Ten Rules for Managing Your Vagina

8 Aug

SOME IMAGES ARE A BIT RACY – POSSIBLY NSFW

Following Suzanne Moore’s excellent and very informative article for men on how to manage their penises, published in the Guardian, I thought I would do all the ladies a favor and offer some suggestions on how to manage their vaginas.

This is Suzanne, by the way.

Let’s recap Suzanne’s article quickly.  The very definition of delightful, no?

How to Manage Your Penis

 

1.            Don’t take pictures of your penis and don’t share them 

2.            Wash your filthy penis, please

3.            Do not use small appliances on your penis

4.            Do not urinate in public.  Gross!

5.            Don’t forget not to rape anybody with your penis

6.            Do not name your penis

7.            Do not share your penis with other men

8.            Do not decorate your penis

9.            Do not attempt to change the natural shape of your penis

10.          Do not mistake your penis for your brain

Excellent advice, Suzanne.  You really have a handle on the psychology of the average male.  The love just shines through!  A rainbow of affection for a dreary day!

How unfair of you to leave the ladies out, though.  Surely, some vagina love is in order, to complement this Ode to LoveRockets?

Let me help you out.  Here are Ten Rules to Manage Your Vagina.

1.            Don’t take pictures of your vagina and don’t share them 

And if you plan to ignore this excellent advice, try to find out whether the recipient of your largess would care to see your vagina in the first place.  Don’t be this girl, sexting members of her high school lacrosse team, who didn’t particularly care to go visually spelunking through the lady cave of their friend, and had her, oops!  Expelled!

http://jezebel.com/girl-sends-sext-gets-kicked-out-of-school-lacrosse-pl-471285308

See?  Bad things can happen if you sext your muffin to guys who have already had lunch, thanks.

Never worry, though.  You have Feminists™ to come to your defence and wonder why the BOYS didn’t get expelled for failing to worship the Kodak Yoni.

calvin

Ha ha!  Silly vagina owner.  Not everyone wants to see it.  Keep in it your Calvin Kleins.

Oh, oops. My bad.  She only sent pictures of her boobies.  No naughtybit shots. Well, let’s try this one, then.  Let’s try all of these!

http://jezebel.com/5057511/revenge-porn-hard-to-prosecute-harder-on-the-psyche

You see, ladies, when you take explicit pictures of your naked body and send them to people, they are no longer your private property, and if you happen to go full bore cunt on the lucky recipient, plan on seeing your bits plastered far and wide on the internet.

Oh, boo hoo.  You want to shame, humiliate, mock, deride and snicker at MEN who have made the mistake of sharing their XXX camera roll, but when it happens to YOU, that’s a felony?

http://www.salon.com/2013/04/07/criminalizing_revenge_porn/

Bullshit.

pot

Pot, let me introduce you to kettle.

There is one surefire way for BOTH men and women to ensure they are not publicly exposed by their own selfies – don’t take them.  If you can’t abide that, then accept you are taking a risk.  YOU took the shot!  YOU pressed send.

And you will face whatever consequences there are as a result of YOUR own decisions.  Welcome to being a grown-up.

2.            Wash your filthy vagina, please

Sweaty, bloody, occasionally yeasty, and dripping wet when aroused – ladies, please take some steps to keep your vagina clean.  You know, a daily shower should do it.  A bit of hygiene after a loo run.

blood

You know, Suzanne, this is just gross.  Any attempt to make genitals seem dirty and filthy by the simple act of being genitals reeks of some pretty serious psychological disturbance, to me.  There is even a name for it – a bunch of names, actually.

phobia

Phallophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of a penis, especially if it’s erect.   Those who suffer from this phobia are afraid to look at or touch a penis.  This even includes pictures of penises.  Phallophobia is similar to Medorthophobia, the fear of an erect penis and Ithyphallophobia, the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.

Now, spiders I can understand. Spiders are terrible.  Really, really awful.

spider

But penises?

I really think you need to look into whatever is causing you to believe male genitals are dirty, Suzanne.  It’s kind of not very normal.

