Eastern Michigan University Ends ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Since ‘Not All Women Have Vaginas’

Eastern Michigan University Ends ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Since ‘Not All Women Have Vaginas’

Biology is hard.

EVERYTHING IS OFFENSIVE! That’s how it is nowadays.

Eastern Michigan University’s Women’s Resource Center (WRC) has decided to stop hosting The Vagina Monologues because it excludes some women…like females that don’t have vaginas. Since copyright laws won’t allow them to change the dialogue, the school has chosen to get rid of it.

How do I science?

From MLive.com:

“We feel that making this decision is in line with the WRC mission of recognizing and celebrating the diverse representations of women on campus along with the overall mission of the Department of Diversity and Community Involvement, in which the WRC is housed, of supporting and empowering minoritized students and challenging systems and structures that perpetuate inequities,” the email from the WRC said. “We truly believe that it is important to center our minoritized students and this decision is in line with this mission driven value.”

The survey was launched as a result of conversations with current students, as well as feedback from a WRC workshop titled “Not all women have vaginas,” during the 2017-18 academic year.

Not all women have vaginas? When will people learn that breasts and vaginas don’t make you a female. Your CHROMOSOMES make you female.

They’re ending The Vagina Monologues because it doesn’t include men.

Somehow, a play that addresses the stigma surrounding female anatomy is offensive to those who do not have female anatomy.

The email asked if the play is “still relevant to next generation feminists” and if “we still need” the play. WRC’s email also suggested changing The Vagina Monologues or have “a series of workshops that address the diversity and inclusion it is lacking.”

Look, I don’t care how you identify. I call Bruce Jenner Caitlyn and I use she when talking about her, but she is still biologically a male.

Do what you want, but you do not have the same body parts or chromosomes as someone born as a female. You cannot update or change a play about the female anatomy to include those who do not have it just because they FEEL like a female. Even with surgery and hormones, it doesn’t change your chromosomes. You can add breasts and chop off your penis, but you’re still biologically a male. You still don’t go through a menstrual cycle. You still cannot have children.

No matter what, you cannot get on the same level as a biological female.

ALSO, because the left seems to have forgotten this, every single person is different. Even us biological females do not go through a menstrual cycle, pregnancy, or body development as another one does. Kemberlee and I may have female chromosomes, but our bodies react to our biological functions in different ways.

Does this mean pussyhats are transphobic?

    The PussyHats are sex elitists or chauvinistic. Transgender/homosexuals are gender elitists. So, now we need to reconcile individual, intrinsic, and Natural imperatives in order to reach a conclusion that most behaviors are merely tolerable, and have no redeeming value that justifies normalization. Pro-Choice or avoidance is a short-term solution with progressive consequences.

this has happened before, in other venues…

and it never ceases to amuse, and amaze, me.

pass the pop corn!

    It is nice when they eat their own. Not often enough, though.

    I would love to see Title IX used to destroy womens’ sports, to have the second-place finisher in the Boston Marathon sue for discrimination, to have men invade womens’ tennis. Then maybe we could get some sanity back.

    But it will not happen because they don’t play by their own rules, and so cannot lose. Double standards don’t matter when you control the means of information.

      The MA state Field Hockey Championship was just won by a team with 2 boys. In the championship game one of the boys scored both goals in a 2-1 finish.

      In this case the boys identify as boys and they are allowed to play because there is no field hockey for boys but it still doesn’t make it right.

I keep wondering, “Can we get any more insane?”

And the answer is always no.

    RasMoyag in reply to Arminius. | November 20, 2018 at 1:23 pm

    I almost agree. But do you remember when a no meant yes? And only a “NO-NO-NO-fuckyou-get-away-from-me-you-lousy-no-good-pervert” screamed out loud at least twice meant no.

    Edward in reply to Arminius. | November 20, 2018 at 2:08 pm

    You answer the question of whether people in the US can get any more insane with “No”.

    And then they give us clear evidence that they certainly can attain an even greater level of insanity.

    Imagine the clowns in the audience paying to see this sickness?

      I saw it before it morphed into it’s present day man hating version. The original version performed by the author was absolutely hilarious and made you feel sympathy for the predicament of being a woman. She outlined with humor what life as a women experiences it feels like. Back in the day it was well worth it.

      Another well worth it funny anthropology experience is “men are hunters woman are gathers”. If you ever have the chance to see this with your spouse you will be laughing at each other.

Also, minor point of scientific contention. I’d argue that your chromosomes don’t make you female but your genes do.

There’s a very rare condition called XX Male Syndrome (De La Chappelle Syndrome) where an XX individual gets the SRY gene translocated to an X chromosome. SRY is the gene that codes for embryonic development of male genitalia. I’d argue that this individual is male. (And to be clear, this condition does not align with transgender tendencies)

    Arminius in reply to healthguyfsu. | November 20, 2018 at 1:09 pm

    Not even the fiercest science deniers among us have claimed there are not intersexual people.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Arminius. | November 20, 2018 at 4:55 pm

      My point was not to change the whole argument but just a small change to the statement in the article that says, “Not all women have vaginas? When will people learn that breasts and vaginas don’t make you a female. Your CHROMOSOMES make you female.”

      I think that the best way to address that would be your GENES, not chromosomes.

    Mary Chastain in reply to healthguyfsu. | November 20, 2018 at 4:56 pm

    Oh I know, but isn’t it incredibly rare for that to happen?

    alaskabob in reply to healthguyfsu. | November 20, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    Add “testicular feminization” where the male (XY) is born without testosterone receptors.. genetic issue (but genes come from chromosomes). The appearance is female but with undescended testicles. No vagina or uterus. In this case, raising as “female” is best.

    Arminius in reply to healthguyfsu. | November 21, 2018 at 7:03 am

    It’s not a minor point. You make a great point. We all should refine our language to be more precise.

