December 2015 issue.
In the feature article about the Virgin Mary
“The World’s Most Powerful Woman” — pages 48 – 49.
This is the 4th topless picture that NatG has published in 2015.
All the females (as is invariably the case) have been highly tanned.
I, from old habits, call them ‘tribal’.
Interesting that I can’t remember seeing topless pictures
of pale skinned women. Not that I care.
Interesting that this picture actually was in the
‘Virgin Mary‘ article.
The prior two topless pictures appeared in the issue
featuring the pope.
If anything I am kind of glad.
As I mentioned in the very first post on this topic,
this to so many of us is NatG NOSTALGIA.
NatG used to have much, much more topless pictures
— albeit decades ago. All dusky ladies.
I know the first topless pictures I saw were in NatG
in the 1950s, when living in Ceylon.
IF you are wondering why I obliterated
the topless on two pictures shown here it had
NOTHING to do with censorship or prudity.
In those two pictures I am just NOT sure how old
the young ladies are!
Nudity/topless is one thing BUT I will not be party
to any that cross important ‘borders’.
This might be a last Hurrah now that conservative Fox News
Gallery of the National Geographic topless pictures since 2014.
Reverse chronological order.
Yes, I am indeed keeping count because NatG, for the longest time, due to some false sense of propriety, stopped printing pictures of topless tribal women — its well known hallmark, for long, in its ‘early days’.
As far as I can see these are #3 & #4 since January 2014 — though I might have missed some, despite my efforts to read each and every issue cover-to-cover. The prior two are at the very top of this post with links.
Have a chuckle. It is good for you.
