    I've put it back up but under a spoiler. Tery's point still holds, though. We do have kids come to the site to do a school report so we try to keep the nudity to a minimum. Had that been an actual photo of a woman I wouldn't have allowed it.

    I can appreciate the artistic talent it took to create it but as a feminist I do have a problem with the need to portray women as not much more than T&A. Yeah, I'm one of those. ;;D :smile:

    Incidentally, you can thank underground comix legend Trina Robbins for Vampirella's skimpy apparel. She designed the outfit. Robbins is a class act, and feminist role model.

    I'll agree to disagree with her about the objectification of women with the outfit. ;)

    Must say, that outfit looked way uncomfortable to wear on an everyday basis. Gotta give her props for that.

    My youngest son looked exactly like him when he was born. Maaaaan, he was an ugly baby.

    It's not as uncomfortable as you would think.

    Why is this funny? It shouldn't be, but it is. . :snicker:

    I just re-read SL and truly, it's the gift that keeps on giving.
    It feels as if SK jumped into a pool of words and swam around and dived and surfaced and went down again. . and had the time of his life.
    But, I'm really a zombie-loving gal who's incredibly proud of Englishman Andrew Lincoln playing Rick Grimes in TWD:okay:

    Sorry, I digress.
    If you have to have vamps (that sex-and-death combo doesn't work for me), then make them totally immoral, terrifying and generally gross as the crew in Thirty Days of Night (No Twilight-style Sehnsucht for those vampires from teenage girls, I think).
    Or Wesley (why-didn't-I-pay-my-taxes?) Snipes as Blade, the anti-vamp - now there's a vamp I worth rooting for!

    I'm re-reading this post now - it sounds ferociously anti-vamp - but no disrespect to vamp fans intended.
    Thanks folks:eagerness:
