Hi Minique. Do you even know what a vagina looks like? ^^

...


really?


Well, technically, what she drew looks more like a vulva, so I understand the confusion. That said, it would be harder to draw an actual vagina and have people know what it is... It would basically look like a fleshy tube.


When people say "vagina", they're usually using it as a metonym for the outer lady parts: vulva, labia, and clitoris. While this shouldn't be an issue, it really is because, well, people are dumb and far TOO MANY (sadly including females) don't know the difference.

Also, an amusing blogpost as to why it doesn't matter (at least how it's used in the strip): http://jezebel.com/5921451/i-dont-care-about-your-stupid-vulva-its-all-vagina-to-me/all

This makes the possibility that her superhero was a troll attempt to mess with Theo for making pimp-man, less likely. Or so it seems to me.


How do you figure? The whole thing still seems pretty trolly, and very tongue-in-cheek.

Also, it's April Fools.


Because she says that's how she deals with her frustrations, to me her expression seems pretty genuine and she doesn't mention anything about Theo. April Fools, though, you're right. Forgot about that. We'll see.

I can't read the word 'female' being used where 'woman' or 'female bodied people' or some other equivalent should without hearing it in a Ferengi voice. And since I haven't watched that much Star Trek my brain helpfully substitutes Skeksis voices.


Feeeeeeeemale.

You're right. Saying "including those with vaginas themselves" would have been funnier. On a related note, I wonder how many men couldn't find their own glans if you asked them where they are located.

Somewhere there is a macro I made. It is a picture of a Skeksis with the word "SKEKSIST" in front of it.

I can't find it and I don't feel like making a new one, so you'll have to imagine it.

Radioactive vulva drawing is fine with me! But Peter's torso is passing weirdly through a wall of the vulva that should be solid. . . reminds me of episiotomy Shocked

First of all, I learnt a new word; metonym, I can only hope that I will remember this word beyond today.

Second, I agree with that Jezebel article concerning the use of the word vagina as a generalised term for a female's lower-region naughty bits cos whenever I hear the word vulva, I think Volvo.

Okay, that is actually really, really cool.

Having looked at that right after reading this, I am left wondering if maybe, someday, they'll find a way to fix all the things that are just kind of messed up across the board thanks to stupid evolution that said, "eh, good enough."

#6 and #7 for relevance (maybe NSFW, it's genital themed food): http://www.mommyish.com/2013/10/14/vagina-cakes/

That came from a discussion about the following articles:
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/08/beware-of-cupcake-fascism

http://jezebel.com/fuck-cupcakes-475125988

http://jezebel.com/5911208/a-cupcake-is-never-just-a-cupcake-the-psycho-sexuality-of-a-twee-treat

Which lead to the discovery of the t-shirt worthy line: "a cupcake is a symbol for both a vagina and the female orgasm."