3.            Do not use small appliances on your vagina

Especially not any of these small appliances!

vibrators

Holy Joy Nazi!  Welcome to Suzanne’s world.  The Mayor of NoFunsVille herself.  I think Suzanne should begin an immediate program of applying a LOT of small appliances to her vagina. Okay, technically, not her vagina.  But let’s not get fussed.  It’s in the ballpark. She’ll figure it out. She might feel a lot better, too.

4.            Do not urinate in public.  Gross!

Nuff said.

5.            Don’t forget not to rape anybody with your vagina

top

And while you’re at it, try to remember not to accuse people of raping you with their penis when that isn’t true. It’s a very nasty thing to do. And after you do it, oh, eleven times or so, you might even go to jail.  I guess the message is that ONE or TWO accusations is okay, but don’t get carried away with it.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2284677/Compulsive-liar-Elizabeth-Jones-cried-rape-11-times-jailed.html

Now, now. Don’t get hysterical. I’m not saying NO false accusations.  Moderation, ladies!  Just a little restraint.

6.            Do not name your vagina

hand

Enough with the “Ladybits” and “Pandora’s Box” and “Honeypot” nonsense.  Vagina.  There is nothing wrong with the word vagina. Needing to name your “Midnight Garden” is just immature and off-putting.

http://jezebel.com/5927490/honeypot-flaps-twat-nicknaming-a-vagina-is-tricky-business

Grow up fellow “Yorkshire Pudding” owners!

7.            Do not share your vagina with other women

flag

Uhm, I don’t even know what to do with this one.  Throw in homophobia as a bit of satire?  For what purpose? To highlight the fact that Suzanne’s entire article is a steaming pile of hateful bile?

Well, okay.  I personally don’t care who you issue entrance passes to, but we can play along.

No dykes!  No sharing your vagina with other women!

8.            Do not decorate your vagina

jazzle

No grooming! And vajazzling? Forget it.  No piercing, tattooing or accessorizing.

9.            Do not attempt to change the natural shape of your vagina

Obviously, actual mutilation during childhood is utterly forbidden. For vaginas.  Penises we don’t care much about.  Mutilating baby boys is okie-dokie, but once that initial butchery is done, never, ever try any other enhancements.

boy

Ladies, stop doing those Kegels this instant.  Nobody cares about a tight vagina anyways. And no post-birth reconstructive surgeries, either.  No rejuvenations!  Fourth degree tearing during a particularly tough labor?  Too bad!

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/25/us-usa-health-gynecology-idUSBRE87O05520120825?feedType=RSS&feedName=domesticNews

10.          Do not mistake your vagina for your brain

This will be the tough one.  Stop thinking with your crotches, ladies.  There is more to life than cultivating your LadyGarden.  More to your existence than ploughing the fields and planting seeds.  Of course, if you forgo planting, you will probably starve, but that’s neither here nor there.

More of everything we need, no?

In a way, Suzanne’s article is very instructive. The denigration of men and their filthy, rapey minds and penises used to be rather subtle. A little unpacking was in order.  That is no longer true.  If you look at the comments at the Guardian, even average readers seem to be able to detect the scent of desperation.  The rhetoric against men is escalating because the fog is slowly lifting.

How much longer will the Guardian, and other news sources be able to get away with this campaign?  Yesterday’s discussion was kind of interesting.  Is critiquing Cathy Young fair? Does she have a legitimate complaint that the rhetoric of those who speak out in favor of human rights for everyone is just a bit too aggressive, crass, brash, antagonistic?

Maybe?

Complaining about dirty penises in a national newspaper hardly fits the bill for polite, civil conversation, if you ask me.

Maybe we are a bit crass.  A bit belligerent.  A bit over the top.  So what?

maggie

We were told our campaign wasn’t sufficiently slick. We regard that as a compliment.

Fuck all the slick campaigns.  Dirty fights are dirty.

And there’s nothing wrong with getting a little dirty now and then.

Lots of love,

    What unhealthy attitude? They’re not attacking women or getting involved. Quite the contrary, they’re simply saying “I’m out, I’ve got better things to do with my life”. My experience is that people who criticize MGTOW are simply afraid that if too many men take that path, they will lose precious labor and protection.

