So an artist named Daniel Edwards has created "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston". The statue is a portrayal of a naked Britney Spears "giving birth" on all fours on a bearskin rug. “Britney provides inspiration for those struggling with the ‘right choice’,” said Edwards.
According to the gallery where this work of art will shown:
"'Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston,' believed Pro-Life’s first monument to the ‘act of giving birth,’ is purportedly an idealized depiction of Britney in delivery. Natural aspects of Spears’ pregnancy, like lactiferous breasts and protruding naval, compliment a posterior view that depicts widened hips for birthing and reveals the crowning of baby Sean’s head.
The monument also acknowledges the pop-diva’s pin-up past by showing Spears seductively posed on all fours atop a bearskin rug with back arched, pelvis thrust upward, as she clutches the bear’s ears with ‘water-retentive’ hands. "
As my friend Dirk says, "Ohhhhhhh it's britney giving birth. For some reason I thought she was waiting to get fucked on a bearskin rug. How in the world could I mix that up?"
Dirk's response really says it all. Honestly, I keep expecting to find out that this is a really elaborate prank. It's wrong on so many levels!
First of all, I guess these pro-life folks are not of the usual sex-fearing misogynist breed we usually hear from. These must be from the "it's ok to objectify women as sexual beings, but only if they reproduce" school of pro-life thought. So still women-hating, but allowing some male-identified sex in the mix. I sense a whole new subgenre of porn being, uh, born as we speak! Instead of showing a woman's vagina being filled by huge penises, pro-life porn will show vaginas, like this sculpture, that are filled from within, with the entire bodies of their male offspring. (isn't that a Freudian thing - men wanting to crawl back in their mothers' wombs?) The title of the piece - "The Birth of Sean Preston" is another clue that the woman - even a famous one - is still the object here.
My head is spinning!
