French Feminists Miss Real Reason to be Offended

Shamelessly pinched from the story linked below.

Osez Le FĂ©minisme maintains that the statue is clearly nothing more than the disgusting depiction of a sexual assault in progress.
“The sailor could have laughed with these women, hugged them, asked them if he could kiss them with joy,” the group told The Times of London.
“No, he chose to grab them with a firm hand to kiss them,” they continued. “It was an assault.”
I too find the display ignorant. But only because: what's it doing in Normandy? The kiss was on V-J Day, not D-Day.
