Using the term “bodies with vaginas” to refer to cis women and trans men is not a good idea
The medical journal The Lancet is trying to include trans men in their coverage by referring to “bodies with vaginas”. The intention may be good, but....
Tumblr media
I can understand the arguments made by the good people of the medical journal The Lancet when they decided to use the term  “bodies with vaginas” when referring to the physiology of cis women and trans men. 
But if the purpose is to include trans men, using the term trans men works well, as does – as Joss Prior points out – the phrase “assigned female at birth”.
Referring to cis women and trans men as “bodies with vaginas” is alienating. This was not the writer’s intention, I am sure, but the phrase will remind many of the way sexists and misogynists have reduced cis women’s and trans men’s bodies to “bodies with vaginas”.
Do read the Lancet article, though. It contains a good presentation of  the exhibition called “Periods: A Brief History”, now found at the Vagina Museum in London, UK.

Joss Prior’s tweet (image above) reads:
You know, all this bullshit and fallout about semantics and using the wrong words could be avoided if they just use the language that Trans & Queer culture uses. What is wrong with 'afab'...??
