Sexist Comments of the Week: Responsible Cleavage Edition

Watch where you're tilting those things
Last week, I wrote about how women with big boobs are perceived as inherently sluttier than those of us with minimal cleavage. In response, large-breasted women everywhere emerged to tell their stories. (I told you I was committed to blogging about boobs today.) Talk about your boobs in 3, 2, [...]
