I painted this in a state of great amusement after reading a 1979 school board decision to ban Ms. magazine from a school library. From the opinion: "[The school board member's] objection to the periodical focused largely on the fact that it contained advertisements for 'vibrators', contraceptives, materials dealing with lesbianism and witchcraft, and gay material. He also objected to advertisements for what he described as a pro-communist newspaper ("The Guardian") and advertisements suggesting trips to Cuba. In addition he felt that the magazine encouraged students and teachers to send away for records made by known communist folk singers."
