Meghan McCain posted a picture of herself on Twitter that showed cleavage. People commented on it. Some didn’t like it. It became a mini-crisis. The Political Hotsheet even referred to it as “an uproar.” Now it’s become a column at The Daily Breast.

On Wednesday I posted a hastily-taken self-portrait on Twitter—which I thought was funny and silly—and within a few hours I had caused a minor media scandal. I spent most of the next day thinking about what exactly was so shocking about the picture, why there was such an immediate and nasty overreaction.


For years I have struggled to accept the fact that the way I look in a tank top comes off more “sexual” than a flat-chested woman. And once again I was reassured by the media that someone with my cup size should always be covered up. Or what, I’ll be seen as a slut? It’s pathetic we can come so far in so many ways, but when Rep. Aaron Schock or Rep. Jeff Flake post pictures of themselves without their suits on—and their shirts, for that matter—they are proclaimed “hotties.” But put me in a tank top and I am suddenly an embarrassment to the Republican Party and women everywhere. The double standard is infuriating.


It is my fervent hope that the Republic will, somehow, be able to withstand this hazardous bump in the road and that, ere too long, this short national nightmare will be over.
