Big Pink Fuzzy Protesters-Not Sure this is the Way to get Your Point Across.....

4 years ago

Why I will NEVER dress up as a vagina for Halloween, or any other occasion.

Ok, Code Pink is a peace organization formed by women to promote peace and wage peace in our world. Which I think is wonderful. Currently they are protesting at the Republican National Convention against the RNC platform on abortion.  Which I too disagree with.  But there has got to be a better, more intelligent and classy way to do this.

I get it-great point. It's getting media coverage. But haven't we all been told that negative attention is not what you want?

What has now worked against them is the fact that this week, they have women dressed in vag costumes parading around the RNC in Tampa. At least from what I have seen on social media and other media, it is turning into a colossal joke.

Hey ladies–do you want your kids to see you on TV and in the papers dressed like that? Sure, they will get over your Halloween costume last year when you went as Nurse FixItAll and Dad went as Dr. Feelyercrotch. They will get over the one time you laid on the couch all day complaining of a headache, when in fact, you really had the Vodka Flu and they knew it. They will get over the fact that you had a meltdown as Room Mom in the 4th grade end of year party. They will forget all of that. Kinda.

But they will never forget it if you end up on TV dressed as a giant pink vajayjay with a huge sign over your head some of which said, ‘read my lips’.


There have got to be other ways to do this.  Yep-they’ve been heard and noticed.  Got what they wanted. But taken seriously, not sure. You may or may not agree with me. (Be nice).

Besides, what kind of shoes go with a big hot pink fuzzy vagina costume, anyway?

Just my humble opinion.
