"The brain science of the vagina heralds a new sexual revolution."

Another headline. My second headline post today. Is this new one more absurd than "Illegal monkey living on Frosted Flakes bites woman"?

Hey, it's been known since Adam that guys think with their "little heads". Why should it be any different for the chicks?

It's also really sad that Naomi Wolf is going to take some molehill of neuroscience that she really isn't qualified to comment on and turn it into a mountain of feminist moral claptrap.

More science, less Naomi, please!

Palladian said...

Just mix 'em up a bit...

Living frosted vagina bites monkey brained woman; science flakes herald a new illegal sexual revolution

wyo sis said...

Oh damn,
It's Naomi Wolf and a bunch of women dressed as vaginas.

I shoulda guessed.

sydney said...

The content of the article is even more absurd than the headline.

Sorun said...

"Finally, women have the neuroscientific knowledge to liberate their bodies from patriarchy's social control and culture of shame"

Huh?

"The brain science of the vagina" will win any absurdity contest.

I like Palladian's suggestion better, though,...

DADvocate said...

the vagina is not just a sex organ at all, but a powerful mediator of female confidence, creativity and the sense of the connections between things.

I'm thinking vaginas make some people who have them batshit crazy.

yashu said...

It was liberating to me to witness in his lab how obvious it was that evolution, or Nature (call it what you will), had so valued female desire. It put the issue beyond the contested realm of culture and value judgments. As he put it, his lab rats had never heard themselves be called "sluts".

LOL! Yeah, um, I don't think you want to appeal to nature/ evolution as a moral authority, honey. Nature/ evolution isn't particularly feminist.

Paddy O said...

So the vagina with the biggest brain gets what?

yashu said...

By the way, I do think the vagina is a great topic for a book. Just as the penis is.

But Naomi Wolf is one of the silliest persons imaginable for the job.

Camille Paglia, now that would be more interesting.

Obama? Slick Willie?

edutcher said...

We are talking about a very little little head.

And the feminists think this makes them superior.

Scary stuff.

It sounds like aliens have arrived on Earth and have chosen to marginalize human life in order to dominate the multitude of human beings. They are employing scientific (or emotional) jujutsu to exploit the human ego's dream for instant gratification to voluntarily commit evolutionary suicide. Then again, perhaps they're just run-of-the-mill human fanatics with a cause and without a clue. If so, then we should probably ignore their advice and "expert" testimony. They have ulterior motives which only serve to sponsor progressive (i.e. cultural) corruption.

What the New Science of the New Sciences Tells Us About Our Unquenchable Craving for the Illusion of Scientifically-Validated Insight.

Naomi completely ignores the foot in the cerebrovaginal neural complex. I think tiny feet, if need be induced by foot binding (but toe sucking is sometimes helpful), heightens a woman's sense of sexual pleasure and creativity during moments of intimacy. It remains an undisputed fact that most of the great women in history had dainty feet. The Chinese were very wise about these matters.....Naomi is gathering funds to endow a school of gynecology at John Hopkins University to further study the mysteries of her amazing vagina. I just hope that this important facet of her sexuality is not ignored.

Synova said...

Women are utterly (udderly?) beclowning themselves. Vagina, vagina, vagina.

We've been making fun of men who "think with their other head" for *ever* and some idiot comes up with the idea that she's going to demand and get "respect" dressed as a bright pink nudibranchs?

And of course Naomi Wolf finds humiliation titillating.

Synova said...

I can't find the link back to the stupid vagina costume pictures.

This is probably a good thing.

kentuckyliz said...

Oh, great. I thought I was liberated, and now this feminist is trying to reduce me to my lady parts?!

Darleen said...

I wishWISHwish everyone would stop calling that costumes worn by CodePinkIdiots "vaginas"

They are VULVAs.

kentuckyliz said...

Hormones have more affect on mind, mood, emotion, and behavior than our junk does. My firm belief.

Synova said...

They aren't vulva costumes.

They're hot pink sea slug costumes.

wyo sis said...

They're idiot suits.

Roman said...

Women control half of the money, ALL of the pussy, and then bitch about not enough control. Ever wonder why "bitch" is almost always feminine?

SGT Ted said...

So, when a guy thinks with his genitals, he is being sexist and stupid.

Whne a woman thinks with her genitals, she is The Superior Being.

