Years ago in the museum, we were putting together a show. All the labels had to be vetted through Education for readability. Unfortunately, at the time, education was dominated by a group of guerilla feminists. We were told that the entire show was unacceptably androcentric. They didn't use the term 'androcentric'. The term they used was considerably more graphic.
We decided to have a little fun and put together an 'Androcentric' Christmas tree. Every ornament on the tree was something you'd expect to find on an ordinary tree but every last one was also a male symbol. There were animals; a lion, a rooster, a bison, a stallion.
There were cute little wooden figures; a football player, a weightlifter, a cowboy and a soldier.
Glass ornaments included the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, a pickle, a cigar and a chili pepper.
You get the idea.
Ironically, the people from Education never got the joke.
Have you ever made or seen a slightly subversive Christmas Tree?
