you said you were posting an image that you knew would cause controversy in the apug community
now, a few years later, most of the people who were outraged are gone, including the people who were in the chatroom with us
on that night. you also suggested another time that someone purposefully post "controversial" ( i put it in quotes because it was a male nude
like yours, and not really that controversial ) images in the gallery so he would gain a following and be held in esteem.
i am not saying your work is anything different than a male nude, i don't think it is pornographic.
you told us in the chatroom just before you posted it, you wanted to cause controversy within the community, and it did, just as you predicted ... as i said, different intent.
