Protesters Dressed as Giant Vaginas Greet Republican National Convention Attendees
~ Erin Gloria Ryan
Tidbit 1: Attendees at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida were greeted today by a group of protesters dressed in giant vagina costumes. Tidbit 2: Somewhere in America, there is a place where you can buy a giant vagina costume. What an incredible time to be alive.
The dubiously effective protest, which the website Shark Tank pearl-clutchingly called “vulgar,” was put on by members of a group called Code Pink, who, according to their website, encouraged women to “Bring your vagina to the RNC!” Per Code Pink,
Together, we will bring our resilient, creative, powerful vaginas to Republican fundraisers and to the convention hall. We’ll also take part in the Coalition March on the RNC and other peace and justice actions.
Code Pink has several protests and marches planned for the duration of the RNC, although I’m not sure how many Republicans will be convinced to change their minds by a group of women dressed like genitalia. If they were dressed like sexy Ronald Reagans, maybe.
