Hang on, people, don’t look below the fold if you are easily offended. I’m including a horrific photo that was shown on a magazine cover, one that elicited the following reactions from readers:
“I was SHOCKED”
“I was offended and it made my husband very uncomfortable when I left the magazine on the coffee table”
“Gross, I am sick”
“I had to rip off the cover since I didn’t want it laying around the house”
Are you ready for this?
Here’s the hideous cover in question. Hide the horses! Call in a hazmat team to scrub that image away! Would you believe 25% of that magazine’s readers were offended by the breast on the cover?
I really am shocked at the level of prudery we get in this country. That’s not a prurient photo, it illustrates a perfectly lovely and healthy function, and no one should be harmed by its display.
It does seem a bit unfair that I can flaunt my pale and hairy torso without triggering the hue and cry that tastefully shot baby picture did. I think. Maybe I should try.
Uh-oh. There go all my readers, off to subscribe to babytalk instead.
Come on, this is Minnesota. Almost all of us are this shade of fishbelly pale up here.
Now the real question is, which of those pictures would you rather have left out on your coffee table?
