Rant/VentingNew "Fearless girl" statue staring down Wall Street's famous "Charging Bull" for International Woman's Day (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat

No need for a link, it's everywhere in the news. Just google it.

I find the symbolism quite awesome.

The iconic bull statue on Wall street was installed in 1989 as a symbol of "bull market": share prices rising, generalized optimism, prosperity for all... But the strongly masculine image never escaped anyone: the aggressive, strong, belligerent and unpredictable aspect of masculinity symbolized just as much in the muscles and horns of the beast as in its massive testicles that visiting women and beta males just love to fondle and take pictures of. It represents that same strong masculinity that is necessary to navigate in high finances: massive risks, massive rewards, massive losses, massive creation of wealth, massive destruction of resources.

So it was just fitting that at some point in our modern times, feminists/women would need to counteract the overly Masculine symbol by a Feminine one.

They just did. At the occasion of the International Women's Woe-is-me Day. And in the most splendid manner: by choosing the image of... a defiant little girl.

The combination of those two symbols is full of meaning. I love it.

First, apparently when women see Men as strong charging bulls, they see themselves as defiant little girls. Exactly as the red pill teaches. So next time you feel bad about having to force yourself to see women as children in order to Game efficiently, just remember the statue that feminists put on Wall Street: they see themselves as defiant little girls so why wouldn't you?

Second, the irony of the symbol didn't seem to have registered in the mind of those who put it there: what do you think would happen if a little girl would defiantly stand in the path of a massive charging bull? That's right. She would die on the spot in an absolutely horrid manner. It is likely that, in the last milliseconds of her short life, just before the sharp and strong horn - projected with fantastic kinetic energy by tons of muscles moving in a coordinate manner towards a single goal - eventually connect with her pale, young and fragile skin covering her soft belly, the young girl's defiant attitude would cede place to one of tragic fright. She might just have the time to form in her mind the distinct thought "I have made a terrible mistake. What was I thinking?" just before stupidly losing her precious life... The symbolism of it all just shows, as clearly as it was possible, how out-of-touch with reality feminist dogma is. But then, what would you expect from a little girl?

Lessons learned:

May you keep this image in your mind, my friends, to remind you always that:

  • Women can be seen as defiant little girls. They think so themselves.

  • Feminism is just little girls posturing, unconscious of how reality works. Don't break a sweat over it. Break a smile about the cuteness of it. While women take pleasure in massaging your big shiny balls.

How apt. In their minds, that is how life works. Strike a brave pose, and you will be celebrated, because something something arc towards justice.

In reality, the poor, delusional girl is gutted and left for scavengers, unless her male family members save her.

[–]brinkleybuzz 67 points68 points  (10 children)

I think the statue is hilarious, nothing more than an expensive shit test. In reality bulls attack only if provoked. The way this would play out in real life is the bull would walk around the little girl or brush her aside on his way to fuck another heifer.

Well, it's not completely baseless. What about tank man? We attribute honor to those who die on certain hills.

[–]mffswharaapds3 26 points27 points  (4 children)

The motives behind tank man and this statue are very different.

One was fighting for actual freedom and democratic rights. The other is fighting for.... A cute Instagram pic? I don't know.

[–]logicalthinker1 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Not to mention he could have fucking died!! Doesn't even matter that it was for noble intentions, it was actually brave.

[–]Deltakilo12 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm sure the PRC had him "disappear" after all that was over

[–]shr3dthegnarbrah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I agree. /u/Platos_slow_brother was attacking the idea of the weak standing up against the strong; that's what I took issue with.

In their minds, that is how life works. Strike a brave pose, and you will be celebrated, because something something arc towards justice.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 4 points5 points  (6 children)

I'm glad you raised that point. I did think of talking about it too because the parallel was obvious but refrained for the sake of brevity.

When I was a young, idealist progressive, I thought of Tank Man as that symbol of the resistance to oppression. Shit that's powerful man!

