    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    NBC apologises for Jane Fonda's offensive word Fri Feb 15, 2008 12:38am GMT LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Television network NBC apologized for itself and actress Jane Fonda on Thursday after she used an offensive word on the "Today Show." NBC called it "a slip" and said they did not mean to offend audiences. Fonda was on the program on Thursday with playwright Eve Ensler to discuss Ensler's award-winning work, "The Vagina Monologues," in which women talk about their sexuality using frank language about their bodies and references to genitalia. "Vagina Monologues" has spawned a movement called V-Day that aims to...

To publicize the event, the group produced a print ad for placement in the Seattle Times, among other publications. But, much to the group's chagrin, the Times declined to run it unless the sponsors altered the artwork (pictured above) — which they refused to do.

The honor students, Megan Reback, Elan Stahl and Hannah Levinson, included the word during their reading of "The Vagina Monologues" because, "It wasn't crude and it wasn't inappropriate and it was very real and very pure," Reback said. Their defiant stand is being applauded by the play's author, who said Tuesday that the school should be celebrating, rather than punishing, the three juniors. "Don't we want our...

The marquis for Atlantic Theaters advertises a number of plays including, the Masquerade Ball, Band Jam, and now The Hoohaa Monologues. Some said hoohaa is a strange word and that its definition depends on its context, while others said it sounds like a country band. However, it's not a band at all. In fact, most people know hoohah by a different name -- vagina. "We...

They claim the restrictions placed against them are part of a larger suppression of free speech on campus. "It just seems like the campus is afraid of free speech and the administration wants to do whatever is necessary to avoid bad publicity for the college," said Thomas Lincoln, a member of the College Republicans.

The Monologues is an obscene, sometimes pornographic “celebration” of women’s sexuality that focuses on lesbian sexual experiences and masturbation. The play encourages the use of vulgar and explicit sexual language, and glorifies the lesbian seduction of a young girl. The CNS contacted 29 Catholic colleges this year...

    South Bend Tribune ^ | February 17, 2005 | Rev. John M. D'Arcy
    The Rev. John M. D'Arcy, bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend diocese of the Catholic Church, released the following statement regarding the production of "The Vagina Monologues" at The University of Notre Dame. It has been customary at this time of the year for many institutions of higher learning, including, regrettably, Catholic institutions, to present something called "The Vagina Monologues." Alas, even our beloved University of Notre Dame is presenting it again, as it has for the past several years, under the official sponsorship of three departments. The bishop is the teacher within his diocese, bearing special responsibility before God...

    Young America's Foundation ^ | August 25, 2004 | Christina Hoff Sommers
    The following lecture by Christina Hoff Sommers was delivered on August 3, 2004 at the Young America's Foundation 26th Annual National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, DC. (The text that follows contains adult language and themes and is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised). Several years ago, a radical feminist philosopher visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she gave a lecture attacking what she called “male science.” This theorist confidently explained that science was part of a discredited oppressive, patriarchal, white-male, bourgeois legacy. It was tainted to the core by sexism, classicism, and racism. Women, she...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Monday, September 27, 2004 | Jennifer Nelson
    Is it me, or have the feminists in this country completely gone off their rockers? Jane Fonda was recently in New York at a star-studded event designed to increase voter registration for women. The occasion? The "Vaginas Vote, Chicks Rock" gala at the Apollo Theater, which was billed as "a night of entertainment and political empowerment." Are you kidding? "Vaginas vote"? First off, how messy would that be? We'd definitely have to have male and female lines at the polls. And if the wait were anything like the one for the women's restrooms at any ballpark in America, that alone...

    AMHERST - Support for next month's student production of ''The Vagina Monologues'' outweighed dissent among members of the community at Tuesday's Amherst-Pelham Regional School Committee meeting. About 40 residents, parents and faculty members from the high school attended the public comment portion of the meeting. Faculty supporters of the student production advised students to avoid the meeting because of its potential for controversy. Written by Eve Ensler, ''The Vagina Monologues'' is a series of short scenes based on her interviews with more than 200 women around the globe. The play, to be performed Feb. 13 at the high school, will...
