The problem here is the parents. Where are these kids parents. If you are under 16 you should have parents with you for an event like this. (I thought you had to, apparently not) Same with the girls, when they are younger they’re a lot more likely to show they’re tits than when they are older and know the consequences. Either way I think the girls have the power here, either show em or don’t. Though if I was over 18 and male, taking photos of young girls with their tits out I’d be VERY careful. Just one facebook post away from the sexual offenders list.

Pandus – LOL!!!!!!! How have you come to be so wise?

You should turn your manifesto into a best selling self-help book.

The feminist manifesto:

ALL A MAN HAS TO DO TO MAKE A WOMAN HAPPY IS TO BE:

1. a friend
2. a companion
3. a lover
4. a brother
5. a father figure
6. a teacher
7. an educator
8. a cook
9. a gardener
10. a carpenter
11. a driver
12. an engineer
13. a mechanic
14. an interior decorator
15. a stylist
16. a sex therapist
17. a gynecologist/obstetrician
18. a psychologist
19. a psychologist
20. a therapist
21. a good father
22. a gentleman
23. well organized
24. tidy
25. very clean
26. athletic
27. affectionate
28. affable
29. attentive
30. ambitious
31. amenable
32. articulate
33. bold
34. brave
35. creative
36. courageous
37. complimentary
38. capable
39. decisive
40. intelligent
41. imaginative
42. interesting
43. prudent
44. patient
45. polite
46. passionate
47. respectful
48. sweet
49. strong
50. skillful
51. supportive
52. sympathetic
53. tolerant
54. understanding
55. someone who loves shopping
56. someone who does not make problems
57. someone who never looks at other women
58. very rich

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION TO MAKE SURE YOU:
59. you are neither jealous nor disinterested
60. get on well with her family, but do not spend more time with
them than with her
61. give her space, but show interest and concern I where she goes

ABOVE ALL IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO:
62. Not to forget the dates of:
a. Anniversaries [wedding, engagement, first date].
b. graduation
c. birthday
d. menstruation

However, even if you observe the above instructions perfectly, you are
not 100% guaranteed that she will be happy.

HOW TO MAKE A MAN HAPPY:

1. Let him play with your tits.

I used the term shirtlifter in the context of gals lifting their tops up. I did not know it had another meaning.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Look, I think the problem here is one of sexist discrimination. If there were a couple of young women next to them with signs saying “Show us yer dick”, and young men driving by responding, I think we’d all feel much more comfortable.

It’d also attract a wider audience to Summernats – like the poster who wanted to see some shirtlifters in the Supercruise.

People are way too PC these days. It’s getting boring! Mind you kids these days (oh god, I’ve turned into my father!) really have no clue coz their parents are too busy cotton wooling them for the kids to learn from their own mistakes.
I really don’t think it’s that big a deal, but I’d be curious as to how they’ve been raised 😉 have they been smothered so much that they’ve “rebelled?!” I’d be more concerned about the cockheads who attacked one of the organisers than some lame 15 yr old boys
Or on the otherside, have their parents given up on parenting because “we’ll let the teachers deal with it”
Who really knows…

Look as someone who has some, boobs are beautiful objects and everyone loves them. However I find this photo truly disturbing.
Its just so terribly depressing to think that public representations of women are always reduced to tits.
A festival which apparently condones this kind of behaviour -this harmless high jinks sort of stuff – is really part of something which contributes to sexual violence towards women.
And I know its hard to write about this without coming across as sounding like some overall-wearing po-faced feminazi – as I know my response seems hyperbolic – but its not.
These boys obviously felt comfortable enough in that environment to show these signs – that’s quite significant – I doubt they would feel comfortable showing them at say – the beach or at a shopping centre.

I mean where else can you get a green light to express these thoughts? Jail perhaps?

For as long as there has been tits…..

boys have been interested in them.

Such is Life.

Who will watch Bloke’s World if not these lads? Think of all of the people who would be unemployed if that show went off air.

I personally think too much time has been invested here – I polled that they are ‘fair game’, and they are but really – a few naughty school boys holding a naughty sign.