    From the MGTOW site:

    “… as a man I will not surrender my will to the social expectations of women and society, because both have become hostile against masculinity.”

    They say “women” and not “feminists”. Are they using them interchangeably? Maybe I’m misunderstanding this, but it sounds like there is hostility misplaced here. I can understand why that is, but it doesn’t make it right.

    The quote used in that cracked article makes me cringe, as well.

    “Women’s only appeal is in their sexuality, other than that they have nothing to offer.”

    Although that may very well be the article’s author mining for quotes.

    Don’t get me wrong – if guys want to detach from their societal obligations, then more power to them. I support them in that, and believe that if women are being released from their gender roles then men should be as well.

    Maybe I’m getting hung up on semantics. I don’t know MGTOW very well, so my reservations could be coming from ignorance.

    No, it should read women. You can claim NAWAL, but women, in general, just as society, in general, have become hostile against masculinity. The handful of women who don’t can’t negate that fact. Remember that, as a woman, the only thing preventing you from screwing over a man is your conscience, don’t be surprised if some men are cautious.

    As for the second quote, it does indeed sound harsh and is an exaggeration, but think of it like this: in the age of outsourced services like food preparation, cleaning, gardening, what can a woman offer a man beyond sexuality? Before anyone screams something about objectification, sexuality also includes sexual companionship, i.e. having someone be the target of your romantic emotions. But that’s it, for everything else, men can either do it themselves or pay someone to do it for them. This is the objective truth, not an insult or attack, though I’m sure more often than not, it is expressed with justified anger.

    MGTOW is simply the designation given to men who are neither interested in practicing game to get the upper hand in their relationship with women, nor hoping to go with the flow. They understand the rules but don’t want to play the game.

    The main misunderstand of MGTOW is that it’s an effect, not a “cause”. Most MGTOWs were rejected by women in general as the hypergamy dial was cranked up to 11 starting in the 1980’s. The rest of us just looked at what happened to our peers who did get married and between getting destroyed by divorce, or the wife gaining 200 lbs, decided that was not how we wanted to end up.

    I had never even heard the term MGTOW until last year, but have pretty much been one all my life. The internet gives guys like me the sense that there’s a movement due to how the internet can bring people with different interests together in a way that can seem like a movement, but is really an effect.

    That is actually good. They think that MGTOW is about fearing female sexuality and promiscuity. Like if MGTOWS were new freudians or something like that.
    It is anot at all about that, and we know it. It is just about NOT marrying, no procreating, having sex with whores, keeping your money for you, traveling, go to live to extremely cheap countries with LOTS of women, like Georgia, and having company from a dog.

    And they are going to fight with all their strenth against that. First , they have to take prostitution and ban it, like in Sweden. Without that target, they are lost. They fear the “competency” so much. So, I guess a lot of “john shaming” for the next months.
    Next, they will go for the dogs. They have to ban the dogs.
    Then, they will encouare “paternal instincts” in men. And we will have a lot of “childfree men shaming”.
    Then, they will classified Georgia like a country of the “Axis of Evil”.

    Men Going THEIR OWN Way. It’s not monolithic. While a few self proclaimed MGTOW foolishly attempt to dictate the terms of the concept – qualifications, exclusions,etc – those few are missing the entire point, which is independence and freedom. “Rules for MGTOW” is an oxymoron;

    To go one’s own way is to choose ones own consequences, and act accordingly. It is not to evade all consequences of any sort, it is to avoid specific probable consequences by not taking the actions that can/will lead to those consequences.

    Beyond that, it’s ridiculous to pigeonhole MGTOW. They cannot be pegged as a bunch of woman-haters, anarchists, Aspies, hedonists, hermits, or anything else. They are simply men who apply cost/benefit analyses to their options, and live according to the benefits they want and the costs they are willing to pay for those benefits.

    Comparing the radfems to MGTOW is like comparing the WBC to the Amish, and shows a profound ignorance of the dynamics. The former want to change society to their liking, while the latter want to dissociate themselves from it and be left alone. Why do you care what they think? Could it be that you have a lot to loose if enough men choose to MGTOW, and you are terrified at the prospect? You should know by now that shaming won’t work.

