Who care’s what a vagina has to say. They can’t hear, or see. How does it learn?
There’s a whole mindset behind accepting a play such as “The Vagina Monologues” as some great theatrical experience.
We are supposed to be completely non-judgemental about all of the sexual experiences depicted. We are especially supposed to be completely open about lesbian experiences. After all, to say anything about that is to be making value judgements about homosexuality, and we’re not supposed to do that, according to liberal theology.
We can’t say anything about how graphic this is, because in our modern world, pornography itself is considered an art form. So if you say anything in objection, then you must be some Neanderthal. And you are definitely against women’s rights, because women are supposed to be open about their vaginas. Or some such liberal claptrap.
This play is very popular in colleges. So we are sending a message to college girls that the vagina is the most important part of their body.
And naturally, if anyone says anything, then the liberal line will be that you advocate censorship, if you don’t think this play is appropriate.
This play is objectionable on many levels, but, the liberals have their bases covered so that, if you object, you are anti-woman, living in the past, dislike anything relating to sex, are homophobic, want women to know their place and stay in the kitchen, don’t want women to know about sex matter, etc. etc. I have heard a lot of such insults thrown about by liberals, as they defend this play.
Yes, they have a right to perform this. Whether it is some sort of high art, or great example of theatrical excellence, is another story altogether.
I’m glad to know a number of people who react with revulsion at this play. Even the name was picked to shock us. The whole thing is playing up the shock value of what this play is about.
