Cervical cancer fund advises that vaginas be referred to as 'bonus holes' as to not offend transgender people

A British cancer fund is recommending that the word "vagina" not be used, but instead the term "bonus hole," so as to not offend transgender people.

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is self-described as the "U.K.'s leading cervical cancer charity." The cancer fund partnered with the LGBT Foundation – a British charity dedicated to LGBTQ issues with a mission to "empower LGBTQ+ individuals and our diverse communities to realize their full potential, every day."

In September 2020, the two charities collaborated on a guide titled: "Language to use when supporting trans men and/or non-binary people."

The guide was published on the website's "Professionals" section and is addressed to medical professionals.

"Using the correct language when referring to someone’s gender identity is a simple and effective way to demonstrate support and recognition," the guide reads. "If incorrect language is used without being corrected, it can cause someone to feel hurt or distressed. This may lead them to leave and to eventually seek support elsewhere."

"This glossary explains some of the words we use in our information or that you might hear used by a patient," the guide states. "This is not a definitive list and we recognize that some people may prefer different words. It is still necessary to check the words or phrases your patient would prefer."

The glossary features LGBTQ terms such as cisgender, deadnaming, gender identity, genderqueer, non-binary, and transphobia.

The list also has the term "bonus hole." The cancer charity defines bonus hole as: "An alternative word for the vagina. It is important to check which words someone would prefer to use."

The glossary also advised medical professionals to use the term "front hole" instead of the word "vagina."

On Wednesday, "bonus hole" was a trending topic on Twitter as numerous commenters lampooned the guide.

Evolutionary biologist Heather Heying said, "Bonus hole - an alternative word for the vagina. Delusional - an alternative word for trans-identified women who cannot abide the fact that they have vaginas."

Ben Shapiro noted, "Pretty incredible that the orifice responsible for the propagation of the species is a mere 'bonus.'"

Comedian Leo Kearse tweeted, "The LGBT Foundation recommend using the term 'bonus hole" instead of 'vagina' to avoid offending trans people (this isn't satire btw). Everyone sure is worried about offending trans people but don't give a bonus hole about offending women, do they?"

The Hodgetwins joked, "South Park couldn’t even write this script."

One user said, "Also nothing says respect for women as equal humans like calling their genitalia a 'bonus hole.'"

A commenter wrote, "Call yourself a birthing person. Call yourself a chest feeder. Share your opportunities with men. Share your sports with men. Share your safe spaces with men. Share your bathrooms with men. Don’t use the term 'vagina' call it a 'bonus hole.' The left hates women."

A Twitter user added, "So we can now add 'Bonus hole' to the list of degrading terms used for women's bodies in the name of gender ideology. Does this language encourage you to get a cervical screening?"
