would you wear this?

What is it exactly? A Pocket Vulva. Yep. That's what it is. And it's available in any color you want.

Hand knitted by local crafter NYMG, it's officially a brooch and also (less officially but perhaps not) quite the crafty way for you to "show off your fabulous [feminist] side."

Actually I remember purchasing a crocheted vagina change purse years ago at a local craft show here in Baltimore. My mother of all people was so captivated by it that she begged me to make her one for Christmas. So, I figured out how to make a personalized version with extra furry yellow yarn for the lining (my mother is blonde). That's probably TMI, but who cares? I'm in a TMI kind of mood after seeing The Pocket Vulva for the first time.

So, what do you think? Would you wear it? Leave your answer below.

I've just got to say...seriously?

I guess my mind just doesn't go to the right place, but also, I'm just not a 'wear your feminist views on your jeans' type of girl. I'm not really a 'wear your (insert topic) on your anything' type of girl.

I'm also not a hater, though...To each his own.

Seems like the female counterpart to the plastic hanging testicles found on the back of trucks. Not my cup of tea in either case.

I'm not one to leave negative comments, so my feedback is that I like the anatomically correct pink knitted button at the top. She's kind of a vagenius.

I like the word vagenious :)
