A molded piece of plastic is obscene? Did it have all the ins and outs of a real female? With all the parts showing? Bet it did not even have a belly button to show it was human.

Seriously People!!!!! GET A LIFE!!!!!
It's a piece of plastic. And They have been in all the stores for many years now. HELLO they need to change the clothes on them...

Instead why don't you complain about the women who breast feed thier children without covering up. Now that is offensive...

HELLO! What do you think women HAVE breasts for?
They're NOT to have implants shoved into them, so that men can stare @ them. I really wonder how much longer our civilization can survive with the way people think.

What is wrong with that shop owner!!!! S/he should have taken that mannequin out of the window and back to a windowless room with a lock. It's only there that the clothing should have been removed. Hopefully the owner would have known to turn out the lights and blindfold his/herself just in case any light should enter the locked room and the owner might see plastic nudity.

Hopefully this shop owner has learned a valuable lesson. Kudos and thank yous to all the fine, upstanding citizens who caught this horrid lack of decency before it went any further.

They're not?
Isn't that akin to dressing like a skank then complaining when someone treats you like one?

I can't figure out if you're trying for sarcasm or if you're just confused; so I don't know how to answer your first question. I was replying to the person who was offended by women breast feeding in public. What does breast feeding in public have to do with dressing like a skank? Female mammals have breasts so that they can feed their off-spring, that's 5th or 6th grade Earth Science. Should dogs and cats cover-up or hide when they feed their babies?
As far as civilization goes; the more skewed from the natural we become, the more damage we do to the earth and the people around us, hence I was wondering if we are getting so far away from the natural that we're eventually going to cause the end of our civilization. That's all-just an off-topic answer to an off-topic statement.
I'm not sure how "the spineless here" hanging themselves fits into the ending of civilization? I guess it depends on who "the spineless" are. Are they alien creatures who are going to take over our planet? Yeh, then I could see how "the spineless" hanging themselves would help out society.

Yeah your sarcasm meter is broken pretty bad.
And 5th and 6th Earth Science had nothing to do with the role of breasts and mammalian offspring feeding methods. I guess in California they teach anatomy and the study of the Earth in the same course.

LOL, yeah you're right, I think I meant Biology. Sorry.
But, seriously, do you think that breast-feeding is being skanky? I'm not being sarcastic, I'm asking seriously,'cause I breastfed
my daughter, but I didn't feel like I was being a skank, I just thought I was doing what was healthiest for her. Maybe it really bothers some people? Personally, breast implants bother me more than someone breastfeeding. I find them distracting when I'm trying to talk to someone and all I can see are these size D breasts. LOL. Whatever. Sorry, I'm just goofing around, please don't take me too seriously.:)

Breast feeding doesnt bother me at all. I was raised by way of "mind your own [email protected] business, and you'll be fine".
The same goes with any body modification be it, tattoos, piercings, implants (breast or otherwise), gays/straights etc etc etc. Unless someone is affecting me I dont care and leave em alone. Anymore people are not raised this way, and instead are raised with "look what bobby is doing!!".

Well, that makes sense; thank you for your answer. I guess I need to stop goofing around so much on these forums. It's my ADHD, I always end-up getting off-topic. Thinking about that mannequin makes me think about all of the barbie dolls in toy boxes in various states of undress. I hope someone will take it upon themselves to make sure these barbies get properly clothed.:)
O.K. I'll go away now, I need to lay off the forums for awhile and do something constructive.

Well its time to say something about all this . First of all the guy who ownes the store that the mannequinn is a nut case. He has nothing good to say about our community. And he just doesn't get the picture of how to run a successful business. Get a hair cut,trim your beard,take a shower,take off the hat. It will be nice when he and his building full of guns has moved on. He adds nothing of value to our community..

I couldnt have said it any better. He went to and came back from western australia "they should have kept him". He is pretty much a piece of shit trying to sell junk and drags his daughter around with him "poor girl doesnt have a chance in hell".

It's time for a naked protest of some sort in Beatrice, 1000 naked people march through the center of town just to show them that the sky won't fall if we dare to bare.

They are bible thumpers, yet they would probably arrest Adam & Eve for indecency, despite the fact that God is the one who allowed them to run about bare.
