But great execution. It is horrid, but when you zoom in there is good attention to detail

For real, this is an excellent relief sculpture - great perspective. Just creepy and inappropriate is all


KnotiaPickles t1_j98r8aj wrote

Sometimes it makes me sad that we put everything under so much harsh scrutiny. Whoever made this most likely didn’t have any creepy intentions and probably made it for a child they loved, not knowing someday it would be plastered on the internet for everyone to insult. Sorry to whoever’s grandma this was who made it.


FractalApple t1_j98uzqy wrote

What gets me is that it’s only a dollar. Someone’s heart n soul went into making it! And your right, it’s probably well intentioned. Context is important though, and we also severely downplay the wrongdoing of the church and their involvement in pedophilia

I'm betting that it's mass produced. My MIL gave me one almost identical (different paint) that had been hanging in my husband's bedroom as a kid.

Yeah, it seems like society has no chill sometimes.

I mean - a pink hat boy Christian is kinda… ironic?

little boy crying into his hands with a buttflap jammies makes it so much worse


StormEarthandFyre t1_j98dwvu wrote

Where's the funny?


smithm3254 t1_j98h6g4 wrote

Not really funny but organized religion is a haven for sexual predators. More of a feature than a flaw.


cacophonic7 t1_j98qa7t wrote

And the fact that you can look at the boy as either praying, or weeping with his hands over his face…


androshalforc1 t1_j98tf8x wrote

i thought it was a girl because christians would be mortified that a boy is wearing pink.


justlooking9889 t1_j98u41i wrote

So, you’re including Judaism, Islam, Buddism, Shintoism, Zorasteriansim, the Sikhs, Scientology, Vodoo, and countless (about 4,200) other organized religions? Or did you just mean to say Catholicism?

Edit: Hey downvoters remember not to let inconvenient things like facts get in the way of what you feel is true.

If you all feel so strongly about it, I suggest you go visit all the different churches, mosques and temples in your town and save the kids. I’m sure your efforts will be much appreciated.

Here’s a list of world religions. Go through the list and give an example of how each one is guilty:


denn23rus t1_j9974sd wrote

basically those religions where priests are forbidden to have wives.


smithm3254 t1_j98wsf3 wrote

Yes all of the above. You’re the one naming Catholicism. That should be very telling about your question.


sin-and-love t1_j98uir4 wrote

Ever notice how anyone who calls themselves a "freethinker"' is in fact the most dogmatic person in the room?


Technicolor_Reindeer t1_j997b19 wrote

I'm sure you wish that was the case.


sin-and-love t1_j999r2k wrote

My personal experience has shown it to be the case. It's like how "I'm not like you sheep, I don't trust the mainstream news outlets." is always followed by "But listen to this guy scream about gay frogs."


Significant-Ad2669 t1_j98o8w0 wrote

Aren't there more pedophiles at public schools than churches and not to mention how the anime Indistry Is extremely weird with their girls under 18


smithm3254 t1_j98q3s7 wrote

Whataboutism isn’t the point I was trying to make. Sorry next time I’ll include a link to a bar graph that includes all offenders of sexual assault. Original point is still valid.


NottaBought t1_j98qtnd wrote

The thing is, any group that provides power is going to attract abusers. The anime industry, public schools, churches, even the medical field all have these issues. The problem is more what you do once you find them and how you prevent them from hurting anyone. If you don’t have those protections in place, if you sweep it under the rug when you find out about these people, that’s when it stops being “bad people are everywhere” and starts being “you’re supporting bad people,” and a lot of churches have been discovered to be sweeping these things under the rug.


Technicolor_Reindeer t1_j997cxw wrote

I wasn't aware anime was a religion and being taught to kids in their houses of worship.

And do name the public school sex abuse scandal on par with the ones uncovered at churches?


_Administrator_ t1_j98xvxo wrote

There are even religions where such cases happen more frequently but you won’t see anyone making jokes about that religion.

„Pakistani Maulana giving sex education to student“


timk85 t1_j98oney wrote

Bro, don't even attempt to question the Reddit hivemind narratives.


smithm3254 t1_j98sv90 wrote

A well documented history of systematic abuse of power by the clergy is hardly a “narrative”.


Technicolor_Reindeer t1_j997hjh wrote

Millions of dollars of hush money paid out and countless pedo priest transfesrs is a "narrative" apparently /s


WonderfulSpeed1739 t1_j995n3q wrote

Why do you wokes make everything about sex?


Technicolor_Reindeer t1_j997lkr wrote

You have it backwards, hunny. Its the type of people who say "woke" who are obsessed with sex. Tracking schoolgirls' periods, banning books, obsessing over drag shows, demanding gential inspections of athletes, the list goes on.


WonderfulSpeed1739 t1_j999fuv wrote

See you just did it again. The woodcut is in no way sexualized. If you believe it is then it is you.


chickadee- t1_j98r397 wrote

Artist's intention: girl (see: pink baseball cap and cuffs) trying very hard to be boyish (see: teddy instead of doll, baseball, etc) because [sign]

What people (and I, at first look) see: priest=pedo joke but execution is so uninspired/crude that it's just hilariously bad


CopperRed3 t1_j98rs9k wrote

I saw the Artists intention too. Still oddlyterrifying

The funny part is that priests REALLY love boys


OwlHex4577 t1_j999d7x wrote

Take your hat off when you’re praying, you little heathen!


smudgesbudges t1_j991pnf wrote

There was a “God loves girls” counterpart, too. A lot of grandmothers painted stuff like this when I was a kid.


f1ve-Star t1_j98ixx1 wrote

Odd. I thought the child was a little girl crying. Pink hat and accents, but trying to be a boy playing ball, liking teddy bears not dolls etc. Really changes up the meaning.


chickadee- t1_j98q5o2 wrote

Pretty sure you're correct- but it's quite subtle so it's easy to miss those details, thereby changing the whole meaning of the piece lmao


f1ve-Star t1_j98xlvk wrote

It's not subtle if you are the little girl trying so hard to be loved. Ouch, right in the feels.

There are so many phallic images here, can’t be an accident. Even the shape of the boy’s hat and body is penis shaped.

Lmao oh god which comedian had a bit about not being specific when you say you love children.

"I love kids!" Thats fine!

"I love little girls!" Okay getting too specific.

"I love nine year old girls!" Nope. Go straight to jail.

Considering all we know about the church churches and organize religion I’m convinced that’s the pedophilia ring.

I'd pay $1 to throw that away


bucko_fazoo t1_j98gabh wrote

For anyone at least vaguely spiritual, meaning most people, it would seem indecorous to throw it away. Blasphemous, even, that's the only reason it's not in a landfill. If common sense prevailed this would have been in the trash a long time ago, because good lord it's hideous.

Tall_Square252 t1_j98kf8s wrote

This reminds me of a car wash my christian high school was working. One of the girls working it got angry because people were cat calling her. So our bible teacher took over and he held the sign up and saw people laughing. He then looked at the sign. It read “it’s free”


Earguy t1_j98mynz wrote

So, victim blaming. "Of course they're going to do that, look at what you're wearing (or holding, whatever). "

Sorry if it hit a nerve.


Tall_Square252 t1_j990hey wrote

No it did not hit a nerve for me. My point is we may think one thing and someone else see the exact same thing as see something completely different. I had an advertisement class and the professor show us campaigns that total missed the mark because of failure to see how it may be interpreted
