It's commercialism, they want to catch people's eye and pull it to the paper to get them to read further, hook them and get them to buy a copy. I bet it worked and the issue sold better than normal.
    This picture is not sexual in any way. Hustler would go out of business if they all they showed was pictures like this.

    I like tattoos, but I have to admit that it's incredibly funny to me seeing a picture of a Jewish woman with a Star of David tattoo.

    Oh well, it just goes to show you that you can't please them all.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think that it shows the desperation of the NYT to sell their newspapers.

    Right there, some of her decisions in getting pregnant should have been reviewed, given her heritage.

    Being prudish when women's lives are at stake, is ridiculous.
    Exactly, this is much ado about nothing. How anyone can find this offensive is beyond me.

    Pretty ****ed up world you live in when an important Health Story like this is being frowned upon because you get to see a glimpse of a nipple and yet it wasn't that long ago that people were posting pictures of the Boston Bombing victims here and screaming blue murder because they didn't have access to pictures of Osama Bin swimming or the victims or the Sandy Hook School massacare.

    That's so messed up.

    Re: Is this offensive to you?

    It's certainly not offensive, but I fail to see what the picture has to do with breast cancer. A more fitting picture would have been of a single mastectomy.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
