This one ain't coming off. Consider this my last post for a while. I think that there are a lot of people in publishing who are hypocritical. It's fine to make trashy teen books full of sex without consequences, but god forbid anyone post a painting of a nude figure. It's fine to have books about puberty for children... just as long as no one actually looks at any of them and notices that there are nude figures drawn on the inside.
What's sad about the video above is that it's clearly one woman doing the complaining... and she got what she wanted. Even if the rest of the darn city thought the statue was beautiful, they became the unimportant voices. I think that's sad.
