Comment to BoingBoing post

Magazines and books have been censored in the same manner in Saudi Arabia for years. It’s not a matter of censoring “Western” magazines so much as censorship of what their culture deems inappropriate exposure on a woman, or imagery of religions other than Islam. I know this having lived in an American community in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where our American teachers took the liberty to censor girls’ arms and legs in our yearbooks to avoid customs blocking out the entire person with the black Sharpie or white stickers.
