Many years ago, a friend of mine asked if I wanted to attend a theatrical play called, The Vagina Monologues.
At the time, I was still completely repressing my mother’s sexual abuse of me.
The sexual abuse was beginning to surface, but only in subtle ways. Yet, I cringed at the title of the play, and politely said “no thank you.”
At the time, this friend was fully aware that my father sexually abused me so she pressed a little, “but it’s about sexual abuse” she told me.
I still declined, because the title alone was unappealing, and even offensive to me, not only as someone who was repressing sexual abuse by a woman, but offensive to me as a human being.
I am so grateful that I trusted my instincts, because if I had attended the play, I would have experienced some seriously debilitating physical and psychological turmoil, during the play, and for a number of weeks afterwards.
“All they need to do is produce a young person whose “narrative” is that he or she rather enjoys being the sexual plaything of someone four or five times his or her age, and that’s the end of it. That’s the “narrative,” and you can’t trample on anybody’s narrative.” ~J.R. Dunn, American Thinker
What narrative is Dunn referring to? Grace Dunham’s public statement that what her sister, Lena Dunham, did to her for ten years was not harmful to Grace.
The very sad paradox in Grace’s proclamation is that she is openly a lesbian, and may very well be gay because of Lena’s sexual aggression, abuse, and psychological manipulation of Grace –who is seven years younger than Lena.
Grace, and her sister Lena, have even joked about “making Grace gay.”
Uncomfortable truths are often covered up with humor.
Dunn is also referring to the normalization –in fact, propelling– of female-female child sexual abuse.
The Vagina Monologues was created by Eve Ensler, a bi-sexual woman, who placed a scene in the play called, “The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could.”
In the skit, a 24-year-old woman seduces a 13-year-old girl with alcohol, and then sexually molests her. By moral and criminal law, this constitutes rape.
However, in the play, the little girl declares:
“Now people say it was a kind of rape … Well, I say if it was rape, it was a good rape…”
After concerned individuals complained, the reference to “good rape” was stopped in some performances of the play, but the so-called ‘positive’ experience of a young girl being seduced and sexually abused by a grown woman, remains the theme.
In the play, the little girl raves about her orgasm (an orgasm brought on, during an act of child sexual abuse). The child proclaims in the play, “she gently and slowly lays me out on the bed”… “I’ll never need to rely on a man.”
In the updated versions of the play (also due to complaints by the public), the 13 year-old girl was changed to a 16 year-old. However, even a sixteen year-old girl does not have the discrimination to make rational decisions when seduced and manipulated by an older woman who, by age alone, is an authority figure to the girl, and usually someone the victim trusts or looks up to.
The suggestion that female-female sexual abuse is “good” for the child, and not sexual abuse at all, is made quite clear in this play.
The Vagina Monologues encourages the disturbing belief that if a woman sexually molests a female child, it’s okay, and even good for the little girl.
The play is presented nationwide, every year on Valentine’s Day, a day which symbolizes Love, devotion, self-sacrifice, courtship, and romance. The Vagina Monologues have devalued what true Love is, by advertising the play as “V” Day, as in “vagina.”
The play consists of numerous monologues read by many different actresses, with each of the monologues addressing varying aspects of female experiences, like sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, and orgasm.
The recurring theme of the play is that the vagina is a tool of female empowerment, and ‘the ultimate embodiment of individuality’ and the play goes into tampons and tools used in OBGYN exams, and even considers the word “cunt” to be positive.
Supporters of the play praise its fund-raising abilities, and that it will help “end violence against women.”
Apparently, the creator of the play, those who act in it, and its supporters, have no intellectual understanding of the fact that it is not just men who inflict violence on women, and that female-female child sexual abuse, has a strong propensity to cause serious, life-altering and debilitating psychological and physical problems in the victim –including sexual identity and sexual dysfunction issues.
In Lean Dunham’s book, Not That Kind of Girl, Lena openly reveals –as if she is proud of herself—of having “pried open” her baby sister’s vagina to look inside, and that she psychologically manipulated the child into laying on her for Lena’s gratification, and Lena joyfully proclaimed how she masturbated next to her ten year old sister in bed many times when Lena was 17 –nearly an adult.
Lena also told Rolling Stone Magazine that when she was 12 or 13, and her sister was FIVE, she used to “force” the child to “make-out” with her.
As an adult, Lena posted a brazen photo of the sexualization of a her little five year-old sister on the Internet, as a sex toy, and one of Lena straddling the child on a bed.
