I Call further BS on Good Vibrations!
Wow, Good Vibrations keeps digging a bigger hole with every move. This morning they wrote to me and other critics:we donated vibrators and body care products for post-surgical care to the women undergoing surgeries at the clinic in Trinidad. Colorado, because our colleague Betty Dodson requested that we do so. We have not partnered with Clitoraid beyond this, nor do we have plans to do so.
But just a wee little bit of digging pulls up a press release they made on March 24th this year declaring
This Summer, Good Vibrations’ customers can give the gift of pleasure to women around the world who suffered female genital mutilation (FGM) during childhood. They can do this by making a financial gift to Clitoraid at the time of their Good Vibrations purchase. (for full text see here: http://www.newsguide.us/education/Good-Vibrations-Announces-Upcoming-Donation-Partner-Clitoraid/?date=2010-03-25)
Oh, and Clitoraid seems not to have gotten the memo that Good Vibrations is not supporting them either!
Write to Good Vibrations urging them to cease their support of Clitoraid for their humiliation of African women!
