Girly Bits Are Grody

The oh-so-hip Seattle Times has refused to run an ad for two performances of The Vagina Monologues because the co-sponsors of the event would not accommodate their request to change the artwork to something more "appropriate."

So much for the horror of nothing to see.

Hilariously, the scandalous inclusion of an oblique clitoris did not "stop Temple B'nai Torah and several area synagogues from prominently displaying a poster with the artwork in question in their places of worship."
'"The artwork was created by a member of my congregation," said Rabbi Yohanna Kinberg of B'nai Torah. "We have it hanging in several places in our Temple. I was just very disappointed that the Times didn't share our appreciation for what I consider to be tasteful and beautiful artwork."
Eh, what does she know? No self-respecting religion lets wommenz be leaders, anyway!
