Over Memorial Day weekend, feminists began spewing green vomit while their heads spun in 360-degree circles over a statue at University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, which shows a college boy having a friendly conversation with a college girl.

The bronze statue, titled "Classmates," depicts a college girl comfortably relaxing back while she engages in chit-chat with a college boy. The problem for feminists: He has his foot mounted on the bench, which apparently constitutes "mansplaining" — a pejorative to describe men condescendingly explaining to women.

The statue originally drew the ire of Ash Hernandez, 34, while on her way to take a teacher's certification test. It angered her so much that she immediately ran back to her car to grab her phone so she could snap a photo.

"The sculpture just screamed mansplaining," Hernandez said in an email to Women in the World.

She then immediately texted the photo to several people, which prompted her friend Cathy de la Cruz to share it on Twitter. Tweet below:

The tweet has since gone viral and has drawn the attention of New York Times affiliate Women in the World, Bustle, HuffPost Women, and Washington Examiner.

Seventy-nine-year-old Paul Tadlock, the poor artist who sculpted the photo, has since taken time out of his already-dwindling lifespan to "artsplain" to these psychotic feminists he intended the sculpture to depict exactly what it represented: two college kids enjoying a conversation. Tadlock even modeled the girl after his own daughter.

"It was two students visiting, talking … implying nothing beyond that," said Tadlock. "That [sculpture] was [done] in the early 1990s when my daughter was a student at the University of the Incarnate Word. In fact, that's her. I sculpted her."

However, as is true of all totalitarian feminists, intent or context doesn't matter in this case, and they have chosen to see in the statue some broader implication of female oppression by a dominant patriarchy.

"The implied dynamics between these two figures are pretty clear," wrote the pagans over at Bustle, "and pretty reinforcing of conventional, outdated, sexist gender role stereotypes: The woman, small and cross legged, is lorded over by the man who, spread-legged, is quite literally thrusting his manhood, along with all his important opinions, in her face."

University of the Incarnate Word has since defended the statue, denying it had any sexist undertones.

"The statue has long symbolized the friendship and camaraderie that develops among students as they attend UIW," school spokesman Carl Myers told WITW. "We are deeply saddened that this image of friendship has been misconstrued as a symbol of sexism on social media. Nothing could be further from the truth."
