    That’s not how art works. Once it is released it is free to be interpreted as the viewer/listener/reader interpreters it. So if someone see’s a man screaming, it’s a man screaming.

    If you’re going to try to condescend about something, try to be right. Otherwise you look not only dense, but the worst kind of dense -- confidently,categorically, pridefully dense .
