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.
TERMINATE RANT. END TRANSMISSION.
