President Donald Trump has directed the National Park Service to install a giant vagina over the Washington Monument as a gesture of good will. Feminists from the Pussyhat Project say the plan promotes rape culture.
“It’s bad enough that people of all genders already treat the monument as a giant penis,” said Pussyhat participant Ashley Judd. “Now Trump is forcing people to see it as a penis violating the very idea of American womanhood.”
An online campaign opposing the giant vagina project asks people to send a message to the White House. Here is an excerpt:
“Lowering a vagina over Washington’s monument might appear to recognize the rightful dominance of women, but it merely masks the country’s foundational commitment to heterosexual male supremacy, class hierarchies, and the systemic violence used to secure them.”
Not all women agree. “Whenever I get over to the National Mall, all I want to do is take a selfie with Washington’s hot monument in the background,” said a White House intern who declined to be identified. “Adding a vagina just makes it sexier.”
