(As posted to my Gazette blog)
In an earlier post, I mentioned I was creeped out by the idea of gay men drawing vaginas for what some are calling “a humorous” coffee-table book. The “art” project is in the Kickstarter stage, and is getting a fair amount of virtual ink in Internet publications.
Hey, I guess it’s art, and whatever floats your boat, right. Personally, I wouldn’t have it on my coffee table. Sorry. I don’t find the concept humorous, but you all know I’m a prude, yes? ( The Huffington Post has an article about the book, posted Aug. 9.)
Anyway, I got to wondering this morning how men — particularly gay men — would feel if lesbians came up with a similar project, something like Lesbians Draw Penises. Imagine the fun feminists could have with that project, too (whether lesbians or not) . . . Humorous? Would you have it on your coffee table?
