The Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint against complaint with the FCC about America's Next Top Model and the show's March 26 episode, in which contestant Anya modeled nude for Nigel Barker (as her reward for winning a challenge). The image to the left is a still taken from the episode and it's about as racy as the imagery got. Any other nudity was completely blurred out. However, PTC president Tim Winter said the show was "irresponsible" and "crossed the legal threshold for broadcast indecency." Whatevs. [TV Guide]
@Zlevee: That's a great documentary! I'm a doc buff, and rented it a few years ago, and then hatched a (very stoned) plan to fly to California and find a way to infiltrate the ratings panel and totally fuck up the system. Obviously, that plan never came to fruition.
It's not all homosexual discrimination — they were talking also about a scene in a movie I forget where they couldn't show a girl getting eaten out (or even imply it strongly) because vaginas are scary for men, or something. What it comes down to is the people who decide the ratings for movies do so with total anonymity, no accountability, no required justification, and completely arbitrarily.
Erm, that was a really long way of saying that I recommend that documentary as well!
