University Proves That Radical Feminists Are About the Fights, Not The Rights

-By Warner Todd Huston

Feminist extremists at the all female Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts have forced the cancellation of the absurdist play “The Vagina Monologues” because it isn’t feminist enough. That’s right, the play once hailed as the height of feminist expression is now deemed not feminist enough.

The thing about a civil rights movement is that it often ends up being more interested in the perpetual fight than in the actual achievement of any rights. Such “movements” often end up devaluing actual achievements by acting as if nothing has changed even after they’ve achieved staggering success.

We see this in nearly every rights movement in America. Take black civil rights, for instance. This country has progressed from a country where blacks were held in bondage, to one where they were free but had few rights, to today where blacks are 100 percent equal in every way with the rest of civil society. And yet, despite the amazing positive changes for African Americans, today we have charlatans like Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on who traipse about the country stirring race hate and claiming that no progress has been made despite the blatantly obvious facts to the contrary.

This loathsome tendency to imagine that no progress has been made in spite of reality is also a chief feature of the feminist movement and this business at the all-female Mount Holyoke College is a perfect example of that.

Mount Holyoke’s theater group has been putting on annual performances of the risible play “The Vagina Monologues” since the year it became famous as the leading exposition for militant feminism in 1996.

The play, written by Eve Ensler, has been hailed as “incisive” and “insightful” and has won numerous awards and plaudits since its debut. It has been performed by mavens of political correctness from coast to coast. For nearly 20 years this thing has been held up as a stellar achievement for feminist empowerment.

Yet now, all of a sudden, it isn’t feminist enough.

Is it because “The Vagina Monologues” is a flawed feminist vehicle? Have people suddenly realized it is a sham? Have people at last realized how risible it is?

Well, no. It was all that from the very beginning.

So, what has changed? Why has this once highly praised work suddenly fallen on hard times?

The answer to that is that feminism has become radicalized farther than “The Vagina Monologues” was willing to go when it was originally written.

As childish and obscene as it was originally, “The Vagina Monologues” didn’t go so far as to include men who want to be called women. And because feminists have now embraced the trans community as part of feminism, “The Vagina Monologues” is now looked on as not feminist enough.

Here is the explanation from Mount Holyoke:

“At its core, the show offers an extremely narrow perspective on what it means to be a woman,” wrote Erin Murphy, a representative for the school’s Theatre Board. “Gender is a wide and varied experience, one that cannot simply be reduced to biological or anatomical distinctions, and many of us who have participated in the show have grown increasingly uncomfortable presenting material that is inherently reductionist and exclusive.”

Gender is a wide and varied experience? What an idiotic claim.

Regardless, this is such delicious evidence that these civil rights movements are never about the rights and only about the fights. These groups spend so much time agitating and moving the goal posts that they eventually become a self-parody.

After all, how hilarious is it that a movement that started to help get women the right to vote, to find equal treatment in education, the workplace and the law is now engaged in fighting for the rights of cross dressing men to pretend they are women and even kicking to the curb its own award-winning members in the pursuit of that absurdist goal?
