Tax Dollars at Work: Statue of Bare-Breasted Woman Sexting Causes Uproar in Kansas City (Video)

Kansas City residents were outraged after a statue of a bare-breasted woman sexting was erected in an Overland Park Arboretum.

Local residents are upset that the statue was placed in a public park in sight of children and families.
Joe Miller reported:

A bronze statue of a young topless woman who appears to be taking a sexting-style picture of herself has caused outrage in a Kansas City Park.

The bare breasted, headless female figure in Overland Park Arboretum is pointing a camera at herself and the American Family Association of Kansas and Missouri has said that it is obscene and promotes sexting in a venue where families take children.

This week the group collected 4,700 signatures, 1,000 more than is needed to compel a judge in Johnson County to convene a grand jury to investigate whether the work ‘Accept and Reject’ by Chinese sculptor Yu Chang is unacceptable.

In June, local resident and mother Joanne Hughes started a campaign to have the statue removed out of the sight of children and was joined in her efforts by the conservative American Family Asssociation soon after.
