Wait a minute...a man who saw about five minutes of a play, who walked out when it offended him, feels other people --particularly female people-- should be protected from the word 'vagina'? How does this make sense?

I suggest we trust our young people to think for themselves. If they are offended by a play they have chosen to pay to see, they, too, can get up and walk out. It is as simple as that.

Yeah! Well thank goodness he walked out,'cause that empty seat was probably taken by someone who missed his chance 'cause the theater was packed!!! I hope he enjoyed the three minutes and 59 seconds before the word Vagina was spoken... If he was so easily offended, why did he even go inside? The title is "The Vagina Monologues"... Me thinks he thought he'd get a change to see some nudity... Nothing offensive about that... But please, just don't say the "V" word!!! Probably beats his wife for having a "V"... ;-)

Can you really be THAT ignorant? People who are on his side for the anti-abortion movement in that area should be ashamed and definitely get a new spokesperson. He didn't even see the whole show! If he thinks that women respecting themselves and their vaginas are trash, then he is just proving that this production is contributing to a just cause. Congratulations, sir. You have now provided ammunition for your self-proclaimed enemy. Well done.
