San Francisco (CA) – Donald Trump visited the Castro in the buff this morning, in the form of a very curious piece of public art.  Nobody ever thought they would see Donald Trump in Jane Warner Plaza outside of the historic Twin Peaks Tavern like this.  Unfortunately by the time you get down there, the odds are the city will have had him removed.

Notice the attention to detail on this fine work of art, the photo realistic and translucent skin allowing a view of Trumps subtle blue veins underneath, and of course the carefully measured and anatomically accurate micro-penis on full display.  We are reaching out to the Trump camp in order to confirm whether or not Trump in fact ‘Has No Balls” as the statue’s title insinuates.

The statue’s full title is “The Emperor Has No Balls” and is credited to ‘INDECLINE’ or ‘Iиdecliиe‘ as they spell it using Cyrillic ‘N’s. They are a guerilla artist crew out of San Diego who placed several statues in different cities across the country this morning.  Here is the one found in south side of Union Square Park in NY, and there are confirmed statues in LA and Seattle as well.

There is also an awesome video of the sculpting and paining process involved in the making of these statues by Indicline.  And if you’d like to check out more of their other vids and activist art check them out at:

    These sorts of art stunts like the chick who painted him with a micropenis and now this are pretty much the worst way to attack him. Attacking his appearance? Jesting about his genitals size? As if his policies are just so fantastic we can’t possibly attack him for those. Artists like this make Trump a victim of body shaming. Why even give him an inch (no pun intended) on being a victim? Attack his terrible policies and stances on every social issue. If we stoop so low as to name call and make fun of his looks he’s definitely going to win the election and that spells the end of this nation.

    Fatphobic. Transphobic. Sexist. Body-shaming. This is super-busted. My partner looks a lot like this, minus the ugly sneer and ugly ACTIONS, which is what make Trump an ugly person and my partner a beautiful, gentle, loving and lovable man. Trumps words and policies are what make him terrible, not his body.

      You can’t just throw around buzzwords and pretend that’s a good point. How is a fat person inherently fatphobic? How is this anywhere close to transphobic? Are you unable to tell the difference between people who are and aren’t trans?

        The commentary on this statue is largely stuff like “gross,” “disgusting,” “my eyes,” etc. Either the artist knew that depicting a naked person with a fat belly and flat ass would be seen this way, and decided it supported the “comic,” “demeaning” effect they wanted, or they were painfully ignorant of how body shaming and fatphobia works in this country. All day I’ve watched people make comments about how “my eyes are burning!” and “I’m gonna vomit!” That doesn’t just reflect on Trump (whether or not his body really looks like this) – it splashes back on kind, decent, intelligent, loving people like my partner because their bodies look the same.

        The “Emperor has no balls” caption rests on the idea that to be a “real man,” you have to have testicles (and the implication is that he’s also unmanly because of the small penis). Tell that to trans men and then tell me it’s not transphobic. And why is it important to have “balls” and be a “real man”? Because not having balls means you’re unfit, inferior, a “pussy.” Like a woman. This statue is meant to be demeaning and embarrassing to trump because he’s shown having an “unpleasant” looking body with “unmanly” genitals. It’s meant to incite disgust and ridicule. Trump’s body isn’t what we should be focusing on. It’s his disgusting, ridiculous beliefs and actions.

        The word you’re looking for in the second paragraph of your rant is “sexist”. Gendered stereotypes about men aren’t inherently transphobic, they’re sexist. Trying to force gendered stereotypes to be transphobic is not helpful to anyone.

        The image of a naked fat man is not fatphobia. The bullshit reactions you’ve seen are fatphobia. Wringing your hands over the image of a fat man is fatphobia. When you say outright that the image of a naked fat man is inherently fatphobic regardless of the creator’s intent, you are the one promoting the idea that fat people have something to be ashamed about. Love, a fat person.

    Wow. This must have taken an IQ of at least 90 to come up with. And I thought the argument was that Trump supporters were the ignoramuses? #racetothebottom

    Meh, I’m not sure what this does to help move forward the argument that Trump is a child and we’re trying to be adults. I feel like although this seems humorous and makes a statement, it sets us further back than forward.
