CNN somehow thought this was important, perhaps because thanks to its efforts, vulvas and vaginas will finally — finally — be destigmatized. True, “The Vagina Monologues” broke new ground in this field, and the pussy hats at the Women’s March (though not trans-inclusive) were a major step forward. But now there’s a vagina museum in London.

CNN reports:

The first museum in the world dedicated solely to the vagina will open in London in November, after a crowdfunding campaign raised almost £50,000 (about $62,000).

The Vagina Museum will educate visitors about vulvas and vaginas while challenging the prevailing stigma surrounding them, development and marketing manager Zoe Williams told CNN.

The museum will open on November 16 in a temporary location in London’s Camden Market, with an exhibition entitled “Muff Busters: Vagina Myths and How to Fight Them.” The exhibition will challenge “pervasive myths” about the vagina and vulva, Williams said, “such as that vaginas and vulva need to be cleaned through the use of bespoke feminine cleaning products; however, the vagina is completely self cleaning.”

That’s a stigma?
