The Post-Structuralist Vulva Coloring Book demystifies gender and pleasantly confuses your assumptions as you are drawn into its mesmerizing bricolage of patterns, folds, and whorls. Color away the false binaries between male and female, words and text, inside and outside, art and nature. As you meditate on the sameness and difference of the vulvas on each page, you will grow to question your interpellation into dominant systems of knowledge. By overwhelming the senses with vulvas, you will interrogate the meaning and very existence of this social construct we call the "vulva" and the instructions for living that come with it. Quotations from post-structuralist philosophers, from Foucault to Derrida, Lyotard to Kristeva, accompany the art, and can be colored and even edited into new constructs and timely critiques of the patriarchy. No longer must vulvas be either crudely objectified or shrouded in mystery All hail the vulva The vulva hails you
