: : There was a discussion about gender of various concepts, and the issue of the camel toe comes to mind. What is the male equivalent of the camel toe?
: The male equivalent would be "bulge". You have to say it a certain way, at a certain time, but it's just plain "bulge".
: My understanding is that "Camel Toe" was coined or became popular from a sketch on the "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" show back in 2001. There was a character named Camel Toe Annie who came out waering sweat pants and did a dance with this ridiculously obvious camel toe. Not that I can stay up that late; somebody e-mailed me a clip.
Well thank you all y'all (that's pure Virginian, they tell me) for improving my education or at least my linguistic competence: camel toes, squirrels and lunch boxes hava just entered my consciousness. Cod, it was for men. I had such a literal mind, not thinking that at my age I still had so much vocabulary still to learn. Keeps us humble, it does . . .
