We Can Blame Oprah

for this: The Vajapocalypse, from WatchTheSoup on YouTube.

You can read the New York Times article here: What Did You Call It?, by Stephanie Rosenbloom.

See how the vajajay madness began: Oprah's Va-Jay-Jay.

Can't get enough of this news story? Read the commentary on Feministing: Vaginas are the new black (so long as you don't call them 'vaginas') and The downside of 'vajayjay'.

I knew there had to be a downside of this 'vajayjay' business. And his name is Michael Smerconish. In an article for the Philadelphia Daily News, Smerconish argues that vajayjay is a fabulous word because it makes men more comfortable, but pisses feminists off. (Who knew?)...

I'm not quite sure where Smerconish got the idea that feminists are "vajayjay naysayers," since he fails to mention one feminist who has a problem with the word--but that's beside the point. The fact that this dude thinks that euphemisms for female genitalia should exist in order to make a more man-friendly vag tells me all I need to know.
