Despite the sexualization of women’s bodies in the spaces all around us, there is women’s anatomy that wasn’t fully discovered until the late 90s.
She makes so many good point, but I particularly love her point about profanity near the end of the video.
In Dutch, the word for genitals literally translates to “shame area”. Yet this is the place we connect in such a profound way with our partners. For women, it is also the portal to all human life on this planet.
We often feel so defined by our genitals– ask anyone that’s had cancer attack there– yet we have so much shame about them. Women in particular are pushed to manipulate their vaginas in bizarre ways- waxing, excessive douching, “feminine wipes”, etc–that actually disturb the natural balance and can cause various issues.
Vaginas are the portal to all human life on this planet.
Let that sink in. The portal to all human life on this planet.
That is nothing to be ashamed of. Nothing that is “gross” or “nasty” or that needs to be fixed. It is magnificent, powerful, and majestic. Think of it as such, and treat it accordingly.
