Eliminating Obscenities

The entire point of Joyce Bellentyne-Brand's Coppertone illustration was to show the little girl's tan line, and therefore hightlight the effectiveness of the suntan lotion.

Extreme right-wing Christians have created such pressure to "eliminate obscenities" that companies like Coppertone are now covering up something that was perfectly acceptable in the 1950's. The ad no longer even makes sense.

Isn't it ironic that the US has killed thousands and has spent billions to "bring freedom" to Iraq, yet within the US itself the government each day takes away freedoms from Americans that they have enjoyed for decades?

Now THAT is obscene!
