“Females carry the marks, language and nuances of their culture more than the male. Anything that is desired or despised is always placed on the female body.”

Do you agree with the above statement by artist Wangechi Mutu

Do men also carry marks that are also despised and desired by society?

  1. I think men are also carriers of these marks but perhaps the history of objectification of women makes it easier for us to become symbols of whatever is being projected, desire/despise etc.

    • Thanks for your comment. I agree with what you said. Specific to your experience in the Caribbean, what symbols of desire etc. do you see women representing in your culture?