I sat near a 30ish parent only a week ago that repeatedly and loudly told her approx 4yo daughter to ‘shut up you complaining brat’, youve been fed already today – you had a big breakfast’ at 4pm along with a bunch of other choice statements. I cringe at what the end result might be but Im reasonably sure its a lot worse than a sign about titties.

Brilliant, 12 year olds yelling ‘show us ya tits’.

Just charming. Women being treated as objects by a couple of year sevens.

Their parents must be proud.

And yet organisers insist this is a “family event”. Yeah… right.

You know what? I don’t care too much about these kids and this sign – because they don’t pose an actual threat to women. The late-night, hard-porn, rape-potential vibe at Summernats is what is really scary – among the drunken louts. And yes, last year there was what was surely illegal porn – why else would it have been conveniently projected from a trolley contraption for quick removal if the police or other inspectors passed by?

Has it occurred to you that the same message these kids have been fed (that women are merely objects for sexual pleasure) is what leads to the “late-night, hard-porn, rape-potential vibe”? You should care about these kids and that sign.

professorgoogoo5:47 pm 09 Jan 12

Those are some art skills that those charming little bogans have on their hands.

Looks like summernats was as tasteful as ever this year.

creative_canberran5:30 pm 09 Jan 12

A bit sad that in the age of internet images, they actually wasted time drawing up those posters. of course we may all be taking it out of context and it’s actually a witty parody of bogans.

Maybe these young lads just don’t our local bird wildlife.

Although drawing the birds dead, upside down on the ground is a tad harsh.

Hahahahaha! Clever! 🙂

mareva said :

Don’t men get bored of being this basic? Sorry to sound like a snob but if I was this desperate for something so meaningless I’ve probably kill myself.

No, we will never get bored of tits. Although some men prefer arses. Avoid.

Who’s to say what’s meaningless? Interestingly, feminists were just a little obsessed with bras there for a couple of decades – clearly tits aren’t entirely meaningless to them, either.

Where’s the desperation? It looks to me about as desperate as sombody who waves a “GO WARNE-EY” sign at a game of cricket. Ie, not particularly desperate at all.

Maybe these young lads just don’t our local bird wildlife.

I think the sad part of this is that these boys are simply emulating the examples they see of how to be ‘men’ by the ‘men’ surrounding them. Sigh. I can honestly say that had I been there I would have asked them to think about what they were doing. I certainly hope their parents use it as an opportunity to help them make healthy decisions around the confusing messages we send to young people.

I-filed said :

I’m more concerned at seeing that the 14-15 year old in the pink T-shirt has such a big gut. Imagine how he will look when he’s 20 – and the state of his health when he is 40!

He probably figures that, since he’s not going to get access to many tits, he’d best work on making his own.

You can tell the ones that were bottle fed.

I just wish they had said “please”.

Mr Gillespie said :

Who cares?

Well, the 50 people who commented before you, for a start.

Honestly, why make the effort to respond with “who cares?”?

Why waste time writing and holding a sign?

Just gOOgle it. 30,600,000 results in .29 seconds typing ‘tits out’.

Amanda,

I’m pretty sure that if there was 15 year old girls with signs saying:

“Cock Out”

There would be plenty of takers.

You seem to think these boys aren’t being judged for their behaviour. Perhaps take a re-read of the thread?

I was responding to a particular person who was asking why others thought that it WASN’T okay. And sure, there’d be takers, but its my opinion that girls holding such signs or getting their boobage on wouldn’t be judged by the jovial ‘boys will be boys’ yardstick that we tend to apply to male teenage yooves. It was a different way of saying ‘would you be okay with it if it were your daughter’, pointing out the double standard, as some other posts have done. That’s all.

If I had a daughter and she was freely willing to expose her breasts because a couple of teenage boys had a sign saying “tits out” then I’d think that I’ve probably failed in my job as a parent. Note if I was a parent of these boys I’d probably think I’d also failed.

These boys receive a tut tut attitude from the same people who think that it’s a good idea to organise a slutwalk for girls/women to be able to express themselves any way they want.

Don’t men get bored of being this basic? Sorry to sound like a snob but if I was this desperate for something so meaningless I’ve probably kill myself.

