Beki Reilly's Kickstarter

Vagina Coloring Book Promotes Reclaiming NSFW Slurs

By

For a child, there's nothing more engrossing than spending a few hours with a coloring book.

Whether you stay within the lines or take a more "abstract" approach like I used to, coloring is both creative and helps kids find their inner zen.

For an adult, the prospect of illustrating a NSFW vagina-themed coloring book that promotes women to reclaim slurs about the female anatomy is equally fun and even more empowering.

UK-based artist Beki Reilly has made it her mission to transform "utterly cringeworthy words into works of art."

Her coloring book entitled entitled "Colour Up Next Tuesday" is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter and has reached $930 of its $1,323 goal.

If you managed to figure out the coloring book's accompanying acronym, you have also stumbled upon one of the words that Beki strives to "make beautiful."

The coloring book, which Reilly plans to deliver in November, contains these 15 words that are ready for you to reclaim with a simple doodling of your magic marker: cunt, twat, flaps, minge, pussy, vag, axewound, muff, bucket, gash, snatch, rat, fanny, slit and clunge.

So, want to see what your future masterpieces might look like, sans color of course? Here are a few pages of samples.

The use of "flaps" as a derogatory term for a vagina is sure to flap away with every stroke of your colored pencil!

Make DaVinci proud by turning this "twat" into your magnum opus.

See? How do you feel now about the word "vag" when it looks so dang pretty and expertly colored?

In fact, for Beki it's all about the feelings surrounding these words that she says "are intended to humiliate women for having a vagina." Beki told Mic in a tweet,

By transforming the word with color, you can completely change how you feel about it.

Well put, Beki. While you wait to have the coloring book in your artist's hands, you can check out Beki's Instagram here.
