The wickedness that is women's nipples [Jan. 8th, 2010|08:28 am]
[mood |annoyedannoyed]

Just a reminder that women's nipples in art should be covered, lest we head down the slippery slope towards the death of civilisation as we know it.

Personally, I'm in favour of the death of civilisation as we know it.

Brings to mind Stephen King's The Stand though.

What in particular about The Stand? Haven't read it.

I do like that the article points out that this same town ran a 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" campaign at one point. Yeah, so painted nipples will lower the moral tone of the place.

The fact they didn't even ask the artists back to paint the pasties on annoys me no end. The stickers look crap, and just whacking them on there is disrespectful to the artists.

Unless I am getting my SK's mixed up (which is always possible), it *is* about the end of the world, but eventually a whole bunch of survivors end up in Las Vegas, and it's the whole religious zealots vs the hedonists thing.

Las Vegas? Upset with nipples?

Las Vegas is actually an oddly conservative place. The styles of acceptable hedonism are very tightly prescribed. Despite the people handing out cards in the street advertising escort agencies, it was also the only city I've been to in the US where I was advised against wearing my d-ring chain shirt; I did anyway, but certainly got less welcoming looks than I had in San Francisco, or would have expected in New York or Ann Arbor.

Our Vegas taxi driver was certainly a very dyed in the wool Republican (Australians are Good Friends of the US, Obama is destroying the economy, etc etc etc).

And once you're more than a couple of km from the strip, you're suddenly in bland suburban sprawl America. I queued in a post office for a little while, then went walking in search of busses or taxis - I could have been anywhere.

said cards have blobs or stars photoshopped over the nipples.
