This link from The Guardian is about a female politician in Michigan being  banned from using the word ‘vagina’ in a debate on abortion lead by anti-abortion activists.  I wonder whether the same politicians would have banned the use of the word ‘penis’ in discussing men’s sexual health?  I doubt it.  As ever penis’s are cool and apparently we women envy them – although in my 68 years I’ve never met a woman who expressed a desire for one.  After all who would aspire to a body part over which one has little or no control.  But back to the argument –  ‘penis’ is all things to all people  but ‘vagina’ is distasteful and always suspect.  Really –  how far haven’t we come?
