45 tall nude [woman] statue coming to the national mall

You can’t make this stuff up. Relevant tidbits.

If you walk along the National Mall this November, you’ll see the Smithsonian Museums, the Washington Monument, Capitol Hill, and, possibly, something else: a 45-foot tall nude sculpture of a woman.

The Amazonian figure would tower over the National Mall next to the Washington Monument, directly facing the White House until March 7 to promote women’s equality.

Organizers are trying to raise funds to transport the R-Evolution sculpture from San Francisco to Washington. They’ve gotten conditional approval from the National Park Service to have the structure on the grounds of the National Mall.
[…]
The sculpture was created by artist Marco Cochrane as part of The Bliss Project. He said the sculpture was meant to combat a culture that increasingly dehumanizes women and sexualizes the female form.

R-Evolution is just one of three giant nude female sculptures Cochrane created with his model and collaborator Deja Solis.

He said the series spawned from an idea of feminine safety that he says he’s been wrestling with since the age of seven, when he learned that a friend had been sexually assaulted.

“These sculptures are about expressing what it would be like if women were safe,” Cochrane said. “To me this sculpture answers that question . . . She’s absolutely fearless and accepting and being able to do that is a really powerful thing.”

Julia Whitelaw, Cochrane’s creative partner, said his early sculptures were often so life-like that people felt uncomfortable looking at them, until he scaled them up — way up.

“There was such this taboo that was happening,” she said. “Men would walk in, look at the sculpture, and they would have to avert their eyes.”

Cochrane was inspired to take his art to new heights by the burning effigies at Burning Man. Instead of working in bronze or clay, he created massive sculptures out of steel rods, tubing, mesh and LED lights.

“It made it okay to look at them,” Whitelaw said. “People feel emotionally connected to these sculptures, they don’t focus on the physical.”
[…]
The four-month long vigil is also intended to raise awareness of the Equal Rights Amendment. The constitutional amendment, proposed in 1972, would outlaw discrimination based on sex, but it has yet to be ratified.

The sculptures will inevitably produce some controversy wherever they go, but Whitelaw said she’s confident that there are plenty of people excited to have art “supporting the end of violence against women and equal rights for women right there in the heart of the nation.”

Not even really sure what to say about this.

You would think that putting a nude figure out there is actually the epitome of dehumanization and sexualization of the female form… but apparently not.

The ideal that women are not considered already ‘equal’ in the US is laughable. They do ‘better’ at education with higher grades and graduation rates in high school, college, and graduate programs. They are paid the same. Women have the opportunity to do any job they want. They can choose to blow up marriages, have children, and do what they want with less consequences than men.

Now they’re basically putting pornography on the national mall to “promote equality.” Right on.

    The gulf in double standards is so wide that I am having trouble believing it.

    and … satan is cracking up that there are people who are believing this stuff.

    sick.

    Triggered! The woman is neither black, fat, old, transgendered, nor old! Ho can the National Park Service allow such violence against women, and the women identifying?

    Ever notice how male and female pervs promoting female sexual immorality couch in it ‘progress, equality, or social justice’. They virtue signal so that people don’t rightly call them ‘pervs’.

    “supporting the end of violence against women and equal rights for women right there in the heart of the nation.”

    At this point equal rights for women is beginning to sound like a retrograde move. Maybe that’s the plan. They will have so many more rights than men, that men will appreciate a reduction to “equal”. Should we be supporting the end of violence against men also? Never mind.

    *puts on helmet*

  7. Yup, and it just makes the Washington Monument into more of a phallic symbol.

    The problem, now, is these people are both evil and extremely stupid, yet because of modern communications, we get to see all of it.

    “He said the sculpture was meant to combat a culture that increasingly dehumanizes women and sexualizes the female form.”

    And his solution to this is to sculpt a naked woman? That would be like, I dunno, a group of women who express the desire to not be objectified by their genitals by wearing vagina hats or something. Oh wait…

  9. @ Chris

    There’s also the half naked marchers baring their breasts, vagina monologues, and so on.

    It’s pretty baffling. It’s the women who adhere to modesty who are not “objectified.”

    whats the difference between this statue and those greek/roman statue with both men and women are naked?

    To this point we don’t think the Greeks/Romans made them as a means to promote ‘equality’.

    However those empires were pretty sexually immoral as well so perhaps it is also a reflection of what their society found important.

    thanks

    S.Y.,
    There is a huge difference in our cultures. To get to Japan from San Francisco culturally start walking east along Interstate 80 until you reach New York. Take ship to Portugal and again walk across the breadth of Europe and Asia.
    Also, the Ancient Greeks were very much different culturally from the present. To begin with, they weren’t Christian.

    SY,
    The thought did occur to me that you could profit from reading James Michener’s The Source. It is a novel and it does read easy.

    @fuzziewuzziebear,

    “The thought did occur to me that you could profit from reading James Michener’s The Source.”

    Yuck, barf bag, that novel is awful and full of caricatures. I recommend no one waste there time reading it.
