True story: A secondary-school biology teacher who I know was once teaching sex education to some 13-14 y/o kids, and after she wrote something on the board, one of the girls piped up with "Miss, you've spelt that wrong - it's fagina, with an F".

In the mid-60's, when my brother was a young kid, attacked in Central Park by a gang of boys, he was saved in the nick of time by a cop and then had to testify in court against the attackers. The judge was livid that my little brother hesitated in saying eckerwecker and unsympathetically yelled, outloud, "It's penis, penis, PENIS!"

I have a little girl just shy of two years old. She is already developing a thick (albeit south-county) Rhode Island accent. This means the "r" sounds are optional. The hilarity that has so far ensued:

*Pointing to Grandma's bright blouse* "Grandma's shit! Shit!"
*Desiring big-girl silverware with her dinner* "Fuck pwease? I wanna fuck! FUUUUUUCK! Pweeeease?"

She's actually being very subtle with her vowels - sheh-wit and fow-ak - which is the proper New England pronunciation of shirt and fork. To relatives from New Jersey and Virginia, well, it's a little startling.

Daughter: Why is there a doctor? Me: To help take out the baby. Daughter: But how? Me: He just uses his hands, and the mommy pushes. Daughter: Where is the baby? Me: In the mommy's tummy. Daughter: But where does the baby come out?

I point at her crotch. She looks at me like I'm crazy.

Daughter: Noooo!!

Oh my god, that's horrible. And the courtroom part, that's A Christmas Story level of trauma. Your poor brother.

And, embarassingly, I thought you wrote Peckerwrecker, as in, they are a pair: Pecker + Peckerwrecker (Penis + Vagina).

And I thought, "Man, the 60's."

My sister-in-law's cool mom is an androgynous, butch lesbian, who identifies as female. Recently my (other) sister's 5-year-old told me that "Grandma is a man". I said, "No, honey, she's a woman--she had Auntie like your mom had you." And he said, "No, no, she's a man! She's a maaaaaan." Note the use of "she" throughout.

My six-year-old daughter, just today, wanted to know "what having a penis feels like." I told her it's a part of our bodies, and we've never known what it is like not to have one, so it just feels normal. Just like her vulva feels normal to her, because she's never known what it is like not to have one.

When she looked at me, obviously confused, I told her that it is like having fingers. You've always had your fingers, so it just feels normal to have them. They don't feel special. Having a penis or a vulva is just like having fingers.

That satisfied her. My six-year-old son then contributed "PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENIS, VUUUUUUUUUUUUUULVA." Which was also helpful.

Also, this is the transcript of a conversation my daughter had with her mother in early July:

Daughter: Squeeze it.

Daughter: Play games with it.

Mother: What games?

Daughter: "Squeeze The Penis."

This also happened, a few years ago at a gym-type place: I couldn't find where she'd run off to, and I looked in the unisex kids' bathroom, and there she was...standing on the edge of the urinal, dress hiked up, holding on to the pipe over the urinal, and peeing into it.

she was SO PROUD that she had "peed like [her brother]!"

Yup, that's about right. My son went through pretty much the same train of thought when he was three-ish. The gears were turning and you could almost smell smoke as he was trying to categorize people into man/woman, boy/girl, penis/pajina, no boobies/boobies groups. We tried to answer his questions straight-faced. Tried. Didn't always succeed.
posted by plinth at 3:05 AM on September 2, 2011


When my son was that age, we taught the correct names for body parts, and it always seemed to freak out adults when he would say penis. We had neighbours try to get him to use silly words, and he would cross his arms and say, "well, I don't know what YOU have, but I have a penis. Here, I'll show you....at which point I'd stop him from demonstrations.

