No really, this actually made my head explode

femsignI hardly know what to say: anybody who thinks that having "hymen recontruction surgery" as a gift to her husband is a feminist act has gone beyond drinking the Kool-aid to self-flagellation. And totally squicked me in the process. I mean, anal bleaching, labia-plasty, where will the self-hatred end??

(via knotted knickers, and I may hold it against her)

Allow me to clarify: although Your Hostess did find the link about "hymen reconstruction" surgery via Knotted Knickers, I'm not the one who said it was a feminist act. I find it all - like labiaplasty and Brazilian wax jobs - deeply disturbing and unequivocally anti-feminist.

no! it was one of the participants who claimed to be a feminist.

it's only the squick that I may hold against you... ;)

Yes, ditto on the squick. I don't think I could even furl that one I was so wigged out by it...

Then apparenty YOU dont have large labia honeybunch and don't understand how ugly and uncomfortable it can be . Whats that old saying "Before you speak,take walk in my shoes ...?"

um, you realize that the squicking was about hymen reconstruction?! also, it's one thing to have labiaplasty because of actual discomfort, and another because you've somehow become convinced that you "don't look pretty," which is clearly the result of some grim misogynist programming...
