Cunts need to be visible. I have a suggestion for how to do this but first I want to acknowledge what inspired this blog. Labiaplasty is fast becoming the most popular surgery for young women. It's no worse than breast implants or a nose job or a face lift as a cosmetic procedure per se but what is concerning is it's popularity and why.
Carlin noted in her blog this week that CBS is completely comfortable covering labiplasty were women willing mutilate their vulvas but they find the word clitoris too obscene to be spoken in the context of sexual pleasure. It is the only way women can achieve orgasm and yet we are not allowed to speak it's name in the public domain? What the fuck?
Carlin also got her vulva on national TV in Norway recently for the first time ever in the global history of the tube. Not just Carlin's vulva but any vulva. A tonne of penis on the same show but the vulva gets all the crazy sex negative woman hating feedback. People are scared of cunts. This fear is insidious and makes our media suppress postive images of natural cunts loved by their owners. Every woman who has grown up with cunt shame can be cured quickly by seeing other women's natural cunts. It is because they are hidden behind our clothes, behind our media's censorship, behind our sex negative cultures shaming of female sexuality, behind a fear of cunts that millions of pubescent girls are out there now considering elective genital mutilation.
Here in Australia even if a woman does do a nude photoshoot with natural vulva her inner labia will be digitally removed in photoshop because they are considered by the Australian Censorship board to be obscene. This video explains it all
During filming of The BodySex Workshop Carlin was carrying one of Betty's artworks, a beautiful sketch of a woman masturbating, vulva on full show, clitoris prominent. It caused a buzz everywhere it went. People loved it and couldn't take their eyes away. The world is starved of happy cunt imagery. Well here's a start. Anyone who is close to an adolescent female should buy her The Cunt Colouring Book for X-mas (as an atheist I pronounce this kissmass) this year. However surely we can do more. How can we circumvent the cunt blackout in the media? Well the Wall of Vagina art project was a great idea.
I am suggesting a grassroots fight. Lets take this shit to the streets. Take a photo of your cunts, turn it into a graffiti stencil and spray paint cunts far and wide at every reasonable opportunity. Alternatively just get said photo printed en masse at you local kinko on sticky backed paper and stick it whereever you can. On the back of toilet doors in the ladies at your local bar, restaurant, cafe, cinema is a good place. You have a captive audience staring straight ahead for many minutes whilst they sit on the can. Fuck, if you're brave enough get a t-shirt printed with said photos and wear it down the street with a catchy slogan like "cunt is not a bad word" written across it. Lets do it!
Viva le VULVA!
