How To Completely Abandon All Rational Discourse.

17 Apr

Step One: Take a serious and difficult subject like abortion.

Step Two: Rename it “planned miscarriage”

Step Three: Spend 9 months planning miscarriages over and over again with sperm donors.

Step Four: Say it is art

Step Five: Claim you don’t want to shock people

Step Six: Watch in feigned horror as people don’t get your art.

Welcome to the world of Aliza Shvarts, class of ’08, who in six simple steps actually managed to fuck us all over.  Look, I don’t know if you, semi-gentle reader, are pro choice or anti choice (I’m pro, but that is not the point) but I think we can all agree that a woman who uses her uterus as a paint mixing studio and who thinks that displaying that “paint” is a way to get intelligent discourse has found the crossroads of self-indulgence and self-righteous and built herself a Temple of Entitlement.  This is not about “What Is Art.”  Hell, I even think the douche who starved a dog had a point, he just made it in a stupid way.  This chick is just out of her mind and without a studio she’s Britney Spears level certifiable.  She denigrates the arguments, she makes any rational discussion impossble and she hides behind “art” because her narcissism lets her do it.

Anyone willing to step up and debate morals and law gets my undying respect.  I may not agree with your politics, but showing up to the arena with intelligence and reverence counts for a lot.  This falls under none of these categories. Its like calling the asshole who streaks the football field a linebacker.  Just cause he runs across the field doesn’t make him a player.

Go home, child.  Read a book, think about what you’ve done and come back when you aren’t an asshole.

    Its about art’s relationship to the human body or some such crapola.
    She is a terrible youthful person who has done serious damage to rational discourse and who should not get her degree. Yale has officially jumped the shark if she gets credit for this idiocy.

    MR: That hoax is a hoax:
    Shvarts stood by her project, calling the University’s statement “ultimately inaccurate.”…But Shvarts reiterated Thursday that she repeatedly used a needleless syringe to insert semen into herself. At the end of her menstrual cycle, she took abortifacient herbs to induce bleeding, she said. She said she does not know whether or not she was ever pregnant. “No one can say with 100-percent certainty that anything in the piece did or did not happen,” Shvarts said, “because the nature of the piece is that it did not consist of certainties.”
