The lame ‘fearless girl’ bronze statue that was placed opposite the ‘Charging Bull’ of Wall Street instantly changed the ‘meaning’ of the Bull itself, which outraged the Bull’s sculptor.
In “Girl Against Bull”, Irmin Vinson notes:
Like many feminist creations, Fearless Girl is parasitical. She requires the antecedent creation of the bronze bull and derives her meaning from being physically positioned near it.
Each year, more Confederate statues are torn down, and more ‘fearless girl’ statues are put up.
