The Hoohaa Monologues

A theater in Florida changed its marquee because they are showing "The Vagina Monologues" and a driver got offended by the word VAGINA. Apparently her daughter asked what a VAGINA is and she was offended that she even had to discuss this with her daughter. Of course, the "news" story was even more entertaining because the reporter couldn't even use the word VAGINA. He kept saying "that certain female anatomy." Good Grief! VAGINA! VAGINA! VAGINA! Why are people so offended and confused by this word (VAGINA)?

Guess what? That lady that was offended by the sign has a VAGINA. Her daughter that doesn't know what a VAGINA is, has a VAGINA. Using the word VAGINA is just about as offensive as talking about your femur bone. Get a damned dictionary and figure it out. Don't worry Merriam-Webster will tell you if it is an offensive or vulgar word (they do if you look up words like cunt). VAGINA does not have this disclaimer. See:

va·gi·na (or as I would say VA-GI-NA)
Pronunciation: v&-'jI-n&
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural va·gi·nae /-(")nE /; or -nas
Etymology: Latin, literally, sheath
1 : a canal in a female mammal that leads from the uterus to the external orifice of the genital canal
2 : a canal that is similar in function or location to the vagina and occurs in various animals other than mammals

The plural of the, ahem, V-word is vaginae? I guess I need to spend more time with the dictionary.
