PC eating itself

Came on this just now by chance; ironic, amusing, etc.

The famous feminist play The Vagina Monologues might offend people who "identify as women" but who do not have vagina's. 

Not wanting to offend such "non-traditional women," a progressive girls college that always showed this play has decided not to show it this year.

A similar clash of liberal verities occurred at Mt. Holyoke College, one of the New England womens institutions founded in the mid-19th century by reform-minded benefactors. Ms. Holyoke still prides herself on women-only exclusivity, but what to do when non-biological women want to enroll? Apparently, the solution is to make up some boilerplate about concepts of what it means to be a woman, which, mind you, are not static.

It makes for some interesting dilemmas. For example: After years of empowering the fair sex on campus through annual Valentines Day performances of Eve Enslers one-woman play The Vagina Monologues, it was decided that VM would be offensive to women who dont possess the titular apparatus. Feminist protests notwithstanding, the show did not go on, and the academic world watched feminism tie itself in knots trying to accommodate nontraditional females. After two generations of emasculating men, what can they expect?
