Boy, do I feel stupid! In my article earlier this week, I got confused and thought that the ?Guerilla Girls? were the same as the ?Guerilla Girls on Tour.? I suppose that was because I read the following on the university website:
Perhaps you should contact the university and get them to change their website in order to avoid further confusion. They don?t seem to know the difference between the two groups either.
Nonetheless, I am terribly sorry for the confusion. I should not have characterized you as a bunch (no pun intended) of feminists who like to dress as apes, throw bananas at the audience, campaign against President Bush, and hang up ?terror alert system? posters. Here?s how I should have characterized you:
The Guerilla Girls on Tour are a bunch of feminists who like to dress as apes, throw bananas at the audience, campaign against President Bush, and hang posters showing Condoleezza Rice standing in a cage holding bananas along with President Bush, Vice-President Cheney, and Secretary Rumsfeld.
I am truly sorry for the confusion. I also have a few questions before I go.
1. Would you consider your ?Vacancy? poster to be part of a campaign against President Bush?
2. Do you think that some people may see the image of Condy Rice in a cage holding bananas as racist?
3. Do you think that if a bunch of fraternity boys dressed and acted like the ?Guerilla Girls on Tour? they would be labeled as racially insensitive?
4. Do you know how to use a spell checker?
That?s all for now. I have to split. Pun intended.