Now years later and as a realist, I gotta ask you: What's the guy's name? You don't know. Nobody knows. And we don't know because that man got captured right after (you don't see that bit on posters as much as the standing in front of tank aye?) and vanished. He was in all likelihood killed less than 24h later after a very probable long and painful interrogation. Another question for you: what did his bravery result in? Answer: Nothing. Absolutely nothing changed on that day in China or ever after in the decades since this happened.

The only thing that this man's brave action resulted in, besides getting killed, is getting young, idealist westerner progressives' collective dicks hard because of the power of the symbol of resistance. The symbol was printed on posters and tshirts and started thousands of discussions, but in terms of actual effects on reality: nothing.

The collective bravery of soldiers fighting and dying in a hill can change the outcome of the battle sure, but the bravery of an incredibly weak opposition to an incredibly strong force is nothing but a symbol for those who wish reality was not so awfully real. The collective bravery of French résistance to nazi occupation during WW2 had an extremely minor influence on the outcome of war. The number of résistants who were killed in the process compared to what they achieved is incredibly unbalanced. If it wasn't for the superior force of the US entering the war and saving the day, that minor resistance would have been but a barely noticeable splinter in the foot for the otherwise unstoppable march of the evil nazi war machine over Europe.

The symbol is great food for thought and discussed at lengths in the safety of homes, but the reality trumps the symbolism every time.

[–]1971240zgt 0 points1 point  (5 children)

The fact that that you think you can definitively say nothing ever came of the tank man goes to show youre talking out your ass. Too cynical old man. Im sure youve done multiple studies into how tank man effected the younger chinese populations ideas of the government. Sure.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I'm happy to accept the idea that it "effected the younger chinese populations ideas of the government", but where is the bloody outcome? Tiananmen protests date from '89 so 27 years ago. Surely three decades of "effecting ideas" should have been enough time for something to happen out of these ideas right? Yet the party is still in power, as well as censorship.

But again, I'd be happy to be less cynical and be shown what actual results did this man sacrifice brought about? I read between your lines that you know you subject so hopefully you can point me to a couple actual changes.

EDIT: ah shit. I read your comment history and see you're just a blue pill troll. I had hoped for a second you had actually some expertise so I could revise my position in light of expert information. But I guess you just got triggered by my comment on "young, idealist westerners".

[–]1971240zgt 0 points1 point  (2 children)

No i just happened upon this sub. Thought it was a joke but yall are serious. I guess my string of comments was me trying to figure out just where youre coming from. Still so much to learn!

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Our underpinning philosophy is not that new (it's just a modern view of traditional sex roles) but we express it in a tone that is extremely crude, mostly because we realised that the insidious creeping of political correctness (moral shaming tactics) in the political discourse is exactly what made our views so "socially toxic". So we push back violently against PC and end up overdoing it a bit.

Now if you're really interested in learning where we're coming from (say in an academic manner, you dont have to be looking to be convinced, though it's often what happens to those whose curiosity lead them to put aside the tone a second to start digging in our content) I'd say read Michael's story in our sidebar. It's but one example of a random man's foray into red pill thinking. For more info on the theory we developed to finally make sense of the world, see the Rational Male blog best of year 1. In a general manner, the content of the daily sub's main feed is 95% newbie so a lot of strong tone with little good content, but the sidebar is another story..

[–]1971240zgt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hmm i guess it seems so controversial to me because i dont see it as the world just trying to be PC. I see it more as the world trying to actually change for the better. And trying to fit in your shoes i guess people do use extremes both ways to help spread their belief(overbearing feminsts, you guys, you know).

Ill pronably read into it a little later, but Do you act and speak this crudely irl?

[–]Itr0llhoe -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

In this forum, anything by, for, about, relating to, or trending towards a girl or woman is basically on the same level as a corpse and sewage sundae. The statue is baseless and pointless. It's of a girl. Girls are not men. What a dumb fucking statue.

    I never understood the hatred of wall street. Like do these people know that guys work insane fucking hours looking at really boring shit to make your retirement accounts money so you can retire after living a nice, fulfilling life? And the good money they get from it goes to business owners in the city who provide services that they enjoy. And so on.

