I personally think that people are getting too sensitive about this. 
Reading these emails, I thought the pictures were going to be a lot
worse than they actually are.  I would have no problems using these
pictures in any setting (even work if needed) as they aren't sexual in
the least.  But then again, that's just my opinion.
