Yes, this is the new dichotomy.

'People with vaginas'

Same journalist:

metro.co.uk/2017/09/26/how-the-average-penis-size-changes-across-the-uk-6955968/

"Penis size really doesn’t matter. If you’re concerned about your skills in bringing a woman to orgasm, remember that the majority of women don’t actually climax through penetrative sex."

"the study also looked at whether there’s actually any truth to the size of a man’s penis making him any better in bed."

'People with vaginas' - used 3 times.

And the man article

'Men don't like wearing condoms'

Men validated, women denied.

I never would have noticed that

shock

Flipping heck.

This is why most men dont care about the changes

Start usting 'person with penis' and most would soon get on board

My intuition is that all this cucumbers being stuck up is nothing to do with women and everything to do with neo vaginas that don't self clean or porn by and for men who have no idea what it's like to have a vagina.

This needs to go in Aibu. I'd be interested to see if there's tumbleweed from the ploppers and libfemmy handmaidens.

"Start usting 'person with penis' and most would soon get on board"

Thing is, transwomen would probably explode with indignation if you referred to them as "people with penises".

I haven't seen a lot of this outside of this board to be honest, until I joined a recent fb groups and every time, every time, someone posts a query like "ladies, I need some advice on mooncups", you can almost set a timer until the first "women aren't the only people who menstruate, please edit your post. People with vaginas will suffice" :/

Sorry dey

I meant for example in an article in GQ call all men 'penis owners'

Start calling men, people with penis...sss confused and they will hopefully start to understand how incredibly frustrating it is

Fuck.

I might "call the journalist out" (God I hate that saying) in a totally wide eyed and innocent way on Twitter.

The article about clitoral stimulation does contain the word 'women ' four times. I didn't feel invalidated by that one.
I think she's just using 'people with vaginas' as an attempt at humorous language.

Nuffaluff Fri 01-Dec-17 09:44:46

Also, the first article talks about the vagina being self cleaning, which a fake vagina isn't.
I really don't think her intention is to erase women. She makes quite a few anti-porn comments in them.

MakeMisogynyAHateCrime Fri 01-Dec-17 09:49:15

I wonder if she is being sub edited by someone with an agenda?

I know what you're saying but I don't think it would work.

Men are proud of their penis (peni?) and encouraged to be so from being a child.

Women/girls absorb the message from a young age that all of their natural body functions are gross and nasty.
Scented towels/'feminine' washes/VIPOO; I know people will say men use this too but it's telling that it's a woman in the ad using it; and it's getting worse. A friend is a Sexual Health Nurse; she works with teens a lot. She can't remember the last time she saw a teen with anything but a fully waxed pubis. I sure others can think of examples.

Being referred as a penis owner would give them an extra swagger...

Thats sad but probably true damn

Terrylene Fri 01-Dec-17 12:44:02

Although 'manhood' is a euphemism for male genitalia. They are inextricably entwined wink

TheGoalIsToStayOutOfTheHole Fri 01-Dec-17 13:16:07

I don't think many men would be concerned about being 'people with penises' somehow. They seem insanely proud of them so would probably be quite happy with this
