Oy.

Join 100 Women Posing Naked at the Republican National Convention

The photograph will involve 100 nude women holding large mirror discs, reflecting the knowledge and wisdom of progressive women and the concept of “Mother Nature” into and onto the convention center, cityscape and horizon of Cleveland. The philosophy of the artwork relates to the idea of the sacred feminine. By holding mirrors, we hope to suggest that women are a reflection and embodiment of nature, the sun, the sky and the land. We want to express the belief that we will rely upon the strength, intuition and wisdom of progressive and enlightened women to find our place in nature and to regain the balance within it. The mirrors communicate that we are a reflection of ourselves, each other, and of the world that surrounds us. The woman becomes the future and the future becomes the woman.

Blah, blah, blah. Basically, this goober is comparing women to mirrors: you know, flat, featureless objects that are incapable of creation, can only reflect what they happen to be facing, with neither intellect nor volition. Hmmm. You know, that might actually be an accurate metaphor for the sort of progressive who would sign up for this sort of gag, thinking she’s doing something “important.”

    Sounds like something hippy with too much liberal propaganda fed to him, would come up with.

    Also, how does being naked matter? Most people don’t get modern art and I doubt most wouldn’t get the what hes trying to convey without someone else explaining the artist intent. If you have to explain it, your point is mute as far as I’m concern.

      It probably has to do with how women shouldn’t be ashamed of their bodies, with the more subtle message that Republicans supposedly are afraid of feminine power generally and women’s bodies in particular.

        > Republicans supposedly are afraid of feminine power generally and women’s bodies in particular.

        I keep hearing/reading that. But I also keep hearing/reading nothing to back up that claim.

          Maybe they’re onto something. I’m definitely terrified of this monstrosity:

            Quick! Grab an elephant gun!
            or maybe
            Thar she Blows! To the Harpoons!

            I thought Y’golonac was supposed to be headless.

    Mirrors are tremendously important to people whose main objects in life are preening and virtue-signaling.

    • publiusr

      Nah–that’s just to blind the men.

      • sferrin

        They don’t need mirrors for that. I’m pretty sure most of them would have you reaching for the eye bleach in no time.

  • I am a firm believer that most people should not be seen naked.

  • Bob

    And not a doable one in the stack.

  • se jones

    Ah yes, the wisdom of nature thing.

    I’ve been looking for 100 women willing to partake in a 24 hour naked protest, in January, outside one of the evil fracking sites near Boulder. No takers so far. I’ll keep you posted.

    Talk about yay we’re doomed.

  • Bruce

    A naturist way of lloking at things…..Hmm.

  • Wait, didn’t Archimedes do something like this, only with more mirrors and fewer naked women? And wouldn’t that be directing a weapon at the convention? Tsk, sure is gonna be cold in the Federal pen without longjohns or even bloomers.
