Are there are any registered vaginas in the house?

File under: XX Marks the Spot, I Read The News Today, Oh Boy. Posted by Moebius Stripper at 11:24 am.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried:

[In Eve] Ensler’s final explosion…she read the dictionary on the spelling of VOTE: “Voracious! Vociferous! Vitamin! Vehement!” “Oppose! Out of office! Overcome, overflow, orgasm!” “Talented! Tantalizing! Turn out! Texas!” Mysteriously, she didn’t shout any e-words, instead returning to her favorite letter, and yelping in alphabetic ecstasy, “Vulva! Vulva! Vulva! Vote!”

That’s it, I’m convinced; Eve Ensler is a creation of misogynist Republicans, deployed to discredit women’s concerns.

Yet another reason, alas, to be grateful that I’m living in a country in which election campaigns run for all of five weeks, which doesn’t leave much time for either the “where was YOUR candidate in 1972?” ads and interviews or for the “LISTEN TO MY VAGINA” counterarguments.
