Editor's Note: The Alestle is standing by our use of Lorde's "Solar Power" cover because it is artistic nudity. It is an image of Lorde just existing as a nude woman and not for the purpose of objectification. It is actually more oppressive to say a woman expressing her body artistically is disrespectful to women.

Is this what the Alestle deems as appropriate to email out to the SIUE community? This article could have easily been sent out without the entire photo. This is disgusting and a disgrace, not to mention totally insulting to women.
