like two freaking pixels?
they allow screenshots of people getting shot in the call of duty page, but two cartoon nipples and they come over all sensitive?

showing violence, like shooting people in the head in a game, is A ok, but a little bit of sex is bad?

what kind of frakked up world is it when the the moderators, or whoever, don't bat an eyelid at almost photo realistic images of people getting their heads blown off but a pair of cartoon nipples gets them all ban happy?

lastly, for the artist at the New Yorker, instead of drawing them fully clothed, maybe some fig leaves, that is the traditional garb of adam and eve i understand.
that would have kept the humour and satisfied the prudes at facebook.
