If Only Her Boobs Could Play the Drums

This flier was put in all the student programs’ mailboxes at the end of last week. Indeed, I’m sure some of you may have seen a girl in a big vagina costume walking around campus (someone saw it and told me they initially thought it was some kind of protest, which seems reasonable). Needless to say, the sight is rather odd. Especially when you consider that, by the looks of the drawing on the flier, the costume may be a tad under-contextualized. Some upturned legs or a tuft of hair at the top may do the trick next time.

The “Vaginagram” is a fundraising effort by the Women’s Center for a retreat they want to do. I’m glad to see programs are doing such fundraising (although I have to ask, what money paid for the suit? Also, where the fuck do you buy a big vagina suit?) but to be honest, I’m not so sure a singing vagina really makes that much sense. Who really connects the dots between a singing vagina and a valentine? Also, does the Men’s Center plan on following suit with a big, breakdancing cock?

These are questions I’d like answered. Preferably in song.

I highly recommend buying one of these for your friends. How often does an opportunity like this arise? It’s a no-brainer.

    @ash, it’s not “anti-feminist” to think a vagina suit is about the dumbest, most self-absorbed and bizarre thing a women’s group to use to draw attention to itself. You’d think that any true feminist group would try to point out that a good woman is a whole heck of a lot more than a talking vagina.

    It is funny though in the sense that we are laughing at you and not with you.

    Maybe you should google humor, ash, because you seem completely incapable of spotting it.

    You also might want to actually read the post since it enthusiastically supports this effort.

    you people are so anti-feminist its disgusting, this blog actually made me sick to read and what was posted in the comments is even worse. the woman’s center is a safe place for women who have been assaulted or just need to talk. so what if they want to have a girl in a vagina costume sing for valentine’s day? its called humor, you should google it sometime.

    Interesting question: the student mailboxes are considered US Mailboxes pursuant to Federal law. I have to wonder what would happen if a bunch of students were to file Form PS-1500 with the local Post Office.

    The women’s center would no longer be allowed to send ANYTHING to the particular students — and the way most universities will react is rather than having the risk that something will be mistakenly sent, will ban them from putting anything in ANY mailbox…..

    It is Federal law here….

    If the Men’s Center follows up with a giant cock, what happens when they meet?

    I saw a girl in one of the vag costumes the other day. It was so weird it nearly scared me out of my hangover. At least this explains it.

    JMB’s right, but it’s a hilarious opinion piece. Funnier than the whole Sex Issue of the OC put together.

    If a male organization tried this, we’d be hearing about how it helps foster a “rape culture” on campus.