Hey kittensofthenight: Wikipedia says it better than I can:
The character is a satire of increasingly common YouTube videos featuring mediocre or even bad, but egotistical, singers who film themselves singing as a form of self-promotion, and who ignore the realistic or cruel comments of "haters" commenting on their videos.
Of course, Miranda (Colleen in real life) is actually a former musical theatre student and very talented. The Miranda videos have gotten a lot of traction in the theatre community and now she regularly performs as herself and the character at live shows and cabaret events around the country.

I grew up in the late 60s/early 70s, and my mom was a nurse, which meant we always used proper anatomical and biological words for everything, which means I, then age 4, was really confused at the doctor's office when the nurse directed me to "Tinklebell" in a cup. I looked at mom and asked, "Does she mean urinate?"

Tinklebell. I remember it vividly.

I hated the euphemisms my parents told me as a child. I couldn't listen to the Goo Goo Dolls for years, but in retrospect, that was probably a bonus.

zombieflanders, yeah... that occurred to me, after I implemented my "brilliant" strategy. I still can't consider pecker, or ding-a-ling, or any of those other ridiculous nicknames. They're just so silly. With his speech issues, the anatomical names are even scarier. He very frequently mixes up words and meanings. "Open" is "I'm stuck," "angry cat" is "I'm frustrated" and "Burger King" is for some reason "kaopectate." What are the chances that "penis" could be his code word for "hi, what's your name?"

It took me forever to figure out the kaopectate thing. Really, forever.
posted by mitzyjalapeno at 8:36 AM on September 2, 2011


There are people who consider "pecker" to be an appropriate childish nickname for penis? I always felt like pecker was a particularly bad/sweary one, but now that I reflect on it, I'm not sure why that is.

As the father of a just-over-two year old, we are starting to get into this territory. How my son comes up with the ways he pronounces some words completely wrong, and other, similar words he has no problem with, is just fascinating to see. He's a HUGE Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan, and there's a thing in that show called "Toodles" - which he pronounces as "Toofuck". So it is absolutely hilarious to us when he is yelling at the top of his voice while watching the show "Ohhhhh Toooooooofuuuuuuck!"

Oh, and my wife insists on calling his penis his "twinkle", so now he does too... When I say "there's your penis", he says "No daddy, that's silly. That's my twinkle" - I wonder if he's confused when he sings his favourite song, which happens to be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

This so reminds me of the girl I nannied for two summers 15-16 years ago. Age three, adorable, smart as a whip, self-assured and curious.

Her mother, one fateful day (something along these lines, as I recall it): "We taught her about body parts this weekend. She... well, she's very curious about them now. We're open about this kind of thing and accept our bodies, so feel free to discuss it with her in your comfort zone."
Me: "Okay, always love hearing her questions."

A few hours later, in the backyard.
Girl: "MY BROTHER HAS A PENIS."
Me: "Yes, that's right dear."
Girl: "I have a VAGINA. And so do you."
Me: "Yes! Are you having fun in the swimming pool?"
Girl: "Our neighbor lady has a vagina too."
Me: "...yes."
Girl: "And my daddy has a penis."
Me: "......yes, he does. They're parts of our bodies, like our arms and hands and legs. But they're more private than those."
Girl: "My mommy said that too!!!"
I nodded, smiling.
Girl, at the top of her lungs: "BOYS HAVE PENISES AND GIRLS HAVE VAGINAS!!!!"
Me: "Honey, you remember what private means? Shouting isn't private, okay?"
Girl: "yeah okay I know. But it's true."

In a supermarket later that day.
Girl, to a random man: "Hi mister."
Man, smiling at the adorable curly-haired blonde girl: "Hello sweetheart!"
Girl, to same man: "My daddy has a penis and my mommy has a vagina. My babysitter has a vagina too. You're a boy, so you have a penis."
Man: "............"
Me: "Dear, it's true, but remember what we said? Those are private parts."
Girl: "BOYS HAVE PENISES AND GIRLS HAVE VAGINAS!!!"
Me: "You remember what private means...?"
Girl: "yeah. But it's true."
Man stifles laughter.
