But dear heaven, I wish it was easier to call a vagina a vagina, especially when talking about women's bodies, for heaven's sake. Anyhoo. Do take a look at this article from the Guardian by Naomi McAuliffe about the politics of calling a vagina a vagina. An excerpt:
Apparently, when discussing a medical procedure, it's not really appropriate to use medical words. Well not about lady bits anyway. It makes me wonder what euphemisms would be acceptable. "Will the representative get his hand out of the otter's pocket?" "Can the honourable gentleman refrain from trespassing in the lady cave?"
What a great, ironic rant. My lady garden couldn't agree more.
