Before you mod this down, please read.
This is kind of an "pseudoartistic political statement".
A few days ago, some medicore artwork was uploaded to kde-look.org, labeled "new kde mascot", consisting of collages of Konqui, the KDE logo and an female asian fotomodel, who was clothed in some frottee-like bikini (e.g. as in "not nude")
This imagery sparked the complaints of alleged christian folks, who requested that artwork to be removed, and who told that "nude imagery" was offensive to their beliefes.
Remember: Lots of things can be offensive to other systems of belief - "danish carricatures" are only one example that occured not too long ago. Also remember that nude or erotic imagery is as old as mankind.
Ultimately, the "New KDE Mascot" artwork vanished mysteriously from KDE-look.org, without being modded down. This should be an outrage for a community that builds its existance on ideas of freedom and humanism.
This wallpaper should remind us to protect the freedoms we have, against everyone who wants to remove them because of "security concerns", "personal belief" or any other reasons. The burka woman represents what we would get if people with an even less open mind about females in pictures would want and get a removal of works depicting women on kde-look, the rusty gear stands for what would become of KDE-Look, KDE and OSS if basic freedom would be denied on a regular basis.
Freedom starts at home. Freedom starts here.
