Knit a Vagina For Your Rep, So He Can Leave Yours Alone

With no shortage of wacky (OK, insane) bills being proposed or passing, it’s an understatement to say women are getting fed up. But maybe the real reason male representatives are hell-bent on controlling our vaginas is simply that they don’t have one of their own! To help solve this problem, Government Free VJJ is asking you to knit, crochet, or sew a vagina and mail it to your local male governor, senator, or representative. Then he will be free to observe his personal beliefs and use it strictly for procreation, and not muddle it with slutty birth control.

The Government Free VJJ site provides links to free patterns of uteruses, cervixes, and vulvas, links to the contact information for your local reps, and a suggested note to include when you mail your lady package. The creators are also trying to track what’s been sent, you know, just to make sure no one gets left out.

Join the movement! It’s not just a fun way to express your outrage, it’s also a great way to use up those yarn scraps in your stash.
