“Forced Femininity” tells the story of death by a thousand cuts. Manikins are documented to shed light on our curated subconscious and how we view women. They are on display in the same vein that men want to see us, as- titillating bits and pieces, subdued, and sexually available. They reflect a distorted view of women, as much as they are a clear reflection of male desire. They speak to the horror of that desire- limbs are amputated, parts are missing, and bodies distorted. It is violent and terrifying, and we are trained to pursue it.
