Because the internet always needs something to be mad about, the latest “outrage” is that the female Mandalorians in the Disney+ show “The Mandalorian” have chest plates with breasts. Of course they do, where else are they supposed to put their boobs? Most women have breasts larger than an A-cup. The average bra cup size is a C-cup.
Lady Mandalorian’s have boob armour? Oh come on seriously. pic.twitter.com/Tl7dpX4EBQ

a lot of these comments seems to miss understand her she never said boob plate was bad. And it sounds like it just took her out of the show. Which is valid. She not trying to kill your b**er, chill guys.

Of course Twitter was quick to point out that it makes sense and that the armour design is consistent with it’s usage in the source material:
The same armour as it is depicted in The Clone Wars series. You would know that if you were actually interested in Star Wars and less interested in complaining about anything.

As a big boobed woman, I would WANT my boobs shaped out in the armor. Having them smashed down for the sake of “not looking sexy” is ridiculous.

Anita, I hope you’re sitting down, because I have something very important and perhaps shocking to tell you.
Women have boobs.

It’s not “boob armor”. It’s female body armor. Not everything is sexual. Sometimes it’s just practical. pic.twitter.com/3VktDZC1CR

Accurate to the original source material, original voice actress playing the role in Live Action, & Katee Sachhoff talked about menstruation & tampon usage in her YouTube channel recently for her “How I Train My Body for Film & Television” video because guess what is a woman. pic.twitter.com/uUeqUxUepP

She appeared years ago in the Clone Wars TV Show with a near identical design pic.twitter.com/7G6XaAPlia

As someone who has deployed to combat, with women, who also wears the same body armor as those women, (real body armor) I can tell you they would have loved to have had something that conforms to their body type. Men and women are different. Get over it

The armour has room for breasts, and the extra area isn’t even that pronounced. It isn’t like they have giant, rounded, breast cups here.
But they used to have that!

Some women are flatter and can wear a “male” modeled chest plate, but most women aren’t. If they made all the women look like the men, other people would get upset. Especially after years of memes joking about how they dress female warriors in a lot of games. Star Wars has made the necessary improvements.

It’s today’s outrage on Twitter. I guess people are over Baby Yoda eating the Frog Lady’s eggs now? Can’t wait to see what next week’s outrage is.
