    Oh lord, yes: same here. I'll write 'cock', but, erm, I don't say it and only wince when my older kids do, although I don't stop them saying it. I was bought up on 'tuppance and tinky' lol (which really wouldn't go down well in a sex scene at all, or adult conversation, lol, so it's mostly 'dick' this end....).

    Here it goes: Manhood - "She eyed his swollen manhood with hunger".
    Oh... ughh. No. Manhood's... purple prose, way too much of it. Who the hell says manhood?

    Not only a terrible sounding word, but a threateningly patriarchal one - one that associates the idea of being a man with physical genitalia. Gross.

    Oh, and "male member" takes a close second.
    It's becoming increaisingly trendy these days for women to eat less (food, obviously) then men, so I find the example with the manhood nicely put; it in a way intertwines bits of female and male principles.

    In my days it was halfpenny pronounced 'ape-ney'. Inflation has no boundaries.

    Used it on occasions as a 'polite' reference in mixed company.

    I must've been too abstract in the explanation of my opinion.

    Delete the cover, luckyscars, what's the use of it? Everyone here including you knows I make spelling errors way too rarely

    She's hear for it. I wonder if it dances around and sings songs to her. "The Song of the Manhood." LMAO
    Sometimes, I wrestle with my demons. Other times, we just snuggle.

    I have a special loathing for U.S corporate jargon. Using a word like 'alignment' in place of 'agreement' because it sounds fancier (and less involving of an autonomous human brain, probably not coincidentally). I despise ending requests with 'ASAP' (which in my opinion should stand for 'As Sent by A Prick') and idiotic terms like streamlining as a given.

    I also really hate when people talk about 'actioning' something as opposed to just doing it: "Items on my schedule are ready to be actioned." It's a bullshit term that makes the speaker sound like a budget Power Ranger.

    Pretty much anything that serves to erode the personality and creative nuance of communication is terrible.



    Dear God, man, I hear you. I work in corporate hell and this jargon is everywhere...zero-meaning, zero-impact language.

    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    I remember being puzzled by the phrase 'Keep yer 'and on yer 'apeney love' LOL, But you are right, it depends on the context; writing a love scene, in conversation, talking to the Doctor; all different probably.
