Nipples on Facebook
Facebook recently deemed nipples obscene, including images of women breastfeeding (seriously, people, when will that end? It's natural.)
In response, a young artist named Phil Hansen decided to test the limits of "decency"—and perhaps time-suckage—with an art project. He photographed his nipples and then proceeded to post a profile picture constructed entirely of said nipples to his Facebook page.
Awesome on two counts. Number one, it takes a real man to showcase the most useless part of the male anatomy in such a delightful and cheeky way. Second, it's a great commentary on the fact that women's exposed areas of flesh are constantly construed as obscene while men can walk around sans shirts as they see fit. While I can understand Facebook wanting to keep especially young users from posting provocative photos to the site, a flat-out ban on nipples seems a little heavy-handed.
