    Those words were at one time on the filter (back from when I purchased the place) they have (obviously) been removed since on a trial basis. It's a hard decision, yes they are the proper medical terms, but at the same time we have some really young kids here and it is not our job to subject people's kids to those words. So as of now the mention of them is allowed in proper context but there is no reason to go extreme on the use.

    I don't mean to offend anyone,(and I will edit if this is a problem) but I just don't believe minors should be filtered from knowing and appropriately using the proper terminology of their genitals. If it these terms aren't used in a negative, insulting, or innapropriate out of context manor I just don't see a reason for blocking them.

    Edit: Thanks for the clarification Andrew, we were typing at the same time it seems. My point wasn't to subject anyones children to anything and if I need to edit I absolutely will. I went back to college to finish my degree in nursing so saying, writing, and typing these terms are kind of common place for me at the moment, I'n not trying to push any boundaries here.

    Why don't we save Andrew the time, and do some editing?
    There's been debate about this before. The old forum software had "penis" on its list of banned terms, for which it would substitute something like "male reproductive organ." But that would frequently result in hilarious misposts when people would leave the first "s" out of "capensis."
    I'm of the opinion that "penis" should stay. It's the proper anatomical term; it's not lewd. I also want this to be a place where minors can participate, but censoring the actual names of body parts is too much if you ask me. If parents are really offended by that word and keep their kids off this site for seeing it, they'll probably find all sorts of other things to find objectionable. I'm often one of the first people to chime in when things start getting inappropriate, that word in and of itself isn't.
    It's about how it's used. I'd rather some people be mildly uncomfortable by direct language than encourage young forumers to use rude slang or try to circumvent the profanity filter by other means.

    Yeah... shouldn't that be the other way around? At least the former is a not-so-rude synonym. Even as an insult it's more meaningful, being a descriptive aphorism for being stubborn or difficult. The other one is just kind of mean-spirited.
    Anyways, I want to hear more about what this guy's problem is. Do enlighten us, back2eight.

    If only it was used that way... but that word is rarely used without the following hole.

    Good point, good point.

    I must admit, I don't mind using these words when used judiciously. Yes, even the short name for a horse X donkey hybrid. ;-)
