More Notre Dame Controversy

'Vagina Monologues' canceled this year!

[Story here] For first time in eight years, Notre Dame students will not perform controversial play

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! First, Notre Dame creates a storm of controversy by inviting the infanticider-in-chief, Barack Obama, to give the commencement address this year. Now, Notre Dame muzzles vagina's First Amendment rights of free speech with this tampon of a decision. Sure! Welcome Obama with open arms, but close your legs to the monologues! you're still going to let the dick talk, aintcha?! Sounds discriminatory to me.


OK, full disclosure. I have never actually seen the vagina monologues (unless you count my friend Jon's Bachelor party many years ago). While my personal preference has always been for vaginas to be seen and not heard, I have never begrudged their right to speak out.

OK, I actually glanced at the article I've already linked and commented on. Apparently, the shows producer states, "we were not forbidden by the University to do the Monologues". Blah, blah, blah...
"What happened was that I, and some other people who have been involved in the past, feel like the "Monologues" are an amazing piece that talks about women's sexuality that can be very productive for Notre Dame students," she said. "But unfortunately, what happens when the "Monologues" are put on, is they turn into more of a scandal than an action piece."
Monologues, Monologues, Monologues. Looks to me like you have an aversion to the V word lady.
"The Vagina Monologues" were first performed at Notre Dame in February 2002 as part of a campaign to raise awareness about violence against women, according to a Feb. 27, 2002 Observer report.
Well what could be MORE violent than the OABOMINATION of abortion, yet ND is awarding Obama with an honorary law degree. Which begs the question in my mind...

Do vaginas use teleprompters?

It does seem just a tad hypocritical to honor the Obamessiah under the guise of respecting all points of view, then shut down a politically-charged bit of student theater (although I have to admit, I saw a video of VM several years back and found it self-impressed and dull).

Well today's topic is a bit puzzling. I can't quite put my finger on it but it seems a touch sticky and smells fishy. Maybe it's just me but if the students want to spread their message I say a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. But that's just my opinion....And I would never be "judgemental" about a chatty you-know- what.

PU- In the old days before "talkies', the "monologues" was a silent flick shown in black and white to organ music and you had to be a lip reader to follow the action. ouch!
Pic Pic- Aunt Flo says no monologues. Period. :)
LCR- I thank yee!

You've really gotten to the heart of the issue DaBlade; if you're going to let one vulva speak, you've opened the door for all the others.
