Are you ready to stop using terms like vajayjay and lady business? There is a new campaign to “legalize” a word that many people are afraid to say in public – vagina!
OB/GYN Dr. Leah Millheiser, one of the Legalize V campaign founders, joins The Doctors to explain more about the movement encouraging people to use the word vagina more freely, including a petition aimed at TV networks, Facebook, and Google to allow the word on their platforms.
“Somehow, vagina along the way became a dirty word… Women cringe saying vagina and the problem is it has a public health impact. We know that if young girls are not taught the proper genital terminology, they are [less] likely – if they are a victim of abuse – to report that abuse… and it’s also an issue of body image. We don’t want women to feel ashamed about their bodies, and as a gynecologist, I want women to come to me and feel comfortable, saying, ‘I have a problem with my vagina.’” Dr. Millheiser explains.
OB/GYN, Dr. Nita Landry says of the campaign, “I love it. It’s a part of your body. You have a leg, you have a heart, there are 7.5 billion people in the world and approximately half of them have a vagina.”
The Doctors have been promoting the correct use of anatomical body part names for 9 seasons and plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says, “We couldn’t agree more,” with the campaign.
If you want to get involved, you can go to the Legalize V website to sign the petition to stop the censorship of the word online and on social media.
