Adverts for Thinx, a brand of pants designed to absorb menstrual blood, have been deemed too racy from the New York City subway.

Outfront Media, the company that advises the New York city subway on advertising, took issue with the suggestive nature of their imagery and the use of the word "period."

Are the ads more offensive than other images that have appeared on the subway, or is this a case of sexism? A debate has been raging online.