      Its also a high paying career that accomplishes nothing. Nothing actually gets done you trade class B electronic stock with electronic currency, sell things like financial products etc....all the banking system has done is allow people to accrue massive amounts of debts while simultaneously thinking they are rich haha. Fucking crazy to honor that entire industry. To mention the retirments ha. They take charitable money, they take pensions and mortgages then they leverage you to make themselves money and if they fail the taxpayer takes the bill again. It is the most artificial organised scheme that is not only operating it is one rapidly growing profession. The world is so fucking ludicrous to have any belief left in these people. They are just thieves, they know they are thieves. That's why it is run like a frat club full of drugs booze and women. It is nonsense.

      I find the funniest part of International Women's Day is that the official website for the march/protest has a form letter for women to download asking their bosses to give them a PAID DAY OFF to join the protest. Yes, they are literally ASKING PERMISSION from the evil patriarchy to protest against them because they are unwilling to assume the risk of doing so. And they expect to be PAID to do it, to boot!

      Aside from this, even if you follow their train of thought - they're campaigning for more women leaders by using the symbol of a child. A fucking child. I can't even say follow their logic, because there is none.

      Even for someone outside this loop of stupidity.. its unbelievable. Truly, pigeons on a chessboard.

      [–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 80 points81 points  (3 children)

      Dont forget that the bull was guerilla art. A handmade sculpture that took countless hours to create (by a man), then the multithousand pound art piece was secretly transported in public by a truck. At first the gov tried to take it away, but it grew on them and it stayed.

      That girl statue was made by a multimillion dollar corporation (Mcann) using automated machinery as a virtue signaling piece. So a woman didnt even have the talent, vision, or guts to put it up herself.

      Because they are only trying to appeal to emotions. The same cliche "think of the children!" strategy.

      They can't appeal to logic, because there is no logic in this retarded pandering.

      I don't see whats wrong with this. Its every girl's dream to become a famous soccer player, so they can make money and fuck bitches.

      [–]DarkRenaissance 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      What's wrong is that they're being told that they're made of iron, they are 'fighters'(that boxing girl). They're strong, independent and what not. These are all masculine qualities being imposed on feminine minds, as part of the war on masculinity. Even soccer is a contact sport, requiring toughness.

      The 'correct', red pill ad would probably be them doing feminine things like cooking, dressing up in a non slutty yet nice way, nurturing the next generation, being ready to serve the man when he needs her services. But no. How will feminism continue if the next generation isn't taught(poisoned)?

      Girls should be made of innocence and submissiveness. Now its squashed out of them and it can never come back. Nature has already given them cunning, they don't need and can't have strength.

      [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      What's wrong is that they're being told they're heroes fighting the wall street "patriarchy", when they're useful idiots serving the wall street capitalist agenda, by competing for jobs, undermining freedom of speech, etc.

      "that she will automatically be valued less than every man she meets?"

      Cognitive dissidence. Everyone knows, if only subconsciously, that females have innate value and males are disposable. Only the top 20% of males have value equal to (or greater?) than a female and the rest are invisible. Male value must be earned and demonstrated whereas female value is automatic - the exact opposite of this comercials statement. It has to do with evolution. Eggs are more valuable than sperm. Genetic variance is played out on the male DNA but not the female. Females are the bottleneck of reproduction.

      People have female bias built in. That's why the logical ridiculousness of feminism exists and our culture is gynocentric. I suspect culture always has been gynocentric, even in times when men dominated and subjugated women.

      • "Woman’s greatest ideal is a life without work or responsibility – yet who needs such a life but a child? A child with appealing eyes, a funny little body with dimples and sweet layers of baby fat and clear, taut skin that darling miniature of an adult. It is a child that woman imitates its easy laugh, it’s helplessness, its need for protection. A child must be cared for; it cannot look after itself. And what species does not, by natural instinct, look after its offspring? It must or the species will die out."

      Esther Vilar, The Manipulated Man.

