Softcore Avatars

Ever since I started posting on CBS Sportsline, I've seen a lot of things. Some of which include:

- Fans with no idea of what they're talking about
- Obnoxious Red Sox, Yankkees, and Cowboys fans
- Pete Prisco Articles

Out of all the terrible things that I have seen, nothing frustrates and intrigues me more than the softcore pornography people show off as avatars.

Now, I will be the first to tell you that freedom of speech is one of the most important values that this country is founded on. Everyone has the right to choose whichever image they please as an avatar. What gets me is why use the softcore? Is there some hidden competition that I'm not aware of?

My underlying assumption is these avatars are predominately used by guys like myself - probably around the 15 to 23 age range.

Given that, are we so horny and sexually frustrated as a generation that we need pictures of scantily clad women wherever we go?

I mean, avatars are supposed to be an expression of things that we hold in high regard. Since this is a sports site, the natural assumption is a sports avatar. I guess that logic is too much.

Oh well - continue posting your sensually obscene pictures gentlemen. Lord knows they drive me crazy with...anger ;)
