A poster pointed out that he don't find it appealing to watch someone giving birth. I don't either.

I pointed out that there are actually men who find it appealing.

Availableusername, you seem very upset.

Probably because of "Apple" products. Only real hipsters have nothing but apple products, I think it part of getting the the hipster club...

Hahahaha wut? I made 4 comments on this thread, all very even-keeled and level headed. Where you are pulling that out of is anyone's guess.

But for what it's worth, I pointed out your comment because it is of my opinion that this broad showing her public birth is not an art form. Which is what the basis of the thread is. So I'm gonna question what you said if that is of my opinion. And I think any sane person will agree with me.

Brooklyn performance artist to give birth before audience in gallery - m.NYPOST.com
How is she a pig? How is this any different then watching a documentary about childbirth? Only now more people have the option of sharing the experience. Move to Alabama or something.

This is a very interesting art form she is pursuing. Documenting life experiences.

the only way giving birth would ever be considered performance art is if the baby comes out, moonwalks to mozart playing billie jean as vincent van gogh paints the whole scene...

Someone once said that human beings are always coming up with unique phrasings--things that have never before in human history been said. You may have just put yourself on that distinguished list, by referring to childbirth as an 'art form.'