What a bunch of silly shit. That headline lends credence to the old joke that the only reason men put up with women is because they have vaginas.

Feminism is now openly celebrating supremacist bigotry and idiocy.

SGT Ted said...

They are VULVAs.


Well, they don't look ANYTHING like a car from Sweden in those pics.

vet66 said...

Can you test drive a Vulva?

rhhardin said...

Men don't think with their penis. It's a peripheral.

The brain's got the wiring.

Beldar said...

Roman asked, "Ever wonder why "bitch" is almost always feminine?"

No, but then I grew up around dogs.

Saint Croix said...

his lab rats had never heard themselves be called "sluts".

Yes, but they get called lab rats, Naomi. You are now comparing feminism to the ethics of a lab rat.

Maybe they will give you the cocaine, next!

I'm not sure reducing humanity to pure animals is the way you want to go on that.

"She was in heat, officer. I couldn't help myself."

I heard they wanted to put my dog's picture up at the post office as a "deadbeat dad."

Dante said...

So the science is interesting. The rest of it is stupid. Naomi's reasoning could as easily be used to argue for use of cocaine and supplements of oxytocin.

What Naomi might take from this, but apparently doesn't, is that oxytocin is a bonding agent. Short translation, there is value to women being faithful to their guys, to women. Wander down that path too far, and one might find some unpleasantness about human behavior.

From now on, I'm going to have my wife keep her eyes open while she is having her orgasms.

Dante said...

Oh, given all this funky monkey wiring, how do the lesbians do it right? Is Naomi suggesting lesbian sex is less than fulfilling? All those nerve endings ready to stimulate, all done so well by a man, how can it work in lesbian sex (except with, you know, the artificial man).

Saint Croix said...

By the way, I do think the vagina is a great topic for a book. Just as the penis is.

Camille Paglia, now that would be more interesting.


IIRC, Paglia annoys the hell out of Althouse. I think that's a diva thing. It's pretty funny as they are so similar in a lot of ways.

I haven't read Paglia's "important" book, or her poetry book. But I have read her two pop books:

Vamps and Tramps (awesome)

and

Sex, Art, and American Culture (awesome).

I should read Sexual Personae, actually. Don't know why I've never gotten around to that. She's brilliant fun.

kcom said...

Clearly society is ready for a 24 hour vagina network, i.e. VaginaTV. Get right on that, Naomi.

"Can you test drive a Vulva?"

Why, yes, you can. Some places will give you a free test drive and some places you can rent them by the hour. Of course, there's always the full purchase option. I'm not sure if long term leasing is available.

It's also fairly common to own one at home but have to rent one for a few days when you're travelling.

"Living frosted vagina bites monkey brained woman...

That is excellent, Palladian. It inspired me to write a script to generate a few more:

Living science bites frosted vagina monkey flakes; herald a new illegal brained woman sexual revolution

Brained monkey revolution; new vagina flakes living a frosted herald bites illegal sexual science woman

Sexual monkey science; a vagina flakes frosted new herald bites revolution brained woman living illegal

Saint Croix said...

Oh, given all this funky monkey wiring, how do the lesbians do it right?

So this made me google "cunnilingus animal kingdom"
which took me to a comic strip. Which is probably hilarious if you're a herpetologist.

Then I clicked around a little and found out that the bonobos are where you want to go for freaky-deaky in the animal kingdom. So, a little nervous now, I google "bonobo sex" and find

Young Female Bonobos Having a Tickle Fight and Sex

And here's Naomi Wolf arguing that we should do it like the bonobo! No, just kidding, it's a scientist named Christopher Ryan. Anyway, Naomi, it's bonobo, not lab rat, for stupid feminist cliches. Work the google, girl.

madAsHell said...

Illegal monkey??

It's better to think of it as an undocumented monkey, and the monkey is working in jobs that Americans don't want.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

I swear that there was a time, maybe twenty years ago, when Naomi Wolf was not nature's most perfect ninny. Not anymore.

Shana said...

Both sexes have a certain percentage of complete idiotic whack jobs. Now that women seem to have grabbed the microphone, we are treated to more vaginal craziness. There's a Kanye West joke in there somewhere.

Joe said...

At 50, Naomi Wolf discovered that orgasms are a result of the human nervous system, not magical. I'm not joking; she proudly declares what most of us learned when we were teenagers.

This is what irritates me most about intellectuals; the learn common sense and act like they're the first ones.
