Not to mention that a compromising picture of Bernie Sanders in 1970 has shown up.

Fathers are overrated...They descend the birth canal, and spend the rest of their life trying to get back in.

Well, this will teach Cosby to keep his mouth shut about black culture pathology. Bill Clinton could have told him how to avoid this trouble.

Back in my days of attempting to write novels, one of my titles was "My Life as a Fictional Character," based on my personal experience as the wife of a writer.

I think it's revolting to refer to the vagina as "the birth canal."

Ever since someone showed me clips of Bob Saget's stand up, the American sitcom dad has been ruined forever.

Maybe you should reread "Brave New World." It was revolting to think of anyone being born the old way. They were "decanted."

Ann Althouse said...

I'm not revolted by vaginal birth. I'm revolted by the renaming of the body part for the occasion. What's that about?

Bob Ellison said...

Better than penile birth.

Gusty Winds said...

Doesn't the vagina get renamed for all kinds of different activities and uses?

It's worse than we thought. A new translation of Grimm's Fairy Tales is out and Prince Charming didn't awaken Sleeping Beauty with a kiss. He raped her. Just heard that on the radio. Not even kidding.

The vagina has two definitions, the birth canal only one. The medical term for vagina is the part between the hymen (or where the hymen was) to the cervix. The legal (and colloquial) definition is from behind the labia to the cervix.

Woman: "I can't see my vagina!"
Doctor: "That's good."
Woman: "What do you mean good, I should be able to see my vagina."
Doctor: "No, what you should see is your vulva."
Woman: "My what?"
Doctor: "Never mind, try to get more exercise by going to a gym."

Michael K said...

"My what?"

What is the c=difference between the uvula and the vulva?

One is Ahh and the other is Ahhhhhhhhh !

Old ICU nurse joke.

Clearly Atticus Finch was gay. Leave him alone.

The Panama Vagina gave birth to easy trans-oceanic shipments.

The birth canal includes the cervix, vagina, and vulva. It's everything the infant must pass through to leave the uterus and enter the outside world.

I took a trip down the birth canal once. Can barely remember it, but do remember thinking, this better be good.
