Protecting the Widdle Twannies Feewings
The formerly* all-women’s Mount Holyoke College has cancelled its annual performance of ”The Vagina Monologues.” While at first glance that may sound like a return to sanity, it’s anything but.
Mount Holyoke student Erin Murphy explained on behalf of the student-run theater board in an email to students on Wednesday that the play is problematic because it is not inclusive of trans women
You read that correctly. It was cancelled not because it’s inane, insipid, or insulting to the intelligence of normal, rational humans. Nope. Because it’s not inclusive of “women” who lack vaginas, i.e., cross-dressing men. We can’t offend their tender sensibilities now, can we?
Such is the state of higher education today. You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.
*I say “formerly” because last year they began admitting males who can’t tell the difference between the reproductive organs of the two—count them—biologically defined genders of our species.
