Women Gone Mad (as in Nuts, Crazy, Loony, Need a Lobotomy)

Mike S. Adams: My sexual harassment complaint

Where exactly do these women come from? I don't know and to be honest don't know any women like this. The double standard exhibited with this email is staggering. If a heterosexual male had written this email replacing the female body references with male body references the student would be expelled. I thought that nutty young women went the way of Germain Greer! This email is positively bizarre. I mean the girl talks about her internal body organs like it's a person, in fact her. This is just too weird.

Here's the email:

Subject: My Vagina's Very Mad at You

Dr. Dr. (sic) Adams

'Vagina' and 'C***' are just words. The purpose of the Vagina Monologues is to unite women in a society which, from your article is obviously still 'male' centered. I can't believe that you are a professor of criminal justice and you yourself can't understand what the Vagina Monologues does for women, specifically women who have been victims of rape and other sexual violence. It's people like you who make it so hard for women to except their bodies. The point of Eve Ensler's book is to expose a subject that women have always had to cover up, our vaginas, our logos. Vaginas are a place of pleasure and pain. So many women hate their vaginas and ultimately themselves from experiences of rape and sexual violence. I read your article and was absolutely shocked. Is this the first time you have heard of the VM? I mean it has been around, around UNCW for that matter, for several years. We didn't make this stuff up. It was written by Eve Ensler!!! Read it before you start making accusations. And for that matter, I'll have you know that President Bush wasn't even mentioned once during any of our meetings. We don't have a political agenda in presenting the VMs. The only Bush discussed in this play were our own!!! Also, people talk about men and their penises all the time. Like when a man 'thinks with his other head' (I think you must because for someone with a PhD, you sure do have (sic) closed mind)

I would like you to know that I'm the girl who performed the 'Vagina Workshop'. If you came to see it, I was the woman parading around in the Tutu. You see, I'm proud to have been a part of this performance and what it does for women. I'm not a bra burning, anti-Bush feminist. Actually I'm not even a Democrat. I support the President, (sic) I support my country totally for that matter. What I don't support is people who don't support women. My vagina could care less about politics; all it wants is to not be raped and be treated kindly. I know that you must know that 1 in 4 women will be victims of sexual violence. Also, bringing religion into this is just so, so wrong. If people are offended because of a word that explains a body part, that is their own problem. I'm a Religion major and I have not once come across a passage in the Bible that states 'Thou shalt not write or speak the words Vagina, P****, and C***!' I think that Jesus would embrace a play whose purpose was to STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN !!!!!!!!! Even if it does talk about SEX.

So, please try to embrace the VMs and not bash it. It's a good thing, its (sic) not anti-religious, anti-Bush, or anti-male, it's just anti-rape and anti-hate. As Eve Ensler states 'Until the Violence Stops'

Rebecca Raab"

So, if I'm to understand this correctly, if I believe the play VM is a stupid display then I'm anti-women. Right? That seems to be what this deranged young woman is saying. Hmmm. Mike Adams' response is great with a touch of humor.
