So yesterday I made this magnet.
The inspiration for this came from twitter friend @ericainchaote who probably has little idea why I wanted this as a car magnet in the first place. Yeah, I put the topic for yesterday’s post up for a vote and everyone voted for vulva but that is not why this magnet is important to me.
There is something going on right now called a war on women and for the most part it is a war on cis women, trans men, and FAAB genderqueer. However, pay discrepancies and access to insurance likely affects trans women too. Most of the attacks in the war on women are directed at people perceived to have vulvae. If you are perceived to have a cunt, you are automatically deemed inferior. In that sense, it kind of clicked with me when I saw this slogan. It is how I want to vote. I want to vote for someone protecting my vulva.
Not only that though. I want to vote to protect all vulvae. That means the vulvae of non op/pre op trans men. The ones of post op trans women. Those of genderqueer. All of vulvae. I want to vote for candidates who know that women (in gender, sex, or both) are pretty fucking awesome. I want you to vote for candidates that promote rather than hinder our awesomeness.
I want you to Vote Vulva in 2012.
