Because, in a reflection of ridiculous prudishness, they just removed a photo by vapor0278 "no they weren't really kissing, August 2006", which had been Photo of the Hour on the ground that it was offensive to parents (?) and children, although the persons there were, shall we say, more conventionally positioned.
I just had a message from the elves that they were not responsible for the removal, but that it was automatic because of a low average score (half of the votes were 1, the rest 10, one 9 and one 8). So if just a handful of people disapproves of a photo they can just go in and vote 1, and out it goes.
Well it wasn't my intention in posting my cartwheel photos but I do see your point. That being said, given the female to male ratio on this site and out there in general, it really doesn't take much to make men gape. It's just a cartwheel for crying out loud. If they want something to gape at you don't have to work very hard to see a lot more skin than that in a lot more interesting positions... especially here on the internet ;)
I am nobody but I think the "cartwheel" pics are great. It shows yuor awesome spirit. And this photo or any of your others can not come even close to how teens are going to school dressed or hanging out with their friends. Keep it up MGBC. For those who don't care to lok at it, don't look.
worth: How can a photo like this be viewed
as anything but a person expressing themselves
on the summit of a mountain??
I really don't understand the controversy!
If men can do it; women can too. As far as the mode of attire goes, I can only be glad
that you didn't experience a 'wardrobe
malfunction.' Awesome photo, MTBC-girl!!!
