Posted on

Feminist Matt McGorry strikes again: The Orange is the New Black actor joined the Free the Nipple movement Wednesday when he posted a shirtless photo of himself featuring Chrissy Teigen and Miley Cyrus’ nipples along with a lengthy note about living in a society that “so heavily sexualizes women.”

Both Teigen and Cyrus have posted naked photos of themselves that have been removed by Instagram assumedly because of their nipples, so McGorry photoshopped the two’s nipples where his own would be. “Can’t you tell by how perverse my photo has become without my asexual male nippies?” McGorry wrote. “Sarcasm.”

He went on to talk about the Free the Nipple movement, which includes a movie of the same name that came out in December 2014. “You might be thinking to yourself, there are way more important issues out there than women being able to expose their bumpy buttons whenever men can,” McGorry wrote. “But it’s not just about getting an even tan; it’s one piece of the puzzle of creating deep change in the way our society objectifies women and creates these different standards for men and women (and other genders).”
