First is one discussing vaginas that actually centres women and girls

Next is one that is critical of prostitution - but you’ll note only for trafficked males who are from cultures where homosexual sex is taboo and who should very much be supported to do something else. They aren’t ‘representative of prostitution in Germany’ at all. Yeah, because ‘representative’ are the females working in the legalised industry of course.

Probably not particularly relevant but today's Private Eye has a short piece regarding "guidance in relation to language around gender".

"Some, er, cis women at the paper are still simmering. "Look at this bollocks." says one."

Cisgendering is misgendering indeed. wink

Seems there is a change of tone of late

Oh love the raising the skirt one.

I wonder if Sheela Na gigs were for that reason too?

Oh yes I see they are. Thought they were primarily fertility related.

The guardian is forcing journalists to use 'cis'?!!
