This happened to a friend of mine for the exact same reason. She had to get a new photograph taken.
2006-08-14 04:38:25 PM  
Fark their delicate sensibilities.
2006-08-14 04:41:33 PM  
fark that.
2006-08-14 04:48:32 PM  
Yet it's ok to have "piss christ" and Madonna running around with a crown of thorns on her head.

2006-08-14 04:51:32 PM  
wait, hold on here... we're missing the point. A five-year old going to the south of France ?! Eat me! Keep that little asshole in school.

Cover her up too! Go all the way with it.
2006-08-14 05:01:59 PM  
It's at time like this that I say "fark the Muslims".

I'm offended by burqas. Make sure you Muslims remove them before getting your pictures taken.
2006-08-14 05:20:16 PM  
Or it may end up in the spank bank for your friendly neighborhood pedo.
2006-08-14 05:54:41 PM  
What a world of pussies we've become
2006-08-14 06:00:55 PM  
submitter: rejected 'as it may offend'

Might offend whom?
2006-08-14 06:08:23 PM  
Hah! That's what the nekkid little tart gets for ululating in her passport photo.
2006-08-14 06:11:54 PM  
I was nekked from the waste down in my passport photo. Nobody kicked up a stink about that.
2006-08-14 06:41:56 PM  
Holy shiat, that girl's eyes are going to be in my nighmares for years.
2006-08-14 06:51:00 PM  
the person who rejected this is insane and should be sterilized with extreme prejudice

maybe with a baseball bat

NO ONE with a cute kid like this
who was willing to expose her in a photo like that
would EVER go to a backwards-farked in the headshiat for brains-muslim country

so where is the problem /???

fark PEOPLE and their ASSHAT repressive beliefs

/beat-a-fundie-to-death day
/we need a new holiday

Haha, cutest passport photo evar! She's just short of an anime character with those eyes.

[image from too old to be available]
2006-08-14 07:22:16 PM  
Yeah, um, don't GIS for "anime girl" without safesearch turned on.

/had no idea it would be THAT bad
2006-08-14 08:02:51 PM  
Geez. People suck.
2006-08-14 08:35:55 PM  
That kid looks like it hatched from a pod or something.
2006-08-14 08:35:55 PM  
So Muslims find the sight of a pre-pubescent girl's shoulders so erotic that they might not be able to control themselves and might just have to bomb something if they see this photo??

WTF kind of ignorant shiat is that??!
2006-08-14 08:37:39 PM  
Fark those buttholes.
2006-08-14 08:37:43 PM  
Who would this offend, Gary Glitter or Michael Jackson ?
2006-08-14 08:38:00 PM  
I LOL'd.

/there are people that actually want to get back IN to a Muslim country?
2006-08-14 08:38:02 PM  
Yeah well i'm offended by the State of Florida allowing Muslim women to get their driver's license photographs taken with their head-rags on.

/or whatever you call them
//durka durka
2006-08-14 08:38:56 PM  
I want read just one farking article about Muslims that doesn't make me want to ram my head into a wall. Can you do that for me Liberal Media??
2006-08-14 08:39:17 PM  

2006-08-14 08:39:20 PM  

Haha seriously the most adorable picture I've ever seen. She's so darn CUTE!!

/no creepiness intended, she's just precious
//i'm not gay either, but i can't help calling her precious
2006-08-14 08:39:54 PM  
WTF is wrong with people these days? Seriously? Have we all gone insane? I think so, yes, verily I do.
2006-08-14 08:40:07 PM  
As any true American knows, any time someone publishes or even is merely in possession of any form of offensive material, it's important to make a big deal about how offensive it is (or could be) and to ensure that the person responsible for publishing/possessing the offensive material understands that their rights take a second place to common sensibilities.

