall as a result of this too.
  15. With less taboo of breasts they would probably be checked more often and result in earlier detection of cancer, possibly saving lives.
  16. Fewer women would die from failed CPR due to others being afraid of touching their chests. Emergency workers could focus more on saving lives rather than having to also be concerned about female modesty at greater length than that of males.
  17. Slut-shaming would be less prevalent.
  18. Since men would be less focused on women’s chests there would be more opportunity to focus on other things of greater importance, such as personality. There would probably be greater respect all around between the sexes as a result.
  19. Our current modesty and censorship standards will look just as silly to future generations as previous standards look to us now. They will wonder why anybody was ever afraid of breasts to begin with.
