Re: What century are we living in?

Mirrors must be in short supply in Kanasas. Apparently, the woman who was shocked and disgusted never sees her own breasts in the mirror everyday in the bathroom.

Americans are always shocked and disgusted by anything having to do with sex (Heck, this is feeding a baby. It's not even sex!), or at least that's what they claim in public. Judging by the pornucopia of adult channels on offer on cable, however, I'd say most "upstanding" Americans are just full of crap.

Frankly, I'm appalled that the picture only shows one of them. *It's blantant discrimation toward the other one that isn't being used at that point in time, since it is no less worthy of a cover shot.

I was thinking the same thing. A frontal shot would be much better.

Actually I was more shocked to see the baby! - It would have been a much better shot without the infant disrupting the view.

Re: What century are we living in?

yep, the word of the day is 'hypocrisy'. Along the line of Dads who don't want sex education in school yet subscribe to Playboy, Rush saying every druggie deserves jail time and goes to the victim of disease card when he gets caught, all the house members who had to resign from their post after decrying Clinton for immorality and being discovered to have done the same thing. Pro-life pro death penalty advocates and vice versa. Maybe my grandkids will inherit a more sane world. :P

Yes it is...it's about her husband's discomfort which is obviously a form of sexual repression.

Well, I've been waiting for Al's beaver, but now I just can't hold back any longer:

How can you tell which part of whose anatomy that kid has its lips kissing up to?
