*Some things are just too ridiculous not to share. Ya feel me?
Take a mother named “Autumn Lily Speaker” (not her real name, thank goodness). A post on Reddit tells a story about how she, a self-proclaimed feminist, baffled one teacher after she brought a tray of vagina cookies in for the teacher to share with her daughter’s second-grade class. (Note: The picture above is not the actual cookies. But they might have looked like it.)
Reddit user JPStudly, a friend of the teacher, got permission to share her first-person account in a post published two days ago. With only a screen shot of an email and no real names or locations, the story seems far-fetched but wouldn’t you know, it’s exploding on Reddit with more than 4,000 comments. “Angry Feminist Vagina Cookie Mom” is quickly becoming the latest viral sensation.
Studly begins the post by writing, “This is a friend’s story and she isn’t a Redditor but I begged her to let me post it from the perspective that she told the story in.”
The story talks about how students are rewarded for behaving well that week, with an invitation to their parents to bring treats for her class on Fridays.
Autumn (remember, this isn’t her real name but the teacher says it’s close) volunteered and showed up to class with a pan full of treats and said with a smile, “I decided you can use these to teach the kids about the woman’s vagina today.”
As you can imagine, the teacher probably just stared at the woman and was at a complete loss for words.
Then she opened the package.
“I slowly peel the aluminum foil off the pan to behold a plethora of sugar cookie and frosting vaginas,” the teacher shared. “Not just any old vagina, but ALL KINDS OF VAGINAS.
“There were small, puffy, white, brown, shaved, bald, and even a fire crotch with beef curtains. Perplexed I give the parent the most professional look I can muster and quietly reply ‘I’m sorry Autumn, but I can’t give these to my students. This just isn’t appropriate.’”
Autumn, who Reddit users are calling a radical feminist, went nuts. The mother started screaming in front of the class and telling the teacher that she should be proud of her vagina and that she’s settling for a “woman’s role” in life.
“Finally after what seemed like an eternity, she storms out of the class leaving her vagina cookies on my desk,” the teacher said. “I scramble to collect my thoughts and take control of the situation before my second graders develop vaginal PTSD. My only thought is to scrape off the vagina frosting and hand out the plain sugar cookies to my students.”
Later that day, the teacher received a few calls from parents asking about the cookie incident and then she received the angry email from Autumn.
What came out of all this? Autumn pulled her child from the public school and moved to a private one. And she is supposedly no longer allowed on district property.
Since this story doesn’t contain any real names or locations and we only have the email, which could easily have been fabricated, its validity has to be questioned. This could be one desperate Redditor’s attempt at becoming a viral sensation. Yet the pure absurdity of this story makes it all the more believable. How could anyone come up with this crazy story on their own?
True or not, the piece has struck a chord with Reddit users who feel that Autumn is a bad role model for feminism.
One user writes: “That is seriously the icing on the vagina cookies of…bad feminism.”
