No offense was taken... I understood what you were saying.
I did have another piece of "art" in mind thgough, I think
it was called "Piss Christ" by the author, though I am not
certain. I saw it or at least I remember seeing it, at or
around the time I saw a Mapplethorpe show several years

Just to repeat, There was nothing in your post to find
offensive, IMHO. I was just saying if you DID use
such a paper, (and people found out about it) some would,
rightly or wrongly, conclude it was derogatory.
