Although some social media sites have said they’ve eased up on censoring women’s nipples on their platforms when presented in a certain way (art, breast cancer, breastfeeding), it’s still not unusual to have images of women’s breasts that show nipple taken down by the powers that be.

This becomes particularly difficult for breast cancer awareness groups who are trying to provide potentially life-saving information to the masses. In an attempt to combat this constant and arbitrary censorship, MACMA a Breast Cancer Help Movement in Argentina, has come up with a brilliant work around by opting to use man boobs to share their awareness message.

“Women’s boobs — particularly their nipples — are censored in certain social networks, even when showing how to perform breast self-examinations to detect early breast cancer,” MACMA says in the video. “But we found boobs that aren’t censored: Henry’s.”

While it would be great if social media platforms would finally commit to freeing the nipple, we love this video for its trifecta of awesomeness in addressing censorship, providing great info about self breast exams and talking about male breast cancer. It’s a must watch.
