Nirvana, "Nevermind"   (frabricion)

(Newser) – Nirvana's artistic choices are apparently a little too risque for Facebook: The band's iconic 1991 Nevermind cover has become the latest image banned by the social network, which says the picture of a naked baby boy violates Facebook's terms of use. A photo of the album, soon to have its 20th anniversary, was uploaded to Nirvana's Facebook page and then removed by the site, notes the Hollywood Reporter.

Spencer Elden, the now-20-year-old displayed on the cover, has said the picture makes him "the world's biggest porn star." Click to see his recreated version of the famous shot.

It sounds dumb i know...but i totally agree that showing children's genitals --albeit in a innocent frame-- is no longer alright --not in these days; not in this day and day and time with all the sickos lurking-- there are so many pedophiles and predators out here that could use or reprint/reproduce this photo and turn it into something abominable! BRACO FACEBOOK! You make me Proud to be a member!

It's kinda like we peaked as a society right around Kurt's death, then we just fell backwards and everything is bad and off limits now. I don't know why, but it reminds me of movies like Airplane, where it was fun and popular to poke at each other because we were all people. Now...I don't know. It's just strange that bombers run free, presidents aren't elected, genocides are well funded, sex is no longer taboo, pot is worse than meth and babies aren't allowed to be naked.