//Never mind, don't want to offend.
2006-08-14 08:40:17 PM  
So why are buttocks offensive, anyway? I mean we've all got them, and we all know they're there. What makes them more offensive than, say, the feet?
/thread, meet jack
2006-08-14 08:40:40 PM  
why don't they take off those head-wraps when they drive? Who do you think you are, batman?
2006-08-14 08:40:48 PM  
The way things are going, people will not be permitted on airplanes, ships, and trains because they may be carrying items that might be explosive.
That would make passports unnecessary and the government agencies that make and monitor usage redundant.
2006-08-14 08:40:50 PM  
My 7yo's PP photo has her in a sundress sporting her lovely Italian skin which is tanned. What makes some assbag think that we're going to some Muslim country for vacation? If I decide to go I'll get one with her in a black smock or something, but until

I sort of didn't care until now, but it's about damn time those who are easily offended bite my sweaty nutsack.
2006-08-14 08:41:28 PM  
Cute girl.

2006-08-14 08:41:33 PM  

Yet it's ok to have "piss christ" and Madonna running around with a crown of thorns on her head.

I think both Christ and Madonna use a different photo on their passports. Not that either of them have anything even remotely to do with any of this.
2006-08-14 08:41:56 PM  
Yet it's ok to have "piss christ" and Madonna running around with a crown of thorns on her head.

One of these things
is not like others.
One of these things
Does not belong.

Well, two of these things are First Ammendment issues and one is not. Can you figure out which isn't?

The Terrorists are winning.

i'm just waiting for "i'd hit it" and a photoshop contest with lots of NSFW
2006-08-14 08:48:36 PM  
a family trip to the south of France

Oh, they don't wear pants
In the southern part of France,
But they cover their bosoms
So they don't offend the Muslims.

/yea, that doesn't rhyme. so what?
2006-08-14 08:48:53 PM  
Have there been any cases of this problem occurring (i.e., someone being given a difficult time in a Muslim country because his or her passport photo showed too much skin)?

This sounds like a case of the British government being misinformed to the point of doing something stupid and offensive (offensive to everyone involved- the people who have to live by this dumb rule and the people the government is implying are so intolerant).
2006-08-14 08:48:54 PM  
People don't get a job at the passport office because they're brilliant.
2006-08-14 08:50:17 PM  
Let's try again...

Whateva, I do what I want!
2006-08-14 08:50:40 PM  
Considering that the Muslim world went absolutely ape-crap over a cartoon ... well, there's no telling what they'll do.

Also, what person in their right mind would go visit a Muslim country at this point in time?
2006-08-14 08:51:06 PM  
It might offend MUSLIMS? fark the Muslims! Muslims piss me off on a daily basis and you dont hear me pissing and moaning about it. Muslims need to shut the fark up and get with the times.
2006-08-14 08:51:12 PM  
What farking pussies. Political correctness gone insane.

Of course nobody cares if we piss off ANY other religious group. But we're completely terrified of Muslims now because we think some asstard is going to be see a little girl's shoulders and go blow up a cruise ship. The terrorists have definately won. Hands down.

If this was a visa to enter a muslim country, maybe. But a passport when the family only wants to go to France?

Multiculturalism has turned everybody into stark raving mad pussies. In the Uk anyway...
2006-08-14 08:51:37 PM  

The first person to say "I'd hit it" will be killed in such a way as to involve being eaten by several animals alive.
2006-08-14 08:51:59 PM  
Quite honestly, this sounds more like racism on the part of the people working in the passport office then anything else.
2006-08-14 08:52:01 PM  
Heeheeheee, I live in a highly arab area. We had "The Birth of Venus" banninated for awhile in case it offended "some of the parents." -ie , the muslim parents. By the Burning Eyes of Allah, the English department nearly shat itself. There were Venus pins EVERYWHERE. There was a petition, too, organized by this one boy in Honors club. 90% of the people who signed it were too stupid to understand what was going on, so the boy would say,

"Just sign it if you like boobs, okay?"

Venus came home right quick.

/what rhymes with Venus?!
//I hate Islam
2006-08-14 08:52:35 PM  
moltov Yeah well i'm offended by the State of Florida allowing Muslim women to get their driver's license photographs taken with their head-rags on.

you mean to tell me that florida allows women to get driver's licenses?