      Juxtapose this with the statue erected by feminists, a child who by virtue of their successful manipulation of the narrative, sees itself as "brave". She sees herself as "brave" facing down the patriarchy (the bull) who causes her to be a victim. However she only exists by virtue of the Bull's strength and tolerance, he has handed her the ability to stare him down. Her bratty behaviour now justified in the minds of the feminists because she has gotten away with this behaviour for decades. She now decides that she was fearless when in fact she was just behaving like a naughty, spoiled child all along. And men continue to fall for it, manginas call themselves "feminists", they embrace a narrative which emasculates them. A more realistic statue would be one where the little bratty girl holds the testicles of the bull in one hand, and a family court order in the other hand. But I guess that would be a little too honest and not play to the familiar narrative.

      [–]neveragoodtime 12 points13 points  (5 children)

      So when women shave their legs and do their make up to appear as young as possible, they are not catering to a perceived male sexual fantasy, but to their own emotional fantasy of being child like, innocent, and protected. This explains so much, like how even feminists who externally hate men can't help their own internal desire to present themselves as children to be taken care of.

      [–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself 10 points11 points  (2 children)

      shave their legs

      This was actually due to successful marketing from razor companies like Gillette who wanted to get the other half of the market addicted to their products.

      They do their make up to get the approval of other women. Turns out women judge each other for how they look more than men judge them for it.

      [–]WhySoRuff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      If you have ever dated a or flirted with a woman who has a baby voice you'll notice that she ratchets up the "childish cuteness" at the most opportune times (when they want something). Many are in fact appealing to the male sexual fantasy.

        The charging bull was meant to be a symbol of the strength and power of the American people following the stock-market crash of 1987.

        This is not just true, but remembered in articles that are showing this today.

        and the little girl is standing directly in defiance to this symbol.

        The other strangeness is that while the bull is male (as are all bulls) and it is also masculine in nature .... it was never "a man's thing". it was never a "fuck you" to women. it was a statue using a industry icon to represent the American people.

        this little girl is a direct and specific "fuck you". I guess my only hope is that they will not extend it's stay .... but in reading the article I didn't hear any "spine" type of comments about how appropriate or not the statue was.

        [–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        It's really ironic since the bull and bullish markets also signify progress and growth. Putting this statue up seems to indicate feminism is defiantly stopping both...

        Noticed that as well... I guess maybe there's an argument that the bull market uncontested has lead to the economy to someplace worse... now that I think about it Elizabeth Warren probably put the statue there..

        The bull could also be seen as the usual testosterone driven boom-and-bust bullshit. Planting a voice of reason in front of that is actually smart symbolism.

        It's just not a good idea to make this "voice of reason" a little tiny girl in front of a lumbering beast. I mean....who the hell thought it's a good idea to make a symbol, where the voice of reason is weak and powerless and can only exist due to the benevolence of a powerful beast? And what kind of women wants to be representated as a bratty powerless girl in exactly that position?

        A statue of women getting in the way of men? This is their brilliant idea? Literally symbolizing women preventing economic prosperity. This is actually hilarious. It's like they swallowed the sidebar. Women, shown as a weak, stupid, obnoxiously defiant little girl, throwing their useless body in front of the engine of male power.

        The other side of this is also pretty funny. Young girls haven't even inherited the only use that women have! So their representation of women is weak, ignorant, belligerent, and sexually useless. Sounds like the average feminist.

        [–][deleted] 49 points50 points  (6 children)

        I didn't realise from your post description that they've actually positioned the stupid div right in front of it, so it looks like she's staring it down. It's so pathetic, wrong-headed and 'desperate-to-be-symbolic-and-poignant' that it makes me cringe.

        [–]GrabHerByThePEPE 20 points21 points  (5 children)

        I think the only message of defiance that sticks is that men couldn't erect a statue to masculine power anymore. As if the last statue of masculinity is now an anachronism that is being stared into submission by a little girl. Go ahead and try to erect another bull. That said, this message is only powerful in their own minds. To rational people, it's pathetic and even bullying.

        Let us see how the little girl does in the bear market.

        [–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (4 children)

        Hmmm...this tit-for-tat 'statue war' implied by your assertion is appealing to me.

        It would surely end with steel phallus-lined streets and bronze vagina's adorning every building.

        You are most likely correct though, however the bull shouldn't be taken as a slap in the face to anyone that's not masculine, if you do that then you're huffing glue.

