Which of the following do you find more troubling north Brooklyn park patrons?
1. A man sleeping in an idling car and homeless encampment replete with a cafe umbrella:
2. Or this.
Well, apparently if you are the New York City Parks Department (or perhaps a concerned parks-goer) the answer is #2 (a word).
The Vagina Tree
So I glad I knew you in your fullest state <3
Observation: If vaginas did not serve some positive, pleasing function the person(s) responsible for obliterating it from the previously depicted plaque would not be around in the first place. Regardless, I find it fascinating— especially in light of the manifold number of “issues” with our parks*— that this person thought a mere word merited such attention/censorship. Just a thought.
*Lack of general maintenance/upkeep. Hence why I embarked upon the “No Toilet Left Behind Project” and why there is a Vagina “stump” gracing said park in the first place. The powers-that-be have neither the will nor the wherewithal to replace the previous or remove the latter. This would require concepts such as “planning” and WORK.
