your clit is a phallus

So I read this blog sometimes called Nouveau Queer. It’s a queer blog based in Montreal.

Here’s a recent post about the clitoris being defined in the dictionary as a phallus. Whee! I never thought of that before, but they do come from the same tissue…
Insertable Objects

Did you know also that there’s apparently a Phallological Museum in Iceland? phallus.is

well, you learn something new every day.

  1. It’s interesting you say that…I’m working on my Master’s of Human Sexuality Education, and we’ve read a lot about langauge, and how many people are upset about the clitoris being refered to as a phallus.

    On the other hand, when intersex children are born, they use a “phallometer” to determine whether they will “make” the baby a girl or a boy. A certain length = a penis, a smaller length = a clitoris. Anything inbetween in a “microphallus” (sometimes refered to as a macro clitoris…which sounds way more exciting).

    Don’t know where I was going with that, sorry, it’s friday.

    Oh, I’m Essin’ Em. I stalked you from Sinclair’s blog. Nice to “meet” you
