"They said the photograph suggested we condoned bestiality, which was an arrestable offence," she said.

"It's crazy. Perhaps the cultural references were lost on them."


I'd say there's no perhaps about it.

Is this swan porn still ok?

OK, let's just go ahead and call Western Civilization dead, shall we? Last one out please grab the Mona Lisa.

We're soon going to be arresting anyone with paintings of cherubs for possession of child porn, right?

Jeez let's hope they don't hear about the necrophilia and bestiality in the twilight universe.

Just like all the depictions of battles are condoning killing people!

It's just simple logic, people.

Western Civilization apparently died around 3000 years ago. And I guarantee there many were paintings, murals and statues on this subject done at least as explicitly.

Csb time...

I had a dream a few weeks back, that I had sex with a crane or stork type bird. As I am not a furry, I woke up feeling confused and violated.

Reminds me of the British cops in the Beatles movie Let It Be, during the rooftop concert. History is being made, and they shut it down due to noise complaints.

For the last two decades, I've been the acting chair at Berkley's ornithology department. As many of you may know, swans mate for life. And this particular picture not only physically depicts that fact, but it also confirms it spiritually and emotionally.

Male swans, as I've learned, are aggressive creatures. If I had to conjecture, which I'm often called upon to do, that woman was once a little girl. Fancy that! And as little girls are prone to do, she went skinny dipping in a pond. I would surmise that while in that pond, she was lured and seduced by the beautiful mating dance of an aphrodisiac inducing swan. He lured her close, rubbed his feathers on her cheeks, and then proceeded to have sexual intercourse with her. Wild? Yes, of course.

To the swan that was natural. It was the natural completion of a natural selective act. To the young woman? Well, that's up to conjecture, but I'm willing to bet my three PHds that she didn't waddle away from the act complaining. Swans have proven to be nature's most gentle and satisfying lovers. There was obviously no complaint on her part, because she returned to the pond each spring, succumbing to the swan's influence long enough for a statue to be carved by a curious stonesmith.

And who might that stonesmith be? Why none other than myself. So, without a doubt, I can tell you that the young woman actively and willing-fully engaged in sex with that duck from the time of her early teens until she passed away in her early thirties from an unknown illness, with flu type symptoms.

To call this obscene smacks in the very face of the definition of love. I will not stand respectfully by and watch the act of "bestiality" be denied its place in our legal statutes. Woman-on-man love exists. Man-on-man love exists. So where are we to draw the line at Swan-on-woman love? I shall'nt draw it. I shall'nt not.

Just another example of why police powers need to be expanded for the good of us all.

I love how a piece of art can get someones panties in a wad.

The woman and the pony were posed before velvet draperies which were fringed with deedlee-balls. They were flanked by Doric columns. In front of one column was a potted palm. The Picture that Weary had was a print of the first dirty photograph in history. The word photography was first used in 1839, and it was in that year, too, that Louis J. M. Daguerre revealed to the French Academy that an image formed on a silvered metal plate covered with a thin film of silver iodide could be developed in the presence of mercury vapor.
In 1841, only two years later, an assistant to Daguerre, AndrÈ Le FËvre, was arrested in the Tuileries Gardens for attempting to sell a gentleman a picture of the woman and the pony. That was where Weary bought his picture,, too-in the Tuileries. Le FËvre argued that the picture was fine art, and that his intention was to make Greek mythology come alive. He said that columns and the potted palm proved that.
When asked which myth he meant to represent, Le FËvre, replied that there were thousands of myths like that, with the woman a mortal and the pony a god.
He was sentenced to six months in prison. He died there of pneumonia. So it goes.

"They stood there and didn't leave until we took the piece down."

You should've let them stand there until closing then call 911 if they refused to leave at closing time.

It is kind of a striking picture. It might not be the sort of thing you'd want your toddlers asking questions about. However, if the picture was INSIDE the gallery and nobody was complaining, WTF? I think it's a good modern reproduction of Leda and the Swan, myself.

Here's a link to the actual photo; I'd show it, but who knows what would happen. Link

They would have tasered someone to death long before closing time.

Honey swan does not care. He doesn't give a shiat.

If loving a swan is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

By that kind of logic I want this piece of art taken down for it's depiction of cannibalism

FTA: "A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said the incident had not been recorded as a crime"

Sooo...it wasn't actually a bestiality charge?

Sissy gallery owners should not have caved to some bus-riding cop. Asking for an actual legal statue they police were trying to enforce might have let them keep their art.

/yes, statue. it's an article

Are they going to recall every last copy of Disney's Beauty and the Beast?
 
2012-04-29 12:08:00 AM
The actual picture is quite a bit different than the statue pictured in the article. Trying to raise that to bestiality is still a hell of a stretch but if that actual picture was visible while riding by on a bus (i.e. highly public) that's definitely pushing social norms. Not agreeing that government has any right to force them to take it down but sometimes a bit of tact on the part of gallery owner is a good idea.

Reminds me of a lecture from college where the Professor said "Nothing is offensive until we are told that is it offensive." and explained how that was true for not just offensive things, but of other things as well. A guy who has a book of fictional stories of preteens having sex is okay until we are told that he is creepy and those fictional stories are no different than actually owning movies of real kids having sex.

Here we have classic works of art, someone tells us that it is beastiality and now, it is that.
