Vulva Spaceship aims to counter prevalence of phallic spacecraft
Rima Sabina Aouf | 3 March 2022 153 comments

A German feminist art group has revealed a vulva-shaped spaceship concept, which it is encouraging the European Space Agency to help realise in order to better represent humanity in space and "restore gender equality to the cosmos."

The group Wer Braucht Feminismus? (WBF?), which translates to "Who Needs Feminism?", created the Vulva Spaceship concept to challenge the convention of phallic spacecraft design.

The yonic craft was designed to signal inclusivity and the group has started a petition on change.org calling on the European Space Agency to consider the project.

"The project adds another dimension to the representation of humanity in space and is communicating to the world that anyone has a place in the universe, regardless of their genitalia," said the organisation.

Found a Huffington Post article which had link to their YouTube about the craft.
A number of the comments on it refer to being unable to tell if serious or parody.

IMO, it was a satire to some degree.
But it was also "Artistic Expression".

I think there are structural reasons for rockets to be the shape they are. They can't crumble during launch and I think that is why they are the shape they are...it is the cheapest way to keep them rigid.

On the other hand, the proposed new shape would probably be great for space stations. I'm sure the rockets would love to dock with them.

Just put a little pride in your stride, and a little dip in your hip, and come onto the mothership.

One of its nicknames is the Vagina Building.

This is the high-rise that Sarah Anderson was hanging from in Adventures in Babysitting.

by default it will be as what ray bradbury envisioned as "the silver locusts." and it takes quite an imagination to see that building as what people call it.

it becomes news when a critical mass of people misconstrue it as reality and take umbrage such as when jonathan swift wrote about the irish doing you know what.

Sometimes they are difficult to distinguish.

(Though I'll refrain from naming any recent U.S. presidents as illustrating that point.)

And there are structural reasons for penises to be the shape they are.
Seriously.

In human males, the shape of the penis--particularly the umbrella-like 'lip' under the tumescent glans head (the coronal ridge) was sculpted by natural selection to retract the semen of any other males who may have had sex with that woman within the previous 48 hours, since this is the approximate length of time that ...29 June 2012
