Any time someone responds with "the opposite of breasts is penises" is forgetting that breasts are sexualized, not sex organs. The opposite of this piece, if we are reducing this to women:men (christ! Again?!) would simply be nippled pecs.

CharlesF- i'll be the first to agree with you about the slippery slope that is commentary in art, but to say that a visual essay is *not* art is a silly as being the curator who thinks art *should* be challenging... a challenging visual essay is a viable option for artistic expression, and the piece rendered is one of art. it's 2012- everything is art, nothing is art, blah blah blah...

CharlesF- the reduction of which you speak is Ben's comment on the very basic separation of sexes that continues into Elles. it is not an attack. clearly. also it is art. that's just as Ann as the nose on plain's face.

for the record, i'm not in the show. i was invited, but declined because i found the main premise of a show with all men to be laughable (having made the joke before: "when will men get a chance to do a show together?!") and the details to be far too blurry to even consider (is the *show* a curated response to Elles? are the individual works made *in* response--to a show that hadn't even opened yet? or is it about feminine *practices* in art, and what the fuck does that even mean?). without a clear idea of what the hell i was being invited to, i stayed away.

after a week of discussing all the finer points of content and context, censorship and harassment, victim blaming and myriad other moral outcry, my opinion on the matter of ben's smart print and it's removal from an art school remains: it's bullshit.

yah, Spring Break really pulled off something unique and unforeseen in drawing cartoony breasts.

ben did not draw anyone's "likeness" here... these are not caricatures.

art is supposed to be open to interpretation, and cornish has decided to say "no, this is what it is." and that's bullshit.

Nov 30, 2011 shauniqua commented on Is Anyone Watching This? (Sucklord, Etc.).
i do. it is the only show i have ever purchased on itunes because i couldn't get it right away via torrents. of course, this says as much about its relative popularity with pirates as it does my addiction, but the short and sweet of it is: i fucking love it.
