Fonda and Betches Agree: C*nt Kerfluffle Silly

Jane_fonda_eve_ensler

Last week, the world clutched its pearls over Jane Fonda's use of the word "cunt" on the Today show.  As a couple of you lovely betches pointed out, Meredith Vieira's later apology on behalf of the show and Fonda was a bit much.  Today, Fonda tells Us Magazine that the betches are right: this is silly. 

The first time that I knew about The Vagina Monologues, I was asked to perform that particular monologue in Atlanta, and so I just happened to say the name of it.  I didn't even think. I'm sorry if I offended anybody ... I think it's pretty silly.

Well, seriously.

Poor Jane, and she just LOATHES controversy, too. ;)

I haven't paid a ton of attention to this but that word should not have gone out over the air. It's a horrible word and I have seen much "lesser" words been bleeped completely.

cunt, cunt, cunt.

it is a word, people. she accidentally said a word. big whoop.

The entire point of the monologue (titled "Reclaiming Cunt") is about taking back something that belongs to us and has been made into a dirty word. Our vaginas are not shameful things, and the fact that we see a word for it as an insult is sad. Reclaim the word, be a cunt (by which I mean a nurturing, flexible, enthusiastic person!)

My 14 year old brother sat through the first VM's I directed in college, and if he could get over the twitter factor and see the meaning behind it all, than I would think a bunch of adults could also.
