Left-wing actress Debra Messing recently caught the ire of the woke, all because of her fondness for women-empowering vagina cupcakes. You know — just like mama used to make.
She provided a glimpse of the tasty treats on Instagram, accompanied by a triumphant proclamation:
“Happy International Women’s Day! Powerful, beautiful, and sweet.”
Right — who wouldn’t wanna eat baked goods made to resemble mucus membrane-lined openings from the sweatiest part of the human body?
Sadly, Debra ended up eating crow: She offended all the women out there without vaginas (here), plus the wokies who’d never allow such a gaffe.
Enjoy a few reprimands, courtesy of The Daily Wire:
So when are we gonna stop equating genitalia to gender?
I love you so much debra, but this is suuuuper exclusionary of trans women & that’s not cool!!!
I hope u realise this literally excludes trans women..
Love you Debra. But my anatomy doesn’t define me. Nor does the absence of one define trans women. Just saying.
Isn’t “anatomy defining you” the whole concept behind International Women’s Day?
Just a friendly reminder that body parts do not equate gender.
Much love to all women today and everyday. Be fierce!
This is very cool! but lets not erase trans women
Not all women have vulvas…
If I wanted to hear the opinion of every TERF in the world, this comment section would be the perfect place to do so…
In case you didn’t know: According to HuffPost, a TERF is a Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist.
Debra edited her initial post, offering an apology to her male sisters:
“I want to apologize to my trans sisters. This photo was supposed to be light, & sassy. The first thing I thought when I saw this photo was “wow how wonderful. Each one is unique in color and shape and size. The porn industry has perpetuated this myth of what a ‘beautiful’ vagina looks like and as a result there are women who feel shame or insecure about the shape of the vulva. I loved that this picture said ‘every single one is beautiful and unique and that’s powerful.’ I did not, however, think ‘but there are innumerable beautiful, unique and powerful women who don’t have a vagina.’ And I SHOULD have. And for that I am so so sorry. Thank you for righting my wrong.”
Also decimating the Left are the Left, as was the case this week when Alyssa Milano tried to get profound:
“I’m trans. I’m a person of color. I’m an immigrant. I’m a lesbian. I’m a gay man. I’m the disabled. I’m everything. … Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know or understand. No one wants to hurt you. We are all just looking for our happily ever after.”
Please allow me to respond:
“No you’re not. No you’re not. No you’re not. No you’re not. No you’re not. No you’re not. No you’re not.”
Also: Despite the idiotic and rampant claim, people do not fear what they don’t understand. They just don’t like some things, and other people who do like those things can’t accept the fact.
And: It should be noted that Alyssa meant she is the thing diametrically opposed to an immigrant, which is someone who sneaks into the country rather than coming in via immigration.
She later apologized for her tweet:
I’m glad this tweet invoked conversation. I’m so sorry it offended some. I see you and hear you. But just a reminder, empathy is not a bad thing. Nuance is important and literal interpretation is not always intended. And I can identify with and not identify as. Both are powerful.

For more on Alyssa’s empathy, check out her empathy for legal gun owners while her security is armed (here), her empathy for those wrongly accused of sexual assault in general (here), her empathy for Brett Kavanaugh in particular (here), her empathy for Sarah Sanders (here), her empathy for Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss (here), and her empathy for white men (here). And scan her Twitter account for mucho empathy for Donald J. Trump.
Back to misogynistic vaginas (guess they’re not so beautiful):
I’m interested to see how far this goes. It seems to me that if Debra’s willing to assert that not all women have vaginas, it may be better to take it the other way instead: how about just say all women have vaginas, and some are veiny tubal outies with two wrinkled, hairy orbs dangling below?
BONUS: She can still celebrate that not all vaginas look the same.
There. Fixed it.
I (don’t) look forward to the cupcakes.
