Repeat After Me: V-A-G-I-N-A

I believe that the vagina, and discussion of it, has been repressed and penalized for far too long. I remember a boy called me a "vagina" at primary school, so I went home to ask my family what it meant. Nobody educated me on the fact that this was a sexist remark but instead I was silenced for uttering a taboo word.
