Old and busted: The Turkish Mavi Marmara incident
New hotness (yet still busted): The Turkish Marbles Mammary incident (hat tip: Challah on Twitter)
YouTube personality Jenna Marbles has uploaded a video on her channel to explain to conservative Turkish columnist Yüksel Aytuğ how sports bras work after the latter wrote a piece complaining about “flat-chested, man-like” female Olympians.
Marbles addressed Aytuğ in her video, calling him “ponytail,” and telling him he had no idea about the female body because he had mistakenly called every swimmer who appeared to have small breasts as flat-chested and “man-like.” She went on to enlighten her male audience about the sports bra, used by women during sporting events and workouts, and how it flattened the breasts for comfort.
“You would have a blackout if you went jogging without a sports bra … that’s how painful it is,” Marbles said. She then went on to demonstrate how dramatic an effect sports bras had on the female physique by donning one, looking exactly like the “flat-chested” swimmers whom Aytuğ had criticized for forgoing their “symbols of womanhood” for the sake of sports. Marbles then wore a regular bikini top and demonstrated that her previous look was simply caused by the attire she was wearing.
As for me, I have to wonder why a conservative Turkish columnist would be staring at a woman’s chest to begin with.
