Breasts -- now against a TOS near you
LiveJournal Abuse doesn't like breasts. Not in art, and not feeding babies. They used to forbid inappropriate default user icons, defined as sexual or violent, with the reasoning that offensive icons should not be displayed on areas of LJ where someone could come across them by accident. But now they have extended that to any view of a naked breast with any nipple showing, whether it's on a piece of art or breast-feeding mothers. The breast-feeders are not happy, and drama has errupted.
LJ Abuse is thought to have gotten over 700 emails in protest. Are they listening to their users? No, they are closing ranks behind the stupid decision, just like usual.
How did this craziness come about? It started when LJ Abuse told hardvice his post-modern art icon was breaking the rules. You can read the details on hardvice's LJ.
Is this an obscene image?
