On Thursday I saw that I had a very unusual notification of Facebook. Apparently one of my posts had been reported as being pornographic! Of course I had to find out which one as I would never dream of doing such thing - especially with my mum and several older relatives on my friends list..
Turned out it was one were I had mentioned what my 7 year old son had said that morning about getting his body parts mixed up. Its been a running joke in our family since he was a toddler and just learning to speak. He at that age had decided that if his boy bits included a willy then his sister's girl bits must have one too. I decided that to save confusion I would tell him the proper name for that part of a girl's anatomy. He took great delight at 3 in his new word clitoris.
So on Thursday morning he was running around the landing telling us that he didn't have a willy but a clitoris. I decided that I would share this on Facebook as I thought it was a funny anecdote. What I didn't realise that my use of the correct anatomical term for that part of female anatomy would fall foul of Facebook's porn crawler!
Funnily you can use the word willy as this is obviously far too English for an American corporation to be scared of ;-) So in honour of being marked as a pornographer here is a photograph of clitoria ternatea
So would you dare to use the word clitoris on Facebook?
