CANBERRA, Australia – Thousands of photos of women’s cleavages were posted to a Facebook page after Julia Gillard was criticized by a radio host for not covering her breasts enough.
Columnist Grace Collier sparked the online frenzy after he said on a radio programme: “I don’t think it’s appropriate for a Prime Minister to be showing her cleavage in Parliament.”
Facebook page Destroy the Joint saw immediately the opportunity to channel women’s outrage in a positive way and used the hastag #convoyofcleavage to gather hudreds of pics of woemen’s breasts . Women were invited to send picks of their bosoms and after a female blogger called Jennifer Wilson encouraged them to do so. The blogger said:
It seems to me that if we are to stamp out this irrational horror of the female breast…we have little choice but to use immersion therapy in which we expose Ms Collier and fellow sufferers to images of that which they so fear.
A spokesman for Destroy The Joint told the Daily Mail the pictures are going to be put in a photograph album to prove Miss Collier “is an idiot.”
