There is a thing called freedom of speech.

But do you want a stripper peering down at you longingly, right in your own neighborhood? OK, don't answer that guys. If you're a mother, would you want said exotic dancer giving your 11-year-old boy a come-hither look from a billboard right near the local 7-Eleven?

We thought not! This is what counts for big-time political intrigue in L.A., people. Strip-club billboards:

Ursula Pyland is just such a mother. And the West Hills resident apparently is tired of her boy having to look at hot strippers on his trips to the convenience store and Taco Bell.

She's started an online petition (we couldn't find it ... online) that seeks to ban strip-club billboards -- tobacco-style -- statewide and even across America.

She's gotten more headlines than a celebrity with moving violations, including this piece in the L.A. Daily News.

The thorn in her side is comprised of as many as 50 billboards for the Xposed club in Canoga Park, which has seen some of its ads challenged in Bel-Air, Venice and West L.A.

The club's owner has defended the media, noting that they're no more lascivious than other billboards we see around town (which is sort of true -- the Xposed ads feature only faces).

In any case, good luck with that, Pyland: L.A. banned billboards, and then they mushroomed. (The same could be said for marijuana dispensaries).

Your movement could be a blessing to strip-club advertising everywhere.

Xposed, by the way, has the awesomest strip-club entrepreneurship on display this side of Vegas: You can't have a fully nude establishment and serve alcohol in California. So what do they do over at Xposed? They put the strip club next to the bar!

There's a free ad for you, Xposed. Now leave the kiddies alone. They'll find out soon enough.
