A Pocket Guide to Vaginal Euphemisms

Yesterday I noticed this fact sheet about vaginas circulating on Tumblr. It includes a list of common euphemisms, most of them pretty negative. I’ve taken the liberty of categorizing the list so you can draw your own feminist conclusions:

a list of vaginal euphemisms with color-coded categories delineating which terms indicate your vagina is food, gross, scary, just a place to put a penis, a strange animal, a geographic location, a mode of transportation, a made-up word, a victorian lady, and finally, awesome. Sorry to folks using screen-readers, this image requires visual referencing.
