"Non C-Section Deliveries"


Aw, c’mon now. Really?

Everyone is always trying to avoid the ol’ 800-pound vagina in the room.

Well, I don't know..... "vaginal deliveries" could be confused with so many other things. .............................................. I'll let you know when I come up with one..........

NON C- section? It appears doctors trying to rid the general public of the notion that babies, once upon a time, came out of the woman's you-know-what. Just like the doctors did before, when they invented a nice sterile way to feed babies that didn't involve women using their... you know-what's like animals.

This puts me in mind of Maude Lebowski:

"My art has been commended as being strongly vaginal, which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina. They don't like hearing it and find it difficult to say, whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson."

You know what, it's just not as good unless Julianne Moore is saying it, so here you go. You're welcome!

Ewww...people have "non-c-section deliveries"? Gross.
What is this, the 1600's? Why would you want to go through that when you can just be sliced and diced and have a baby tossed into your arms?

On a serious note though, that's sad. They're making it seem like c-sections are the norm and vaginal births are the exception. But if women don't start fighting back and speaking up, they will be.

I think they should just rename them "Potentially Lethal Nonstandard Births Driven By Irresponsible Women Wanting to Have Mystic Experiences Through Unauthorized Vaginal Utilization."

Rebecca, THANK YOU for referencing The Big Lebowski. Those comments really tied the room together.

Whoa. "Unauthorized Vaginal Utilization" might be the new best term of 2012. Sure, it's only the 6th, but I have a good feeling about this one.

Wow! What could the Tennessee Department of Health possibly be thinking? This is a disgrace!

I think someone just couldn't deal with writing the word "vaginal", which seems pretty infantile. TN is in the bible belt though, so it's not surprising.
