    I don't enjoy they showed part of the areola because it was unnecessary , the female could have worn a different bra that would show the scar and not the areola it distracts the readers attention from the issue at hand to just the picture . Let us be honest what was the first thing you focused on when first viewing the picture the scar and what it means or the breast and its showing of the nipple . Be honest

    I was offended because they didn't show the entire nipple....and a little bit of bush

    Thank God they only showed a sliver of the areola. Society isn't ready for the full nip.

    Unless you're a guy. Or prepubescent. Then full nip is fine.

    Why on Earth would this offend me?

    Why would I even care much?

    Because it shows the top of her areola?

    Oh, heaven forbid....

    Agreed! This is outrageous!

    And where are the mods????? Mods, we've got a link to areola slivers here!!!! I demand you remove it and ban the poster! My God, take the link down before an innocent child accidentally clicks on it! Why, the poor child might get the impression adult women have nipples!!!

    Here's why the NY Times did it - to force attention on the issue of breast cancer. It worked and it worked very well! Good for the Times. I thought I'd never say that.

    Honestly, how much discussion nationally or even on this board would there have been if the NYT had used a pink ribbon graphic instead? Very little. If tight arsed Americans have a problem with it it's doubtful that most of them read the NYT to start with.

    One does wonder what the reaction would have been if it had been a cross instead.

    No - I don't let tattoos and some nip offend me. You see more in all those 'nursing baby pro-mom' shots that pop up everywhere.
    You actually see more riding on a bus.
