Twitter and Facebook are under fire for removing ‘vagina’ from ads for a gynecology book

London (CNN Business)Twitter removed advertisements for a book on gynecology because they used the word “vagina,” a prominent medical practitioner has claimed. “Our societal inability to say vagina like we say elbow is one reason I insisted on VAGINA in the title,” she said in a subsequent tweet. “When we’re not allowed to say a word the implication is it’s dirty or shameful. Not being able to buy an ad because of the word vagina for a book about vaginas is ridiculous.” Gunter’s initial tweet quoted an earlier post from Kensington Publishing, publisher of “The Vagina Bible.” The publisher shared…
