Bertie attempts to disarm the paparazzi
Nary a day goes by in the life of a professional patriarchy-blamer but what she is called upon to belch forth her views on sleaze. Mine, congealed here in an easy-to-swallow gelcap, are these: porn is the direct result of misogyny, and also begets misogyny, which makes it a D-FOP ( Double-Fucktarded Ouroboros of Patriarchy), but I do not advocate making it illegal because (a) itâ€™s free speech and (b) too much stuff–pot, flag-burning, sexy cheerleading, taking matches on planes–is illegal as it is.
All of which is by way of introducing the topic of the new Vaginas R Us strip club sign in L.A. Repellent it is, but only in the way that all strip clubs are generally repellent. So why has the sanctimonious local populus gone haywire over it? Why? Apparently because itâ€™s vaginas, not strippers, that people find â€œoffensive.â€ The townsfolk did not, for example, come down with a fit of pruditÃ© when the sign said merely â€œLive Nude Nude Nudes.â€
But shouldnâ€™t the sign really read â€œVulvas R Usâ€?
Addendum: my copy editor neglected to include that I first heard about this at BlondeSense yesterday.
