Every conceivable medium, including art and pornography, has been drawn into figuring out where art ends and pornography begins. Now a lowly rear window in Montana has become the battleground for this contentious debate.

Shanna Weaver of Great Falls has a sticker on the rear window of her SUV that depicts a woman's silhouette above the word "SKIN." You can see it above in pixelized form or click here to view the graphic as it would appear on Weaver's rear window. Great Falls resident Brian Smith, meanwhile, parks across the street from Weaver's SUV and says he should not be forced to endure what he considers to be a sacrilegious display of the human body.

The logo itself appears to be from Skin Industries, an organization that dubs itself a "Sports Fashion" company. The sticker is akin to the famous mudflap girl silhouette that's often seen on big-rigs – it contains no shadowing but is more detailed than the famous mudflap girl.

Weaver and Smith have discussed it, with Weaver taking the opinion that her First Amendment rights condone the sticker, whereas Smith feels it's obscenity. Smith took his complaint to the police, but the officer sent to investigate the dispute decided the sticker wasn't obscene. So, for now at least, the sticker remains in plain sight.

      Beats looking at those stickers that tell me how many kids and dogs you have. Like I give a crap.

      He is offended from viewing it across the street? Must have eagle vision. From across the street it should look like the letter M on top of the word skin. It is nothing more than a figure of a woman's figure. You gotta be within a foot to see her nipples at that size. I'm sure on a cold day in Montana, half the women have protruding nipples visible through their shirts

      A silhouette of a naked woman showing nothing is bad, but the little boy pissing on things, such as the president, is OK

      So a woman has this on her car and a guy complains? Wow. I mean, a woman can wear clothing that wraps around her curves, but a sticker of an obscure woman is offensive? Somebody get this guy some gonads.

        Guys like that, and women are like that are anti-woman. They are thin-lipped, fat, middle-class Americans, with SUVs, TV's tuned to Fox News (or MSNBC if you're a mindless liberal on opposite side of retard spectrum), and they are utterly incapable of critical thinking.

      If they want to stop anything they should stop the truck nuts and not this decal.
