Feeling anxious about your labia? Just stick a cellphone camera between your legs, post the photo to the Internet, and invite strangers to discuss what you’re working with. That’s the theory behind the Large Labia Project, a submission-based Tumblr that encourages women to air their insecurities (and their vaginal selfies) in the spirit of “labia pride.”
Here’s how it works: Take a photo of your vagina. Share your feelings. (“Hey! I’m so self-conscious and feel insecure about showing my labia.”) Then shoot it over to 24-year-old moderator Emma, who will invariably heap praise on your submission.
All right. The first one of you mungheads that submits my picture is totally going to the gulag.
The rest of the comments are predictable Ace fare. Read if you dare.
But step back and admire societal decay for a moment. By ‘decay’, I mean the trashing of the traditional objects such as family, women, and men begetting children that are born in liberty and raised to adulthood, so that they can marry, and society perpetuates. While paying only lip service to the labia site, and without waxing too evangelical about the topic, lest a man get lost in a sinkhole of bad subtextual humor, the more important question is: how do we laugh these people into growing up?
I’ll contend that the people out to degrade people by coaxing them into displaying their privates in public are related to the ones who foment academic inquisitions: ”First and foremost, never assume that historical accuracy is any defense.” Now, wait just a godforsaken minute. Have we reached such a state of decay, of inversion, in the name of Progress that our academic and cultural leaders are actively retarding the growth of individuals?
It’s as though, in the quest for power over individuals that all notions of liberty, of classical liberal discourse, of rationality itself, are increasingly used as fuel to keep people in an infantile, state-dependent cocoon. Coaxing women to paste pictures of their naughty bits is seemingly part of an indoctrination process. Could there be some. . .abortion waiting in the wings? Maybe, maybe not.
And my point here is not to engage in fear mongering about what the Godless Commies are trying to do to our Precious Bodily Fluids. Quite the contrary. My hope is that people would step back away from the situation, take a breath, consider the historical trend here, and set about rejecting the silly, ahistorical, irrational course we’re on. We have to reject it personally, at the ballot box, and in dialog with neighbors to mature out of the rut.
Tell the girlfriend “You’d be twice as lovely with half the plaster.” Teach daughters that modesty is the most powerful form of feminine allure. When she’s old enough, support her academic interests in going to a school with actual education, not indoctrination. Also, that motherhood is a noble and vital profession, and to ignore the diabolical lies of the feminazis. These Progressives have burned our culture down to ash in their quest for power, and our task is to rise from those ashes, phoenix-like. Let us show that our cultural traditions, while not invulnerable to Commie assault, can outlast it.
