Photos of children 'inappropriate' for display

The more than 100 photos are of unclothed women and girls shown as part of "Body Awareness/Body Appreciation Week," an annual event on the campus. A university spokesman claims the exhibit does not constitute pornography. But Kent Ostrander, who heads up the Family Foundation of Kentucky, disagrees.

"Our concern is primarily focusing on the fact that some of these photos are of young children -- two-and-a-half years old, eight years old, twelve years old -- and that's just inappropriate," he remarks. "A child [that age] has not reached the age of consent."

The photographer is quoted as saying he obtained permission from the parents. In response, Ostrander says that "any adult who would allow their child to be used that way, exploited that way, is a fool."
"universities should be pushing the envelope on education, not on sexuality."
