gauguin Lady Gets Mad at Painting That Seems Gay, Attacks ItThere is nothing more infuriating than Post-Impressionistic Tahitian Might-Be-Lesbians:

A painting at the Gauguin exhibit at the National Gallery was attacked last week by a gallery visitor, provoking considerable commotion, according to other museum visitors and gallery officials.

Screaming “This is evil,” a woman tried to pull Gauguin’s “Two Tahitian Women” from a gallery wall Friday and banged on the picture’s clear plastic covering, said Pamela Degotardi of New York, who was there.

“She was really pounding it with her fists,” Degotardi said. “It was like this weird surreal scene that one doesn’t expect at the National Gallery.”

In the painting, both breasts of one woman are exposed, as is one of the second woman’s breasts.

If John Ashcroft was still around, those ladies would be wearing hoodies of some sort by now.

Anyway, we say a lot of things about anti-gay wingnuts, but we have never, to my knowledge, accused them of being stable.
