A man humping the statue of a little girl has gone viral for all the right reasons. Before we go all feminist on him, let’s turn the tables.
Picture a businesswoman leaving her job and coming across a statue of a young boy. She’s just worked a long, hard day on Wall Street and is probably on her way to get a few drinks with her friends. They pass a statue of a giant dove, which represents femininity and what ultimately powers Wall Street.
A new statue has been erected near the dove. It’s of a young boy staring defiantly into the bird’s face and was put there after a recent presidential election. The new president is a woman who supports the oppression of men.
What few men have successfully infiltrated the business world have often been met with harassment and given lower salaries, simply because of their gender. Seeing a woman who supports that behavior become president made them say, “Enough!”
This businesswoman sees about 20-30 people surrounding the statue of the boy. Having no respect for the situation, she proceeds to hump the statue.
Do you think for one minute that men in our society would accept that behavior?
Of course not, because we live in a patriarchy. That means men can act like ‘men’ while women are held to higher standards.
A statue of a young girl was recently erected and placed across from the Bull on Wall Street. It was designed by Kristen Visbal and was erected the day before International Women’s Day last Tuesday.
It was a bold statement to both the current president and the outpouring of misogynists who are happy to have a leader who supports the oppression of women.
Here’s a picture of the man humping the statue.
The woman who snapped the picture, Alexis Kaloyanides, said:
“almost as if out of central casting, some wall street finance broseph appeared and started humping the statue while his gross date rape-y friends laughed and cheered him on. he pretended to have sex with the image of a little girl. douchebags like this are why we need feminism.”
Real men don’t hump statues of little girls because they don’t feel threatened by the uprising of women.
So please share the hell out of this image. We weren’t surprised when misogynists didn’t respond well to us fighting back, but we never thought we’d see a businessman proudly simulate the rape of a young girl.
