This racy public statue of a naked woman sexting riled up parents in the Kansas City area.
The controversy began in May, when local parent Joanne Hughes posted a petition on Change.org calling for the city to remove the statue. “With all the problems we are having with sexting in our youth culture, do we really want to be encouraging children and teenagers to take nude photos of themselves?” Hughes asked.
Do you think the statue’s inappropriate?
- rideordiefailortry answered: no. because whether or not the statue was there, sexting will not change nor will the people doing it. same difference.

- onechrisn answered: does it encourage sexting when the headless figure seems to depict the objectification sexting brings?
- dragonsheep answered: Yes.
- xopurplegirlxoify answered: I think it’ll actually help teenagers stop and think about it and maybe decide not to do it. If they do, they were gonna do it anyway.
- tuesdai answered: I think the statue is inappropriate, but not for the same reasons the Kansas mommies probably do.
- unrealchampion29 said: Absolutely not. If we don’t address the issue it won’t get better. The statue is supposed to get the issue on the public agenda.
- winds-of-fortune answered: No, it’s a reflection of the controversies of our time. I think it has historical value. People are too immature to handle it responsibly.

- steam-and-crunch answered: The statue is hideous. I wouldn’t want to see that while walking through the park. o.O It doesn’t belong in a public park.
- xxblueiris answered: It mirrors our culture. C’est la vie.

- wasavoidingthinkingabouthomework answered: It probably has a meaning , and in that case would be ok. Maybe it just needs a plaque to explain the artistic meaning behind it.
- iswing answered: There is a place for this artwork, but I don’t think it’s in a public park.

- longhairpapabear answered: Jesus… this is what some people are worried about? No, it’s not inapropriate.
- wineandchocolate answered: A park is a family friendly place. There are plenty of other places the statue can be exhibited.A place full of kids shouldn’t be one of them
- youung-wiild-and-free answered: First of all what was the point of even having this in a park ? im kinda confused
- mikiballard answered: kids see worse everyday on t.v. and the internet. they are the one sexting. parents need to get with the program!

- dendroica answered: The statue is obviously not sexting since she has an ordinary digital camera rather than a cellphone.
- 13bethan13 answered: I think it’s all about the promotion and advertisement of the statue, If it’s portrayed in a certain way people will see it in that way
