    I dont find it offensive but going by how overly sensitive our society is I can see how it became a story.

    I wasn't really satirizing you. Rather I was mocking society in general as well as this forum's policy on nudity.

    I think most people can manage to stay on topic. Even when confronted with a nipple.

    Both. Back and forth. And to the tattoo. And the headlines. A tiny sliver of areola is not that interesting to me really. I recognize its controversy and that is what draws my attention moreso than the nipple's allure in and of itself. If showing female nipples wasn't such an asinine societal taboo, the edge of nipple in that photo wouldn't be distracting to anyone at all.

    The picture doesn't offend me but the fact that you asked me if it is offensive offends me...

    Seriously though, why do breasts and nipples have to be sexualised when presented in a non-sexual context. An article about breast cancer should be able to show a naked breast if it wants, because it's relevant to the topic. That most people can't see a bit of nipple without thinking sex speaks a lot about the maturity of American society.

    tell that to the people who run this place... you can be perma-banned for showing nip, regardless of the context
