What's the big deal?, she asks.
"I thought [the picture] was funny and silly," she writes on the Web site The Daily Beast. "Within a few hours I had caused a minor media scandal. I spent most of the next day thinking about what exactly was so shocking about the picture. It’s not like I was caught making a sex tape."
"Could it be it's because I have breasts? Because for those of you who didn't know, I have two," McCain, 24, writes. "They're larger than some women's and not as big as others. I don't usually show off my cleavage – as I did in the photos I posted – which I will admit is not the smartest thing I have ever done. But it’s just not worth the drama it caused."
McCain, who was at the center of drama earlier this year after a political commentator likened her to a “plus-size model,” says the criticism of her body is getting old.
"For years I have struggled to accept the fact that the way I look in a tank top comes off more ‘sexual’ than a flat-chested woman," she writes. "And once again I was reassured by the media that someone with my cup size should always be covered up. Or what, I’ll be seen as a slut? Put me in a tank top and I am suddenly an embarrassment to the Republican Party and women everywhere. The double standard is infuriating."