    [I posted this with 2 links of examples but it got stuck in mod so here it is without links.]

    “Now it seems, that the word “feminism” is in disgrace in USA. 70% of the females call themselves “antifemnist”. It just quite new phenomena. Probably the Manosphere effect.”

    The Manosphere is recent and insignificant. American women have been disassociating from Feminism for decades already.

    I was surprised to find this out myself, many years ago.

    I still struggle to understand it because those same who claim “I’m not a Feminist” always follow with a “but”….

    I don’t see why if they are “butting” about any of the above, they are hesitant to use the F word.

    “I like knowing that my husband or boyfriend cannot legally beat
    me.”

    How typical of feminists to claim credit for laws that were on the books and enforced for centuries. But then feminism is just a lobe of the patriarchal order anyway. Always running back up into Daddy’s lap anytime some man is insufficiently servile and adoring.

    I’m not a feminist, but…

    I appreciate the right to help choose my government representatives…but not all men had the vote Man Woman Myth has a great video about the franchise. Shows men going over the top during WW1 and observes that two thirds of the guys you see getting shot didn’t have the vote either (funny never saw any women there).

    I enjoy the option of wearing pants or shorts if I want
    …me too. Don’t want to wear a skirt as I don’t have the legs for it 🙂

    I’m pleased that I was allowed to learn to read and write
    …at the same time as my brother. Think about it this way did my working class Dad who left school at 14 have more chance of going to university than his bank managers daughter. Silly me my Dad was working class and couldn’t open a bank account. That was why he was paid in cash in a ‘paypacket’ Addressed further down too

    It can be very convenient to control how many babies I want to have…oh if only men had this option too. My 26 year old son has just left home for the first time and I had to bring him up as his mother was an arsehole…his description of her.

    It’s awfully useful to be able to open a bank account and own property in my name
    …where previously the husband opened the bank account for the family and had to suffer the consequences of a spendthrift wife. Men used to go to jail if there wives did not meet their own personal debts. Source is UHM quoted below

    I like knowing that my husband or boyfriend cannot legally beat me
    …even although this was always against the law. Read about treatment of wife beaters in the past at Unknown History of Misandry blog about the guy being lynched in the US as a persistent offender.

    It’s really swell to keep the money that I earn.
    … and not have to contribute to the household expenses coz what is mine is mine and I needz it for shoes and handbags and makeup and clothes.

    Ho hum … same misdirection and misquoting historical fact. Sorry Face take back that you are, in fact, a feminist.

    I’m not a feminist, but…

    I appreciate the right to help choose my government representatives… even though I don’t have to give me life to defend my country for this right.

    I enjoy the option of wearing pants or shorts if I want… even though I like to shame the other gender for wearing dresses and skirts.

    I’m pleased that I was allowed to learn to read and write… and in fact, that the education system is biased in my favor so I have better grades, exclusive scholarships and am not being put on drugs for displaying normal behavior for my gender.

    It can be very convenient to control how many babies I want to have… and make men pay for them.

    It’s awfully useful to be able to open a bank account and own property in my name… so that I get to take what my ex-husband spent a lifetime acquiring when I decide to divorce him.

    I like knowing that my husband or boyfriend cannot legally beat me… I on the other hand can beat and even kill him and escape any kind of punishment.

    It’s really swell to keep the money that I earn… when my ex has his wages garnished of alimony and child support.

    Mgtow is a fine sentiment for those whom it fits. I support the decision to do whatever makes you happy. Chase whatever dream you think will fulfill you, with my blessing.

    Just understand that the hatred of all women inside your movement is coming from your bubble and your blindness to reality, not the truth, nor the actual conditions on the ground. You’re deluded if you think that half of the human race is as abjectly horrible as you pretend they are.

    “MGTOW is simply the designation given to men who are neither interested in practicing game to get the upper hand in their relationship with women, nor hoping to go with the flow. They understand the rules but don’t want to play the game.”

