Nipple-less wrestlers

Triple H, John Cena, Floyd Mayweather and the rest of the dudes on this Wrestlemania poster have had their nipples removed.

Apparently, "They were photoshopped out because of a law in Florida that prohibits the display of nipples. Since men's nipples are not sexualized in the same way that women's are, the authors of the law were likely thinking of women's bodies as they penned this ban. Thus, it illustrates that it is women's bodies that we think of when we think of bodies on display because of the adoption (by men and women alike in this culture) of a (heteronormative) male gaze."
