The HooHaa Monologues

So we're watching the news a few nights ago and this story came on. I swear I've never laughed so frikkin' hard at a local news channel. The best part is when the reporter is giving alternate names.

So please take a few moments to watch and hope you get a laugh out of it like we did. I'm so glad they put the video on their site!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I saw this in the news too! It made me think of NC.com!

People can be so ridiculous. What kind of message does it send when a word like "vagina" is considered inappropriate?

HOOHAAAA!

so the child was old enough to read the word on the sign, but didn't know that it was a term to describe her genitalia.

i would have been ashamed to approach someone and admit that my school-aged, literate daughter didn't know what a vagina was.

good job, mom and dad. good job!

I hope the attention this has received made the woman that called to complain feel like the moron that she is.

So the woman was offended she had to explain to her neice what vagina meant?
No wonder some people are so freakin uptight nowadays. The woman who complained needs to get over it.

I laughed so hard when they were censoring the reporter when he gave the alternate names!

But seriously, America is so damn uptight. It is just a body part...

That is so sad that the child could read the word vagina on a sign but didn't know what it was. Dear parents, talk to your children for God's sake. Sincerely, me!
Ick. Someone I know (acquaintance, not a friend) is doing stage crew for a local production of this. She keeps sending me emails about it that have subject lines like "c*m see my VAG!"

I'm diligent about making sure that my main email account doesn't get spammed. I'm no prude, but it's very obnoxious to have a non-spammer send me emails like this.


Anyway, the actual news clip is pretty funny. I was relieved to see that they treated the topic with a sense of humor.
One of my earliest memories of sex ed class in the 8th grade is a funny one about the word vagina. We were reading the text aloud as a class, each reading a chapter and then on to the next person, etc. The girl in front of me had a paragraph with the word vagina and she pronounced it vah-gina (Gina or Geena). My mom had taught us the proper names so I knew that it was mispornounced and I believe other kids in the class knew that too. I looked at our teacher, a man, waiting for him to correct the pronunciation. He never did. Then it was another classmate's turn to read the next paragraph and it contained the same word and this time, the boy student, pronounced it va-geena too. I always wonder if there are people from that class walking around today pronouncing it that way... And jus thow silly that no one corrected it and that parents did not teach their children the proper words in the first place....

Since we're talking about vaginas. "Vagina" does not sound like what it actually is. The word is just wrong. Vagina makes me think of "china" (like china dishes) and it just has an overall ick sound "va JI nuh". It's just blech, it sounds very cold, hard and uninviting. (well it does.) It needs a softer, nicer sounding name.

Penis isn't any better. It sounds wimpy..and weird. (I'm just sayin..)

Who the hell came up with these words? They should be fired.

Maybe I'm just sensitive to the sound of words.

or maybe I'm just a freak-weirdo.
yeah...that's probably it.

This thread is so funny. Yes, I agree that the word vagina just sounds icky. I'm sorry - I'm not saying the body part is icky, or that anybody should feel uncomfortable with theirs, but it's just not a good word. Either is penis. I agree.

We use some silly nicknames around the house for those types of areas. I will make sure my child does know the correct word for it. I wouldn't want her to be uneducated, but I don't think at 5 she'll be running around saying vagina, or penis. I mean, I always knew the correct names for them, but we never really called them that at home.

I mean seriously, we don't teach kids to call their toes "my little wigglers". No they're freakin called TOES.

People need to stop being afraid of vaginas.
That or they need to stop attaching a bunch of weirdo baggage to them.

oh. That put a really bizarre picture in my head. ok, I'm going to just quietly exit this thread now....

And I agree that hoo haa being on the marquee is the only offensive thing about the situation - that and that STUPID woman actually thinking this is something to complain about. She was upset she had to explain a perfectly innocent part of the human anatomy? Or upset she had to get off the phone?
OMG, LOOK!!

It drives me insane when parents teach little tiny girls that their private parts are called "vagina". It's incorrect. The vagina is only one part of the female anatomy...and it's the HOLE part. Little girls don't even know they have a hole there, and they're running around saying vagina...talk about ICK! Creepy...

The correct term for the outer genitalia is vulva. If we're going to criticize people for not using correct terminology...the very least we can do is be...correct...

Carry on...
