And then I came to female genitalia, and there just was not an equivalent word to willy. I think willy is a good and useful word, and that boys are lucky to have it, and I wish girls had something as neutral and free of baggage, which is why I used vulva.
I think this is very interesting and valid, but it did not make me want to change my language. My book is not an anatomy book - there are plenty of them out there already.
I did not want to use bottom, penis, or breasts, and vulva was used because I did not have a better word. Gender Some readers and reviewers have picked up on the fact that I do not use the word boy, girl, man or woman in the book. This is very much on purpose.
I feel quite strongly that we are too attached to the binaries of gender and sex, and believe that this is unhealthy. Although we live in an era of increasingly gender equality, we also live in a world of exaggerated gender performance, where hyper feminine and masculine bodies are idealised, and where babies are given gender reveal parties while still in utero.
When I first heard of these parties, I honestly thought they were for people who were transitioning to make their new identities official.
Anyway, back to the book. I did not want to say that boys have willies and girls have vulvas, that girls grow boobs. I wanted to keep open the possibility that anyone could have these genitals, or may or may not grow breasts.
So in the book I liked the idea of rebranding these perceived defects as just part of the amazing variety that humans come in:.Are you a nudist do want to learn a language
