01) New Yorkers call for removal of Met painting that ‘sexualizes’ girl

“New Yorkers launched a petition demanding that the Metropolitan Museum of Art remove a 1938 painting of a young woman with her underwear exposed due to the “current climate around sexual assault” — but the Met refused Sunday.

[…]

“The artist of this painting, Balthus, had a noted infatuation with pubescent girls and this painting is undeniably romanticizing the sexualization of a child,” writes Mia Merrill, 30, a New York City entrepreneur who started the petition.

[…]

“Ultimately, it’s a small ask in consideration of how expansive their art collection is … how overtly sexual the painting is, and the current news headlines highlighting a macro issue about the public health and safety of women.”

[…]

But a rep for the museum said it won’t remove the painting because art is meant to reflect many time periods — not just the current one.

“[Our] mission is to collect, study, conserve, and present significant works of art across all times and cultures in order to connect people to creativity, knowledge, and ideas,” said spokesman Kenneth Weine.”


For The Metropolitan Museum of Art…

      Thought crimes in gray areas offend them the most, as they cannot stop them from happening.

      They want to eliminate the very concept, of the sexual child, adolescent and teen.

      The fact that they are brazen liars in this pursuit, does not bother them.

        I think it’s because they see it as something that could please pedophiles. Since they hate pedophiles and want us to suffer as much as possible, dessexualizing children seems to be worth it.
