On Language

Jezebel ran a piece about this course at Vassar for men on understanding women's language. The course was canceled after just one class, mainly because it had turned into an offensive lecture reinforcing gender and racial stereotypes.

But it got me thinking. Yesterday we wrote about how navigating certain relationship dynamics can be difficult. But do you feel like you use different language to talk about sex and relationships than your partner does? Do men and women use different vocabulary?
