Amanda Bynes Regrets Vagina Comment, Acknowledges that, Yes, Misogyny Sucks

Sometimes an apology helps in the anti-misogyny battle. Remember last spring when former Nickelodeon darling Amanda Bynes tweeted: “I want @Drake to murder my vagina?” Ughhhh. Even Drake wasn’t too stoked on reading that (but he was so polite!). Well, Amanda has reconsidered her words.

Needless to say, this creepy comment was openly laughed over and promptly shoved under the rug. Never mind the fact that countless impressionable young girls now think that it’s funny to ask a man to mutilate her genitals (which, BTW, actually happens in other countries to this very day).

That has all changed. Now, Amanda says her tweet “horrifies” her and she’s seeking to make changes in herself.

Though it’s a small gesture, it’s cool to see a woman take back a comment like that. Statements like that reiterate misogynistic ideas. Our vaginas are awesome and shouldn’t be murdered! Also, it isn’t easy to stand up and admit you made a big mistake. Props to Amanda for taking back her words!
