I think it was meant to be funny ha ha, and it just isn't.

Lots of drama and over reaction here.

That said, if it were my daughter being depicted on the backglass with the monkey, I wouldn't be happy about it.

Of course sex sells, so nothing wrong with that if it's done in the right way.

Quoted from Zablon:

I really was done on this topic, but let me ask you it this way:
If 1 person is offended by something, then should it be banned/removed?
Is 1 persons opinion greater than everyone else's?
If not 1 person, what is the magic #?
If it isn't the majority, then should everyone be expected to cater to the more vocal minority when they have no actual stake in it?
Unfortunately, this subject is too nuanced to solve over a web forum, and in no way am I trying to offend or belittle anyone's experiences or feelings. I do feel the person has some responsibility in cases such as these. You can choose not to buy the product. Plain and simple. A monkey on a backglass is not going to cause sexual assualt any more than a car causes people to road rage, etc. Bad people are going to do bad things, with or without. The mentality that you are going to stop bad things because you stamp out ideas (movies, music, art, games, tools) is fruitless. The idea that everyone should be without so you don't feel uncomfortable is selfish. You might say it's selfish to think that way, but again, I refer to the above questions. There has to be a limit, or it is just a constant downward spiral.
For one, I don't think black lesbian females are represented enough on this machine and it offends me. Discuss.

I think if you did a survey of a 1000 people, split male/female, pretty likely you would get a majority that the monkey just isn't funny and is offensive to some people.

Someone do a survey!
