Criticism has been arising after a cervical cancer trust recommended that vaginas should be renamed as “bonus holes” rather than their traditional names to avoid offending transgender people.
Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, a UK cancer fund, has been recommending the term for a while now. In fact, they have been suggesting it since September of 2020, according to an archived version of the website. However, the language has begun making an appearance recently on Twitter, users criticizing the fund for their demeaning change on female genitalia.
Though, this isn’t the first inclusive word they’ve introduced. In fact, the website has a number of inclusive words and their definitions listed, such as “gender identity” and “lgbtq”. This glossary was developed in alliance with the LGBT Foundation, a charity that protests for LGBT rights.
“Using the correct language when referring to someone’s gender identity is a simple and effective way to demonstrate support and recognition. If incorrect language is used without being corrected, it can cause someone to feel hurt or distressed,” the website reads. “This may lead them to leave and to eventually seek support elsewhere.”

“This glossary explains some of the words we use in our information or that you might hear used by a patient. This is not a definitive list and we recognise that some people may prefer different words. It is still necessary to check the words or phrases your patient would prefer.”
“Remember, everyone makes mistakes from time to time. It’s important that you acknowledge them, correct yourself, learn from them, and move on. Dwelling on mistakes could make the person you are talking to feel more uncomfortable,” the page continues.
The glossary also defined “bonus hole” as, “[a]n alternative word for the vagina.”
“It is important to check which words someone would prefer to use,” the definition continues. That’s an awkward conversation, as if just calling it a vagina wasn’t simple enough.
“Delusional – an alternative word for trans-identified women who cannot abide the fact that they have vaginas,” evolutionary biologist Heather Heying wrote.
“Cervix owners was bad enough. Now they are re-wording parts of women’s bodies to sound like perks at mini-golf?” Melissa Chen, contributing editor at The Spectator, said.
“Females really went from ‘women’ to ‘birthing people’ to ‘bonus holes’ in the span of 5 years,” Tom Pappert, editor-in-chief of Valiant News Lives, wrote.
The nicknames don’t end there though, for trans activists have also begun suggesting the use of other terms to refer to women, such as “birthing person” and “menstruating person”.
