Seattle Times Takes Issue with Baring Vagina


This month the National Council of Jewish Women, Seattle is co-sponsoring performances for The Vagina Monologues at the Museum of History and Industry.

To promote the show, it put together an ad with a vag-like heart (complete with clit!) and presented it to a passel of publications.

And while papers like JT News and some synagogues had no problem posting the ad hither and yon, the Seattle Times decided to say no. (Some advice: never do that.)

Enter fist-shaking from femme-groups and synagogues alike. Our favourite quote from the article:

[Executive director of the local NCJW chapter] Lauren Simonds says the Times' refusal to run the ad "really goes against what the Vagina Monologues is all about. It just makes [the vagina] more taboo."

Here's an idea: Want to divorce the vagina from a taboo the penis just doesn't share? Bring the fight to the big leagues. Take the doors off bathroom stalls!

Or put the stalls in the middle of the lobby. I don't know about shattering taboos, but it would definitely keep visitors more entertained than a three month old issue of Field & Stream.
