My Review of Cunt, AKA: "Ain't got no vagina" by Inga Muscio

This is not the typical book you will find on Eden. This is a beautiful book for women of all ages that can help you come to terms and even come to enjoy the battles we women face, if you will let it. This is a well written book that easily keeps your interest and will promote positive emotions toward yourself and your own cunt.
Warning: Will inspire feminism in many women.
Published:
Pros:
Female positive messages
Well written and makes you think
Cons:
Makes you realize what a male driven society we still live in

Before I start to tell you about what is inside this book, let me tell you what is NOT inside. This book is not erotic, nor are any of it's themes or stories. This book is not a story book. This book will also seldom make you giggle.

This book WILL make you think, make you use your dictionary(frequently if you are anything like me), and will make you proud to have a CUNT. Usually I try not to tell too much about a book, but this book in particular, I feel Inga Muscio(the author) would be happy for me to give you some of the more important facts that stick out in my brain, so that those who don't read it, can still take something from it.

This book can teach you many new things if you let it. Did you know it is possible to track your menstrual cycle by the cycle of the moon? Did you know that the box of tampons or pads you buy each month benefits a man owned company? If you knew that, did you know there are alternatives that not only save you money, but don't help a male owned company? Sea sponges and the moon cup or diva cup are awesome replacements!

From menstruation to abortion, she goes there. And goes there in more detail than I would have liked at times, but knowing how an abortion truly goes down makes me want to practice even safer sex. When she discusses menstruation, she is totally comfortable with herself, a confidence that as a woman drew me in, and I'm sure would draw you in as well.

In the 70's, when IUD's first came out, they damaged many uterus', caused cancer, and ruined the lives of many women of the time. These ladies, being Americans, turned around and sued the company who put these "torture devices" on the market. The company closed down, but what happened to all the extra IUD's? All 697,000 of them were given to our government and then distributed to countries where women(or men for that matter) don't have legal systems.

In this book, she talks about how her community CELEBRATES a girls first period. She talks about gifts being brought to the new "woman". How much more awesome and significantly less embarrassing would your first period have been if there had been a party in your womanhood's honor? I can tell you it would have been much less traumatic than my experience.

There are also chapters on rape. The why's and how's of protecting yourself and your sisters is a main theme here. Self defense classes are talked about a lot, but she also discusses in detail how your sisters can help you heal. She talks about a particular group of women she is involved with. They, instead of setting a mans car on fire or cutting off his penis, will go to his work place and tell his employer that he has a rapist working for him. They protest in front of where he works if he is not fired. We women are very powerful when we all stand up together.

Another ideal from this book that I feel is important is the fact that women have been conditioned to dislike one another, to compete, by the world we live in. In her opinion(and anyone who knows anything about history will agree) we women have been held down by a male dominated hierarchy through the ages. She talks about her life surrounded by feminists. How beautiful would it be, if when you are on the first day of your period and feel like hell, you called over your friend and she came over just to give you a back rub? Or a bar of chocolate? Or even just came and cuddled you.
Experience
First thing from the book I want to talk about my personal view on? WE WOMEN NEED TO LOVE EACH OTHER, and stick together. We need to band together and stand up for what is ours. We bring life into the world, we love, and we nurture. I'm not saying men are bad, I'm in love with an amazing and caring man. I'm just saying, we should stop competing and start loving. Love the mean girl at work, love her simply because she carries the same burdens you do. Start buying from female owned stores and female oriented companies. Love your sisters.

I personally wish I could be a part of Inga Muscio's inner circle. Be called upon for positive energy and menstrual back rubs. I admire her after reading this book, and hope to one day find my own circle of positive "Cuntlovin'" friends.

Lastly, and maybe most importantly, this book taught me the definition of "vagina". I don't know about you, but my cunt, my love canal, the doorway to my uterus, is much MUCH more than a sheath for some sword.

In this book she is not saying hate men, she is saying stand up for yourself and be proud to be a woman.
Follow-up commentary
I still think this is a great book for any feminist, male or female. It is a bit one sided, looking back, but I think that was her point in writing it. It is full of interesting female information and I feel like I learned quite a bit from it.

I would recommend this to any woman under the sun and think she could at least appreciate it, even if she doesn't agree with everything inside.

I still think the tunnel to my uterus is much more than than a sheath for a sword and I am still refraining from calling my cunt a "vagina".

    The interesting thing about societal interaction is that in the workplace women have more problems with each other - than the men in the mix. You ladies need to find a way to cut down on the 'cat fights'.

    Thank you much for reading...
    I really hope Eden doesn't really discontinue this...
    If anyone is really serious about wanting to read it, I wouldn't mind sending it to an open minded girl who would like it now that I've finished with it.
