I'm all for political diversity, except in my neighborhood. So please, any misplaced red-staters asking for the removal of the above painting because it offends them need to get the hell out of the E.Vil. (from Curbed, which then quotes The Villager):

What better way to get going on a Friday morning than with a controversy over boobies? An argument over the display of the above painting in the window of an East Village gallery is easy fodder for those who decry the current state of the neighborhood as a yuppie playpen, but you'll be happy to know that there's at least one guy committed to keeping the East Village edgy:

In the week since the gallery’s curator put the painting in the window, several local residents have requested he remove it...

“What a bunch of nerds these kids are!” said Jesse Gee, the gallery’s curator, standing inside his store on a recent Friday afternoon.
