Willies and Hoohaas

Wanna see something really stupid?

Apparently, some schools in the Southern U.S.banned a book for using the word "scrotum". Then, in an unrelated story, The Vagina Monologues was renamed "The Hoohaa Monologues" because somebody complained. Seriously.

Both of the articles cite the reason for the bannings is that kids might/did ask what a scrotum/vagina is.

Hey, here's an idea. If a kid sees the name of a body part, and asks what it is, tell them what it is. Since when is curiosity bad? Plus, chances are, if they're old enough to talk, they're just fucking with their parents by asking about it, trying to make them uncomfortable. Maybe if their parents weren't squeamish with the body parts they see in the mirror every morning, their kids wouldn't be such little shits. Then the parents wouldn't feel the need to ruin entertainment for the whole world because of their hangups.

If they knew what they were maybe they'd stop joining them together and making so maybe babies at 15 too.

Now I want to see a scrotum (but not mine).

My Judgemental Aunt: Stop being so judgemental.

Jason: I hear there are places on the internet where you can see scrotums of all kinds.

If you're into that sort of thing. I didn't think our sweaty little wrinkled bags of flesh would be appealing even to the most enthusiastic admirers of the male body.

Damn- I was gonna say what jason said about making babies at 15. I plan on going into an embarrassing amount of scientific detail (graphs and everything) with my kids until the very thought of having sex conjures images of their mother going into graphic detail about how babies are made.
