Another brouhaha over a sign. This time, it's Tulip, an adult toy store on Northalsted in Boystown, whose window display featured the word "masturbate" and an anatomically correct male nude. A 7-year-old read the word, and her mom got upset and complained. The nude is now gone, but the masturbate sign stays ...for now.
