    I don't find it offensive in the slightest.

    It's obvious that it was put there to create controversy and sell more papers though.

    Like I said... the cover photo is not acceptable.

    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.
    What if the NY times wanted to talk about penis cancer and had a penis pic?

    Penises are a primary sexual characteristic, so probably not, same with vaginas. But I don't see the big deal about secondary sexual characteristics presented in a non-sexual context.

    Personally, in the grand scheme of things it appears very small. But they came up with boundaries back in the day for a reason. They had to draw a line somewhere and say this is what we'll respect for the sake of social etiquette. Now, I will definitely admit that in time some of those boundaries were in need of change or complete removal. But without good cause or argument others IMO need to still be kept in place. Without some form of tradition and values we'll become desensitized and confused to what our purpose and priorities are beyond self gratification. Even freedom and free expression need some restraint to the point where they don't infringe on others rights.

    I don't like public displays of intense physical intimacy. I think there's a time and place for everything and it's not anymore appealing to me than public nudity would be. When I was in my teens and twenties none of that would've bothered me very much, so it's somewhat dependent on other factors like age and circumstances.

    For example; there was a time when most actresses of a certain caliber tried to never show nipple, complete naked buttocks or exposed pubic area. Why? Because that was the line they wouldn't cross to keep it classy and try to stay in the A-list ratings for future top jobs. Were there exceptions? Of course there is almost always, inevitably going to be someone who doesn't fall into a certain category or there's only been minor incidents but it was for the most part accepted as a general, unwritten rule. I believe it was just one of the codes including ability and other qualifications the producers used in who they'd accept, especially new talent.

    This concept applied to TV, film, magazines and basically any public exposure of what was considered lewd behavior. The point being that if some nipple exposure is suddenly okay, then how much more will we accept? Complete bare breasts? Total frontal nudity? Who's going to say where the new line is drawn and when? Twerking is acceptable? Next Awards Show will we have Jerking? Is it all fine if children see it?

    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.
    Not really a sliver a bit more than that .
