Fair use excerpt:

Quote:
the woman said she was "offended" when her niece asked her what a vagina was.

Sounds to me like this woman just needs to get her head out of the clouds and learn how to talk to her niece.

HooHaa?!?!

It doesn't say how old the niece is but it is this kind of ignorance that leads to teenage pregnancy.

"Vagina isn't an offensive word -- it's a medical term you'd find in a text book.

Using 'HooHaa' is a bit less obvious regarding the meaning, but to use slang terminology in place of a proper term sounds a bit backwards to me.

Anyway, this kid was gonna ask the question someday. The aunt was unprepared to answer it and that's her own fault. RUFF!"

You've got to be kidding me?

What gets me is one woman who needs to really loosen up, complains-and they change the name of the play?

Unfortunately, this is also part of the wussification of America. One complaint, and people jump through hoops trying to soothe the complainer, instead of telling them to shove it, and just go on with the show.

And of course that word is offensive, especially in the Bible Belt, where they don't believe in being honest about sexuality to begin with.

That as far as I know is a medical term and I don't see how someone would be offended by that. There are a lot worse words out there to describe the female lower parts. I say she should get a life

To be fair, there's always been a puritanical streak when it comes to language in America. That's why tits (birds, by the way) were re-named chickadees, and the British "titbit" was changed to the American "tidbit".

Odd, but there you go.

How could you be offended when you call it what it is. I have known women that get all worked up if you don't call it that.

beaver

Wynona's got herself a big brown beaver
and she shows it off to all her friends.
One day, you know, that beaver tried to leave her,
So she caged him up with cyclone fence.

Along came Lou with the old baboon
And said "Recognize that smell?"
"Smells like seven layers,
That beaver eats Taco Bell."

Now Rex he was a Texan out of New Orleans
And he travelled with the carnival shows.
He ran bumper cars, sucked cheap cigars
And he candied up his nose.

He got wind of the big brown beaver
So he though he'd take himself a peek,
But the beaver was quick
And grabbed him by the kiwis.
Now he ain't pissed for a week.
(And a half!)

Now Wynona took her big brown beaver,
And she stuck him up in the air.
Said "I sure do love this big brown beaver
And I wish I did have a pair."

Now the beaver onces slept for seven days
And it gave us all an awful fright.
So I tickled his chin and I gave him a pinch
And the bastard tried to bite me.

Wynona loved her big brown beaver
And she stroked him all the time.
She pricked her finger one day and it
Occurred to her she might have a porcupine

So this woman will explain the facts of life to her daughter and use the medically correct and p.c. terms "hoo haa"? What else? "Winky"?

I can see it now (fast forward with me, please)..."now honey, the man places his winky in the woman's hoo haa and they make nice nice so 9 months later a baby comes out of her tummy."

What ever happened to being open and honest to and with your kids. They get far worse on t.v. and in the schools and streets.

My parents hated "baby talk." Even in the early 1960's, they refused to use euphemisms of all types, even in public. Their teachings rubbed off... I hate terms like "passed away" instead of the saying the real word...DEAD. That's an example.

Honestly, getting offended by the proper term for female genitalia is pretty bad. I wonder how offended she'd get by the more colorful nicknames for said body part.
