Invagination is a fold, a concavity, a feminist reimagining of space, not necessarily correlated with the anatomical vagina.

Why invaginate??
–Feels good.
–Try something new?
–Your cells will love it!
–Intussuscept the patriarchy.

In this second version of The Case for Invagination, Bindler deepens her investigation of a monologue that she created for her knee scar, which now dialogues with her more recently acquired neck scar and her belly button about the meaning of life, and questions about whether they are invaginations (nouns) or if they have been invaginated (verb).
