YMMV / The Vagina Monologues

  • Critical Research Failure: Reclaiming Cunt claims that "CUN" are always round in upper case. N usually isn't, but "cun" are all pretty round in most lower case typefaces and scripts. Is that what Eve meant?
  • Nightmare Fuel: Transposed from the general Theater page's NF entry:
    The Vagina Monologues. One of the monologues, called "Say It," was inspired by the stories of the "comfort women," who were abducted by the Japanese government during World War II to serve as sex slaves for the soldiers. The person delivering the monologue describes the things she experienced, including the suicides of some of the other girls, one of whom is described as having deliberately run headfirst into a wall.
    • Several of the monologues describe abuse in excruciating, first person detail ("Memory of Her Face" is in particular hard to listen to), and the fact that this really happened, and will continue to happen is pure Nightmare Fuel.
  • Squick: The monologues tend to describe things in pretty excruciating detail.
