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.

    While free countries enable even their poorest citizens to enjoy annual incomes three times greater than those of the rest of the world, envy remains one of the most dangerous of the anti-social passions infecting the West.

    Although we rely upon the geniuses among us to create the gadgets, gizmos, and gasoline we depend upon, genius becomes bottled up and useless when centralized restrictions limit liberty.
