    I felt a poll was necessary.

    (No, the avatar is NOT me. It is a joke.)

    I find it annoying but I'm a heterosexual woman who doesn't care to see that. I am in the minority on these boards, however.

    The board allows us to ignore specific users but I prefer not to do that. Often those with the tackiest avatars have the most to contribute about the Treo 600 (my purpose for visiting this board).

    (How would hetero men feel if they were faced with an avatar of large male genitals?)

    I see no genitals. In fact I see no skin at all. You could turn on network TV and see the same thing. If the boobs were small would it be such a big deal? It's a picture of a portion of a clothed woman, who cares? I'm sure if there were more women on the board you would see male pictures. Who really cares, please lighten up people.

    So it is 5 to 4 so far in favor of keeping it.

    Sorta like the poll numbers in this Presidential campaign.

    There is an option in the profile section to turn off the display of avatars

    Err no, that is true.

    I am comparing this avatar with one of a very endowed male. I doubt the men would appreciate it. I do have a nice photo of Vin Diesel which I don't think would be appropriate to post here.

    No problem either way for me because I know how to ignore. I only responded because the OP requested opinions.

    Carry on. Whatever floats your boat.

    You girls are cracing me up.

    I say show what you like it makes no difference. It's your body after all and what you do with it or how much you want to display of it is your affair.

    By the way. I'm a t-ts and a-s man.

    Since it is not your real picture, I consider this 'fuss' a mute point. Both Chick and clairegrrl posted their real photos to much of my (and others; check Aflac thread) enjoyment.

    well I think we should ban any avatars that are at all reflective of the human body, right along with the OT section. NOT. Lighten up people. Whats next my avatars because of caliber envy?

    EuroKitty, I suppose one day someone will do a research/study on avatar psychology and it will be a great read! No doubt avatars have subconscious effect on people. I would entertain the idea that because there are more male posters on TC, avatars such as yours will draw more attention regardless of the subject-matter. At least that would be the initial process. Having said that, I think that if people want to have "sexy" avatars, or "goofy" or "silly" or whatever-avatars: Then more power to them.
