Why do people have a problem with this statue and not all those naked nymphs in the fountain on the Plaza? Actually there's several statues of naked women on the Plaza and all over KC's core.

And I still don't understand the "sexting" claim -- if she were sexting wouldn't she be taking a picture of herself with, I don't know, a phone and not a point and shoot camera?

Can't really compare Joco soccer moms to... any sane person.

I was thinking of the Pomona the Apple Goddess statue by Donatello Gabrielli that sits at Ward Parkway and Broadway/Wornall. It's one of the nicest sculptures in the City and anybody finding it to be in some way obscene or harmful is missing the point entirely. Getting all jazzed up about bronze castings and the like is pretty ridiculous.

I pity your children to have to grow up in such a close-minded environment. It is not inappropriate or even close to it.

Do you block your children's eyes when you pass all the fountains around town that feature naked people? Have you ever taken your children to a museum? Have your children seen your naked body?
