  • Women's College Dropping Vagina Monologues

    ...because it doesn't include the Transgendered.

    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 cannot simply be reduced to biological or anatomical distinctions, and many of us who have participated in the show have grown increasingly uncomfortable presenting material that is inherently reductionist and exclusive.”

    Murphy also said the play has problems with class, race and “other identities.”
    Campus Reform’s Yvonne Dean-Bailey reports the play will be replaced by a collection of student monologues — similar to those in “Vagina Monologues” — but that includes selections that are trans-inclusive.
    For those keeping track, Mount Holyoke — again, an all-women's college — recently expanded its admissions policy to accept applications from transgender students.

    Man, if I was 18 and had the cash, I'd tell them I felt like a woman trapped in man's body just so I could live in a female dorm. I'd spend a lot of time in the shower room trying to make sense of my identity crisis. It might be something to explore when I retire.

      You KNOW I'm mad, when I actually get on my computer to reply. It just ended up, though, that I wrote a long-winded reply that I couldn't get through without swearing, and decided that nobody cares. Until next time!
