...and possibly ward off evil! Watch the evil Rethuglicans as they shriek and whither away!
"Take that and that and that!!" the powerful and brave vaginal flashers would say!!
Before Western religion introduced the pesky concept of shame, female genitalia were venerated in ancient mythology,” writes Catherine Blackledge, author of The Story of V: A Natural History of Female Sexuality. Blackledge details how skirt lifting, or “ana suromai,” was once thought to help ward off evil and increase crop yields. She points out that 17th-century drinking mugs used to sport depictions of Satan cowering at the sight of an exposed vagina. Meanwhile, the ancient Greeks paraded around cakes shaped like vulvas during the three-day, women-only Syracusan Thesmophoria festival.
There was a time where church walls were lined with images of naked women. The Sheela Na Gigs, found scattered throughout Europe, are erotic carvings of the female figure typically consisting of women squatting and pulling apart their exaggerated vulvas. They were believed to ward off death and evil. SFP
"These carvings were of female figures showing off their vulva—often exaggerated far beyond its actual size. They are believed to have originated in 11th century France and Spain, but the practice spread to other areas of Europe. The idea of vaginas being a force against evil really stuck—even as late as the 17th century, we find drinking mugs portraying Satan cowering before a vagina." Link
I'm not an expert on topics of this nature and I don't have a vagina. I do find the study of various body systems worthwhile in understanding somewhat the function of the body. The body systems are numerous, the digestive system, the nervous system, the circulatory system, and many others work together to form and define the human being and human activities.
I'm not aware of any of these systems being deified except for the reproductive systems which include penis and vaginal worship.
One day, all the parts of the body were talking about who was most important.
THE BRAIN SAID – “Since I control everything and do all the thinking, I am the most important therefore I should be boss.”
THE FEET SAID – “Since I carry him everywhere he wants to go and get him in position to do what the brain wants, I am the most important.”
THE EYES SAID – “Since I must look out for all of you and tell you where the danger lurks, I an the most important body part.”
THE HANDS SAID – “Since I do all the work and earn all the money to keep the rest of you going, I am the most important.”
Of course, everyone got into the arguments and the heart, lungs, and ears all say the same thing.
Finally, the asshole spoke up and pointed out that he was the most important even though the others didn’t know it. All the others laughed and laughed to think of an asshole being boss.
The asshole decided to prove the point and refused to function. Blocked up tight.
Soon the brain was feverish, the eyes crossed and ached, the feet were too weak to walk, the hands hung limply at the sides, and the heart and lungs struggled to keep going.
All pleaded with the asshole to relent and agreed that the asshole was the most important and so it happened.
Moral Of The Story
The MORAL of the story is that the network is the most important part of IT infrastructure but not everyone realises it.
Or that the asshole always ends up being the boss :) [this seems to be the republican political methodology]
Then we have a more modern xtian dive into the vagina:
"Reading it caused me to remember that many Medieval prayer books included images of Jesus’s side wound as a vagina". Link
I guess the main thought I have about the "Holy Vagina" is that it is holy because it permits the savior to enter the world. It's holy so only god can fuck it properly. If abortion is allowed, the process may accidently Kill a divine being, Jesus! Some Catholic nuns say they are married to Jesus. There's a lot of competition out there for sexual partners. With Jesus setting the bar for the male prototype husband, the rest of us are SOL. Probably the next best male offering to attract a Holy Vagina-type woman is to have a big fat bank account or some fame that at least temporarily places the male as a Sex Symbol".
I mentioned In another of my idiotic rants on here about my uncle-in-law being a Mormon. His claim was that through his genealogical Mormon research, he verified that his bloodline descended from Jesus. OK , in that peculiar religious thought realm, that could lend substantial weight to the desirability of a male to be related to the "Son of GoB". I can speculate that his surviving covid could also be attributed to his Jesus blood which, BTW, was vaccinated. His wife, my aunt was bragging about how she didn't get vaxxed but her Jesus blood Husband was vaxxed but did get some harsh covid but survived. A few days after that she was crushed by covid and placed in home Hospice. She has survived beyond what was expected and I believe she is barely surviving at this point with Long Covid.
History is filled with stories of the reproductive systems being so important because they perpetuate the royal bloodlines. There is even the speculation/theory that the Holy Grail, is not a goblet but the bloodlines of those who descended from Jesus. (mostly royal folk I think). Anyway, it is just a method to lay claim to the title "Holier than Thou".
Kind of referring to the "Most important body part" joke. What if we worshiped the lower digestive tract?
The Holy Farter, The Holy Eliminator of toxic spirit turds, and the sanctity of the Holy Anal Sphincter.
This country does have a lot of toxic evil crap that needs to be eliminated, cleaned thoroughly, and a biomechanism to firmly place the nasty in a deep, properly sealed. stink hole somewhere, like a Whitehouse political outhouse guarded by fortified bunkers and heavy weaponry.
