Well, the first shows she's quite tasteful, the second might be
a problem during physical education, no?  (But I realise you didn't
mean it that way).

The question is, who would install the package on her computer?
She surely wouldn't.  She'd probably dodge the pr0n-sites on the
Internet too.  Why worry?

Sure, I didn't say otherwise.  Of course, it depends on what you're
doing commercials for.  If it's underwear, I can see the point.  Then
again, the market for underwear is probably not big enough to warrant
billboard ads with supermodels; they are rather an excuse for using
semi naked surgically modified anorectics to sell everything else
the stores have to offer.  That's sad, but as long as people
keep buying their products, the ads will continue.

intelligent daughter.

Objectifying women is indeed degrading, both to women and men.
Naked people as such isn't, it's natural and beatiful.
