Wife Says That Her Husband Demands That She Wear a Bra Around Her Stepson
Life sometimes throws up some curveballs where the right answer is not clear. There is no black and white, but varying shades of grey, depending on where you look. This dilemma is certainly one of those scenarios.
A woman has turned to the internet to seek advice after her husband demanded that she always wear a bra at home while her stepson is around.
Asking Slate’s parenting advice column, Care and Feeding, the woman wanted to know if she had a right to be comfortable in her own home or if she should have to wear a bra as her husband demands.
While this woman should be able to be comfortable in her own home, she does admit that she doesn’t feel that it’s appropriate to “nip out” with her stepson around.
But what is so scary about nipples?
Once the story hit the internet, people had a lot to say. Mostly boob-having people, but people nevertheless.
“How about this? Every time your husband wants you to put on a bra tell him you’ll do so if he puts on a jock strap,” one commenter wrote.
“Your breasts aren’t out in your stepson’s face. You aren’t wearing low cut tops and turning up the AC to get attention. So anyone who has a problem with the fact that you’re big-chested needs to just deal with it.”
Someone else agreed. “Frankly, if my husband ‘sent me upstairs to change,’ I’d tell him to go eff himself. He isn’t my mother and I am not a child. She should be cognizant of what [she] is wearing when she is braless, no tight t-shirts or see-through items, but otherwise, live her life. If her husband doesn’t like it, then tell him the stepson can find another place to live because she will be comfortable in her own home and she’ll wear a bra when he wears one.”
“Sorry. When I am in my own home I am in charge of what I wear,” added a third commenter. “Personally, I wear a bra now that my boobs are ginormous because I don’t like not having support, but for years I went braless. And if my husband had told me to wear a bra I would have handed him one and told him he is welcome to wear one whenever he wants.
“Her stepson can learn the fine art of averting his eyes. It’s not her job to save him from her boobs.”
It sounds like this woman is making every effort to ensure that she’s not boobing out all over the place when her stepson is present so she should wear whatever she likes.
