You should note that the clitoris pictures currently are, and have been
for upwards of a year, included in the English Wikipedia.
Also, nobody has seriously suggested removing them: the argument has
been over whether to have them inline or linked. There is no measurable
support for actually suppressing their availability, so I don't see the
similarity---they will be there in some shape or form regardless of
which side in the argument prevails.
