Day Five



"Porn" goes on the top shelf.
Art goes on the bottom shelf.
And you're only reading this because the article description says "Boobies", right?

I put "porn" in quotes as the definition is entirely subjective. Mumsnet may well melt down at the picture above, while the French are "meh" and stack this stuff at toddler height. As it happens, one cannot attempt to rationally define what is "pornography" as everybody has different ideas of what is and is not. Justice Potter Stewart famously defined (Jacobellis v. Ohio, 1964) a harder variety as "I know it when I see it" which, of course, remains just as subjective.
What walks like a duck and quacks like a duck might actually be a pigeon to somebody who has never seen a duck before.
