i didn't go into the thread (didn't want to subject myself to bhm vs sexuality today), but the title alone makes me wonder:
would it be the same reaction if he said "enema"?
is bhm not particularly keen on the "enema for health maintenance" line of thinking?
did that line of thinking generally go out by the 50s? i know some people still do them (saline, coffee), but it doesn't seem overly popular.
and, unrelated, but it's derogatory to refer to transgender persons as being "trannies". i thought that was known.
