Healthline says, using the medical term ‘vagina’ is not gender-inclusive

Healthline has claimed health disparities and higher rates of HIV and STIs observed in LGBTQIA communities are due to discrimination in the sex ed world. So, the California based health information provider has adopted the gender-inclusive term “front hole” in place of the medical term, “vagina” in their latest LGBTQIA safe sex guide.


“For the purpose of this guide, we’ll refer to the vagina as the ‘front hole’ instead of solely using the medical term ‘vagina,'” the document explains. “This is gender-inclusive language that’s considerate of the fact that some trans people don’t identify with the labels the medical community attaches to their genitals.”

“For example, some trans and nonbinary-identified people assigned female at birth may enjoy being the receptors of penetrative sex, but experience gender dysphoria when that part of their body is referred to using a word that society and professional communities often associate with femaleness. An alternative that’s becoming increasingly popular in trans and queer communities is front hole.”

The document went on to claim, lack of representation and anti-LGBTQIA bias in standard safe sex guides stigmatizes certain sexual behaviours and identities and is directly related to higher rates of HIV and STIs reported within LGBTQIA communities.

The guide goes on to suggest, “it’s imperative for safe sex guides to become more inclusive of LGBTQIA and nonbinary people and their experiences. This will help address barriers to accessing care and effective educational tools, while simultaneously normalizing and acknowledging the true diversity that exists with regard to gender and sexuality.”

Sorry ladies, the term “vagina” is quickly becoming a bigoted word. As is often the case with transgender ideology, its greatest impact is on women and girls. Men and women are inherently different, and women will pay an especially high price if we continue to pretend otherwise.

Who gives a shit?
Other than you of course.
I had hoped it was a piece of right-wing fake news, but that doesn't seem to be the case :(
Someone needs to take these people to one side and explain to them that this type of nonsense is not helping their cause in the slightest.

Just not that big of a deal. If the military can call civilian causalities "collateral damage"...*shrug*

Sorry, honest folks. Sabcat is just lying again. Never presume to take anything he writes at face value.

The article does not imply that the word is 'becoming a bigoted' one. It states merely for the purpose of that particular study they're using a different term in order to include
all people in a sexual health survey.

Sabcat is merely making a mountain out of a molehill ... again.

Nothing to see here.

Oh - was that actually in the article? I thought that was your aside.
So, it wasn't really a news report - it was just a rant. Gotcha.

Anyway - sorry for mistaking it for your quote - I guess it was because it was in two separate boxes that I got confused. My bad.
I wasn't trying to be disingenuous. But, what I complained about is still valid. YOu just didn't author it, you merely posted it.
