About me

Location Virginia, United States
Introduction This blog was inspired by a thread at Alas! A Blog, which was, in turn, inspired by the big kerfuffle over the House declaring “uterus” to be a dirty word. The uterus in that pic is available on etsy, but I decided to make my own. The idea for this blog didn’t need a uterus for gestation, as it sprang fully formed into my brain like an inverse Athena. Taking pictures of an adorable uterus was too fun to pass up. And thanks to the powers of crochet, Ute the Uterus was born. Ute is also a symbol. Not of womanhood, because not everyone who has a uterus is a woman, and not every woman has a uterus. But the forced-birth movement likes to take personhood status away from individuals with uteri and think of them solely as the uterus (baby carrier). If the person becomes a uterus, then the uterus must become a person!
