While updat­ing the kids’ col­or­ing links on my site today, I came across this lovely God­dess Col­or­ing Book for grown-​​ups. It’s free! I plan to print out the pages and have some nice, relax­ing time with my mark­ers tomor­row. Hope, I’m think­ing of you!

I still have a hymen (or “vaginal corona”) ? And I thought I just had the box it came in!

Swedish group renames hymen ‘vagi­nal corona’

…(T)he term hymen is rooted in the Greek word for mem­brane. Rather than a frag­ile mem­brane that breaks, how­ever, the hymen is actu­ally mul­ti­ple folds of mucous membrane.

The vagi­nal corona is a per­ma­nent part of a woman’s body through­out her life. It doesn’t dis­ap­pear after she first has sex­ual inter­course, and most women don’t bleed the first time.

After read­ing the arti­cle, I have to say that I agree with the rea­son­ing as to why there should be a name change, but I don’t really think it’s going to go far. It’s far bet­ter to just con­tinue to work on tak­ing vir­gin­ity off the ridicu­lous pedestal upon which it has been placed than on try­ing to replace one word with another.

So What’s Different?

I saw the topic and thought, “Gosh, maybe I’ve missed some­thing obvi­ous. I’ve never been so good at this Girly-​​Girl thing. I should watch that.”

I watched it. I don’t feel enlightened.

Maybe it’s just been too long since I thought about this stuff, but what’s so dif­fer­ent about apply­ing make-​​up for 40-​​year-​​olds than it is for 20-​​year-​​olds? I get that people’s skin type might change, but that’s an indi­vid­ual thing. Where did this “no mas­cara on the bot­tom lashes” thing come from, and why?

Maybe some­one who reads women’s mag­a­zines or watches TV can give me a clue here.

(Yep, this is a very shal­low entry.)

It’s sex ed, really!

I know you’re all torn up to hear that Eric Rudolph is mis­er­able in prison.1

“Using soli­tary con­fine­ment, Super­max is designed to inflict as much mis­ery and pain as is con­sti­tu­tion­ally per­mis­si­ble,” he wrote in a letter.

No, really? That’s part of that whole deter­rent fac­tor, ya know? Jail isn’t sup­posed to be a vaca­tion. Maybe you should have con­sid­ered the pos­si­bil­ity of los­ing a lit­tle time in the moun­tains before you took to being a bomber, Rudolph?

Of course, he still has his life to com­plain about, unlike some of his victims.

My real ques­tion, I sup­pose, is why is this news? What is our atten­tion being redi­rected away from?

Have you bought emergency contraception?

I just read about it at Sex in the Pub­lic Square. I haven’t thought about it before, but what she says makes sense. If you’re a sex­u­ally active adult who could tech­ni­cally con­ceive, but you don’t want to have a child right now, it’s a good thing to keep on hand.

I’d be inter­ested in hear­ing about your expe­ri­ences in buy­ing it OTC, if you do so. It isn’t an issue for us, so we don’t have a rea­son to buy any.

Spain bans unhealthily thin models

In a very unpop­u­lar move, Spain has banned appear­ances by fash­ion mod­els who’s body mass index is too low.

Italy is con­sid­er­ing fol­low­ing suit. The lan­guage in the leg­is­la­tion makes it clear that the pur­pose of the ban is to encour­age health­ier media images, due to the grow­ing inci­dence of eat­ing dis­or­ders diag­nosed every year.

Frankly, I can’t begin to imag­ine the U.S. gov­ern­ment even con­sid­er­ing that kind of leg­is­la­tion. We do have a freer press here (on the sur­face, at least), but that doesn’t explain all the differences.
