Women of the IRA


All images from The Fourth Sex are paralleling and contradicting images of youth culture. When opposing realities and images of youth meet, they collide, there's violence...as in Columbine. I was in 4th grade when that happened.
Violence is a part of youth culture; the armed struggle of the IRA was propelled by youth, Bobby Sands was 27 when he starved to death.
Kids try on habits learned from adults.

The Fourth Sex

I read once that the most attractive part of a man is his femininity, and the most attractive thing in a woman is her masculinity. This is the epitome of that sentiment.
