The Corcoran School of the Arts of Design at the George Washington University is proud to partner with For Freedoms to present:
We Hold These Truths to be Self Evident
By ZoŽ Buckman and Natalie Gwen Frank
*Please be advised, language on the tombstone may be triggering for sexual assault survivors. Viewer discretion is advised.
Read Corcoran's statement and more about this work here: https://corcoran.gwu.edu/letter-director-we-hold-these-truths-be-self-evident This piece was originally created in response to the comments made about women during the 2016 election season. We Hold These Truths to be Self Evident features statements by former and current male politicians about women and their bodies to expose how political figures from across the political spectrum degrade and demean women. The work is intended to make people think about the implications of a culture where political figures use and condone such language.
This tombstone installation is part of the 50 States Initiative and was made possible by For Freedoms.
The 50 State Initiative is a non-partisan, nationwide campaign to use art as a means of inspiring broad civic participation. Along the way, they aim to build a network of artists, arts institutions and civic leaders and to map and connect the cultural and artistic infrastructure in the United States.
FOR FREEDOMS is a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists. Founded in January 2016, For Freedoms strives to model how art and discourse can urge communities into greater civic action and participation. Their mission is to blur the line between artistic and political discourse, to increase civic engagement, and to encourage open, nuanced dialogue in a partisan climate. They are a network for artists and arts institutions to become more engaged with the current political system in the United States. Visit forfreedoms.org for more information.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

TRUTHS_181108_047.JPG: Some girls, they rape so easy.
The facts show that people who are raped -- who are truly raped -- the juices don't flow... they don't get pregnant.
If babies had guns, they wouldn't be aborted.
The don't call me tyrannosaurus sex for nothing.
I did not have sexual relations with that woman.
TRUTHS_181108_050.JPG: [Rape victims] should make the best of a bad situation.
Moral of story: Women in military, bad idea.
If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?
You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.
Rape is kinda like the weather. If it's inevitable, just relax and enjoy it.
If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.
[Women on welfare] should be able to get their lives together and find a husband.
TRUTHS_181108_059.JPG: I should hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her... was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape?
We had terrorist [sic] in the Texas state senate.
I'd like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a surgical procedure.
I get a migraine headache if I don't get a strange piece of ass every day.
These Planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness -- to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.
You've created an incentive for people... to sell that fetal tissue.
Planned Parenthood isn't purely a "healthcare provider" any more than a heroin dealer is a community pharmacist.
Move over. This is your president.
TRUTHS_181108_068.JPG: I move on her like a bitch... and when you're a star they let you do it... grab 'em by the pussy...
If they're a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to think that they could feel pain?
Moral of story: Women in military, bad idea.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
