The “Fearless Girl” statue has been set up by a company in front of Wall Street’s The Charging Bull to call the attention of gender discrimination. Days after, a man stripped away its symbolism.
The pornographic act was caught by Alexis Kaloyanides. She said in a post that the man acted to have sex with the statue while his friends are amusingly watching.
This is just further perpetuating a mentality of ‘boys will be boys,’ and that ‘it’s okay, it’s a joke, just brush it off… This young man likely has a mother, a sister perhaps, a girlfriend, a wife ― who knows? I’m getting tired of making excuses… I for one am not gonna laugh it off anymore. Douchebags like this are why we need feminism.
