Regarding Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May Gaskin, and other thoughts on the history of the words we use:
1. The book has to be read as a product of its time. ...
2. Remember how in the book Stephen was a major default authority? Well, that was happening in real life too, and it really rubbed my mom the wrong way...it felt sort of cult-y to her and also very, and ironically, patriarchal... .
i have recently run across a woman on a major UK parenting board (it's horrible, trust me) and she very happily told everyone that they called her daughters parts
i thought she was joking as in the same sentence went on to say she told her kids that the storks brought babies,
but alas, she was serious.
i just could not believe that anyone would use money to refer to their private parts.
i was shouted off the board for saying so.
