Miley out shopping with her mom on Tuesday (4/10)

Miley Cyrus and her mom were seen out shopping in Calabases, CA yesterday (4/10). During the day, Miley tweeted "I ❤ Mommy and me days. She makes me so happy." with a cute picture of the pair.

Check out the mother/daughter shopping pics behind the cut!

why is it disgusting tho? you cant even see her boob, you see a sideboob.. im pretty sure those dont even offend the MPAA enough to get an R rating, u usually need nipple

i mean ia wearing a shirt that's so low-cut down the side isn't the qtest thing and could result in awkward situations, yes, it's not particularly culturally acceptable for women to walk around naked (though why it's okay for men to walk around with shirts i'll never understand. male nipples r sensitive 2, and breasts arent a ~sex organ~, those are located below the belt)... but regardless, in none of these pictures can you actually see her breasts. the shirt manages to keep them covered.

and even if she did have a nip slip or something, saying that's "disgusting".. i mean, i'm assuming you're a girl too, right? do you realize how much you're perpetuating misogyny and basically insinuating that the female body is gross and breasts are something to be ashamed of? you may not have exactly meant that by making that comment, but you are contributing to the general misogyny of our society. why are breasts disgusting? why that word choice?

I'm not saying breast are disgusting or gross. I'm saying that why would she go out in public wearing a shirt that you can see it. Thats what im calling gross. in my mind i guess was comparing to a high school student wearing it and how she would looked down on and called on. What im saying is i dont find it appropriate to wear a shirt that shows your 'side boob' in public around people which she wears a lot from now and there.

I'm sure it wasn't your exact intention, I was just trying to bring your attention to something common that a lot of us do without realizing-- making negative comments about our own gender, bodyshaming, slutshaming-- and it needs to stop. She's not walking around topless, there was no wardrobe malfunction, I really don't see the big deal. And you're still harping on the shirt being "appropriate"... like who the hell decides that? She was going shopping, not to church.

And you did use the word "disgusting", and that is quite an emotionally charged word when talking about people's bodies. It shouldn't be considered disgusting to catch a glimpse of someone's sideboob--- we all have breasts, what is so gross about it? You're sexualizing an outfit that's not even all that traditionally "sexy" to begin with, based off of a body part that everyone has. Because you can see the side of her breast, it's 'trashy' or 'disgusting' or 'slutty'... like, why?

Miley's not a high school student, she wasn't walking around a school area, and yeah she'd probably be sent to the principal's office for wearing that, because schools have dress codes. real life doesn't. for damn good reasons.

and IDK i got called out by the school principle for revealing too much of my collarbone before, I was wearing a halter dress with a cardigan.. I have no boobs, the only skin that was showing was my lower arms, my calves, and like my upper chest skin...nothing remotely sexual, and I was basically told to cover up my collar bones. meanwhile, i had the wonderful pleasure of seeing boxers every damn day because apparently no one can afford a belt, and the only parts of the dress code worth enforcing were the girls being too ~ provocative.

And to further my point about the misogyny and uselessness of school dress codes, iirc most schools have like, rules against wearing tank tops at all. Or the straps have to be dollar-bill width. And shorts have to be above a certain length, even though it's practically impossible to find shorts in any stores that adhere to the "finger length" rule or whatever inane dress code rule that school goes by. But these things are only for girls ofc, because it's always the girls who are tempting the boys into having dirty thoughts and distracting them from their schoolwork~ because boys will be boys and ofc they can't control themselves, ever.

and really, what is ACTUALLY wrong with going out in public with a shirt like that? who is she harming? do you get offended when you see guys walking around shirtless? because i really don't see a difference, except for guys showing more skin. you can argue "oh but female breasts are sexualized in our culture" and you'd be right, yeah, they are, but how is oogling breasts any different from the women on the today show asking taylor lautner to lift up his shirt and expose his pecs and abs on live, MORNING, television? arent shirtless males, especially famous ones, something girls usually flip their shit over? i certainly saw it two nights ago when the boys from one direction were shirtless at the beach, but you don't see anyone telling men to cover up.

there's a huge double standard, and you're contributing to it, probably based off of some 'moral code' that you were raised on--- and since you're american i'm going to assume you were raised christian, so your positions certainly make sense, i was raised by and live with christians and was one for a very long time.... but religion has a long, solid past of keeping women down for the sake of their own power and to preserve the patriarchy that's been in place for centuries.

and we're raised with these sexist "moral" ideas, raised to feel ashamed of our own bodies and sexual feelings and desires and conditioned to attack anyone who goes against this (how many girls do you know in high school who get called a slut who've had one, MAYBE two sexual partners? i haven't been in HS in 5 years but i vividly remember girls being called sluts, by other girls, for having sex with their long-term boyfriends. "code" of morality, where women are supposed to be chaste, innocent, and pretend to not like sex, while men are free to have as many sexual partners as they want and are rewarded for it with high fives and "attaboy!s".

i know this comment is basically a novel, but it's important. i'm not trying to pick on you, i'm really not. i'm not saying you're a bad person, or you hate women, or anything like that, i'm just trying to point some things out to you and hopefully educate you or anyone else who may stumble across this thread. maybe not 'educate' necessarily, i'm not an educator, but maybe it'll make you or someone else stop and think a little bit about these issues. because if you are a woman, they do affect you.

but she's not in high school, she's almost 20. obviously there would be dress code against that in high school, they don't even allow males to wear muscle tees like that which show their sides. basically if your'e so appalled at the site of female anatomy (even though guys have tits also, sometimes bigger than my own) i would say don't step too far outside your front door, you never know what you might see!!
