Feminists upset over statue of man and woman talking

Scene: You're a woman, sitting on a bench reading a book. Your male friend sees you on the quad and comes over to say hello and talk. You put down your book, lean back against the bench and smile. He doesn't sit next to you; instead, he puts his foot on the bench and leans over his knee.

So sexist, right?

That scene is depicted in a statue at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, and despite no sign of distress or physical assertion, some women have decided it is a statue of "mansplaining" — a term used to describe men condescendingly explaining something to a woman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary is counting on the "Vagina Vote" (her campaign's own term for it, so stop the hate emails) to win next year, and is trying to revive the militant male-bash feminism of the 1990s to push it through. But voters of my age remember how there never really was a rape crisis, and that women are not the helpless victims the feminists made them out to be (in the name of empowerment), so something new was needed. The good news; the opening salvo in Hillary's feminist gambit just looks plain silly!
