Buzzfeed, Buzzfeed, Buzzfeed.
You warned me. You said it three times. You told me that you were about to show me pictures of frozen, cooked and diced genitals… You told me turn back… And I didn’t. I ignored your advice. Now I want to throw up. Or gouge out my own eyeballs. Or both.
Apparently this is true. A chef, Mao Sugiyama, who identifies as asexual, went in for surgery to have his penis and testicles removed. I’m cool with that, if that’s your thing. I hope you’ve thought long and hard about it and sought some support from experts, but if after all that you’ve decided you’d be better off without genitals I’m all for it. Your body, your decision.
But to make “art” out of it—cook and serve it—I mean, really?? Really, friend? I’m worried.
And to all of you reading this, be warned. there is nothing subtle happening in the photographs Buzzfeed is offering. So listen to their warnings, or prepare to completely freak the F out like I just did.
What do you think? Am I overreacting?
What do you think Mao Sugiyama is trying to say with this form of artistic expression?
