"The good thing is that this is so insipidly solipsistic that I think she's going to have ruined the Vagina book like Cutthroat Island destroyed the pirate film."

"Might be 15 years before someone gambles with Vaginas of the Caribbean."

Also at that link: "My Vagina is Large; It Contains Multitudes. Who knew the female sex-organ was so chatty?"

***
The passage...
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
... has 19 highlighters in my Kindle version of "Leaves of Grass."

Hey, remember the role of "Leaves of Grass" in the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal?
Feb. 28: After she attended the taping of Clinton's radio show, she had her picture taken with him. He told her to see his secretary Betty Currie because he had something for her. Currie accompanied Lewinsky into the study next to the Oval Office. Then Currie walked into the nearby pantry, where she waited for about 15 minutes while Lewinsky and the president had a sexual encounter -- their first in 11 months. Then he gave her a hat pin and Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass." Lewinsky later discovered that the blue dress she had worn that day was stained with his semen.
Speaking of containing multitudes!

Goodness. Using a vagina book as an opening to making an issue of Bill Clinton's issue.

What should frighten everyone is that this fascination with one's own gonads is what started the Crusades.

Poor Betty. She must have felt like a procurer hiding in the pantry for him to finish.

Fie on Eve Ensler. Though I'm pretty sure that Vagina Soliloquies has become as popular as it has because famous actresses get to play at being edgy and transgressive without ever having to memorize anything. They can just sit there and read without a great deal of rehearsal and blocking, etc. It costs nothing to stage, so overhead is low. And nothing brings ticket buyers like VAGINA on the marquee.

I've writing some scenes for an online sitcom (for lack of a better term) where enterprising marketing folk focus-test the concept of the Vagina Monologues and find "vagina" is threatening and "monolgue" boring, so they 're-envision' the show as the much snappier-sounding "Cooch Talks!"

Obtuse name for a multiple-penetration gang bang flick.

...get her in a beret and Naomi Wolf is the spittin' image.

Rabel said...

Please, please Republicans, put counter-protesters in giant tampon costumes alongside the code pink vaginas.

"My Vagina is Large; It Contains Multitudes"

by Octomom?

traditionalguy said...

Begating multitudes is a man's job.

The Greek god Eros (who is one of the 4 primordial Greek gods) was represented as a man that shoots love arrows into women's hearts. All that Roman crap about cupid being a cuddly boy wearing a blindfold is all wrong.

Eros planned and executed his taking of Psyche. She never knew what hit her. Psyche-iatrists beware.

rhhardin said...

Storm Large ought to come up.

There are three parts for a behind the scenes video as well, which may or may not be interesting. It's not interesting enough for me but it doesn't look awful for film critics and interpreters.

Perhaps Wolf's vagina is so large that it can contain the next DNC convention.

Apparently there's room for Obama, Sandra Fluke, Bill Clinton, The Planned Parenthood gals, Code Pink etc.

The personal is political!

elkh1 said...

Gross and demeans women.

Liberals are waging war on women.

Give them free condoms, they would do anything for free.

rehajm said...

Is Naomi's vagina tweeting yet? It's own Facebook Page?

Harsh Pencil said...

Actually, Sandra Fluke's vagina is big enough to hold the entire federal government. Otherwise she wouldn't be saying "get the government out of my vagina."

rhhardin said...

I don't think it demeans women.

It also cuts out the hidden political use of feminine modesty, which would be good.

Next target: soap opera.

Girls, we have to clean up our act if we want to be treated as adults.

chickelit said...

Taut twat-taught twattle.

The Crack Emcee said...

rhhardin,

Storm Large ought to come up.

Fuck, you beat me to it.

Storm and I are old friends, and her vagina is bigger than all these bitches,...

holdfast said...

Reminds me of a song by the Bloodhound Gang.

Something about rhyming?

edutcher said...

Just take a look at Courbet's "The Origin Of the World".

It's like watching "Captain Blood" after seeing "Cutthroat Island". You have to taste a little Ripple to appreciate the Mumm.

Word.

I recall way back when Enlser began the vagina stuff, one of the questions she asked was if lined with fabric, what fabic would your vagina be lined with. I couldn't choose between eyelet cotton and dark red velvet.

sleepless nights said...

I did notice a huge change in attitude (for the better) once "vaginas" became "vag" and penises (Penii?) became "peens". More casual and friendly or something.

Not sure how that started - if it was a distant echo of the original vagina monologues or porn had something to do with it. Kevin Smith movies? I don't know.

I think it was Titus.

No wait, that was 'hogs.'

1) It's disgusting how people like Eve Ensler can parlay being disgusting into a "literary" career.

2) "Might be 15 years before someone gambles with Vaginas of the Caribbean." And no remake of "The Vagina That Ate Cleveland," I'll bet.

Back in the '70s, "feminist artist" Judy Chicago had an exhibit called The Dinner Party, which consisted of various representations of vaginas. I knew a local artist who named herself "Maria Manhattan" and put on a parody called

The Box Lunch

Now clap.

Tight, ain't it?

Fat, ugly, old, pseudo-intellectual whore gonna act like a fat, ugly, old, pseudo-intellectual whore.

I thought Geena Davis was pretty hot in Cutthroat Island. It was the sexiest either she or any pirate has been for me. Johnny Depp is not what I'm looking for pirates.

Like sleeve of wizard?

I wonder when her vagina starts its monologue can her asshole get a word in edgewise?

William said...

This poor woman has an obsessive need to show her vagina to every physician in the world. It's a form of Munchausen by proxy called convex glory hole. She keeps inventing ever more elaborate maladies and demanding the physician examine her ever more deeply. She's got one poor doctor doing an intrauterine spinal exam. Just at present she's apparently found some form of transient relief, but it won't be long before her vagina suffers a relapse and she'll be on to the next doctor.

Corn or Wheat Tortilla?

Monica's vagina would have plenty to monologue about, but it's impolite to talk with one's mouth full.

Probably never been to Hedo, I'm guessing.

Ah yes, it used to be a face that launched a thousand ships. No one ever stopped to say that it was really a vagina that did that.

I knew plumpy girls like Monica Lewinsky. They all had one trait in common that I found utterly fascinating. Their nails. They had the best manicures and pedicures. Their skin was smooth as silk and they were hot. They knew how to dress and they knew how to accentuate themselves in very feminine ways without being overtly sexual. But they also had a hidden vulnerability to them. One that they could never shake. Love, they wanted to be loved and accepted for who they were as larger women in contrast to the skinny waif types. They would do anything for you if you showed them a modicum of affection. It was kind of sad and thrilling all at the same time.

Goodness had nothing to do with it.

Sorry, It had to be said. Let no innuendo go unexploited.

rhhardin said...

Armstrong and Getty, looking at a B/W photo of the vagina protest, say it looks like somebody dressed as a taco.

mikee said...

Thank you, Rumpletweezer, for making me laugh with the punch line to a joke I last heard decades ago.

And in return, I offer this punchline from another feminist joke: "Hey - I did it with no hands! So should you!"

rick said...

I could be all wet here (ha), but wasn't Code Pink ostensibly created as war protest group? You know, the war(s)that now include bombing the living snot out of Pakistan.
