I’m suing Shonda Rhimes

I loathe Grey’s Anatomy for making this mainstream and getting men to think that we should switch the word from vagina to vajayjay.

In Michael Smerconish’s blog over at Huffington Post, he talks all about the harnish of the word vagina, and how it is uninviting. How no one has ever gotten used to the word vagina and people feel very uncomfortable using it, especially men.

It’s a reminder of the difficulty men of all ages have had in coming up with the proper name for what’s in the female zone.

Um, since when does a man have to come up with a “proper” name for my vagina? They don’t have one. They can keep on using the name it already is, and if they really have an issue with it, fine, use vajayjay amongst yourselves, but please don’t try to push another word on us. And I know some women and feminists who like the word, so ok, that’s fine. But it sounds like he’s getting at the fact that he has power over this area, which he does not.

Oh right, and then he attacks feminists. He says that feminists have much interest in our vagina and that we don’t want men “attracted” to it. So, he’s pretty much saying that feminists are asexual beings. Right. That’s bullshit. And everyone knows it!

The reason why people have been and still are uncomfortable using the word is because a woman’s “private parts” have been looked at as a lot of worth almost the entire history of the world. People still want and expect women to be sexually pure, and in some places it’s a must. But men on the other hand can be as sexually promiscuous as they want. Their sexual organs are not as “special” as a woman’s, therefore it’s so much easier to say penis than vagina.

So, ultimately, I blame this one on the patriarchy completely.

    the word vagina in Latin means a sheath for a sword
    although it is not demeaning in English by no means should it be considered a proper name for such a perfect place.
