That is really interesting and relevant.

Unlike what a lot of people might associate with usage of the word 

So I’m glad you defined it.  So any people put off by this term could replace 
by this relevant definition.

PS: for the rest I still believe it has a sexist history (it comes from the 
word for “vagina”) and is more often used against women, so I don’t like its 
usage, but won’t ban a word, just comment on its usage (just like rms has been 
doing a lot).
