  1. If you like the poster enough to look at it everyday and it is meaningful to you, then I vote you get it for your house. If you have a visitor who is bold or comfortable enough to express they think it is objectification, then you have an opportunity for an interesting conversation.

  2. Hard to say. I've never seen a clear definition that allows people to determine what is and isn't. It's an amazing image though.

  3. If I saw it in someone's home, I would smile and take it in as a piece of art. I agree with Ruthie--great conversation piece. It's a bold, beautiful, colorful image, and it holds significance in our pop culture. If you like it, go for it.

    Besides, lots of famous art has butts in it. :)

  4. Thanks all. I think I'm getting it, if I can find the right spot for it.
