fat pony tongue

So, the Navelgazing Midwife has a post (which I found through Susie Bright's blog) about fat vaginas. I'm posting it here because there is some good information that larger women may want to have when at the OB/GYN, but I think it's also a good example of how size-supportive and size-phobic information can be blended together so insidiously that it's hard to see where one ends and the other begins.

The post, and some of the comments, contain mentions of gastric bypass surgery, so be aware of that if you may find it upsetting.

She should have just stuck to the comments about the speculum and condoms and left it at that, and not gone into the stuff about sex and orgasms.

I can understand a midwife not being able to afford more expensive speculums, so the DIY thing is okay...I'm very midwife-positive. But the rest of the stuff about tampons and sex and all was pointless. The whole post just seems to be "I used to have a fat vahjayjay but I lost 2497439473 pounds and now life is OMG so bettah!"

Yeah, that's a pretty decent summary.

That, and the one legitimately interesting piece of medical technique hidden in there, about the condom-on-speculum.
