"It is absurd that women can only name their sex by the terms of phoney objectivity, the scientific terms which seek to push away the reality of the thing by talking about it in foreign tongues, clitoris, labia majora and minora, the glands of Bartholin for God's sake! The only other terms they may employ have been deformed by centuries of sadistic male use. You cunt, gash, slit, crack, slot ... Women have no names of their own for what is most surely their own. It ought to be possible to establish a woman's vocabulary of cunt, prideful, affectionate, accurate and bold."
- 'The Politics Of Female Sexuality', Germaine Greer in Oz, 1970.
