Cara Delevingne explains #freethenipple in a simple infograph

The Chanel and Mulberry girl breaks down the Instagram taboo for us

Following Rumer Willis, Scout Willis, and Rihanna's protests against Instagram's anti-nudity content, British model Cara Delevingne took #freethenipple a step further, and it didn't involve her walking around naked or organising a fundraising event.

The kooky lass posted a cheeky but useful photo of a man and woman, both topless, with the perfect explanation of why #freethenipple matters.

While both breasts comprise the exact same structure, the uncensored man's nipple is fine to go public sans censorship, whereas the woman's has the dreaded 'X' mark on it. The premise is easy to understand: why should there be a difference between how we perceive a man or woman's breast?

While Cara toys with Instagram's policy – she recently posted a nude photo of herself (shown below) with only a stop sign and flashlights to hide the offending bodyparts – none of her posts will get her banned from Instagram because – to put it crudely – no female nipples have been exposed yet.

Please, Cara, don't get yourself kicked off Instagram. You're our only hope.
