Vagina, vagina, vagina! Bi, bi, bi!
In a shocker, China has decided to cancel a performance of The Vagina Monologues. It was supposed to premiere in Shanghai on Valentine's Day, which is also V-Day. (V-Day is an organization/movement that works to stop violence against women and girls. Much more worthy than Valentine's Day in my opinion.)
It's unfortunate that they won't be showing "Monologues", but The NY Times reports that another term for vagina might be the reason for the cancellation. That word? "Bi." It's pronounced more like the letter "B" or the words "be" and "bee" and not like the "bi" in bi-sexual.

Strange - china has a long tradition of taoist tantra. Strange that they are so afraid of anything sexual?!
