Like a Beautiful Flower (and other things you shouldn’t say)


So, according to Capitol Hill (and most people) we’re not allowed to use the word Vagina, even when we’re talking about legislation affecting abortions which involves…well.. vaginas. Because it does. Clearly.

We (lady-people) apparently don’t like even saying the word, even when we are allowed to.

Do read Jezebel’s article on why and what we should probably say instead.

People far smarter and funnier than me have taken to Twitter etc to try and find a different word. Which mostly has ended up being quite icky words relating to a) fish b) meat c) hairy fish-meat.

But here are a few I like that have popped up, if you will.

Va-jay-jay (I do actually use this)

Chuff (Scottish deriv.)

Temple of Awesomeness (why the hell not?)

Hot Pocket (courtesy of my chap, thanks chap)

Love tunnel (Romance fiction, kind of eewww in a middle-aged woman cat owner way, only included it cos it had no reference to fish or meat)

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
