More on V-Day

Some of you may object to my continued dwelling on this story, suspecting that this is all just a pretext to use the word "vagina" in mixed company.

Thank you for noticing!

But Victory Soap (Andrea Harris, I presume) has further thoughts on the matter:

The widely-touted "fear of the vagina" died when the Pill was invented; that fear was born of the idea that women could chain men to them by their fruitful wombs; once the womb could be made unfruitful, there went the idea that the vagina was dangerous. Anyway, thanks to the Pill women's one physical weapon, as it were, was "disarmed." No one now is seriously afraid of a vagina.

Well, I wouldn't go that far. Afraid? Maybe not. But it still produces a great amount of anxiety in men. I mean-- what the hell is it? What's going on with that whole confusing set-up?

It's at least several orders of magnitude more anxiety-inducing than trying to add a second CD drive to your computer. At least for that you can call up Jaglesh in Bombay for tech-assistance.

Hell, I might even call up Jaglesh to find out what the hell is going on with a woman's dirty parts. But, being a guy, he won't have any f'n' clue either. He'll just keep saying "Have you tried rebooting?" and "Are you sure you have the most current drivers?"

Which is, you know, what Jaglesh says for everything, anyway.

Which is why Eve Ensler is so stupid. .... What women want is the same thing they've always wanted: to be taken seriously, to be thought something more than her body parts. Thanks to Eve Ensler and her many fans, women are being made to look more and more frivolous and stupid every day, and as we can see, men are still feared as the wielders of the Fearsome Penis, Hammer of Thor, that makes fainting maidens of both sexes, at least in the halls of academe, scream and run.

Would that it were so.

Modern-day feminists keep asking themselves why more and more women are turning away from NOW and other trad-fem groups in favor of horrid old male-dominated institutions like marriage, motherhood and and the Catholic Church... and again and again the feminists complacently blame it on those icky boys and their all-powerful phalluses. Feminism is being marginalized out of existence by the feminists; it's not a tragedy, though -- it's a farce. But the joke's on us.

This is just further evidence that in any aggregation of like-minded individuals, it will not be long before the most extreme and attention-craving will control everything and drive the more sensible and centered persons into apostacy.

In little political groups, you don't get attention or stature or "bad boy"/"riot grrl" points by proposing sensible propaganda that has a good chance of persuading some readers or listeners. Nope. You get attention and stature by proposing that you begin wacking US Senators (Vietnam Veterans Against the War) or that you stage a "Vag-In" in the campus administration building, where everyone strips to underwear emblazoned with the slogans "Keep Your Agenda Off My Pudenda!" and "You Can't Spell 'Uterus" without 'U' and 'US.'"
