A top medical information website which millions of followers, Healthline, is earning a lot of mockery for what it has in its new “LGBTQIA Safe Sex Guide.” Within the guide, they advise that the word “vagina” is no longer appropriate for describing that part of a woman’s body.
What do they propose instead of the medically-accepted and biologically accurate term?
But why the change, one might ask? The Guide explains:
For the purposes of this guide, we’ll refer to the vagina as the “front hole” instead of solely using the medical term “vagina.” 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 receptor 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.
