...and, many new homes and condos have been built there. New sidewalks were i live. So while you enjoy this change of 'environment', Lo and Behold, you are forced to look at a lady showing her vigina with pubic hair while driving by....... while explaining to your teenage son, that having sex too soon can cause many problems......and he will know that this kind of display is tolerated by the community and by the City of Atlanta. Remind of Woodstock...all is flowery and lovely...not. Come on, no one is a prude here. This is just wrong. Over and out.

Your teenage son already knows the consequences of sex... But that subject has absolutely nothing to do with this artwork. Nothing. At. All. Every single one of us was born with genetalia.. I find nothing obscene with depicting nudity in a non sexual way.... And yes, this is non sexual depiction of the han form. It's nothing to be prudish about.

Far from "pornographic", but its within eyeshot of a mosque. In very poor taste. Plus the artist did a bait-and-switch from what was plan. She got her attention-whoring...now just get rid of it already.
