The sexist, toxic history of douching

Holy shit… I don’t know what’s worse, the whole aforementioned history or that bearded dude in the Love Apricots ad.

Even I’ve thought it was messed up that “douche” was colloquially used as an insult, as it implies that anything coming from a woman is disgusting. It’d probably make more sense to use the word “colonic”.

Incidentally, I’m considering selling t-shirts that say “Dude, you’re being such a colonic right now!”, but that’s neither here nor there.
