I Didn’t Come From Your Rib. You Came From My Vagina.

I didn't come from your rib. You came from my vagina

I didn’t come from your rib. You came from my vagina

Once upon a time we imagined God as The Goddess.

Women give birth, and so from the goddess worlds were born.

But once we knew the role men played the goddess birthed a son who grew to become her lover and consort. And from these two worlds were born.

Later, gods overtook goddesses. And eventually, from God the world was born. (Why this pattern? I’ll discuss it later.)

And these patriarchal types have been trying to control women’s reproduction ever since.

But PsychoSuperMom is here to remind us that:

I didn’t come from your rib. You came from my vagina.

Video here:

Good to remember when you hear that from Adam Eve was born — making women secondary.

  1. Wow, very flattered you liked the video enough to post it, and your readers are awfully nice. Thank you! I do a new one every week and post by Friday morning on youTube (psychosupermom) and Twitter (@laurenscomedy). My latest is a showtune for Kim Davis, “The Homophobe Tango (She Had It Coming)” -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqSWff-IWbM

    Stay tuned for more!

  2. That’s a great Post, Title and Video, and good lyrics.
    Well certain things are controversies.
    But they are never far from truth.
    Let me be away from them.
    Oh! my God!!!
    Shiva

  3. The rib story of Eve only exists in the bible, for the apparent benefit of all those with dogmatically blinkered visions, Georgia. The cosmic power, or infinity, is formless; yet the earth and energy, in Indian thought, are symbolised in the feminine gender.

  4. If Trump was a C-section baby, that could be why why he thinks he’s a male deity (or maybe he’s just an A-hole).

  5. Obviously, this person knows very little of Bible history.

    Original man (Adam) was created from dust…Yes, all subsequent men were born from the womb of woman. But, still Eve was created from Adam’s rib.

  6. Lol- so true. And to overstate the obvious- even Jesus came from a woman’s vagina. That physical fact in itself flummoxes me in terms of how come so many people still find it hard to think of the feminine as sacred/creatrix as any male deity.

  7. This video is the BEST! It gave me a good laugh. When put that way (“I didn’t come from your rib; you came from my vagina!”) puts things into a new perspective, doesn’t it?

  8. I have to comment on this one, absolutely true, The video was awsome, funny yet delivering the message. I believe at times most men forget this part of life and not giving due respect for that fact, after all we did not magically appear one day.

  9. Hi Georgia…Truth…And! Thanks for sharing with us. Wishing you days of magic and wonder…Phil

  10. Omg awesome video – and one of my favourite one liners ever: I didn’t come from your rib, you came from my vagina 🙂
