We have met the Barbarians, and they are us...

How else to explain this story?

A 36-year-old woman was charged Wednesday after punching, scratching and sliding her buttocks against a painting worth more than $30 million, authorities in Colorado said.

Carmen Tisch is accused of pulling her pants down to rub up against the work, an oil-on-canvas called "1957-J no.2", by the late abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still.

Tisch allegedly caused $10,000 worth of damage to the painting.

Kimbrough said Tisch urinated after she rubbed up against the canvas at the recently opened Clyfford Still museum in Denver....

And women were once the "gentler" sex.  Is this what feminism hath wrought? Or just liberalism, a philosophical genre where nothing is sacred, save for the current moment, and what can be wrung from it? Even if it means the destruction of priceless American art for the pleasurable feeling obtained by rubbing one's bare ass against it, while drunk beyond the control of your facilities?

She doesn't exactly look like a conservative to me....
