Women’s bodies have long been politicized. The present debate, legislative bills, and language used in reference to women’s bodies and women’s health is based in complete senseless disrespect for the real women they are speaking of. It is outrageous, unacceptable, and downright dangerous. Current legislation is not based in science, logic, and compassion for people, for women; rather it is founded in power, self-righteousness, and arrogance.
You do not get to legislate my body for your entertainment. Do not be mistaken, there is nothing playful about legislating women’s health and women’s bodies.
MY body is NOT your political playground.
Using Sharpie markers, rubbing alcohol and acrylic paint, my goal with this piece was to juxtapose the whimsy and lackadaisical attitudes with the bold, irrefutable statement of resistance.
