This artist uses emojis to create images of female nipples so she can bypass Instagram’s ban on nudity

“Free the nipple” you say? Don’t worry, an Instagram artist has worked out a way to bypass the controversy of female nipples on social media.

As we approach the middle of 2017, it is absolutely ridiculous that male nipples are socially accepted, yet female nipples (those same nipples that feed nutrients to new life) are taboo.

Instagram’s conditions of use make point of saying that they don’t allow nudity on Instagram, though nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures are OK, and male nipples totally surpass this ruling.

There has been a lot of backlash to this, however one woman has taken her fight for equality to a new level. The artist, a 22-year-old student at London’s Central St Martins, Camila Gonzalez Corea is taking a stance against the ridiculously outdated social norms.

The artist has created a movement called The Nipple Act where she takes photographs of female nipples and transforms them into works of art using emojis. The act is a protest against the double standards of internet culture where female nipples are banned, and males have a free for all on flaunting their nipples.

Camilla spoke to metro.co.uk and said, “because we are talking about a female organ which in my opinion can be seen as both sexual and not sexual, but by banning the showing of it, what these platforms are doing is immediately rendering the organ as exclusively sexual.”

Unable to fully change society’s views on her own, Camilla was inspired by @genderless_nipples and hopes to inspire many others.

If you are over 18, Camilla encourages people to submit photographs of their nipples to her, so she can recreate your picture in emoji form.
