There's no better way to say I love you [didn't I use that blog title before?]

I came across this vulva portrait necklace in Cosmo magazine (!), as if it was completely normal... there was no mention of the fact that it's disturbing. Just the mere concept gave me a chill. I can't even bring myself to include a picture of the damn things here.

Please note the fact that "Each piece is an original, one of a kind hand sculpted image of its owner to remind her that regardless of what the world and the people in it may tell her: she is beautiful."

The fact that someone might actually have this made, let alone send pictures of their own vajayjay, is just mind boggling to me. Cause you know there's some skeevy old perv on the other end of that purchase just waiting for unsuspecting feminists or clueless boyfriends/girlfriends to send along a picture of a big VAJ! thinking that someone might actually think that this is a gift of some kind...

I mean I'm all for a woman feeling powerful and beautiful, but can't you just go buy a pair of nice shoes on sale or put on some sexy underwear?

Seriously. Ick.

More on this later.... it's Friday at 7:13PM and it's officially the weekend (or some semblance of what I call "weekends" these days)...
