In bemidji mn there is a statue with a anatomically correct vagina with all the bells and whistles and its in plain view of all no big deal. So I don't see why it should be different in Arizona since ya all come here to vacation anyways. If it was a ancient roman statue I bet it would be ok

artistic expression?
Freedom of expression?
Freedom of speech?

Don't like it don't look. Especially on a mans private land city or not.

I live in Paulden and have no problems with the statue. I'm not sure why anyone would.

Do you live next to it? If it's not offensive, why doesn't all the news stations and photographers show the 'full monty'? It's all good.. until somethin as ugly as that is in YOUR neighborhood.

No I don't live next to it and if I did I wouldn't say a thing about it. It's art and I've never considered art to be offensive.
