Ah, so you don't think it was offensive, you just wanted to
share in the fun. Fair enough.

Is equality and self image so fragile as to be threatened by
nude cartoons? Me, i am not sure I feel threatened by the gay porn,
femdom, and transgender pornography out there. I prefer to let
people do whatever turns them on in the privacy of their homes, as
long as I am not forced to participate. I have no interest forcing my
mores down other peoples throats. (Indeed, if our users want to see
porn, should we not be facilitating this use of the machine?)

In that case, I am glad this has come up early enough so
people know the nature of the beast they are trying to be a part of.
