Open Thread: the Hive Vagina revealed

Geek Feminism HQ has received a very serious complaint and we intend to rectify our mistake as soon as possible.

Complaint: there is no picture of the Hive Vagina.

Proposed solution: commenters, get out your pencils, chalk, video camera or menstrual blood, and provide us with a hive vagina icon.

This wild bee hive has the right idea, I think:

In case it’s not obvious, this is an open thread, accepting both your hive vagina artwork and allowing you to talk about anything else you’re up to or want to share with other geek feminists.

    Because of the similarity (assonance?) between “my” and “hive,” every time the Hive Vagina is mentioned, “Eight Miles Wide” runs through my head for several days.

    When I instigated the discussion about pictures of the hive vagina, I pulled out Inskscape and made a button:

    And I’m warning you all: I own a button machine and know how to use it. But, alas, I do not own a working colour printer, so you may be safe… for now. ;)

    WordPress’s Dashboard says we have 256 published posts now. Yay powers of 2! Did anyone else discover exponentiation for themselves? I remember amusing myself at age 6 starting with 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8… I think I could only get to 256 or so in my head.
