Have we become so politically corrrect that a photo of a topless girl causes such reactions?

The Mail reports that there is "Uproar at Cambridge University as student magazine puts topless blonde on page three", it seems that:
"A Cambridge undergraduate has caused uproar by becoming the first to pose topless in a student magazine.

The pretty blonde is pictured wearing a black, lacy thong with hold-up stockings as she poses on one of the city's historic bridges with a cigarette in her hand.

The woman, who is understood to be a third year student at Homerton College, appears in Vivid, which has a circulation of more than 5,000.

Although its editors claim the magazine's focus is on political and satirical articles, it has become known among students for its series of 'page 3' girls. "
Let's get this straight, a (presumably) 20 year old girl has posed topless for a magazine and that has created a furore?

"Students yesterday said they were shocked at the risque image. One King's College undergraduate, who asked not to be named, said: 'I can't believe she agreed to pose for the magazine.

'Everyone has been talking about it. I'm sure she must regret it now.'

A Clare College student added: 'Lots of students and professors have seen this. It's a risky thing to do when you are studying at one of the top universities in the country.' "
I wonder how many students were "shocked", I wonder how many students either couldn't care less or liked the image, I wonder how many who were "shocked" were studying womens studies and are permanently "shocked".
