Don’t Talk About Vagina

Clearly, I think feminism is beautiful. I find nothing sexier than when am man calls himself a feminist. Feminism, again, is about equal rights for human beings. How can that be wrong?

Well, it’s wrong in most of the world but in China, they are illustrating it. Here in the States from time to time we get loud mouth misogynists telling girls to stop “burning bras and shave” cause that’s what a feminist is to these ignorant dweebs.

In China College students at China’s Beijing Foreign Studies University participated in a social media ‘experiment’. I’m calling it that, they are not. To me it’s an experiment in what people are willing to accept. They are not willing to accept women taking control of their bodies and sexuality…in 2013…that’s not acceptable.

Women posted pictures of themselves holding up signs describing what their vaginas would say if they could talk, to promote an upcoming performance of The Vagina Monologues. This is a promotion…for a play…about talking vaginas. Well, the vagina’s don’t talk but the story is about the vagina…it’s a vagina “If These Walls Could Talk”….the walls of my vagina…I digress.

So, they posted a picture like the one above, in order to “rediscover the power within our bodies and spirit,” according to the students. The pictures made the rounds on social and these are some of the responses:

“If no one told me they are from BFSU, I would think they are whores.”

“What are we teaching in our schools? Are they the future of our country? They are a bunch of sluts. I feel so much pain for how far the Chinese civilization has fallen.”

“May I ask who is prepared to marry these feminists?”

That’s right, saying you have control over a part of your body and what goes in it makes you a whore. It makes you unattractive, it brings down your country and no one will marry you. What a sad display.

Little Girls Are The Devil

Let’s travel to Locust Grove, GA where men are animals and girls are problems. Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself but I’m really pissed about this story. Maddy is an eleven-year-old girl who loves to play football. She’s pretty good at it too; she even made it on her school team. Last season she had four sacks, all of her teammates and coaches wanted her back for next season saying she’s one of the better defensive players…but Maddy won’t be coming back. Maddy is banned from playing football because “boys might start lusting after her”. That’s right, because boys might have impure thoughts Maddy is not allowed to partake in something she loves—or as she put it, “It’s like taking my dream and throwing it in the trash.” Sure, let’s just get rid of the girl—let’s not teach boys that they need to control themselves and have respect for women, or teach them that their every little desire does not need to be fulfilled. God forbid we teach young boys self-control—just get rid of the evil vagina. Oh, I should probably mention that this is a Christian school so clearly sex and the female form is the WORST thing in the world. Really, a vagina is the destroyer of the Universe. I sort of covered this topic in my “Men Aren’t Animals” piece but this now illustrates that point so I’m revisiting it.
Athletic Director Phil Roberts e-mailed 11Alive News a statement saying, “Our official policy is that middle school girls play girl sports and middle school boys play boy sports.” Football is a boys sport—girls don’t play football in the NHL do they? Nope. Girls play with girls and boys play with boys. That is actually a semi-understanable stance when you put it under the guise of “girls can get hurt—these boys don’t know their strength and football is a contact sport” but that’s not the truth. It’s not that “girls play with girls and boys play with boys”. In a closed door meeting with Maddy’s mom, Mr. Roberts had this to say, “In the meeting with the CEO of the school, I was told that the reasons behind it were, one, that the boys were going to start lusting after her, and have impure thoughts about her. And that locker room talk was not appropriate for a female to hear, even though she had a separate locker room from the boys.”
Let me tell Mr. Roberts something—it doesn’t matter if Maddy is on the field playing a game she lvoes and excels at—the boys will still have impure thoughts about her. Want to know why? It’s because they’re 12-year –old boys. They have impure thoughts about everything. They have so many hormones raging through them that anything is sexy. But that doesn’t mean they do anything about it. So why does Maddy have to be banned? Is it because we don’t trust boys to not attack her? Is it because she’s not as tough? She’s just a little girl—she can’t hear bad talk?
Give me a f***ing break. This is the biggest pile of crap I have ever heard. You want to know why we have a rape culture? This is why. We never teach boys that it’s fine to think things—but you don’t always get to do them. We just rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic. “Girls are dirty, girls are to subservient, girls do what men tell them to”. Shame on them.

