Can you tell the difference between a male and a female nipple? Neither can Instagram.
Everyone knows that Instagram has come under fire in regards to their rules about female nudity.

According to their Community Guidelines, you can only show post-mastectomy scarring, nipples in photos of paintings and sculptures, or breastfeeding nipples.

Which is why @genderless_nipples, an Instagram account showing nipples up close and personal, is sort of genius.
Evelyne Wyss, Morgan-Lee Wagner, and Marco Russo created the account, which now has over 38,000 followers.
The trio started the account to make a point about the platform’s flawed rules when it comes to censorship.
“We are not against following the rules, but we think these should be applied to all genders equally,” Wyss told BuzzFeed. “By uploading a close-up picture, how could Instagram even tell the difference? We want to show them their guidelines won't work in today’s society anymore.”
