Monologues’ refusal

Letter to the Editor | Monday, March 31, 2008

I am a woman. I refuse to be objectified. I refuse to be mocked. I refuse to be trivialized. I refuse to be debased. I refuse to be used. I refuse to be stereotyped. I refuse to be violated. I refuse to be valued only for one part of my body, and for how I utilize that part of the whole that is myself – a woman. I especially refuse to do so under the guise of “empowerment.” I refuse to support “The Vagina Monologues.”
