Feminists Start The #VaginaChallenge To Raise Money For Planned Parenthood

It’s time for you chumps to expand your vocabulary. Let’s face it. This world is far to male-centric. The patriarchy still continues to dictate the words that come out of our mouths, even though we don’t realize it. Wanna know how I know that?

“Vagina.” People are afraid to say the world, “vagina.” At least, according to SheKnows health editor Elizabeth Yuko. She believes we need to change that. In fact, “vagina” should become part of our “everyday vocabulary.”

“But it’s not just old white dude doctors who are uncomfortable with vaginas,” she writes. “Different surveys have found that between 35 and 65 percent of women are uncomfortable saying the word “vagina.” Translation: We’ve been so conditioned to think of women’s bodies as shameful or inappropriate that we have trouble using the correct term for a part of our own anatomy. That’s messed up.”

No. That translation is messed up. I don’t think women are afraid to say the word vagina. We just don’t think it’s an interesting subject to bring up in every day conversations. “Penis” doesn’t come up in everyday conversations either, but it’s not because people are afraid to say it. It’s because people generally don’t want to talk about male junk during their lunch break. Same goes for vaginas. Unfortunately for me, “vagina” is already practically part of my everyday vocabulary. #ThanksFeminists.

This Yuko woman needs to get out of her social circle a little more often. The author of the article is right. It's not that there's discomfort in using the word, it's that it's not necessary to use it in conversations that aren't about the vagina.
Of course, to satisfy the rabid feminists among us, it could be injected into speech in previously unused ways, perhaps as a substitute for one particular and often used colloquial name for penis:

"Janet, stop being a vaginahead and go along with us."

"Stop vaginaing around and get your work done!"

"I thought that they were going to leave me a really good tip, but then they vaginaed me."

"Don't worry about it, dude, it doesn't mean vagina."

"We're counting on you, so don't vagina out on us, okay?"

"I don't know if I can work her anymore because our boss is a real vagina."