        [–]GrabHerByThePEPE 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        The bull was always a bull, and usually also a market symbol. Bull market is prosperity. It is the feminists that attributed masculinity to it. In their typical fashion, they created an enemy out of nothing so they can be victims.

        You know, this could have been an effective campaign had they chosen to put a female matador up there instead of a helpless child.

        You can't overpower brute force with your touchy touchy feelings. A matador is swift. A matador is fearless. A matador baits the bull to charge, dodges the blow and then puts a sword deep in its thick skin that is impenetrable by words or emotions or feelings. You put a little kid against a raging bull; only thing that'll be left is people talking about how brave she was even though they would all agree what kind of a foolish act that was. Their plan wasn't to defeat the bull in the first place; it was to say that they tried their best and give themselves a pat on the back. It was to say how a raging bull took a little innocent girl's life. It was to swift the blame to the bull when the little girl herself was the cause of her own death.

        That's actually a good point now that I think about it. Regardless of people's opinions on bullfighting, matadors are badasses. Seriously, regarding of gender, it takes a lot of courage to do what matadors do.

        Imagine for a second that she isn't gutted, and that she stops the bull.

        She just stopped the bull market.

        Its times like this when the deliberately obfuscated link between feminism and communism really shines.

        [–]TRP VanguardArchwinger 39 points40 points  (4 children)

        Once again, women prove that they will stand against and defy prosperity and success for the sake of their own feelings and ideologies.

        "What do you mean a bull market is a good thing? Wall Street is a bunch of MEN who keep women down so our statue is opposing the bull statue! What do you mean Wall Street has nothing to do with misogyny? Men work there!"

        [–]TheTrenTrannyTrain 2 points3 points  (3 children)

        Feminists should change their name to Femidiots, like they don't care about money, because men will always provide.

        [–]TRP VanguardArchwinger 20 points21 points  (1 child)

        It's just stupid. The Wall Street bull isn't a symbol of Donald Trump, or a symbol of men and the patriarchy, or even a symbol of the government. It's a symbol for a bull market -- a period of success, growth, and prosperity.

        And on women's day, the women have chosen a symbol for themselves:

        A petulant, defiant child, standing in the way of success, growth, and prosperity.

        This is EXACTLY how misogynists picture women, too!

        In large companies with big HR departments, you need to give the female managers busy work or they go create trouble. This single statue and the no doubt 100s of meeting hours, no doubt prevented a spontaneous eruption of a new diversity program that would have driven the actual productive workers nuts. It was money well spent for State Street.

          [–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 31 points32 points  (2 children)

          Never forget that die-hard feminists are masculine females that resent the role nature bestowed upon them. This statue is another example of women wanting "equality" at the top levels of society without true equality which would mean on the bottom levels of society as well.

          "We want more women in board rooms!" they cry, but not more women as janitors, garbagemen, sewer workers, or any of the multitude of positions that are dirty, dangerous, disgusting. Yes, just more women in board rooms. Could you be more privileged?

          These kind of actions are invariably the kind produced by movements led by privileged white women who are already at the top of society save for those super elite positions as CEOs and company presidents. You can bet a bunch of black women didn't think to themselves "you know what we need?! a statue of a little girl staring down that damned masculine bull on wallstreet! That will show the guys!" The symbolism of this statue is such a "white girl" thing. I bet it was brainstormed over pumpkin spiced lattes from starbucks by women with degrees in English literature.

          The more women behave like bratty children the worse their lives become. Women are poorer compared to men. And children are the poorest Americans, largely because their moms are raising them alone in poverty. Women who aren't stupid don't stand in front of the bull to get gored, they make nice with the bull and ask to go for a ride.

          The #heforshe is another liberal-tastic feel-good motivational pom-pom shaking look-at-me movement that is an utter waste of time. The successful business woman doesn't need or want this bullshit to artificially raise the self-importance of low-energy walking pink tacos.

          The imagry of a defiant little girl is powerful yet we know is unrealistic. Women know they can influence a beast through female charm and feminine ways. Yet, when masculine imperative kicks in, they know they don't stand a snowflakes chance in hell. So they are allowed to express their cute, and touching images of femininity, and men look upon them the same way a parent looks at a child, "awww, ain't that cute." Ultimately, their behaviour helps seperate the men from the weak beta. So, support your woman or female colleagues if you must, but embrace the powerful bull inside you.

