The feminist movement began with the assertion that women are more than their bodies — that biology is not a woman’s destiny.
Oddly, today’s feminists seem to equate women with exactly that — their biology, specifically, the vagina.
The obsession began with the 1996 debut of the play, The Vagina Monologues, written by Eve Ensler to, in her words, “celebrate the vagina”.
The Vagina Monologues is made up of various personal monologues on the “feminine experience” — sex, sex work, body image, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of “female empowerment” and the ultimate “embodiment of individuality”.
22 years later, feminists and the Left have only become even more obsessed with the vagina.
Note: The vagina is the elastic, muscular part of the female genital tract that leads tothe cervix, the entrance to the uterus or womb. Entrance into the vagina is via the vulva or labial folds. Often, vagina is mistaken for the vulva. An example is actress Cameron Diaz‘s reference to shaving her vagina, which makes no sense because hair doesn’t grow inside a woman’s vagina unless she is afflicted by some very strange disease. What Diaz really means is shaving her pubic mound. (See “Stupid Hollyweirdo: Cameron Diaz has a hairy vagina“)
Obsession with the vagina/vulva finds expression in everyday objects, from the infamous pussy hats and vagina suits in the Women’s March (against Trump) on January 21, 2017, to Christmas ornaments, mugs, vases, pillows, and furniture.
I just don’t get it.
Why should the vagina be “celebrated” and how does this celebrating “empower” women?
