When a male Twitter user questioned women’s decision to wear sheer shirts, a young woman called him out leading to a wave of others to follow her lead.

Yung Jules, a rapper from Newark, N.J., wondered about a new trend that could take over this summer. The Thursday, April 20, tweet featured an image of model Bernice Burgos in a sheer top and singer Paloma Ford in a mesh dress.

Quenlin Blackwell, a student from Dallas, Texas, caught wind of the tweet and responded two days later.

Blackwell’s tweets racked up many responses from other users on both sides of the debate and received tens of thousands of retweets and likes.

A pair of Twitter users engaged in a back and forth over whether or not women should be able to expose their breasts.

Some women spoke up in favor of freeing the nipple.

And men voiced support for women doing what they want with their bodies.

Several people directly fired back at Jules’ tweet, calling out his sexist double standard.

One man didn’t want men to be blamed for their behavior when they see women’s nipples.

When the Jules felt the heat, he asserted women should do what they want.
