    Kyle, thank you for calling out the authoritarian puritanical left. Even the atheists among them are basically Christian atheists. They haven't thought deeply enough to truly shed puritanical oppression from their culture. I don't care if there are naked statues of men or women. I actually don't care if there is nudity on television either. Sex is not damaging in itself and neither is nudity. It is only "degrading" if you have some issue with sexual purity. Sexual assault is a problem because it is forced and violent. It's not a problem because it involves sex. People are conflating sex and "impurity" with violence and/or harm.

    Well, I now know what some of the #MeToo Movement is about, thank you Kyle. I agree, sexual assault is horrible, but this is insane and disrespectful to women, men, nature, and art, especially to me because Puritanism is one of my personal "hot buttons".

    Noam Chomsky, a guy who also calls himself a "libertarian leftist/socialist" and someone you apparently admire, spoke out against Hustler and pornography in general some time ago. This puritanical sex-negative nonsense runs deep within the left but you'll just keep that head of yours lodged in the sand. Maybe you can go "lalalala" in the process. It's something the left needs to get rid off. That and Islamophilia.

    So, Christian fundamentalists are too extreme to handle nudity in art, but the president of an islamic theocracy shouldn't be pandered too because it's condensending to hide nude paintings from him. Why? Can he be reasoned with more than an imaginary Christian?

    Do you think he is more progressive than the imaginary Christian?
    Fuck. This. Stupid. Logic.

    Ah, the big difference between us and Europe: we fetishize violence while scared of our own sexuality.

    This should literally be the least controversial painting compared to the modern art bullshit where drawing Jesus with period blood is considered normal.

    Actually we should also tear off the pyramids as well. How else could #metoo and the new iconoclasts sleep well, if at that time smaller pyramids were built for the queens than for the kings?

    yeah but these Puritans are not even puratins. in private they're all on pornhub all day.

    The authoritarian left is destroying the left wing populist movement

  21. anvior45 4 months ago

    This is the regressive left, usually cooked up at universities and living in their own world: Listen to Camille Paglia and you realize who these people are. In their twisted world view, any unwelcome attention, including flirting with a woman is sexual assault.

    "Metoo" has always been about baseless accusations – so there's nothing to debase by lumping sexual puritanism into this farce…

  23. PETE ALLISON 4 months ago

    Me too movement: Puritanism or is it a subtle rise of Fascism. I want it replaced for the: "Other You Movement" and i would suggest the majority of people would like it replaced. REPLACE IT NOW. I would suggest there is something a little wrong if you know what i mean with the "Me too Movement" members. More research is required.

    So they removed the only reason to actually waste time at a shitty gallery?

    I had to look up the statue of Neptune to see what the big deal was and I was left wondering how Facebook is defining "sexually explicit". I will agree that Neptune was naked, but it seemed to be a pose of confidence and a context of power. If simply being naked is "sexually explicit" or erotic then any artistic or historical pictures of African American slaves or people in concentration camps involving them being stripped naked is sexually explicit or erotic. In which case sexually explicit has lost all meaning.

    As for the painting(s) being taken down, it sounds completely stupid but if the gallery doesn't want to hang it then they don't have to hang it. If they were being told it is oppressive to women and needs to be taken down in light of the me too movement, that is going too far for me as is them pushing the idea. However, this gallery seems to be without an opinion. If they don't care whether it is displayed or not and no one was complaining then why take it down?

    Actually, what bugs me about the painting is that all the women look like identical siblings . . . apparently the painter had only a single vision of women.
