They use the term to purposefully make it sounds awful. If someone wants to do that, it's their prerogative. I just think they should own it instead of hiding behind, "well, it fits the definition." I think that is kind of what terra is getting at.

And I for one do not think she is rude. Outspoken, yes. Rude, no.
I agree. I was thinking the same thing as Terra.

I would feel so uncomfortable discussing my boys' sexual organs at a mommy group. Seems like such a strange topic.
