Isn’t this Artist Demeaning Women Who Have a Prostate Instead of Ovaries?


Abortion Activists Put Up Giant, Glowing Uterus Sign in Downtown Hollywood.

Whatever happened to “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world?”

 The cradle in a woman’s body, designed to nurture the world’s future leaders for nine months, is artistically depicted on a sign in West Hollywood, LA Magazine reports. The artwork, a neon sculpture of a uterus with fiberglass boxing gloves substituted for ovaries, was unveiled on Feb. 27 and will be lit for a year.

But the artist, Zoë Buckman, isn’t interested in ruling the world. Instead, she settles for the idea of ruling her own body.

Buckman said she was inspired to create the artwork, titled “Champ,” by the United States 2016 presidential election.

“I’m a Brit, so I come from a country where in the run-up to a general election, no one talks about abortion,” Buckman said. “No one starts scoring levels of rape. No one talks about curtailing a woman’s right to choice or sexual health—it’s just not a discussion. But yet, it is here, and I take it personally. This was starting up again, and so I realized I was just feeling that politically, as women, we were under threat, and that there was—and is—a war on us. There was a lot to fight for, and a lot that needed defending.”

Lessons from her boxing training also found their way into her artwork.


h/t sure to be a knockout

  1. Yes but as artwork goes, the sperm on Obama’s Smithsonian portrait face just seemed to speak to me more.

  2. This tired and boring sophomoric drivel is what passes for edgy artistic expression these days. A woman in the United States that enjoys one of the highest standards of living in the world spending her time carping about the inhuman oppression she suffers as a female. That tells you all you need to know about how hopelessly clueless this twit is.
