San Antonio, Texas: Mansplaining Statue

Obscure 2006 statue named "Classmates" or "New Friends" became branded in a May 2015 as a depiction of mansplaining -- a man voicing unwanted opinions to a woman who just wants him to shut up.

E. Hildebrand Ave., San Antonio, TX
Northeast of downtown, on the campus of the University of the Incarnate Word. From US Hwy 281, exit onto Hildebrand Ave. Drive east a half-mile. At the stoplight turn left onto the campus and park. The statue is exactly where you make that turn, about 100 feet north of the street. (If the gate is closed, park in the lots on the south side of the street.)

[Jason, 08/27/2016]

The artist who made the 1990s sculpture of a young woman on a bench and a young man talking at her never dreamed that, decades later, it would become a stark symbol of gender imperialism. Or something.
