According to the sourcelink, there will be a Vagina Museum opening in London this November 16th, thanks to a crowdfunding haul of around $62k. The purpose? To “educate visitors about vulvas and vaginas while challenging the prevailing stigma surrounding them,” according to marketing manager Zoe Williams, who spoke to CNN about it.
I guess I am in need of a visit there, because I had no idea there was a “prevailing stigma” surrounding vaginas. But read on.
To be fair, there’s already a Penis Museum in Iceland, and the very woman (Florence Schechter) who founded the penis museum (called the Icelandic Phallological Museum), is ALSO the founder of the idea of the Vagina Museum. So, you know, equal rights or something.
Then again, penises are hilarious, and I am totally down to clown with a penis museum. If it were here in Indy, I’d totally go just because of how hilarious penises are. Iceland is a bit out of the way, is all.
Schechter was thrilled with the amount of money she raised for the Vagina Museum. But you guys, it doesn’t sound nearly as fun as the penis museum.
One of the museum’s exhibits will be titled, “Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How to Fight Them.”
So here’s one of the “pervasive myths” about vaginas that apparently requires an ENTIRE MUSEUM to be opened up to bust it. Williams explained that there’s a myth that “vaginas and vulva need to be cleaned through the use of bespoke feminine cleaning products; however, the vagina is completely self cleaning.”
EVERYONE STOP EVERYTHING AND SOAK THAT IN, because I’m absolutely positive that this is earth-shattering, groundbreaking, brand new news.
No? Y’all knew that soap and water is pretty much all you need? Yeah. I thought so. Maybe Gwyneth Paltrow and her GOOP friends need to visit this museum though, so they stop telling women to shove useless jade eggs into their hoohas.
But wait, y’all. It gets better. Wait’ll you hear the museum’s mission statement. It apparently reads in part, that it will, “act as a forum for feminism, women’s rights, the LGBT+ community and the intersex community,” and also “challenge heteronormative and cisnormative behaviour” and of course “promote intersectional, feminist and trans-inclusive values.”
In case you doubted for even a brief second that this entire hullabaloo was put together by progressive feminist weirdos, there’s your confirmation.
From the sourcelink:
“We want to give everyone the confidence to talk about a perfectly normal part of the anatomy,” Williams explained, citing a study from cancer research charity The Eve Appeal that found 65% of young women and girls in the UK struggled to use the words “vagina” or “vulva.”
“There’s nothing shameful or offensive about vulvas and vaginas,” she said. “They’re a part of the body that should be celebrated!”
As we’ve tried to say pretty much every time feminists insist on throwing their vaginas in everyone’s faces in a multitude of different ways – just because we prefer to not constantly show our vaginas and talk about them and obsess over them doesn’t mean that we think there’s something shameful or offensive about them. It’s kinda like poop. Everyone poops. I’d guess that people are just as likely to avoid talking about poop as they are about vaginas (maybe that should be a study!). There’s nothing wrong with pooping, but it does NOT need to be celebrated. It’s simply a bodily function that EVERY HUMAN employs. Vaginas are simply a body part that half of the human population possesses. If there are 65% of girls in the UK who “struggle to use the words vagina and vulva” did it ever occur to anyone that maybe they’re just – oh, I don’t know – BEING POLITE and refraining from using the word willy-nilly?
Yes. Yes I DID say willy-nilly.
Feminists have an abnormal obsession with their ladyparts, and THAT is what should be studied. Not regular normal people just living their lives, possessing vaginas and not feeling the constant need to talk about them.
