hmm - 'get your tits out for the lads' gets in the way of this for me, although I acknowledge that every woman has a right to get her tits out if she wants. BUT I don't think that showing parts of our bodies that men find sexually attractive is going to help the cause of being taken seriously. We could go down the road of men being conditioned by a gendered upbringing to find tits attractive, but for now, I think this is not the best way of getting across feminist points.
