Feminists at Hillary’s alma mater flip out over man-in-underwear statue

Get the smelling salts! The proto-feminists at Hillary Clinton’s alma mater are getting the vapors over a sleepwalking man in his underwear.

And he’s not even real.

Hundreds of Wellesley College students have signed a petition on Change.org to get the university to remove a statue from public view on the campus because the bronze-and-paint artwork is apparently scaring the girls.

“[T]his highly lifelike sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community,” the petition states.

“While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students.”

But the artist behind the statue – “Sleepwalker” – apparently subscribes to the “no such thing as bad publicity” school of performance.

Tony Matelli told the Boston Globe he couldn’t be happier.

“When was the last time a work of art was talked about so much and got so much attention?” he said. “I can’t remember when.”

Maybe a little too much attention.

That’s because a school that only last summer announced an international initiative to create the Women World Partners project to educate the next generation of female leaders is apparently so full of scaredy-cat shrinking violets that a statue of a man with more on than Michelangelo’s “David” is too stressful for the ladies.

They really have come a long way, baby.
