Dissuade Petitioners of "Sleepwalker" Statue from Participating in Future Slut Walks!

As an average citizen of this great nation, The United States of America, we value our freedom of speech and expression above all other liberties. So when certain ideologues, advocates, and special interest groups engage in the practice of "freedom for me, but not for thee because... my feelings" we tend to get a little fed up.

We are quite certain that most of your students who equate a semi-conscious, scantily clad, caucasian male statue with sexual assault, have also supported (or even participated in) past Slut Walks.

We urge you to lecture your students in that if they feel that it's just fine and dandy for thousands of Feminists to march around publicly, en masse and in their underwear (or even less in some cases,) without a care or concern for children watching, those who are offended by indecent exposure, those who disagree with their gender and sexual platitudes, platforms, or tactics, or those simply aggravated with gynocentric demonstrations and manbashing in general, then they should have the decency to allow an artist to publicly display a work of art than can neither rape, nor depicts any form of sexual assault.

We also encourage you to lecture those particular students in recognizing the difference between delusion and reality; Just because one associates an image of a man suffering from somnambulism with sexual predation doesn't make it true. Thus, it is the responsibility of the deluded student, not the artist, to reform it's behavior and reaction.

Finally, remind these students that they are grown, educated women who are preparing for future leadership roles in society. If they lack the fortitude and stoicism to observe potentially offensive images and words (illusory or otherwise) then the world outside of their insular campus community will chew them up and spit them out without a shred of sympathy. If Malala Yousafzai could withstand a bullet to the face in defiance of sexism, then they should be able to handle a work of art that has nothing to do with gender politics (other than from their own doing.)
