Trouble In Nipple Paradise


The New Yorker recently posted a cartoon which features a naked, and post-coital, Adam and Eve to their Facebook page. What resulted was a kerfuffle between the magazine and social media site over their nudity regulation policies. Specifically, Facebook took issue with Eve’s cartoon nipples, leading to the magazine’s Facebook page being temporarily shut down.

Facebook’s policies are clearly laid out in The New Yorker’s coverage of the incident. Naked genitals, butt cracks, and female “nipple bulges” are a no go for the site, but rest assured – male nipples are welcome.
