The dark secret of "The Vagina Monologues" and female rape denial
I've noticed there seems to be a strong effort to destroy all existing copies of the original work. I used to see the idea that girls needed to be 'inoculated' against heterosexual activity in a lot of feminist literature.
One work as Sydney Uni disturbingly combined it with breastfeeding, and advocated lesbian infantile incest as the weapon against the Patriarchy.
Of course, when I bring it up with feminists who claim that "feminism is just about the idea women are human beings", they either deny it exists, or claim it was second wavers and totally doesn't count, or say "they aren't true Scotsmen... err.. feminists!"
Is Eve Ensler not a 'true' Feminist? Then why does she get invited to Feminist panels?
Reblogged from Jung's Endless Shadow which I highly recommend!
