What is it with AI and boobs? I’m sure I’m not the only person to have experienced the highly sexualized content these text-to-image generators seem to spit out. From Midjourney to Lensa and now Photo AI, even when asking these machines to create innocent images, boobs somehow seem to enter the mainframe. 

Perhaps I shouldn’t be too quick to jump to conclusions, but could it have anything to do with the fact that it’s men dominate the tech industry and are mostly the ones behind AI photo generators? When we get down to the nitty-gritty of how AI neural engines are trained, it still confuses the hell out of me.
