Well, it is just a naked baby. I don't think it's quite defined as child porn. Like, I'm pretty sure I've seen naked kids in baths and sh** before, so maybe stuff like that isn't considered child porn since it is just a kid in a pool. Idk man

Seriously? It's a baby in a pool... it's not something dragged out of the darknet.

Do you see paedos everywhere you go? Look, there's one over there in the bushes :shock:

Because the law automatically assumes that people are 'OK' unless sufficient evidence comes forward.

A baby being filmed for an album by a major record company, being distributed in mainstream stores. A photoshoot that was probably on record at the time as being attended by trusted professionals, and probably the parents of the child themselves.

However, it could very much be said that it is a form of abuse to display your naked child to strangers for money.

So, on that basis, I don't like the use of a naked child for that album cover.

It is not up to others to say that it is allowed because it's a metaphor. The final line is that the baby cannot consent to their naked form being seen by many strangers. So their naked image should NOT be used.

Nudity does not make something porn.
Would you think a Johnsons baby oil/no more tears shampoo or pampers commercial is porn?

There's nothing sexual about it.

The band's biographer said label wanted to use a different image. Kurt only agreed to on one condition: a strategically placed sticker that would read: “If you’re offended by this, you must be a closet pedophile.” The original album art went out untouched.

There's a nice story for mum!

Sorry but I've been a Nirvana fan for years and I had to get in on the action

Nudity doesn't necessarily mean porn. It's not even that bad either. It's not at all sexual.
