Sounds like she needs to find a way to remove that sandbar from her vagina.

"OMG! I might have to explain something to my children that makes me uncomfortable! Ohes noes!!11eleventy1!"

Suck it up, sister, and quit your biatching.

Ironically, Ms. Pimentel's one-woman crusade has created more interest in the VMM show than the museum could have mustered on its own.

Remember the intro to The SImpsons Movie where Bart was skateboarding naked? Then Skinner's mom pointed and screeched, "Everyone, don't look where I'm pointing!"

Why some people don't understand that they merely provide free publicity while making asses of themselves, I'll never understand.

/could also be a shill for the museum, I suppose, but "area mom" seems to be everywhere, upset about everything

Are you really sad that a whale 200 years ago died? I mean, it would be dead by now anyway.

And who is to say it wasn't scavenged from beached whales?

The whales died for every other reason except this, troll. As it says in TFA, whalers used the discarded bits to make the scrimshaw engravings.

The whalers had idle hands and feverish minds. Scrimshawing was their means of expression, their release valve. Using ship-made hand tools and tobacco juice for ink, they set upon whale leftovers. Some of their work is finely detailed. Some is undeniably erotic.

The size of the woman in question may be a good indicator of how closely she associates with the species, and hence the level of her discomfort.

Thing is, I doubt she'd even need to explain anything. Kids aren't interested in prehistoric boobs or what looks like two people wrestling. Now in a movie or TV show? Then they might have questions.

Which makes her discomfort and drama all the more ridiculous. The woman's derp is weapons grade.

She could use some bone, if you know what I mean...

She should have some sex, I guess is what I mean.

If the whales actually were killed for only their teeth, and if the pieces weren't centuries-old antiques, and if scrimshaw wasn't an inherently cool lost art form with strong historical significance, I'd probably agree with you, but...

Can someone please explain to me what the difference is between what's "Porn" and deemed "NSFW" because I'm having trouble understanding why this article came with a warning when for all intents and purposes, the works shown in the link are for all intents and purposes, considered in the real world as, ART.   And no, I'm not talking about the sort of one night showing seen in a SoHo Gallery depicting fresh human urine and B.M. as some Modern Movement of Expressionism. I'm talking about actual ART.  Not, Crap.

Call me a bleeding heart liberal, but to live in society is to have to sometimes suck it up.

2013-03-24 03:56:57 AM
The art in question placed out of reach of children, suitable marked as unsuitable for kids and prudes? Yes?
Then what is the problem? Unless she lifted each of her kids up to see, they wouldn't notice the pieces even.
 
2013-03-24 03:58:21 AM
displayed in a case raised high off the floor, well beyond scope of a toddler's inquisitive eyes, and lighting is prudishly dim. Next to the display is a sign: "Hide Your Eyes! These pieces of scrimshaw are not intended for children."

WTF more does she want? Can't she read? The display pictured seemed to me more aesthetic than pornographic, though admittedly some other pieces were not shown.

Museums have a lot of examples of ancient porn, from the Egyptians to the Romans and even further back. History is full of government sanctioned houses of prostitution. History also has periods in it where homosexuality is universally accepted, where their creativity is praised and one of the ancient worlds deadliest fighting units was made up of paired homosexuals. Sparta. The military reasoned that paired homosexuals would fight even harder to protect each other than if unpaired. The unit became one of the most feared in the ancient world, renowned for their ferocity.

Maybe she'd like a display concerning that unit put up instead.

Plus, ancient porn tends to be rather mild in comparison to today's Internet version. Victorians got all steamed up if a bit of bare ankle showed from under a full length dress.

I have an example of WW2 Japanese porn, salvaged from the sea by my father, who was in the Navy. His ship was stopped in an area where a battle had sunk a Japanese sub and the crew hauled some of the debris aboard.

WW2 Japanese had really rotten drawing skills. Nothing like the American 8- pagers. Nothing like the Anime they produce today.

When you view world history, it helps to view all of it, not just the cleaned up versions.

I think she'd faint at any exhibits of codpieces 'gentlemen' wore for a time -- along with tights and frilly collars. Those shoes with extended, curled up pointy toes you often see in illustrations? They represented the size of the owners penis. The longer and more pronounced the curl, the bigger he was. (Well -- most exaggerated.)
And you thought they were just a curious fashion statement.

The lady needs to get over it and better not take her kids to any major art museum where displaying the privates on works of art is considered beauty.

There's a decent chance that she did exactly that just so she had an excuse to complain.

Snargi, if there was no market for whale products, there would be no whalers. If there are no whalers, there are no bored whalers making scrimshaw. I *highly* doubt anyone will assume the whale was killed only for the teeth. I really don't think he is trolling.

NSFW is subby's code for "don't let your boss catch you looking at boobs or you'll loose your job, you boob!  There be bare breasts abreast!" Your boss maybe cool with boobs or genuine art boobs, but in general, it is polite to warn of boobage simply because it could be...misconstrued.

Well, I'm not going to get into the whaling debate that seems to be developing here, but I will say the following..
1) compared to any porn on the net, this is pretty mild. "Oh my god!! Boobies!! It's filth!!!"
2) this was done 200ish years ago, when whaling was done for commercial reasons. There is no reason for it today, but back then... Well, even then it was iffy
3) I WISH I had half the skill shown in the pics in the article.

Oh Pish!  Seriously. PISH!  I KNOW what the NSFW Code means.  My point is that there's a big difference between the single lined doodle and an all out photo spread of a pair of "Boobs" when one is perusing the 'net during work hours.  Surely there's a definition of where the line of crossing it, lays.  That is of course none exists and all of us need to label "NSFW" tags on any visual media of an animals mammory's???

I think NSFW is just nudity.  Porn includes the depiction of various fun activities.