A Big Win For A Little Girl

How much do kids know about themselves? You always talk about “self-discovery” in terms of teenagers. “Oh, don’t mind her—she’s just discovering who she is”. But, if you ask a LGBT kid when they knew—they usually say something like, “I always knew.” Maybe kids know more than we give them credit for.

 

Coy Mathis is a regular 6-year-old little girl. She likes dresses, her long hair, flowers. She’s a girly girl—but she was born a boy. In August of 2011 Coy was enrolled in kindergarten as a boy; but Coy insisted she was a girl. Her parents and teachers didn’t understand and therefore didn’t believe her—this led to Coy suffering from depression and anxiety that affected her ability to learn. Steven Chavez, the division director of Fountain-Fort Carson School District noticed this along with her parents and together they took action.

 

Coy began living as a little girl. Her depression, anxiety, and grades all improved. However, some people began to take issue with the fact that Coy was born a boy—but was using the little girl’s restroom, so they banned her from using it. That’s right, instead of letting a girl use the bathroom they want her to use a staff restroom or a gender-neutral facility in the school’s medical office. Can you imagine how terrifying it is to be 6-years-old and feel like you’re in the wrong body? Then to be told you can’t live in a way that makes it a little easier to handle? Instead you are forced to face the body that you don’t belong in? You are singled out…you can’t use the bathroom like everyone else you have to walk to the medical office because you’re “special”. Not okay.  Coy’s parent’s didn’t think it was okay either so they pulled her from the school and filed a civil suit.

 

The Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled that that is too much for a 6-year-old and Coy can use the little girl’s room whenever she wants. Chavez said that by keeping Coy from using that restroom the school “creates an environment rife with harassment.” He also said the school district showed “a lack of understanding of the complexity of transgender issues” by referring to Coy as a male or using quotes around “her” throughout the litigation. Preach. “All we ever wanted was for Coy’s school to treat her the same as other little girls. We are extremely happy that she now will be treated equally,” Kathryn Mathis, Coy’s mother, said in statement. I couldn’t agree more.

Men Are Not Animals (Opinion)

It’s a common saying that “men are animals”. We say this when men cheat, when men act in a disgusting way, when men don’t control themselves. But lately I’ve been wondering if we do men a disservice by saying this.

We are all animals. We all come from the animal kingdom. We have evolved. I think it’s unfair to just say, “oh men are animals”. I think it gives them an excuse or a pass to behave badly. It’s like saying “they can’t do better.” But they most certainly can do better and many men do.

I have had the privilege of seeing both sides. I have suffered at the hands of men—I have seen the worst of men. For a long time I was scared because of what men did to me. I saw, what I thought was a great man, turn to a horrible man, I was lucky enough to have another great man pick up where that horrible man left off, and because of him I now I have seen a little boy grow into a man.
I’ve watched struggles and growth and pain and suffering and let me tell you—men are not animals. Men are humans. If you give anyone a pass to behave badly they will. If you give anyone the excuse to not try to exceed expectations—they won’t.
I’m sick of hearing people say, “that’s men for ya” or some form of that saying. Men—this country was built by great, flawed me. Some of the best books were written by genius men, discoveries were made, countries were grown, and children were raised. I would love to see an iguana do that—since men are just animals.
Men—like women, are subject to what is thought about them. If you think little of something or someone why would they ever strive to prove you wrong? Yet, if you look around you—every day men, like women, are fighting a battle for equal rights. The right to be a stay at home dad, the right to be a man even though women are leading the charge as bread winners, the right to be an equal partner, the right to be a feminist, the right to be more than an animal.
