Is this real? So we can't have barechested ladies on TV but we can have naked statues in downtown where children can see it?
I smell something wrong about this. I can't go downtown naked, but a statue can? And it can be whatever it wants? It's adult-oriented. My immediate
reaction seeing that downtown would be to send a letter to the local officials or the state department. I've NEVER seen a statue of that sort in a
public place and don't want to. I've seen naked statues and naked people in art rooms or galleries, but not in the open and still with taste and
This is ackin to Trump's behavior during his campaign. It's obscene, obnoxious and hateful. In a lot of ways, this statue is too--if true. Another
example that decency in this country is losing traction.
Our society hangs by a thread on the trust we have for each other and our modesty. Throw that away and it'll be just like the cesspool in uncontrolled
chat or fourm. Barbarism, executions, obscenity, rape and other things are fair game. It's strange to me people can't always see this when it's cast
differently from the usual. They think freedom is free just because it's called FREEdom. But freedom isn't free. We have codes of conduct and a
justice system to ENABLE freedom. It's not without its rules.
This isn't about free speech. It's about civility.
EDIT: If the posters in this thread who think this statue is ok in a public place where children can see it then I have to ask, how would you feel if
a statue of a porn star was in its place? Would you be ok with that? What if it showed her privates? Ok still? YOu should be because you're ok with
this statue. Lets lose the false pretense. Lets go ALL THE WAY. Nothing should be offlimits. Lets put these statues in schools. May as well put them
in preschools too. The kids will like it. Because it's FREE SPEECH!!!!!!!
Here's an idea for a statue. Lets put it at the gradeschool at the entrnace. JESUS AND THE POOR MAN. Jesus is wearing his robes and has the usuall
things like the thorns and the halo above his head. He's sweaty with exertion. He's giving a realistic BJ to another guy, a poor guy, to lead him.
It's a symbol of salvation in the holy spirit, the son and the father. I don't see anything wrong with it. FREE SPEECH!!!! A better world it'll be. A
