Highly artistic. The pose really draws the eye to the penis. It draws you in. You don't wanna look, but you gotta.

You do want to look.

A school principal got fired in Florida for having a Michael Angelo statue in the school's curriculum.


Shinagami091 t1_jeanu14 wrote

I believe he resigned. Not sure if it was by choice or not. If I were a principle and started getting complaints about what has been considered art for centuries being called pornographic, I’d probably resign too and move to a state not run by a republican governor


hyperfication t1_jebfxid wrote

So wait, let me get this straight... Statue Of David, one of the most influential and historical pieces of art in the history of mankind is bad....

But dragqueen storytime is good?

You Americans are a funny bunch


Shinagami091 t1_jebt3fr wrote

Both are good, to me at least. Republican conservatives think they’re bad


YesplzMm t1_jeazj9u wrote

Yeah I don't understand what that means, "in the curriculum"? Like is it the first thing you see walking into the school and the junk is right at face height, or you can't enter the building without brushing up against specifically the groin region?? Or just studying it from a book or hands on mini statues for all students?? I really assume no. But context is important and typically ignored in these polarized arguments.


the_other_jc t1_jebf3m9 wrote

About what you'd expect, e.g., not a life-size statue sticking its junk in your face when you walk into the school. It was an art lesson, probably a picture in a text or video presentation. "A school principal in Tallahassee, Florida was forced to resign after parents complained about a Renaissance art lesson that showed students Michelangelo's sculpture of the Bible's David." Three parents complained, one of those called it pornographic, and bye-bye principal.
Parents who considered it educational and great art didn't get a voice. Which highlights the question; WHICH parent's rights? The most conservative, with no regard for anyone else's rights.
Which is directly on brand for conservatives.


YesplzMm t1_jebhpxd wrote

I have no idea the age of these students either. But whether it was conservatives or liberals. Whichever has the most shock appeal behind their policy is usually the one that is adheard to. Usually the zero tolerance thing is what fucks anyone within public schools. So yeah parents offended and are the minority over rules reason and practically all legitimate explanations. Its just a red vs. blue thing because thats so hot ever since everyone's getting on and enjoying ripping America apart at the seams.

Been visiting San Diego and Irvine lately to meet the wife’s relatives. As a Florida native I’m starting to realize that my state is a low budget, Golan-Globus, straight-to-video ripoff of California.

Hows the homeless situation?


One-Pain1214 t1_jea10ag wrote

It’s better in Florida. If you live in a nice enough an area the cops drive them ten towns away and give them $50.

Yeah, I guess that is cheaper than actually helping them for real

Real talk, did you know the homeless shelter costs money in Florida? You gotta beg for money just to sleep somewhere overnight.

Easy there Putin bear - I was homeless, I know the struggle


bigsoupsteve t1_jeawbs3 wrote

They do that in california too. Irvine is notorious for it.


[deleted] t1_jeawzkl wrote

Not as good. So homeless folks leave ( or are run out) and become someone else's problem, thus making Florida look a bit better, and the problem being foisted on other states, making them look worse.

Once states like California are overwhelmed (because they are housing the homeless from all over the country) their systems fall over, the bureaucratic shortcomings become glaring, and politicians don't know how to respond. Then whole neighborhoods fall apart because these states don't do what the red states do: box up the homeless and shoo them away.

It seems like the people of Florida are being non-consensually fucked recently.

I would love to see "Florida Editions" of classical nude artwork with the "offensive" bits replaced with renderings of right-wing crackpots. Like David but his junk is just DeSantis' face looking confused, or the Venus de Milo but the nips are identical renditions in marble of MTG mid-apoplectic scream (bonus points if pink-tinged)


tyler1128 t1_je9sgg8 wrote

I personally think the real solution in Florida is to just spay and neuter everyone at birth, and restructure down there so no child has to ever see a penis or vagina again.

welfaremofo t1_jeaux7e wrote

When you have a political movement which uses it’s own failures as justification for being in power through deceptive messaging you get a positive feedback loop. That incentivizes politicians to grief the public into giving them more power. Florida.


Half-DrunkPhilosophy t1_jebmatx wrote

Funny, cause the reason many of the ancient Greek statues even have those fig leaves, or the genitals removed entirely was from another wave of 'decency' sorts who were shocked at the whole idea of anything nude being around.
So much history literally hacked away at cause there might be some penis or labia showing.

Might be a stupid question, but imma ask anyway. I’ve seen a lot of statues like these in museums and the Louvre. Why do y’all think they all made the peckers so small? Was it for modesty?


rogless t1_jec1lhs wrote

Depending on the era, a small penis was seen as more civilized / refined. A generously endowed statue might have been regarded as bestial. That’s the long and the short of it, at least according to my Intro to Art History class from many years ago.

Take off on the Barberini Faun. The original is not actually a dude but a drunken faun follower of Bacchus so it has a sort of a tail on the back. The sprawling quality of the pose may be a restorers exaggeration. Someone threw it in a moat.
