Things I am passionate about. Injustice, stupidity, intolerance, bigotry and small-mindedness. Oh and there might just be some humor to offset the whole thing.

Yale: Student’s Art Project Only ‘Creative Fiction’

April 17, 2008 – New York Sun

A Yale student’s bizarre art project in which she claimed to have repeatedly impregnated and induced abortions in herself is a work of “creative fiction,” the university said in a statement this afternoon.

The Yale Daily News reported this morning that Aliza Shvarts’s senior project, set to go on display next week, included video of her bleeding in her bathtub, as well as plastic sheeting layered with a mixture of Vaseline and the post-abortion blood.

“Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art,” a Yale spokeswoman, Helaine Klasky, said. “She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body.”

Ms. Klasky went on to suggest that Yale would not have permitted a project of the sort described in the student newspaper. “Had these acts been real, they would have violated basic ethical standards and raised serious mental and physical health concerns.”

Creative fiction my ass. And could someone explain to this mendacious, and obviously liberal bitch, that there is no ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body – what the fuck are you trying to say Ms. Shvarts? That you don’t know whether you’re a woman or not? It’s stupidity like yours that makes the sane people go postal. Just thank your lucky stars that you live in America – anywhere else and I’m not sure they’d put up with your shit.

Yale University – way to go – are you sure this class is accredited? Is Ms. Shvarts documented? Are the rest of your professorial, anti-American, liberal nincompoops as idiotic as your ‘arts’ department. Oh, yeah – isn’t Yale where the BJC and HRC went to school and were taught by Marxist and Socialist Professors – does the name Saul Alinsky ring a bell. You people absolutely disgust me.

    liberal bitch a term I’ve heard all too often spewed by guys who heard the word no from a girl wearing a short skirt at NYU.

    On the other hand, the art project meant to “draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body” is total bullshit, and she is probably documented.

    I sent an article on this exhibit to my mother the other day, she is a painter and a got her masters at RISD. She wrote back that she cried until she cried.

    Yale could decide if it was a performance piece, creative fiction or art…they are just trying to title it with something that will make it seem less horridly offensive and absurd.

  2. cooper – Nice to her from you. Regarding my calling her a liberal bitch – well, I call ’em as I see ’em.
    Yale’s just doing the CYA – what a bunch of hyprocrites.
    Ta.
