What Do You Think of This Statue?

A controversy this morning on the campus of Wellesley College in Massachusetts.

Imagine waking up, looking out your window and seeing this statue of a mostly naked man. Sleepwalking.

It's a piece of art part of a exhibition of the sculptor's work at the Wellesley College museum but some at the all-female school are demanding the statue be taken down.

They're calling it stress-inducing, and saying it triggers thoughts of sexual assault.

The college says the goal of the exhibition is to provoke discussion.
