R.I.P. Paw-Paw & The Rabbit Suicides




Jesus! Just when I got the pregnant man out of my nightmares along comes this Yale “artist” Have you heard this one?

ALIZA SHVARTS, a senior art major at Yale, artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages for her senior art project.

Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process....

The display of Aliza Shvarts' project will feature a large cube suspended from the ceiling of a room in the gallery of Green Hall. Shvarts will wrap hundreds of feet of plastic sheeting around this cube; lined between layers of the sheeting will be the blood from Shvarts' self-induced miscarriages mixed with Vaseline in order to prevent the blood from drying and to extend the blood throughout the plastic sheeting.

Aliza Shvarts will then project recorded videos onto the four sides of the cube. These videos, captured on a VHS camcorder, will show her experiencing miscarriages in her bathrooom tub, she said. Similar videos will be projected onto the walls of the room.


HOWEVER, The New York Sun reports that Aliza Shvarts' artificial insemination and miscarriage art project is just "creative fiction." Yale University released a statement this afternoon:
"Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art," a Yale spokeswoman, Helaine Klasky, said. "She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman's body."

Ms. Klasky went on to suggest that Yale would not have permitted a project of the sort described in the student newspaper. "Had these acts been real, they would have violated basic ethical standards and raised serious mental and physical health concerns."

But wait…now Shvarts is denying the denial!

Geez, her parents must be so proud! this si such a fuc**** FREAK SHOW! The "rabbit didn't die"...IT KILLED HIMSELF!


MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES TO MARTHA STEWART on the loss of her beloved Chow,
Paw Paw. You know, Martha was the real inspiration behind TheGayGardener. I wanted to come up with something to keep the world moving along at a “pretty clip” while Martha was in the slammer. And friends had often referred to me as the gay Martha Stewart (!)
Dearest Martha I know exactly how you feel. My Sam was also 13 like your Paw Paw when I had to let him go. And his animal companion kept a little vigil just like your Francesca & Sharkey. I guess where we do part company is I couldn’t come up with a lovely hand-embroidered & ribboned “shroud” like you did for your dog. Damn it Martha! Even in “pet-death” you really make a person feel inadequate! Love ya anyway!
