I remember sixth grade like it was yesterday. My mom kept saying that one day I would actually have boobs like the rest of my friends. But at 51, I'm still a bit too small to fit into an A cup.

I have found that since menopause set in, my nipples think it's below zero 365 days a year. They're just so perky and ready for the day. All the damn time. I have to buy bras with layers of padding just so I don't show my headlights on high beam.

While I only had the courage to slip my bottoms off once in Spain, beneath the water, for about seven seconds, the truth is that it didn't take long for me to get used to the idea of letting the girls fly free. It felt so much better -- less sweaty, more breezy and a helluva lot more fair.

Breasts on Facebook: Stop the Censorship, Mark Zuckerberg!

In real life, I was able to appeal this decision, but with you, we cannot click on an "appeal" tab. And since I am a feminist, I cannot stop myself from noticing male chests circulating all over your site without consequence and receive your narrow-minded precepts like a discriminatory slap in the face.

The truth is, I have microscopic boobs. Phil Mickelson's are bigger. Perhaps my husband might have more judiciously said that I'm "fashion model-sized" up top, but I'm okay with his answer. Lucky for me, my husband is a leg and butt man.

I'm sorry for all the years that I (mistakenly) thought you weren't enough. I'm sorry for the torture I put you through, stuffing you into Victoria Secret padded bras and hoping you came together to give me the perfect cleavage for prom. It wasn't you, it was me.

So the perfect woman has to have big boobs, a big butt... but why doesn't she have a big gut? The stomach remains the big taboo of the female body: it can't exist, it has to be as flat as possible, with the waistline perfectly defined and no disgraceful flab.
