Vaginas are fucking fabulous!

I consider myself a linguistic chameleon of sorts: I exercise an encyclopedic vocabulary when I talk seriously with my children so they will learn and broaden their understanding of the English language outside of Rap music; I implement professional terminology in my business life because I am extremely proficient in what I do and my verbal skills consistently convey that; I execute a considerably more unceremonious exchange of communication when I’m with family and friends so they know they can relax around me and just be themselves; and for years I intentionally reach into my magic lexicon bag and use the words FUCK and VAGINA as often as possible to make people feel uncomfortable because quite frankly it’s amusing to me…
While people’s reaction to the simple letter arrangement of the word fuck comes across as total trepidation, I can almost comprehend it. Fuck is a very strong sounding term, if enunciated accurately, with very conflicting definitions. On the one hand it means to have sexual intercourse with someone which is thought of as a pleasurable thing, well most of the time; but on the other it’s defined as to ruin or damage something which is almost always a bad thing, especially if it is a vagina. So yes, it’s a very confusing word that conjures up mixed reactions and for that I can appreciate the hesitation to fully embrace the four letter repertoire as I have…
But seriously, vagina? Like vagina, vagina? The same vagina that is the proper name for the body part that approximately 50% of us have, 67% of us drew our first breath after passing through on the day of our birth, and 100% of us can point out on an anatomically correct doll, that vagina? Well unless there is another one, you completely lose me there…
My lack of empathy most likely stems from the fact that my mother was a PE and Health teacher that axed any possibility of using cute childhood nicknames before I knew they were an option, and instead we learned and said the proper name for all body parts as well as bodily functions from the time my brothers and I were old enough to talk. This, like the love of pizza and bagels, is something I choose to instill into my own children; but for the record, ‘passing gas’ jokes are way less funny than their farting counterparts, therefore I withheld that lesson from the kids, once again for my own entertainment…
So you can understand my confusion as to what it is about this particular body part that makes it so taboo to discuss and worse to verbalize than any four letter word out there, even fuck, that not only do 47% of the population get uneasy when they hear it, mostly women by the way, but they can’t even say the word vagina, and to top it off, there’s actually a thing called Vaginaphobia for this ‘disorder’ which perplexes me even more; I mean really, they even have their own monologues, shouldn’t that make them more sociable and less fear deserving, it does make them more stage worthy…
OK, I’ll admit it, the love hate struggle can be initiated through the fact that vaginas do require a lot of personal attention before they are ready for their close up with all the grooming, Kegels, food to odor ratio, discharging, dilating, and menstruating they do period, I meant the punctuation mark. Then throw in the disheartening reality that roughly 16% of women never have an orgasm, about 30% of women feel some pain during sexual intercourse, 100% of women feel pain during child birth and of course yoga pants in general; but those shouldn’t be reasons enough to discourage anyone from not claiming it’s immensely liberating power and beauty, let alone saying it…
Because having a vagina, and the sexual distinctions that make women women, are the most powerful creative forces in the world; and if that’s not enough to convince someone, add the statistic that women who are more confident about their vaginas and sex-esteem have better orgasms, well the 84% that actually have them anyway…
But, if personal empowerment and gratification aren’t enough to convince you that talking about vaginas is a positive thing, how about helping others; namely children. The hard truth is that sex abuse prevention educators want kids to know that their private parts are off limits to others and want children to be able to talk about them in ways everyone can understand, rather than using euphemisms. Not only does this make communication clearer but it instills in them that the adults in their lives can hear about that part of the body openly from them and that it’s not something they have to hide. But more importantly, a child should view their entire body as healthy and that there’s no particular part of their body that’s shameful, including the vagina…
And if that still isn’t enough to sway you, there’s that other pesky little fact that the entire survival of the human race kinda depends on the vagina, and unlike everything else in the modern world, there will never be an app for that, so for that alone don’t we owe vaginas the respect of at least addressing them properly…

Now repeat after me: Vaginas are fucking fabulous!
