    haha. Weird how American society is soooo obsessed with women’s bodies, but can’t get over the anatomy of our vags… people need to get over it.

    Looks like The Onion has been taking vocab lessons from my boyfriend.

    I love the term hoo-ha for my down theres! ;)
    (but seriously, i do)

    It amuses/angers me when university professors use euphemisms like these. I had a psychology prof last year who could not say “penis” or “vagina” or anything body related really. He would say things like “his wee wee” and “her down-there”. Seriously, people, they’re not that scary – students of all ages actually yell penis all the time.

    Yea, I’d be pretty pissed too if my anatomy prof couldn’t actually use the proper names for the organs of the human body. I mean, how would he grade the tests?

    Teaching the history of psychology, and so mentioning Freud, must have been difficult: how do you say “penis envy” without the first word?
    “Ding dong envy” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. I am not jealous of doorbells.

    I am not jealous of penises either. I do like your analogy though :)

    I’m sure she was upset that they didn’t call her up about winning America’s Next Top Model.

    I know my twinkie suffers ding dong envy all the time… *sigh*

    Made me think of this: http://contexts.org/socimages/2009/02/01/womens-bodies-are-inappropriate/
    (I am pretty sure this was covered here too, but I knew where to find it at Sociological Images.)

    OK, get this: I had a DOCTOR, my primary care doctor, a family doctor, a WOMAN, who was probably just shy of 30 at the time, who WHISPERED “vagina” when she had to say it. Talking normally, blah blah blah [whisper: "vagina!"] talking normally again. It was insane.
    I should print this article out and mail it to her. (Note I say “had” a doctor, because at that point I found a new doctor.)
