Too old for Facebook nudity?

    There is an old college acquintance of mine, a woman, who is a frequent poster of photos of her daughter, who is going to be in first grade next year. I would say she averages posting a posed shot of her once a day, perhaps a little more.

    So yesterday, she posted a photo of the little girl, who I assume is 6, standing on the porch, shirtless, holding a pepper from their garden.

    It said something like, "She's so happy to finally have picked her favorite pepper!" Something banal like that.

    But shirtless.

    I felt uncomfortable with it.

    Should I have?

    This has so much potential...

    You brought the popcorn, right? I like mine like I like my elves, hot and buttered.

    I'm guessing that pepper really dug her?

    Seriously, though, I would not put a topless pick of my seven-year-old online to answer your question. I think once you hit school age, being topless in public is not age appropriate. College age, yes. Elementary, no.

    Very well said sir. I concur. Especially on that penultimate sentence.

    I just wanted to use the word penultimate today. Carry on.

    Dooley hates you for using that word.

    I also agree with devil's theory.

    That and you really wanted to express a positive opinion of college age women being topless. :)

    Why? I don't know that story. And where the hell is Dooley lately anyway?

    Here is how it's going to go -- Dick will post something about it. The woman's friends will note that the girl looks no different now than a boy does. Then they will note that eventually, what he's objecting to will be used for breastfeeding.

    And there's no more violent activist group on Facebook than breastfeeding moms. White supremacists aren't as scary as breastfeeding moms.

    Make sure to post a link when this happens.

    What if the breastfeeding mom tattoos her breasts with the confederate flag?
