Cruel and Unusual: Community College Staff Forced To Watch ‘Vagina Monologues’

V

For The Daily Caller, Eric Owens reports: No fewer than seven faculty members and other employees at a community college amid the suburban sprawl of New Jersey complained after they were forced to sit through a faculty member’s rendition of part of “The Vagina Monologues” at a staff-wide event.

A sampling of the monologues on offer includes “My Angry Vagina,” “The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy” and “The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could.”

The mandatory gathering of some 300 professors, bureaucrats and staffers occurred approximately two weeks ago at Mercer County Community Collegereports Inside Higher Ed.

School spokesman Jim Gardner said all full-time profs and administrators were “expected” to attend the end-of-the-year assembly, which was a celebration of the highlights of Mercer’s academic year.

One highlight of the gala event was a production of “The Vagina Monologues” on campus back in March.

The Vagina Monologues” is a series of soliloquies designed to be read by women. Initially, playwright Eve Ensler performed the entire show herself. It is now common to have a number of women perform the monologues. Also, actors choose their monologues, so each piece isn’t necessarily used in a given production.

A sampling of the monologues on offer includes “My Angry Vagina,” “The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy” and “The Little Coochie Snorcher That Could.”

The employees who filed complaints perhaps did not expect to hear a professor prattle about vaginas in candid terms at a mandatory school meeting.
