As a person from a more nordic and perhaps even ruder than brazilian
culture, We did confront a teacher who was in her retirement age with
images worse than genital piercings. And, yes, she not only blushed
but turned livid, But she kept on teaching us biology. ! Not saying
what we did was right, as kids. Not saying she shouldn't have done
more to get the stuff from being thrown about. But there is a point
there about tolerances. If an elderly lady was able to keep teaching
while being bombarded with images of withered old female genitals
being inserted with electrical appliance cable stashing piping, why
can't wikipedia? I know this sounds totally offensive on the face of
it, but surely that is the whole point. Being against censorship only
matters when there is a potential outrage there...