You might think that a couple of young boys wanting to see breasts is harmless fun, but that’s a pretty short-sighted view. The last thing we need in our society is more kids being taught that women are objects, and make no mistake, the behaviour on display in the picture demonstrates that these kids are already on the way to thinking that.

Urges and desires might be natural but that doesn’t give us justification to just act on them regardless of societal convention.

I like the way they’ve been folded to be concealed past mum on the way out the door.

National Geographic?

So long as the content filter is turned off, searching for pretty much anything on Google Images will return boobs.

The tits out sign seems pretty offensive to me.

Pffft it’s on every 15 year old boys mind, only difference is that these kids have come out and said it.

Yes. What a wonderful world it would be if everyone just uttered every thought that was on their minds.

Problem is, at the moment these kids think it’s OK to do what they’re doing.

And why exactly isn’t it OK?

I say if its okay and healthy for 12 (ish) year old boys to wave such signs about, then its okay and healthy for 12 (ish) year old girls to get them out and flash them around whenever they please without being called sluts.

Afterall, why should the responsibility for upholding society’s morals still be with girls? Its bloody tiring and at 12 (ish) they need to conserve their energy for the copious amounts of homework that keep them up burning the midnight oil.

Goose. Gander. etc.

How the hell did you come to that conclusion? Get a life, honestly.

Thanks ever so for your concern, you’re very sweet for thinking of me, but I have one 😉

I’m just adding my opinion to the mix … did I do something wrong? Is that not what we’re supposed to do here? I’m sorry if I trod on your toes … I didn’t mean any offence.

I don’t have an issue (per se) with the boys and their signs … lets face it, they’re biologically primed for thinking about little else at that age. Just be nice if girls could be so free and public with their own thoughts at the same age. I just suspect, is all, that if this was a picture of girls doing a similar thing, we wouldn’t be calling it healthy and okay, that’s all … would you agree?

Thinking about some things is one thing, assuming it’s alright to behave towards others in such a way is something else. Missing learning that difference in one’s formative years is I suppose why football clubs now run training courses on how to behave with women. I almost feel a rant about about respect for other people but I can’t be bothered.

LOL The first signs art looks like a pair of balls!

Well in fairness he probably hadn’t seen any tits at the time he was making the sign. Hence the need for a sign.

Every girl I saw who showed their breasts, really didnt need alot of encouraging, they were loving it, getting a crowd of men excited…

girls who didnt, thought it was hilarious and just laughed it off.

Dont forget that we are witnessing something special here…. This is a moment that will be remembered forever by these young boys, to be drunkenly spoken about for years to come.

Cant anyone see that this is the moment that they found the body by the tracks, got the baseball back from The Beast, found One-Eyed Willies buried treasure and the day they skipped school went to the city and sang in a big parade…..

Im just happy we all got to share it together.

Ahh to be young again.

As has been said some of those kids are def younger than 15. I shudder to think that one day my 6 year old son might want to go to Summernats.

Man you need to find you a woman who loves her the simple life – $200 dollars for dinner? i’d be horrified. If the chick doesn’t like simple and classy without the price tag her tits probably aren’t as good as you think.

More disturbing were the grown men (30+) screaming tits out at clearly underage (about 15) girls. How would they feel if that was their daughter?
That said, I had a great time at ‘Nats. Shame a few ferals have to behave like idiots.

Maybe they just haven’t been weaned yet.

Awesome,
top notch effort that.

No, whats disgusting is the older moron’s pestering women to get the tits out. (not being ageist, but if you have kids (i.e. daughters) do you really want people pestering your daughter / sister to unload their rack??

they look about 12 – not 15.

What a disgrace. I know when I was 15 I was busy discussing witgenstein and playing backgammon over cocoa with my similarly minded friends. What 15 year old boy would want to see baps?

As a 15 year old many years ago at Summernats I did indeed enjoy seeing b00bies – however I don’t think I would have been game enough to hold up signs asking to see them.

That said these young’ns will hopefully learn a lesson from the RiotACT community about the perils of digital photography and the interweb.

The next generation of bogan.

Sad, really.

Its all good till your mum drives past……………..

Their parents must be so proud.
