He would not relent even when actual gynecologists chimed in

Women are used to dudes mansplaining all types of subjects to them — politics, technology, our own jobs, sexual harassment, feminism, our opinions, things we never asked for their opinion on in the first place — you name it. But one man took things to another level over the weekend when he mansplained a body part women possess that he does not.

It all started when The Guardian tweeted an article titled “Me and my vulva: 100 women reveal all.” The article was about a photo series (and film) created by Laura Dodsworth called Womanhood, where she shares “stories of 100 women and gender non-conforming people through portraits of their vulvas” meant to decrease stigmas around women’s bodies.

Naturally, this seemed the perfect opportunity for a man named Paul to educate us gals on our body part’s correct name — which he believes is “vagina.”

If there are any more Pauls reading this, the vulva is “the external female genitalia that surround the opening to the vagina; collectively these consist of the labia majora, the labia minora, clitoris, vestibule of the vagina, bulb of the vestibule, and the glands of Bartholin.” The vagina is located in front of the rectum and behind the bladder (i.e. inside the body). This is actual irrefutable scientific fact, no matter how completely convinced Paul is otherwise.

It seems poor Paul may be forever known as the Man Who Tried Unsuccessfully To Explain Female Anatomy To Females.

Annoying, quite annoying. Like when people try to explain Texas to me when they've never been there. Or when people try to tell you what you're like when they only know you from a forum.

There is a clear difference between vulva and vagina: one is the exterior aperture of the female sex organ, the other is the elastic, muscular canal of the female genital tract.

It was a recognized difference going back to the Latin: cunus and vagina.  That was lost when French disappeared as the principal language in Britain (around the time of Edward III).  The term 'cunt' acquired the status of a 'naughty' word beginning in the court of Kathrine of France, and became an avoided word in regular English.  Hence the loss of the distinction.

Using the term vagina to mean "vulva" can pose medical or legal confusion; for example, a person's interpretation of its location might not match another's interpretation of the location.  A lot of rape trials were lost because of the confusion, until the modern uniform criminal code (in the US) broadened the definition of rape, and clarified the parts.
