If you're easily embarrassed I suggest you stop reading right now.
Still here? OK good.
I am going to be talking about the V Word.
It's funny how the letter V is even shaped like one!
If you're embarrassed by the word vagina, I'd leave. I'm going to be highlighting it every time, get used to it. :)
Vagina's. Foo Foos, or whatever you like to call them, have been in the news an awful lot lately.
I'm going to start with the latest story, which all began on CBB.
Now I cannot stand Celebrity Big Brother, it's worse than the normal big brother, and I didn't actually watch what happened, I've only read about it.
Well apparently, Stephanie Davis (from Hollyoaks) was humiliated the other night, because she had put some dirty knickers in the dirty washing pile. OK? Then the boys of the house, went through the pile and found the knickers, which had a bit of discharge. They shouted in disgusted, and were mocking whoevers they belonged too. Stephanie admitted they were hers through sheer embarrassment. The worst part is, the other girls in the house, joined in the mocking too. I mean WTF.
Seriously, how immature and cruel is that.
This story really annoyed me. It's such a pathetic and childish thing to do.
I mean, they wouldn't want me to come round to their house, look through their laundry basket, and show off their skidmarked boxers to other people, all laugh about it, on live TV.
Also, what in the hell were Channel 5 thinking when they allowed this to air?
Seriously? No woman deserve to be shamed like that no matter if "they knew what they were in for"!
Secondly, just to say it. Don't be embarrassed.
Discharge is normal. (most, but not all discharge, check with your doctor)
Discharge means your vagina is healthy, it self cleans. It's amazing.
Onto the second story. Tampons are a luxury.
I know it was a while ago, when all the news about the new tax hit the headlines, but I'm just gonna say it.
Tampons are not a luxury. They are a necessity.
They aren't a special pay day treat, and they really aren't something you enjoy purchasing.
No one says "OOH, my cheeky Friday night treat, some tampons!"
or "I've been saving for months, I'm going to treat myself to some tampons".
Is kangaroo meat a necessity?
Or Herbal teas?
What about teacakes, or Jaffa cakes?
These are all deemed necessities, and therefore have no VAT.
Seriously. Is that what this world has come to?
Oh let's charge women more for having periods, but hey at least they can eat kangaroo meat for less.
Also tampons are deemed a 'sexual health product'. Which makes it make even less sense.
Would you rather be clean and healthy down there, or eat teacakes?
Anyway, that's my vagina rant over.
Now for the good bit.
Vagina's are awesome.
People have to stop being terrified by them, or embarrassed or disgusted, or whatever.
