If you have some free time on Saturday, you may want to join the New View Campaign in their national flash activism event. At Babeland, we have always believed that people's bodies are sexy just the way they are, so we were excited to hear about this campaign. I know I'll be there - I hope you will be too!

International Vulvanomics Flash Activism
November 19, 2011  
Sponsored by The New View Campaign to Challenge the Medicalization of Women’s Sexuality (newviewcampaign.org)

Since 2008, the New View Campaign has challenged the growth of a dangerous new industry, female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS) wherein amputations of parts of the vulva (labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction) are marketed as “enhancement” and “beautification” procedures.  On their websites, surgeons post before and after photographs that misinform the public about genital diversity, suggesting  that all vulvas should look alike and that there is something wrong with full labia. Check some of them out for yourself here and here.

The New View Campaign (a feminist project  that began in 2000) believes that the informed consent process for these procedures must include information about the range of genital diversity. New View is speaking up and targeting surgeons who make false claims and who create self-consciousness and anxiety.

On November 19th, add your voice to an international day of FLASH ACTIVISM. Participants will be taking and then uploading photos of themselves holding signs in front of the surgeon's offices and sending a very specific message: we support genital diversity!
