Is That Nipple!?

Though I am a 29-year-old father of one, I am still a major fan of pictures of scantily-clad ladies. I also believe in the freedoms of the First Amendment and artistic value. However, I do have a problem with the provocative American Apparel ads that run on the first few pages, especially the ones showing exposed areolas. Selling sex does not display artistic value, it devalues it. And the validity of the writings of your free paper are cheapened by this material. Free thoughts and ideas should be widely expressed, but not at the expense of teaching women how not to think.
