Florida parents go after Michelangelo's "David", oust principal over art class

A Florida charter school principal has been ousted after multiple parents complained that their sixth graders were made to view pornography—because they looked at Michelangelo’s iconic statue of David.

The statue was shown during a sixth grade art history lesson at Tallahassee Classical School, the Tallahassee Democrat first reported. One of the most famous pieces of artwork in the world, the statue shows a chiseled, naked man posing. But while most of the world sees it as art, some parents deemed it “pornographic” and said it “upset” their children.

After a day or two, I was asked to take it home because the boys were always flipping to the picture of the Statue of David and causing a commotion. The teacher apologized to me being that some people couldn’t appreciate art.

Having read the interview it seems that the art teacher who teaches this usually shows this picture tells the principal, and a letter gets sent out to the parents for approval. The art teacher asked the principal this year, and the principal simply did not do it. And somewhere along the line either the principal or the teacher said, “don’t tell your parents.”

So there is more nuance than what is being reported. I disagree with the decision and the school board president is a troll and a dolt, but I could very easily see this being on the opposite end of the spectrum, in fact this is frequently an issue with minority students being offended when something from Mark Twain is taught.

Imagine starting a school ostensibly on the basis of “preserving the fruits of Western Civilization” or whatever and then acting like this about the art of the High Renaissance.

These schools aren’t about rigorous classical learning, they simply exist so that a bunch of goony rightwing GenXers and elder millennials in the sunbelt can make their children’s education an exercise in dumb flexing about how they (by virtue of being rightwing and having spawned) are the most important people in the world and are always right no matter what.

[quote] “I feel like having casual sex is a sign of being cool and desirable for Millennials and Gen X, [but] my Gen Z peers value it much less,” says Jo, a 23-year-old civil engineer living in Colorado. “The idea that casual sex could be purely enjoyable is pretty foreign to most people my age, I think — we see it as objectifying, pointless and not worth the effort.”

[quote] Now, Katie and her friends are cynical about some of the progressive messages they had received about sex when they were younger. “We all really embraced third-wave feminism and sex positivity, and it impacted us so negatively,” “It’s seen as potentially shallow, a repackaging of the patriarchy, and not in the best interests of women, especially young women"

[quote] 24-year-old Kero* from London tells me that she chose to step away from sex three years ago due to low self-esteem. “I just wasn’t confident enough to put myself out there or connect with anyone,” she explains. More recently, she's considered having sex again – but only under certain conditions. “I’ve grown from my past insecurities and those sentiments have sort of matured into, ‘I only want to be with a man who has earned my trust, who worships the ground I walk on’”

[quote] “I think of sex positivity as a little corny and naive for our time,” said Jo “I get that it was necessary and a response to repression — and I found it super helpful as I was unlearning anti-sex religious attitudes I was raised around, especially as a bi teenager — but it feels somewhat passé now.”


[quote] “[Gen Z] thinks of older generations as sexually regressive and predatory,” Luna says. “There's a big fear of predators and pedophiles [and] a lot of very, very contentious debate about what behaviors, relationships and desires constitute pedophilia and predation.”


[quote] Young puriteens have recently been seen on social media moralizing about age gaps in adult relationships and partaking in the perennial “No Kink at Pride” debate. “Hearing Gen Z talking about not wanting to see kink at Pride is giving Karen vibes,” tweeted 35-year-old RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bob the Drag Queen last month, and “aging internet twink” @notn1co birthed a meme about Gen Z being such hysterical killjoys they’d call the cops upon seeing a jockstrap.


[quote] That became especially clear earlier this month with the ongoing debate over kink at Pride, an exhausting and well-worn discussion that has dominated some corners of the internet. Those who take the anti-kink at Pride side argue that kinksters should not be allowed because minors, as well as adults who are uncomfortable with such public displays of sexuality, can’t provide their consent to things like seeing a guy on a leash licking an Earl Grey-flavored cone outside of an artisanal ice cream shop. Those in the other camp argue that kink is deeply rooted in the history of LGBTQ liberation and Pride itself, that there is nothing inherently sexualized or disturbing about a man in BDSM gear and the onus should be on parents to explain such things to children or steer them toward more overtly family-friendly Pride events; and also, who the fuck cares.

[quote] This discourse is not entirely organic: much of it is pushed by far-right bad actors attempting to promote homophobic talking points. It’s also not new, like, at all. “There’s always been discussion of how family-friendly the Pride parade [should be], or when I was a little baby gay, whether drag queens should be on floats, and if we were ‘flaunting’ our sexuality,” millennial author and activist Leo Herrera told me. “It tends to come from the more corporate conservative side who is really concerned we are presenting stereotypes or that we won’t be accepted or it’ll cost us funding or press. It’s the same conversation repackaged.”

One of the outcomes of authoritarianism is that an authoritarian system strips the society under its grip, from all artistic, cultural pursuits and artistic freedom.

Eventually, the world becomes an austere place, where paintings, sculptures, music, dramatic arts, dance, architecture and design, are no longer available for the common folk to enjoy.

However, not so for the very wealthy/elite. While the authoritarian condemns such whimsy, they themselves, enjoy these pursuits to the fullest

The uneducated, uncultured people in such a society support this, as they have zero clue why the particular sculpture of David, is pretty fucking miraculous.

If your grade schooler doesn’t know that men have a penis, then there’s oh so much more, to be concerned about.

Also, aren’t these people vehemently anti trans? Wouldn’t they logically celebrate a sculpture, such as this, which depicts what they consider to be their binary definition of what makes a man, versus what makes a woman?

It’s such a shame that now the dumbest of our dumb, think they actually have something important to say.

This is analogous to when the Taliban took over Afghanistan and blew up all of those Buddha statues that were thousands of years old. Destroy the history so the oppressed people have no memory or identity.

Republicans are evil fascist scum. Do not even entertain the idea of voting for them, ever.

I'm reminded of the final shot in Cabaret.

Wonder if they'll go after the bronze casting at Sarasota's Ringling Museum?

I doubt little Jaxxon and Kayleigh were bothered at all. Do these adults not remember showing their privates to each other when they were little?

R65 ABSOLUTELY NOT. Calling them that makes them sound foreign. These are homegrown American fascist terrorists and they deserve to be reminded of that.

R25 well believe that when we see the GOP out of power in FL. Until then, that is FL.

In real life the model for David most likely had a bigger dick than what was sculpted. It was expected for artists to portray penises of a smaller size during the Renaissance and some other classic eras. Tell those Floridians to make a visit further back in time to Pompeii to see the schlongs frescoedon their walls if they really want to start banning Dick pics…huge and cartoonish….

Yes, R125. I read on another thread that the small penis was meant to emphasize that this is fine art and not pornography.

trump dressed in a red/white/blue costumed super hero hulk....or jeezus-like, with the halo and cross, is the only art our children need to see.

And yet, as Philomena Cunk accurately points out, Michelangelo's David does not in fact have an anus.

It says more about the parents than the teacher. They’re the ones who’ve sexualised the statue.

It's ridiculous that sculptors made them all tops. They should have made at least a few with a blown out hole.

That would be "The Statue of Davida."

Rick Scott needs to keep his ex DeSantis on a shorter leash or his plans to become dictator will never ripen.

I'll bet Rick Scott is actually the bossy bottom of that relationship.

Does batboy even HAVE a dick? Or is Dick Rott just a giant penis in his own right?
