I need to throw my two cents in the pot before I go crazy from reading one too many letters to the editor involving a half-naked breast.

When I saw the CPSalsa poster, I thought it was a fire woman getting off work and getting ready to relieve some stress by doing a little Salsa dancing. I don’t think it is my, the CPSalsa club’s, or the rest of the world’s problem if someone can’t help themselves from thinking lustful thoughts about a half-naked breast, or feeling that no one should reveal half of a nice perky boob since theirs aren’t quite as perky as they used to be.

Personal issues, such as those, should be addressed personally. Go see a psychologist or meditate, but don’t try and take it out on the rest of the world by destroying other people’s property or forcing them to put ridiculous stickers on their posters, and therefore defeating the purpose of the poster. The posters look like crap now, they are eyesores on campus and serve as poor advertisements. It doesn’t seem to be much of a problem because with the amount of publicity they have received they probably wont need to advertise ever again.

The moral of the story is that the body is a beautiful thing. It is god’s finest creation and should be appreciated and shared, I mean, why not? We all have one. Who decided that vagina, breasts, butts and penis’ should all be taboo. I have an ear lobe fetish. Should we start covering them up too? If we all opened up our minds a little bit and took our blinders off, maybe we could appreciate the body for what it is. Or we could go the other route and have women wear Burkas because some people don’t feel it is decent or appropriate to see a woman’s ankles.