          [–]throw17453 18 points19 points  (3 children)

          You want to dismiss this as just a feel good, ineffectual, childish gesture. As do a lot of people posting.

          Yet at the same time this meaningless gesture is producing headlines - emphasising issues of importance to feminist aims, advancing their narrative.

          I have seen the argument here before - women only have as much power as men give / allow them. That may well be true. But right now that power is significant. Men may in theory be able in a second to turn the tide, but the reality is that is not happening. So in some ways that argument is as emotionally "feel good" and meaningless, as those that women engage in.

          The reality of today's society is in some ways that childish little girl IS ACTUALLY as powerful as the bull. It may feel good to dismiss that and undermine it, but that changes nothing, and underestimates the power and influence that feminism has - and is continuing to have - on western society.

          [–]Endorsed Contributorsqerl 3 points4 points  (2 children)

          The problem here is that you ignored my statement:

          "The successful business woman...."

          ...and continued with your narritive as though it was never said.

          This is the problem with the entire movement. It discredits itself as nothing more than a tantrum when in fact, women have contributed to advancing business, science, arts, etc. But they continue to perpetuate perceived inequalities because they're on some sort of validation seeeking emotional tirade. There are countless women recognizing the equality that does exist and do not appreciate these movements as they undermine hard working and accomplished women.

          [–]throw17453 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          I actually agreed with quite a lot of your statement - the entirety of your second paragraph, and what you say about actually successful women not needing this, and that it undermines - although I expect some of them are happy for it to be there - even if it undermines - because it can advance their success and influence.

          My post was in response to this:

          The #heforshe is another liberal-tastic feel-good motivational pom-pom shaking look-at-me movement that is an utter waste of time.

          I could have quoted to make that clearer.

          [–]Endorsed Contributorsqerl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Thanks for the clarification.

          A successful (by any measure) business woman I know, was the one that said it to me. The ones that have found success (that I know) think the movement is silly. It's not just me saying it.

          But you're right... it does generate news which means advertising dollars. I do suspect some of the effort is being inflamed for the ad revenue.

          [–]yummyluckycharms 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          China and Japan wont be in trouble at all - but for very different reasons between themselves and the west.

          China's biggest problem was too many people - the reduction in the number of women was fantastic in its ability to reduce its fertility rate, which now under control, can be allowed to grow again. Contrast this with india which did nothing to stop pop growth except to encourage emigration. The secondary issue of controlling the men who were not able to breed is being done with prostitution, foreign brides, and upping the competition amongst the males for breeding access

          Japan, does indeed have a demographic issue - not enough workers to support retirees, but also too many people for the jobs available. The japanese approach is not to give a fuck, let the neets die out, and invest heavily in automation. There is little fear of social unrest (unlike the west) due to greater social cohesion that was brought about by resisting immigration.

          Now contrast the two scenarios above with the west, which seems to have taken the worst solutions to both problems and magnified them. There is not enough jobs to supply the population, and there is not enough workers to support the retirees. What does the west do? Invest heavily in immigration!!! Not only does this not solve the job supply issue, and thus not solve the retiree issue, but it also magnifies the strain on the social security net. Moreover, the strain on the social net is occurring when immigration causes more discohesion in society. The net result is a breakdown in society.

          Finally found the answer:

          The "fearless girl" statue, by artist Kristen Visbal, will be in place for a month.

          But... I knew this was coming.

          "Love this. McCann drop a statue of a "Fearless Girl" next to Wall Street's Charging Bull. Hope it becomes permanent."

          "...it was installed after the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of the "strength and poser of the American **people"

          No mention of gender?

          "Charging Bull, then, shows an aggressive or even belligerent force on the move, but unpredictably. It's not far-fetched to say the theme is the energy, strength, and unpredictability of the stock market."

          Interesting, still no mention of gender?

