    Wow this is actually newsworthy? This seems to me to be CNN implicitly passing judgement on what constitutes valid artistic expression. I guess everyone should quietly and mindlessly stay within the safe and established boundaries of political correctness. Not the world I want to live in...

    CNN conspires to judge what is acceptable artistic expression. If you are going to be policing morality, at least title the piece as an op/ed.
