    Students at Carleton College recently hosted an “all-gender” rendition of The Vagina Monologues in an effort to eschew the play’s roots in a “cisgender lens.” While productions of The Vagina Monologues have been a mainstay of campus feminist groups since its debut in 1996, the play has often been criticized by college students for its lack of focus on people of color and trans students.
  • Colleges Reject ‘The Vagina Monologues’ Because ‘In Order to Be a Woman, You Must Have a Vagina’

    The Vagina Monologues is “antiquated” because it suggests “that in order to be a woman, you must have a vagina,” an American University student has claimed. Kendall Baron, a junior and a staffer at the Women’s Initiative, criticized the famous feminist play in an email first obtained by Campus Reform. The play “represents a binary representation of gender,” she wrote redundantly.
  • ‘Empowering’? Video shows Duke pornstar and ‘feminist’ being choked, degraded, and abused

    DURHAM, NC, March 20, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – During a national media blitz, the Duke University student who makes pornographic films to pay her tuition has said her experience in the industry has left her feeling “empowered” and uplifted. But an anti-pornography activist has posted a shocking video graphically undermining her claims. “My experience in porn has been nothing but supportive, exciting, thrilling, and empowering,” Miriam Weeks, who revealed that she performs under the name Belle Knox, wrote on the feminist website xoJane.com last month. “For me, shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy.” “It is my artistic outlet: my love, my...
  • Men's Rights Activists Call For Boycott Of 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' Citing Feminist Agenda

    A well-known "men's rights activist" blog is calling for a boycott of the postapocalyptic film "Mad Max: Fury Road" for being a "feminist piece of propaganda posing as a guy flick." Author Aaron Clarey admits he has not seen the film yet, but his self-proclaimed "spidey sense" noticed that Charlize Theron "talked a lot during the trailers" for the film, and he said Tom Hardy only seemed to have cameo appearances. "Charlize Theron's character barked orders to Mad Max," writes Clarey on Return of Kings. "Nobody barks orders to Mad Max." Clarey did not like reading reviews commending Theron for...
  • All-Women’s College Cancels “Vagina Monologues” Play Because It’s Not “Inclusive” of Transgender

    01/16/2015 5:51:02 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 32 replies
    How many transgender students are currently enrolled at Mount Holyoke? . . . Zero. Via Campus Reform: Mount Holyoke College, an all-women’s college in Massachusetts, is retiring its annual production of the Vagina Monologues this year because the play is not inclusive of transgender students. The annual production of the play is part of a country-wide tradition to perform Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues on Valentine’s Day to raise awareness about gender-based violence and usually coincides with the V-Day campaign. The proceeds are donated to sexual assault prevention organizations or women’s rights organizations.
  • Here's the reason this all-women's college cancelled its yearly 'Vagina Monologues'

    washington examiner ^ | January 15, 2015 | | Ashe Schow |
    The “Vagina Monologues” was once a yearly tradition at Mount Holyoke College, an all-women’s school in Massachusetts. But not this year. The reason? Apparently the show is no longer feminist enough and actually hurts women because it doesn’t include monologues from trans-women. Suddenly, the most feminist play in America is both transphobic and racist. “At its core, the show offers an extremely narrow perspective on what it means to be a woman,” wrote Erin Murphy, a representative for the school’s Theatre Board, said in a campus-wide email obtained by Campus Reform. “Gender is a wide and varied experience, one that...

    LANSING , MICHIGAN, June 19, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two pro-abortion Michigan state legislators protested being banned from the House floor by staging a reading of “The Vagina Monologues,” an obscene play that in one section celebrates the molestation of a minor girl by an adult lesbian. During debate on the state’s wide-ranging pro-life bill last Thursday, Democratic State Representative Lisa Brown of West Bloomfield, said, “I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.” She and another female Democrat were censured – a move they protested by holding a reading of the play yesterday.

    A state lawmaker who says she was barred from speaking in the Michigan House because Republicans objected to her saying "vagina" during debate over anti-abortion legislation performed "The Vagina Monologues" on the Statehouse steps — with a hand from the author. Eve Ensler, whose groundbreaking play about women's sexuality still packs theaters 16 years after it debuted, oversaw Monday night's performance by Democratic state Rep. Lisa Brown, 10 other lawmakers and several actresses. Capitol facilities director Steve Benkovsky estimated about 2,500 spectators — women and men — watched the play in downtown Lansing from lawn chairs and blankets. Billed on...

    Hey ya'll come to Lansing, there'll be plenty of vaginas.This whole controversy disgusts me, but hey, it's part of the reason why I'm not a Democrat. The false narrative that the media is running with on the vagina controversy in Lansing is basically what the Democrats say it's about. According to female Democrats, women are being censored on the House floor for daring to say the word vagina. So, in order to really really get those evil male Republicans to pay, the women plan to talk about taking mirrors to view the female genitalia, how the hair feels, orgasms, and...

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    Insight Scoop ^ | March 26, 2011 | Carl Olson
    This developing story is unbelievable. Well, not really. But, first, the believable: for some time now there has been a strong push by various faculty members and students at Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA) to have an on-campus production of "The Vagina Monologues" (TVM). Fomer president Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., while head of the Jesuit school (1998-2009), twice refused productions of the play; it was also vetoed last year. But now, it appears, TVM may very well be performed this year on the Gonzaga campus. Dr. Eric Cunningham, a professor of history at the school, wrote the following letter to The...

    Jesuit Fr. Michael Engh, who took over as president of Santa Clara University on Jan. 1, has ordered the cancellation of a scheduled campus production of “The Vagina Monologues,” the Cardinal Newman Society reports. Santa Clara had hosted the play in previous years under its former president, Fr. Father Paul Locatelli, S.J., said the Newman Society. Father Engh’s action is an encouraging sign toward renewal and he deserves the thanks and gratitude of the Catholic faithful who have been praying for an end to the Monologues on Catholic campuses for the past seven years,” said Newman Society president Patrick J....

    Faith of Our Feminists by: Malcolm A. Kline, December 22, 2008 One of the oddities of modern-day Catholic higher education, particularly in institutions run by Jesuit priests, is that Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues seems to be more ubiquitous on such campuses than Nativity scenes or Crucifixes. Recently, Rev. Kenneth Himes, OFM, explained how the Theology department at Boston College came to sponsor such a production. In comments to Michael Reer, editor-in-chief of The Observer, the Catholic newspaper at BC, Rev. Himes laid out his rationale for giving the show the go-ahead at BC. His comments did not make it into...

    Feminist-activist Eve Ensler wants women across the country to vote against a woman. A woman named Sarah Palin, who's running for vice president on John McCain's Republican ticket. Men can join in too. On the Huffington Post, the acclaimed author of "The Vagina Monologues" blogs: “I write because I believe we hold this election in our hands. This vote is a vote that will determine the future not just of the U.S., but of the planet. It will determine whether we create policies to save the earth or make it forever uninhabitable for humans. It will determine whether we move...