          This fits perfectly into the fem-centric world. Women think they can do anything (stand in front of a charging bull), because they think it would stop in it's tracks to reconsider (as they stand opposed to all natural laws and hope they will be banished in favor of "equalism")

          They all seem to be living in a tampon commercial.

          [–]Endorsed ContributorRed_August 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          "Fearless girl" ironically exposes the naive false sense of empowerment of the Go-Girrrls. "Hear me roar" she says with her smug Patriarchy-busting pose.

          A powerful counter-point message would be to surreptitiously add the statue of a man - perhaps her dad - desperately lunging horizontally between the bull and the girl and reaching out with his arms in a vain attempt to separate, shield and protect the girl from an obviously tragic and stupid mistake. The beta male once again sacrificing his life to save the petulant go-girl from her tragically misguided bravado. To save her from her solipsistic naivety. An artful interjection to remind people of the real social cost, of the real sacrifice our civilisation commits for tolerating the rising discourse of the Feminine Imperative.

          You make your own readings into it.

          Feminists could just as easily claim it symbolises the quiet rise of feminine strength, defiant in the face of toxic masculinity, standing their ground unflinchingly.

          That it symbolises the struggle against patriarchal oppression, and the successes that women have achieved.

          Like all good poetry or art, it is symbolic yet ambiguous - and each individual ascribes their own meaning too it.

          It's overt meaning is women forcing themselves on a stereo typically male environment, and symbol of masculinity - and challenging it.

          [–]SmuggleTown 8 points9 points  (2 children)

          toxic masculinity patriarchal oppression women forcing themselves

          [–]Need2LickMuff 7 points8 points  (1 child)

          I think their point was that they could easily hamster up some pseudo-deep meaning behind the retarded statue since art is subjective and is hard to prove an interpretation as fact.

          They could even say the little girl thing is intentional because men 'make them feel useless like children, but this child is standing up to your bullshit no matter what happens'. A line of garbage, but it can still be done, and have fun arguing a subjective thing objectively.

          Lol, the bull is a good luck symbol and is supposed to represent a positive attitude toward the growth of the economy- the bull attacks by swiping its horns upward-- you WANT the bull to succeed, as opposed to the bear which represents the opposite, the attitude that the economy will decline- the bear attacks by swinging its paws downward.

          This is kind of ironic by the artist- wouldn't it be more apt to have the girl support the bull if the message is that hiring women is good for the economy? Instead she is standing in the way... If the artist adhered to wall street's symbolism of the bull you could interpret the statue in a very different way.

          [–]Butt_Man_Plumber 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Women’s day attempting to demasculinize something that wasn’t intended to symbolize masculinity at all. That bull is THE icon of THE largest financial hub in the world, for almost 150 years, and it’s meant to represent the bull markets of wall street, the rugged capitalism and ferocity of global investing, the unpredictable madness of the markets analogized perfectly in a raging bull. All of it’s now confused, castrated, and cucked by a petulant girl staring it down. Women’s day put her there specifically in defiance of this innocuous symbolism, conflating it with “toxic” masculinity, as they endlessly crusade against the phantom of patriarchy.

            This saddens me deeply.

            An image that would more accurately reflect reality would be to position the little girl astride the bull's shoulders with her same "defiant" posture, pretending to be superior to the bull and entitled to sit there.

            Did no one else notice? She (feminism) is standing opposed to the Bull statue. Not the Bear statue. The Bear represents a falling market and a deteriorating economy.

            Feminism is opposed to the gains and progress made by the modern man. Not the fall of economy. It has no constructive role in society, it is not in solidarity with struggles of men to build a better world, to create wealth, to achieve prosperity. It's opposed to those values and struggles.

            This is deeper, truer symbolism of the placement. Feminism is opposed to progress.

            Unless if it is a lion charging then she is obedient puppy.

            It's way too easy to trigger you little dudes.

            It's funny, where did you and other passing trolls see I was triggered? I wrote I loved it!

            I know you did. You love being triggered.

            Gee, I wonder which one of New York's BRAVE, FEARLESS women actually made that statue. Oh that's right, it was almost certainly a man that made it.

            A quick googling would show you it was made by a woman called Kristen Visbal.
