It seems to me you are obsessed with the breasts in
that image. If someone argues
against an image with breasts, it is censorship.
If someone argues against hosting some Wikimedian's
but undistinguished Thomas Kinkade pastiche in
Commons, would you also shout
censorship? Probably not, I guess, because the
censorship argument requires
that there be breasts in the image.
Censorship does not require there be breasts or "fuck" or
It's just the only arguments I've seen about why this image
should not be
on the main page are that it contains breasts.
If you want to complain that it should not be on the main
it's a poor pastiche then that's a very different issue
that is not
censorship related, but not one that I've seen made and so
not one I've
made any comments about.
Kind of proves my point ... the breasts overshadowed everything. ;)
Compare this one from the same artist:
Far less ambitious, totally within his artistic means, and a much better
illustration of Manga drawing style. That's a FP in that area; the other one
