The endless persecution of Planned Parenthood, coupled with local legislative attempts to further legislate abortion inspired this Legacy piece. The hypocrisy of the attention to men’s sexual satisfaction vs. women’s sexual consequences is ridiculously apparent. I hope for a time when “sex education” and “pro-choice” aren’t things, but just part of education and life.
This painting raised a bit of controversy on Facebook when I entered in into the ALA Spring Show. The Arkansas Times did an online feature on it, and everything was resolved in the end. it has since been the subject of a blog post at The Postmortem Post.
Since that episode, it has been brought to my attention that this could also represent the Luxury Tax on women’s “sanitary items.” Although that was not my initial idea, I welcome it as an interpretation.
