"as a poor person who has had to use planned parenthood for multiple reasons—i need these bitches to be much more fucking serious about this shit. as in, outraged here for the long hall ready to fight for years if we must outraged. yes, i recognize that going out for drinks and celebrating vagina can very well lead to marching in the streets licking envelopes for hours and leading feminist sit ins—but as we’ve seen the past few years in femmoland—going out for drinks only very rarely goes much deeper than “EVERYBODY iS INVITED.”
and my bitch ass needs us to go deep. waaaay fucking deep. as in “why are we trying to shut down clinics that provide abortions during the depths of the endless fucking michigan recession we’ve all been sitting in for decades?” deep. as in, “why is the control of “what a woman is” and “what a woman can do” all of a sudden so important for a state that people want to “let die” and that obama has centered as the cornerstone of his “recovery” project?” deep. deep as in, “why do the fucking white christians who have more money than anybody else in the state get to decide what’s best for all the poor ass broke folk who can’t manage to get a fucking break” deep."
Thank you. And before I sound like I’m not glad that we’re talking about this, or that I’m not excited (if mildly conflicted) that Eve Ensler will be performing The Vagina Monologues with Michigan women lawmakers at the Capitol next week, I just want to stress, as many times as I have to, that if we’re going to air our grievances, if we’re going to yell and scream and shout the word “vagina,” if we’re going to make a big event out of empowering ourselves—we have to do something with that empowerment. Very soon it will be time (if it’s not time already) to outline what the fuck we need to do and then fucking do it.
i had not heard about eve ensler.

Okay. How old are we. Seriously, are we in 5th grade? You can’t hear a woman talk about vaginas because it’s too VULGAR? No right, because a part of the anatomy of half of the population is vulgar. Not to be discussed in “mixed company,” was it? So you can’t TALK about it but you can make LAWS about it. Are you fucking kidding me??????