    I that description, I’ve bee a MGTOW all my life. But I don’t believe that women are hostile toward masculinity. Society, sure. But you can’t claim that an entire society is hostile while also specifying a group within that society as also hostile. It’s redundant, and it could indeed be misinterpreted as contempt for women. And given the things MTOWs say about women, I don’t think that’s a misinterpretation.

    And if it is a misinterpretation, then you would be forced to claim that Not All MGTOWS Are Like That, no?

    “… men can either do it themselves or pay someone to do it for them.”

    And women can’t? Couldn’t the exact opposite be said and still be objective truth?

    And trust me, I won’t grill you on objectification, even if you were to mean only that. The notion that objection is inherently wrong bothers me a lot.

    “Why do you care what they think?”

    How much overlap is there MGTOW and MRA? Are people not familiar with Men’s Rights confusing the two? Is this why people think that the MRM is inherently misogynistic?

    I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m asking these questions because I think that MRAs bring up good points. I wouldn’t be here otherwise. But anger and resentment towards women on the part of MGTOW is not a good point, it’s not positive in any way, and it does not make for

    Putting all women in the role of the enemy to rebel against sounds an awful lot like what feminism does with men. I understand that is not the intention of MGTOW, and I also understand that MGTOW does not, at present, advocate for anything on their own. But if MGTOW is negatively impacting the MRM in any way, if there is significant overlap, then that’s why I care.

    How much overlap is there MGTOW and MRA? I don’t know about people, but we can talk about where these things fall in place. A lot of people seem to think that the MRM is somehow an opposite movement to feminism. That’s, in my opinion, not true and very confusing. Feminism is primarily an ideology, i.e. a set of beliefs (the core one is that women were and still are exploited by men), and these beliefs then influence the particular mindset, work and decisions of its adherents. There seems to be no male correspondent to it, I’ve never heard anyone claim men were oppressed, at least not unilaterally. You could maybe claim that “anti-feminism” is an ideology that posits women were not oppressed, and that would be the closest thing to an opposite ideology.

    Then you have the MRM, which is a *movement*, i.e. a group of people who work towards some goals. In this case, it’s legal and social justice for men. MRAs can come from very different ideologies, they can be egalitarian or traditionalists, but very rarely you’d find a feminist MRA (the only logical combination would be a feminist who believes women were oppressed but that the pendulum has swung the other way). The female opposite would be Women’s Rights advocacy, for example suffragettes.

    Finally, you get the MGTOW, which is not an organized group, simply a term for a lifestyle. You could be a hermit, you could be a vagrant, you could be a socialite or you could be an MGHOW. It’s actually a very broad term, as the name implies (*their own way*, i.e. the way each individual prefers), so grouping them is only useful to describe a social phenomenon. They are not an organized entity, they do not share a core sets of beliefs (only perhaps that they’ve been screwed) and they don’t particularly care for what anyone thinks of them.

    In summary: (anti-)feminism – ideology (like a religion); W/MRA – movement (like a political party); MGTOW – lifestyle. They are linked but touch mostly on different aspects of life so one does not imply the other, just like you can be a muslim leftist stoner or a buddhist conservative globetrotter. Any “MGTOW manifesto” you come across should be treated the same way as a homeless manifesto or a PUA manifesto: fundamentally incapable of representing the group as a whole.

    Check my other response, but in essence:

    “I’ve bee a MGTOW all my life” – entirely possible, but I don’t know you

    “And given the things MTOWs say about women” – same thing as saying “given what snowboarders say about skiers”.

    “you would be forced to claim that Not All MGTOWS Are Like That, no?” – that’s exactly what I’m claiming, thanks for paying attention.

    “And women can’t? Couldn’t the exact opposite be said and still be objective truth?” – absolutely, and they’ve been saying so since the 70s

    So you are all for men’s rights, and the livelihood of men, yet you positively quote Thatcher? I can tell you don’t live in Britain where she robbed many working class MEN of the present and future potential to be providers for their families. She was a huge part of what created the ‘chav’ culture you see today in Britain where men turn to destructive means to fill their time because so many cannot find work. This harpie destroyed British industry and widened the gap between social classes. Look up the miners strikes in Wales. Is this a case of ‘I’m alright Jack’ or lack of historical knowledge about this wicked witch?
