Today In Cheerful News…

November 12, 2009

Some researchers with a bit of sense from University College London have published a report in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology that effectively says: “and what the fuck is a ‘perfect vagina’, anyway?”

The research is a review of all existing studies  on cosmetic labial surgery, and the BBC report that

“consultant gynaecologist Sarah Creighton and psychologist Lih-Mei Liao challenged the ethics of offering women surgery to address such insecurities [such as discomfort in tight clothing or embarrassment in front of a sexual partner], suggesting it was adverts for a “homogenised, pre-pubescent genital appearance” which created these anxieties in the first place.”

On a different topic, the Red Arrows now have their first female pilot, Flt Lt Kirsty Moore. Yay!