Hold my beer.

I don’t want to come across as flippant. Intersex individuals deserve our love and support.

Actually confused people who are under the impression that they can
identify as something other than what they are deserve our love and support as well. What they don’t need is us participating in their delusion. That’s just wrong.

All sorts of riffraff count as women? This is called “diluting the brand”.

If the PC über Alles types are throwing all women (real women, that is) under the bus, it’s going to get pretty crowded under there.

    TX-rifraph in reply to tom_swift. | November 20, 2018 at 1:41 pm

    Gee! Am I now a minoritized victim (or something) because of your microaggressive use of the word “riffraff?”

    Never mind. I can’t even think like they do. Inadequate programming.

    MajorWood in reply to tom_swift. | November 20, 2018 at 8:54 pm

    “diluting the brand” That needs a spot in the on-board insult library. 😉

You get it wrong.

When you don’t have one, you’re not one of those who do.

The transgender spectrum includes individuals with uncorrelated physical and mental (e.g. sexual orientation) attributes. So, now what?

Should we normalize or tolerate the conflation of sex and gender, genotype and phenotype, equal and politically congruent (“=”), etc.?

I call Bruce Jenner Caitlyn and I use she when talking about her, but she is still biologically a male.

and then you add to the problem everytime you do.

And yet all vaginas have a woman.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalking_Cat

“Stalking Cat (born Dennis Avner; August 27, 1958 – November 5, 2012)[1] was an American man known for his extensive body modifications, which were intended to increase his resemblance to a tigress.[2] For his 14 surgical procedures towards that goal, he held a world record for “most permanent transformations to look like an animal.”[3][4][5] The name “Stalking Cat” was his spiritual name.[6] ”

Apparently he lived in what is now referred to as a supportive community. Not one of his so-called friends took him aside and told him he wasn’t a tiger. One day he woke up and realized it. And he killed himself.

If he actually had a friend, would he have committed suicide?

Did Macbeth represent all kings ?
Did Steve Martin represent all jerks ?

The Vagina Monologues represent all those with viginas.

Would a “Women without viginas monologues” be any less intolerant ?

That’s okay. Not all Democrats have a brain.

buckeyeminuteman | November 20, 2018 at 2:44 pm

The Party of Science thinks the male anus is a sex organ and vaginas are optional for females. People so open minded their brains fell out.

    I have to contend with people who call me a science denier who, think about it, rage against me because I don’t believe in consensus.

    Consensus isn’t science. I actually understand the science better than the global warming philes do.

“Tora doshi desu.”

I was born in the year of the tiger per the Chinese zodiac. That’s how you say it in Japanese.

But unlike Elizabeth Warren, I don’t claim ancestry. Not even 1/1024th.

caseoftheblues | November 20, 2018 at 3:23 pm

So all actual women now must get in the back of the bus because a few men have decided that what they want and how they feel now defines what being a woman is…

I am 1/1024th scumbag.

Something fishy about this.

    Anyway, one of the best teachers I ever had is rolling in his grave.
    AP biology will never be the same. So sorry, Mr. B.

How many lights do you see, Captain? Be careful. The “right” answer will be rewarded with a life of physical comfort and intellectual challenge. The wrong answer will be punished with lifetime of imprisonment and pain.

(the prisoner must pretend he sees five when there are just four)

(afterwards, he admits that his mind hallucinated a 5th light in self-preservation)

If they can make you deny reality, they own you.

I saw it awhile back. At the time I thought it boring and unsexy, despite the fact that there was a very famous model starring in it. I was taken aback at how extraordinarily beautiful she was. She had zero acting skills. The combination of a beautiful woman with no acting skills made it mildly interesting.

I identify as Atreides.

My pronoun is “God Emporer Fenrisulven, Odin Bane, Devourer of Stars”

Or “Your Grace” if that’s too cumbersome.

Damn I wish I was back in college. I would have much fun trolling this nonsense. Although my “Lt Gov Hobby Get Out of Jail” card has expired.

I don’t care why that idiotic play is shut down.

When I first heard of this story I was sure it was shut down due to a shortage of black/latino/chinese/etc minority participation. This is better.

Now I have mixed feelings. Part of me wants to laugh, the other part to laugh hysterically.

Remember, the b in lgbt means there are only two genders.

    Arminius in reply to 4fun. | November 20, 2018 at 11:27 pm

    Good point. The people using the acronym for there not being a gender binary include the letter that means there is a gender binary.

    My head hurts. I don’t think it will ever stop hurting.

    MajorWood in reply to 4fun. | November 21, 2018 at 11:27 am

    That discriminates against the polymorphically perverse.

Western society is f#$%ed

* SIGH *

I want a pecker…just like the pecker…
That was attached to dear ol mom…!!!!!

Come on…everybody sing along….

Feminists brought this on themselves.
They jumped on the intersectionality bandwagon with both feet and now other members of the coalition are censoring what views they deem appropriate.

Anyone who thought such a coalition riven with internal contradictions could be held together by anything other than brute force never heard of Yugoslavia.

“intersectionality” WTF does this mean? An intersection is where two roads meet and cross each other. An intersection is where two lines drawn on paper meet each other and cross. In mathematics, the intersection A ∩ B of two sets A and B is the set that contains all elements of A that also belong to B (or equivalently, all elements of B that also belong to A), but no other elements. Non of this has anything to do with vaginas. You liberal “intellectuals” are spouting plain old BS. You are either XX or XY — what don’t you understand?

Antifundamentalist | November 21, 2018 at 4:45 pm

So, if I understand this…. Feminist Women are now having their Feminist productions cancelled because MEN (who identify as women) feel left out? MEN are taking over. Again. And the girls are okay with this? Bwahahahaha!
