I think there are people here who think any display of nudity or eroticism is inherently oppressive.
What would be preferable to pearl clutching- "finger wagging"?

There's a difference between not personally liking something, even thinking it "sucks"... and being offended by it to the extent of wanting to argue it out of existence. Mind you, there IS a small, dedicated pro-censorship contingent here, not to say that you're part of it.

I simply don't agree that portrayals of women in lingerie in a sexual context = "sexism". But I agree, they could have put some men in there, made it more inclusive. :shrug:
