Tits! Breasts! Boobies! Jugs!

I am so tired of my breasts (well, not my breasts, specifically) being considered as indecent. More than 50% of the world has them (100% if you count men), so what's the fucking big deal? Check out this article:

Muralist's vision has jail staring him in face

This guy got 30 days in jail, two years' probation, and a $500 fine for violating a city sign ordinance. He painted a mural on the side of his art studio that was an adaptation of Michaelangelo's "Creation," which included the word "love" and included a topless Eve. He has been ordered to "tastefully" cover Eve's breasts and to paint over the word "love" (which violated some ordinance about words being on signs) before he reports to jail. Oh, and apparently breasts are considered "genitalia" in this town. What the hell?

I'm pissed. Actually, I'm almost livid. Aren't you? You should be.

Yanna: Went to the "Body Worlds" exhibition today at the museum of science and industry (as an aside to this comment I highly recommend this exhibit).

Anywho...incase you don't know anything about this exhibit...its all about the human body..and specifically exhibits of the human body..skinless and exposed.

So they had many slices of the female body and in one of the displays of breasts described them as "part of the female sexual organs". I just don't get that at all. I mean...yeah...nipples can be aroused...but so can male nipples....earlobes can contribute to arousal...but I've never heard them describes as sexual organs or genitalia.

I guess we still have a long way to go.
