Female Bodies.. Named
Do you like the word Titties or does it offend you? This got Amanda and I thinking today.
There are an awful lot of nicknames for female body parts. We have nicknames for breasts, vaginas, crotch areas in general. Sidenote: it pisses me off when people refer to the entire crotchie region as a vagina. Anyway. What do males have nicknames for? Their penises. That's it. Why don't we nickname our arms.. legs.. noses? I guess we do, I should give some more credit. We have schnoz. Sniffer. Whatever. Still, it's weird isn't it?
What does that mean then? Does it further prove the objectification of women? Or, it is just as simple as the fact that maybe women have more parts that are deemed 'private'? Why is that?
What do you think?
