my point on the hypo is that we all have our different perspectives
You did not know that diabetes hypos were military gear? Hi grade weapons ideal for spearing stabbing launching making blood squirt everywhere... lucky you VBG
School policy rather frowns on scenes involving bloodbaths or drug use. I work in a title one 'inner city' type school and drugs and violence are already very present. I have yet to see any of the medical gear or personnel used in any healing context. Be that as it may I appreciate its presence and availability...
I very much like the idea of various "stamp packs"
Ya know, it would be easy to spin off a TuxPaint for Collegiates or TuxPaint for Small Business pack on that basis Swap out a few stamps and brushes maybe a skin job (new color) and there you go. Its my favorite paint program by far because its all there up front. It doesn't have everything but what it has makes up for that so far as immediate art making goes.

The option to install, or not-install, various stamp collections
exists in the main source package. e.g., you can do:
$ sudo make install-all # everything
$ sudo make install-sports intall-animals # sports and animals only
It's also possible using the Stamps Installer on Windows.
(You use the checkboxes to decide which groups get installed or not.)
And finally, the RPM packages for the Stamps (for Red Hat, Fedora, etc.)
are broken up into separate packages for each group.
(However, Debian package for stamps is one big collection.)
I believe the Mac installer also installs all-or-none.
Adding some config options to Tux Paint Config (or creating an
alternate tool that manages which stamps are loaded, and which are
ignored) would be very useful. Esp. if the decisions themselves
can be managed. (e.g., ask Tux Paint to use the "Science Class"
collection vs. the "Art Class" collection, or what have you.)
I do admit I'm a little confused about the hypodermic needle being
troublesome... considering my son just went in for vaccinations
last week, it's something he's already familiar with, as a 2yo. :)

One could go as far as saying "animals WERE harmed in the creation of
Tux Paint", I suppose. But typically this content is being pulled
from elsewhere (e.g., Wikipedia), so we're a few steps away from
Considering most people around the world eat animals, and there are
armies all over the world, and doctors do use hypodermic needles to
draw blood or give you medicine, I try not to take sides.
GIVING END-USERS A CHOICE is very important to me, though, since,
obviously, some people DO have an issue with certain kinds of
content, and I fully understand the desire to prevent their children
from seeing some content.
Anyway, in the _meantime_, the stamps in Tux Paint are just
PNG and SVG files. Users are free to wipe them from their hard
drives as they see fit, and Tux Paint will not complain.
(Realize, though, that installing updates may reintroduce stamps
that you have removed.) And this has always been documented. :)
