**Internoob**00:12, 4 April 2012 (UTC)- How bout we just do brachiovaginal then? The image is more professional than the amateur anal fisting shot. Controversy is subjective and it could attract more readers and contributors. I don't find vulvas objectionable, in fact most people on the planet have one and at one point or another have inserted their own or others peoples fingers or even hands or fists inside their vagina. I do find Christianity terribly objectionable, I dislike muslims and ghetto black people, and so large majorities of people around the world, but that doesn't mean we would avoid a koranic term or one from African American Vernacular English, but we can go ahead and collapse the image, anyone that wants to see a picture can choose to.Lucifer (talk) 07:36, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
