Please explain how does one participate when their employment contract specifically states that viewing of sexually explicit material over the internet is a dismissable offense.

The issue isnt hosting the image its about where its displayed.

As I previously wrote, and perhaps Tobias is still catching up on emails, there are plenty of places in the United States where this image would be inappropriate to display.

I give lectures, about Wikipedia. I pull up Wikipedia and Commons often in front of large groups of people - college students, museum colleagues, PhD candidates, college professors - if you think this image is the best we have to show these people "oh we're serious, oh, you should contribute" then I'm fighting the wrong fight.

And yeah, boobs, butts or whatever - I'm surprised someone hasn't pulled out the "but...National Geographic..." card yet.
