British art student Eleanor Beth Haswell is the latest creative mind who is trying to teach us that a woman's private parts are nothing to be scared of.
The 18-year-old has created nude-coloured underwear that shows a labeled diagram of the female reproductive system as part of her project, "Why are you so afraid of your own anatomy?”
Also included in the project is a bra that's made to look like breasts, labeled nipples and all (#educateyourself).
"As I was focusing on an art project based on body shaming at the time, I began to notice a lot more shaming online, especially in the UK," Haswell told the Huffington Post Canada. "It's the nipple that's deemed to be the issue, the fact that both men and women have them yet a woman's must be censored. I just don't understand how people claim that we don't need feminism, but are offended by something as innocent as the nipple, and are happy to create a divide to suggest that a woman who does what she wants with her body is unacceptable."
She added: "This piece isn't being gender specific, suggesting that all women have this particular anatomy, it was a question on anyone who chooses to shame women, those who would find it acceptable to wear a bra that would almost look like a breast from a distance, but be relieved at the thought of a woman being covered up. Those who think there is a major difference between the acceptance of a man's chest to a woman's. And to those who are happier for one gender to do what they want, be with who they want and show what they want over another."
Naturally, the Twitterverse was divided on the graphic undies.
I'm not a guy, but I have to imagine that seeing #VaginaPants on a girl in the midst of having sex would be something of a buzzkill— Michele Frost (@michelelfrost) July 21, 2014

I think the #vaginapants thing is so cool! Can't understand why anyone feels the creeps about human anatomy!— Abbie Whatshername (@Abbie_STL) July 22, 2014
What do you think of the underwear? Would you wear it?
