UC Davis Transgender Student Plants 100 Fake Penises in Campus Garden for Art Class Project

UC Davis Transgender Student Plants 100 Fake Penises in Campus Garden for Art Class Project

“I am a transgender male and I experience gender dysphoria. But no one has ever asked me where I experience it.”

Where is Sigmund Freud when you need him?

The College Fix reports:

UC Davis transgender student plops plastic penises in a garden, calls it ‘art’

For one of his fall semester courses, a transgender student at the University of California Davis “planted” a bunch of plastic penises in the dirt near the campus library … to highlight what life is like for trans students.

Kaiden Zaldumbide’s assignment for the course ART 151 was to “make 100 copies of an object,” according The Aggie. His original plan was to copy images of a tampon to symbolize how so-called “tampon taxes” result in gender inequality.

However, a packet he got from the campus LGBTQIA Resource Center gave him a better idea: “I was like, ‘I wanna do 100 d-cks!’”

Zaldumbide’s, er, piece was titled “My Vagina” and featured the statement: “I am a transgender male and I experience gender dysphoria. But no one has ever asked me where I experience it.”

The sophomore said, “Let me turn the prime symbol of masculinity and turn it into something viewed typically as gender neutral or a more feminine sense.”

From the story:

“That is kind of what I wanted to do, I just wanted to tell my story and to show people an insight on what it is like to be transgender,” he continued. “One, it is a very unique experience, and two, it is a very hard experience to try and understand and empathize with. [Being transgender] is completely foreign to cis[gender] people. I want to share who I am and the way I have grown up. How it is sort of isolating to feel like gender norms were pushing me to feel a certain way and me not realizing that it is okay to feel different and otherwise.” …

That’s so edgy!

Is that what Kaiden Zaldumbide is trying to say:
cut off the male member and display it in dirt?

“But no one has ever asked me where I experience it.” I would expect that this person experiences its “gender dysphoria” everywhere it goes. Is “gender dysphoria” somehow dependent on location? Such as, it doesn’t experience gender dysphoria when dining at Carl’s Jr?

Are these fake penises planted such that they are pointing out as if they are growing, being nourished by Mother Earth, or are they planted as if they are penetrating/raping Mother Earth? There could be so much in the symbolism!

Keep in mind that “dumb” is part of its name.

That surely wouldn’t have anything to do with this……

“… 20% of colleges and universities will shut down or merge in the next 10 years, and probably more….”

But no one has ever asked me where I experience it

Yet he doesn’t say why I should ask, or why I should care.

I can never tell. Does this “guy” have a penis or vagina? The “he” means what?

    I think he aspires to have a feminine penis. Whether or not ‘he’ actually has one- well, if he says he does then he does, OK? Even if ‘he’ actually doesn’t.
