The snow penis is widely regarded as a classic form of artistic expression during the winter months of college — the Mona Lisa of snow-centric college student artwork, if you will. However, a hall director at the University of Michigan felt otherwise. This fun killing asshole decided that he was too mature to succumb to such a level of crude humor, and reported the sculpture as a “Bias Incident.” A bias incident, according to the university, is an “incident that makes people feel targeted because of their social identity group membership.” It may even be some sort of symbolic gesture, they said.
From the Michigan Review:
It is also possible that the white penis was targeted symbolically, as the university was unable to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos’ visit to the school the evening before. Either way, the snowy creation was deemed something that needed to be taken “very seriously” by the university community.
Damn those white snow penises. It’s not their fault that snow is white and nothing else! Kinda racist of the weather to do that, if you ask me. Still ridiculous that someone, much less a hall director, would take extreme offense to a dumb, funny joke.
Would it have helped if the sculptor erected a giant snow vagina next to the proud standing male genitalia? Either way, the University of Michigan seems to have its head on straight, having decided not to do anything about it due to the fact that no one, other than the hall director, has come forward and said that they’ve actually taken offense to this beautiful piece of art. How about that — college students being able to handle something that is totally harmless and funny and not take to the streets in protest. Now that’s something you don’t see every day..
