My stock answer to questions like, "Why are her breasts hanging out?" and "Why isn't she wearing pants?" is, "Because I'm not her mother." DH seems to be having some interesting conversations with Weston when I'm not around, too. We saw that magazine at the store the other day. Weston pointed to her chest & said, "Those are fake." The checker actually had to walk away because he was snorting while trying not to laugh.
70% of the U.S. population now lives in a state where same-sex marriage is legal. At 36 and counting!
Is it wrong that my first reaction was wow, she's cute??? Haha. At least this one model looks like she eats every once in awhile. Most of them are all ribs. Ew.
That's funny. I was being completely lighthearted, saying that it reminded me of this thread, not coming back to debate. I never said it shouldn't bother someone to see it in the grocery store (just like I didn't say that TV is the same venue as the grocery store, or that people have to watch American Idol)...I simply said it doesn't bother me, because my girls see it everywhere, and this was just another example of where they see it. I'm sorry if I offended you by coming back to make any type of comparison that you felt was not appropriate.

Today I took the kids out to lunch, and when we went to pay at the cashier, there was a newspaper lying there with a headline about the nanny who killed the children she was looking after. It was horrible. I flipped it over before my son saw it, and the guy behind the counter looked at me quizzically. I explained and he took a look himself and quickly moved the paper elsewhere.
News headlines like that bother me a lot more than sexy photos on a magazine cover. That said, I don't think any action should be taken to deal with it, it's just one of the things I have to handle as a parent.
