Residents of Multnomah County, Oregon, have petitioned the Portland City Council to create a new holiday for U.S. Navy pilot Anthony Cruise after he drew a giant vagina in the sky with his airplane.
Photos sent to the Sacramento Brie by multiple sources show sky drawings of what some people are saying is female genitalia. Some sources have even tweeted pictures of what they saw.
A mother who lives in Portland took pictures of the drawings and said she was ecstatic that she’d have to explain to her young boys what the drawings were.
“Opportunities to talk about female empowerment don’t come along every day,” she said, almost breaking into tears. “For a young boy to see a giant vagina in the sky is … well … I just don’t have the words.”
Navy officials said in a press statement that “the Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we applaud the courage of this young male feminist pilot. The training value of something like this is unbelievable. We’re holding a promotion ceremony later today.”
Federal Aviation Administration officials said the act would have been justifiable even if it posed a safety risk.
