A Danish photographer’s “Sex” photo atop the Great Pyramid of Giza is causing an uproar. What a fun article! I read this and thought to myself, “Good for them!” What an unforgettable adventure these two got to experience.
As for the backlash, I find it laughable. How can this Pyramid that’s lasted millennia be damaged or tarnished by a naked bottom or two momentarily resting on its surface? The backlash from a cultural standpoint is also ridiculous, since the Muslims became a majority in Egypt between 10th and 14th century, and the Pyramid of Giza was constructed between c. 2580—2560 BC.
And how do we even know if the Ancient Egyptians didn’t embark on such adventures themselves? There’s a thought that makes me smile.
The photographer denies having sex on the Pyramid. The Guardian says, “The photographer regularly posts images of sexual scenes involving nudity against breathtaking skylines on his Instagram page. Naked women scaling city cranes or resting among woodland ruins are among photographs in his collection.”
For some reason, nudity is quickly taking over the world as one of the top crimes to commit. Meanwhile, three of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history have occurred within the past 12 months.
Something tells me we’re being enraged by the wrong things here.
