Two French men have created Boobstagram, a website that collects Instagrams of women’s breasts as a part of the “fight against breast cancer.“(They also subscribe to Playboy for the articles.)

Making use of the backlogs of lingerie pics on Instagram, Boobstagram has compiled 54 pages of images and uses the tagline (translated from French) “Showing breasts on the web is good, show[ing] them to a doctor is better.” There are currently 24,322 pictures tagged #boobstagram on Instagram.

But we can all take our share of prevention, for ourselves, for our loved ones and others. But how? How to be heard in the public sphere saturated with messages? How to avoid the pitfall of moralism?”

Boobstagram’s Facebook page has almost 5,000 likes and features the “boob of the day,” and comments include “Now this would be worth a billion dollars, Mark!
