    are you blind to what it says?"

    I read the link, so no need to quote it to me.  I am also under no obligation to agree with what the article says.  And just because I don't agree with someone's opinion, doesn't mean I'm either blind or intellectually dishonest.  

    For example, My opinion is that Sojourner Truth's place setting is not depicted as a vagina could simply have meant Ms. Chicago made a choice not to do so with a woman of color because she knew that women of color have historically been reduced to nothing more than their sexuality and reproductive value, even more so than European women.

    As far as the universal female existence, one, I'm not sure the work presents itself as that, and, two, there are some nearly universal aspects to women's experience across time and cultures.  One being what started this discussion -- anonymity and the devaluing of female accomplishments and contributions.  

    Intellectually honest enough to meet your standards, now?

    This is all part of the discussion of a work of art, what is means, what its flaws are, its context in the era it was produced, etc.  No need to get so testy.  Sheesh.
