I liked Facebooks' careful definition of what constitutes nudity.
Though their new policy would allow for diagrams of genitals for
medical education, it would be tough for Commons to adopt similar
anti-nudity laws without deleting a lot of historical and culturally
relevant photographs, plus all the 19th century oil paintings where
every other famous work seems to have a bare-chested woman in it. Oh
and of course, all those naughty shots of Roman antiquities with their
depictions of satyrs and gymnasts with their prominent buttocks and
junk hanging out.

It's a bit sad that a policy like this would not stop all those
damn-awful amateur shots of girls in bikinis on a beach holiday being
uploaded every year.

Yeah, let's park this idea.
