Iridium Linden to Gavin Leigh:
‘Or perhaps you can make the breast without so much detail.‘
I wonder if someone ever said that Botticelli when looking at his ‘Venus’. Or about Michelangelo’s David. The latter - with private parts rather exposed - is to been seen on a very public, PG sim in Firenze. Teachers take their students there to see it. Parents take their kids there. Two nipples and a dick. On the market square, in Firenze. And we can’t even have artistic, statue-nipples on a grid where everybody is over 18?!
I agree with Laetizia and Dandellion on this one:
I demand an official apology on the Second Life blog, containing the words overzealous, overstepped, clear and boundary. I demand that the statue be allowed to stand on the intended spot, in her full nude glory, with a notecard giver next to it to give out the full text of said blog.
Although I would rephrase it a bit to: ‘For once dear Lindens, admit you have fucked up!’ How on
the grid earth do you expect business people to take us, the residents of Second Life, serious if you think we can’t even handle seeing an exposed nipple? *scratches behind her ears*
Update: VintLabs just released some freebie Nipplegate activism clothing. ;)
