Ruined Snow Penis Stimulates Debate @ 01:20 am

Current Mood: listless listless
Current Music: Eno/Cale, Wrong Way Up, Empty Frame

Quoted from the Harvard Crimson:
But women’s groups on campus have led a chorus of complaints against the snow penis, arguing that such a display is demeaning to women.

“It was offensive because it was pornographic,” said Amy E. Keel ’04, who said she and her roommate “dismantled” the giant snow penis.

Article is here.

In other news: California taxes suck, and I'd like to beat whomever is responsible for the instructions with a clawhammer; also, my eyebrows are not behaving. Grr.

Hmmm, I wish I still had the picture of me standing next to the 5-foot tall snow penis I made, complete with pine needle-covered scrotum. I'd send it to her.

Hope those girls never go to a japanese shinto love shrine. They'd be offended left and right.

Yes. See, the gender schism might be healed, if only we can stamp out the scourge of snow boners.

Worse than just snow boners. The quote seems to imply that the existence/display of a penis is pornographic, and therefore offensive, regardless of context.

Ergo, half of the human race is offensive! Just like that!

Amazing.

Oh good, the other half of the species is offensive too. Now we can all stay in our respective houses and never interact with anyone again, and the PC police will finally be satisfied.

Feh.