Lena Dunham has created the idea that Child-on-Child sexual abuse, perpetrated between a female abuser and a female child, causes no harm, and should in fact be celebrated –and maybe even practiced among sisters.
The Vagina Monologues projects the same message –that it’s good for a stranger female to perpetrate sexual abuse on a young teenage girl –and not only “good” but a superior way for a young child to be brought to orgasm.
I am certain that Kristen Cunnane would have a lot to say about The Vagina Monologues.
Kristen Cunnane was psychologically tormented and sexually abused by her favorite teacher, Julie Correa, who taught physical education and coached the girl’s sports teams at Kristen’s upscale suburban school in the mid 1990’s.
Julie Correa was a young married woman in her mid-20s. Kristen was a 14 year-old girl, who trusted Correa, and looked up to her.
Julie molested the teenage girl, over a course of months, and would go so far as to sneak into Kristen’s home when Kristen was out with her mother.
Julie would hide in Kristen’s bedroom closet, and then molest the teen girl when she arrived home and walked into her bedroom.
For Julie Correa to hide in Kristen’s closet is highly disturbing, and it demonstrates that women can be more psychologically deviant than men in their sexual violation of a child.
The Vagina Monologues, is alarming on multiple levels.
The play not only promotes child molestation when both the abuser and child are female, but it pushes the idea that women don’t even need men –that they should become lesbians.
The play also annihilates the beautiful concept of Valentine’s Day, and degenerates it into a day for the celebration of lesbians, child abuse, vaginas, and feminism.
The play normalizes child sexual molestation perpetrated by a woman, and undoubtedly, drives the idea that adult/child sex should be made legal.
There is evidence of a female version of NAMBLA (The pro-pedophilia “North American Man-Boy Love Association”), called NAWGLA.
In addition, and not surprising, is that RAINN (Rape Abuse & Incest National Network) not only publicly encourages Lena Dunham, they also promote The Vagina Monologues.
The word “feminist” derives from the root meaning, “feminine,” which means “of the female sex,” “she who suckles,” or “having qualities considered appropriate to a woman.”
The advocacy of women’s rights, which is what “feminism” was founded on –the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men– has been completely thwarted into a grotesque, reptilian-like group of individuals who, in no way, resemble the feminine persona, what a woman stands for, or what her role is on earth.
Women, by nature, are supposed to be the protectors of children, not the abusers of them.
Throughout time, females have been counted on to retain compassion, dignity, and the right for life to exist. It is women who have been given the sole right to nurse a child, and who have been looked to for comforting victims, and are the only gender to be able to give birth to a child.
Feminism, is not about empowering women. Feminism -as it stands- has nothing to do with women’s rights, equal pay, or political, social and economic equality to men.
There is nothing empowering about ‘talking vaginas,’ the degradation of women, the physical and emotional power of sexually abusing a child, the normalization of same-sex sexual acts, or the purposeful degradation of men.
It is not empowering for a woman to discuss her vagina, or sit naked on a toilet for a camera -like Lena Dunham did. It is not empowering for women to be vulgar and downgrade men.
Empowerment of women begins when women stop defending one another, and instead, defend truth, justice, femininity, and children. The empowerment of women begins when women stop believing they are the superior sex (both sexes have good qualities), that they don’t need men, and when they honor the true feminine qualities of grace, compassion, softness, inner beauty, and respect and dignity for all life, and for men.
Powerful women look to the good attributes of men, and admire them, by uplifting men with honor and respect for their goodness, masculinity, and as the defenders of women and children that manhood is supposed to be.
How can women expect a man to be a protector and a guardian of women, if women continue to demoralize men, and make them feel obsolete?
Powerful women do not use, or speak of their bodies in a crass and vulgar manner. They use their bodies as a way to be gentle and powerful simultaneously.
Women were once considered Sacred in this world, but feminism has all but abolished the sanctity of women.
Ultimately, Valentine’s Day, is linked to Saint Valentine.
Saints represent sanctity, holiness, self-sacrifice, and consecration to a place of honor and reverence.
This is what women should strive for –not to be more powerful than men, or to outdo them, or to replace them –but to raise their consciousness to a place where men desire to revere women again.
If women want to end violence against women, then they need to begin by looking at themselves, and their role in how men see them.
It’s no wonder why so many men are full of anger and resentment, and feelings of inadequacy. A lot of women -especially feminists- treat men like crap by degrading them, and by minimizing their important role in life.
Love has respect for both genders, and Love honors the innate qualities in each sex.
There is a movement to have the play performed on every college and university campus in North America. If I were in college, I would have a protest sign made, and would gather as many people as possible, to stand with me outside the theater.
