perhaps this is the start of his future career as a star surgeon! All thanks to you :)
Because it doesn't? The only people who make human parts a taboo are you. I live in Belgium next to the Netherlands, they use cancer as a swear word so it has a negative sound everytime I hear it. But when you use your mind you should know it's not some cute word for kids to say.
I really don't understand how someone could say that. VAGINA IS A NATURAL BODYPART. Maybe if you had a close family member with cancer you would know better. Imagine a kid happily screaming cancer while someone in the restaurant lost somebody because of cancer or somebody there actually has it. How can that possibly be better? 'MURICA i guess.
I hate to add to this ridiculous conversation, but... I lost my nonna to dementia. I immediately started looking for ways to avoid that ever happening to me. When you've lost somebody to something, any mention of it just opens up another wound. I can't, for the life of me, think of how a kid screaming "vagina" is worse, in terms of insulting or hurting other people, than "cancer". Both would be embarassing. But I only know of one person who lost their life to "vagina", and that's because it had teeth. Like a Langolier. It's pretty scary.
Your son sounds a little young to be a med school professor. Just sayin'
