I find it funny that the word vagina caused so much uproar, even funnier however is the fact that women actually prefer this word, which translates from the latin as 'Sword sheath' to describe that part of their anatomy, and thus choose to describe themselves as sex objects, which would horrify the vast majority of women if they only realised, whereas the correct English word for that part of the anatomy, which begins with the letter C, is probably the most reviled word in the English language these days but was in common currency as recently as Victorian times. So hated is that word nowadays that I cannot even use it in this discussion even in purely academic terms, nor would I want to funnily enough.

Indeed, almost every major town in England has a street that was once known, due to its association with the local 'red light' trade, as 'Grope C*** Lane', every single one has now been changed, the one in London is now 'Grape Lane'.

Why are we so wierd with words?

All this does is teaches people to be afraid or disgusted of their own body, which is nonsense, people should embrace their body, not fear it. This is why censorship is a very bad thing, it gives people the wrong idea about things and then stuff like this happens.

Read my post above kerrichin. It is us, today, who are skew whiff and have it all wrong. The word 'Vagina' is actually sexist and demeaning to women, whereas the C word that I am not permitted to type in full is actually the correct English word for that organ.

Our language is a wonderful thing and its idiosyncracies are fascinating.
