If I was to make a sculpture of a half naked, bleeding woman, nailed to a cross and distributing a few millions of copies, would people display this BDSM symbol?

What sickens me is the movie "The Passion" and how Christians flocked to the theaters to see this, PLUS dragging their very small children. The same Christians would probably be appalled if someone brought their small child to a NC17 movie.

I confess I've offended enough Christians in my time by referring to the "death cult symbol" hanging around their necks. They hate that sort of brutal frankness.

Fuck them!

@zesty fucking is too good for them.

You'd have to create a really wild backstory to go with it, and then threaten anyone who doesn't go along with your plan.

Just make sure you put the nails holding her up behind the wrist and not though the palm. otherwise it will rip out and she would fall off. the problem with the stigmata craze. wrong location.

The crucified Jebus image is tasteless and manipulative to begin with. To take the same image but make the victim female is much more disturbing to my way of thinking for no other reason than it would depict the same violence but against a woman.

Is that sexist?

I said no, because it would be a case of being caught with one's hand inside the cookie jar....we're very circumspect about our hatred of women and wish to keep it under wraps.

Or at least in our pants.

Could be a market for necklaces. Example:

Not without a story behind th symbolism .

No, obviously. Because women are inferior. And a woman dressed as such would be a harlot, and nobody in their right mind would want to see that!
But, a half-dressed man with rippling muscles, whose cloth is dangerously close to revealing his nether regions? Bring it on! 😂😂😂

Oh, yessss

How is that a BDSM symbol?

That was my question. I think that a naked women on a cross would automatically be sexualized , there is that, but the question kinda implies that it's "obvious" a woman on a cross is specifically about kinky sex/ BDSM. Whatever, how symbols are seen says an awful lot about the person doing the seeing. How the heck xtianity got to be about pictures of some Italian dude on a cross, plus symbols like trees, bunnies, fish, and really fancy buildings, is ??????

@MarkiusMahamius The "how the heck?" is easy. The early christians ripped off everything people knew from paganism, and every other belief system of the time. They were consensus building.
As for the woman on the cross being sexualized, there is nothing "obvious" about that.
I just see it as being violent.

@KKGator Christianity is violent !

In BDSM the more common cross for play is like an "X", not a Christian one.

@KKGator The difference between abuse and BDSM is consent.

It reinforces the whole Christian mentality. By attacking their religion you give it power.
Besides, there are enough actual, real women out there bleeding from domestic violence, rape, murder, and other brutal acts, that it's almost a crime in and of itself to be making light of it as a symbol of extreme sex play.

Don't see how it reinforces the religious mentality. This just makes fun of it.

I think Robert Mapplethorpe already did it

That would be BAIT to more Muslims with guns/bombs and invectives!

Cool!

"would people displaying"?

Maybe you want to clean that question up. I'm not sure if you're asking if people would see it as a BDSM symbol or whether they would display it as one, or maybe I'm missing your point entirely.

But regardless, if you distribute a few million copies of anything, it will be seen as having little value. Supply and demand.

Besides, on the demand side of things, on no day in the past year have I awakened and thought, "You know, what I really want is my very own copy of a sculpture of a half naked bleeding woman nailed to a cross. It would really make my life complete." And I suspect this is true of just about everyone on the planet.

They may even build temples and monuments to it; perhaps gather together on a certain day of the week as a result..... Lol!

Starting a new religion? Maybe say you were inspired by the Flying Spaghetti Monster. a sub-cult?

Inspired by the Greater Dildo !

Maybe not but there a few groups here that would love it 🙂 "Body Positive, Real Life Sexy!" for instance

Religious symbolism

No

Is this really a BDSM symbol? Am skeptical🙂

Oh no. Religious!

There is a BDSM symbol. It is similar to the yin/yang one but has 3 sections and would not offend.

I wanted to offend@)!

Well, I wouldn't. However, you may have the marketing skills to make a buck with it, so don't let my opinion stop you. 🤓

It was just a silly question. Lol

@zesty I dunno, the more I think about it, there might be a huge demand for this sort of thing. The people who get surgery to add horns to their foreheads come to mind. Not sure how many of them there are, but this might be just the thing for them. They've already been talked into a bad idea, so you don't even have to warm them up. Heh.
