Meghan McCain Defends Breasts, Denies Being a Slut

by at . Comments

Just hours after it was posted, an innocent-enough but nevertheless busty Meghan McCain Twitter photo made Sen. John McCain's daughter a (cute!) pariah.

While her judgment in posting the pic in a public forum was questionable (a fact she admits), the photo was far from slutty or attention-seeking in nature.

Meghan McCain says she is basically being labeled a slut because her breasts are above average in size and were visible in the pic, and she's got a point.

Here's are excerpts from her latest column about the controversy:

"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 media scandal.

I spent the next day thinking about what was so shocking about the picture. After all, it’s not like I was making a sex tape. I certainly didn’t pose nude.

Could it be it's because I have breasts? Because for those of you who didn't know, I have two. They're larger than some women's and not as big as others.

Meghan McCain is Back

Most Meghan McCain pictures are not as controversial as this week's.

To be honest, I don't feel I have anything to be ashamed of. I've embraced my curves and will continue to. It’s the media that have a problem with my body.

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. 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?

When Rep. Aaron Schock or Rep. Jeff Flake post pictures without suits on, they are “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's not easy to be called a slut. But I'm not giving up my Twitter just yet - I'm just going to be more judicious in how I use it. I am a work in progress.

This is the last time I’ll ever address this non-scandal but I hope that other girls can learn from this episode before they post any kind of picture online.

I learned a valuable lesson about the Internet and boundaries between personal and public use with social media. I wanted to get that off my chest."

Now there's a cry for attention and the wrong kind. Boobs all hanging out that no one wants to see. Put those away honey, you're bound to poke someones eyes out

One of the voting options is "Leave her alone" which is actually quite funny because the LAST thing McIdiot wants is to be left alone. She will take massive amounts of attention in whatever form she can get it. The girl is a creep, with or without her boob pic.
