istara:

Miley's puerile (and even spiteful) response has made me lean in support of Sinead, which I never thought I would find myself doing. She should have just ignored it.

Amanda Palmer's article also misses the point of what Sinead is saying. And this is a complete strawman:

    In other words, let’s give our young women the right weapons to fight with as they charge naked into battle, instead of ordering them to get back in the house and put some goddamn clothes on.

The message is actually that you don't NEED to charge naked into battle. You can keep your clothes on (figuratively speaking - I have no issue with nudity per se), and win on your own terms. Or, more simply put:

"No need to lick the sledgehammer."
