Feminist disfigurement of mermaid's body
This forum has posted many crucial discussions over the years that have demonstrated how feminism, as an ideology, is centrally responsible for the imposition of the androgynous standard of appearance for women.
Here's an appalling recent case, from India, that reconfirms this premise.
The pertinent points of this case of political correctness gone mad:
The story is appalling, though fully predictable. This feminist "women's association" found womenly curves to be "obscene," and so ordered a literal eradication of those curves.
The exact parallel between the feminist agenda behind this act of institutional vandalism, and the modern fashion industry, which similarly eradicates any trace of womanly shapeliness, particularly bust and hips, is clear.
Another article reveals the (predictable) politics of this university:
How often has it been said here that the feminist-driven imposition of emaciated androgyny is an effort to masculinize women. In this act, the edict to reduce the sculpture "into a man’s figure" makes such an agenda clear.
Imagine the kind of mind that finds the female form "vulgar." That's the same kind of mind that dominates modern media culture in North America and suppresses voluptuous femininity.
The article comes with a small image of the mutilated mermaid.
Another article shows the heartbroken gardener looking at the ruins of his artwork. The brown area shows where the sculpture's buxom curves had been sliced off.
There's even a brief video showing the final moments of the feminist-mandated disfigurement. It indicates how gorgeous this sculptural bed had been -- a little green paradise.
I haven't been able to find any images of the pre-mutilated mermaid sculpture, but the original article stated that it was patterned after the Kunhiraman mermaid, shown here. This picture shows the luscious, feminine curves that the garden sculpture formerly possessed, with an sensually heavy bust and full hips and thighs. Only a truly resentful, embittered mind could have seen something offensive in this opulent celebration of the well-fed female form.
The sculpture's curvaceous luxuriance speaks of indolent, seductive beauty and essential femininity. Perhaps that was what the feminists resented so much.
This case of the physical eradication of visibly womanly beauty by a feminist agenda perfectly mirrors the situation of the modern fashion industry, which similarly suppresses any trace of essential womanliness in models, forcing them to be so androgynously thin as to look as if someone had taken shears to their bodies and cut away any traces of feminine shapeliness.
This case is an all-too-grim metaphor of what a specific political agenda has done to womanhood, and to traditional feminine beauty, in the modern age.
