This woman dumped a guy who said her vagina 'did not smell right'

A true feminist icon.

If you've ever dumped someone, you'll know that it's far from the greatest feeling in the world.

There's the guilt, the shame, the unwavering feeling that you've just done something that you're absolutely going to regret two weeks down the line when you're lying in bed alone eating a spicebag and wondering where it all went so, so wrong.

All of this, of course, is redundant though if the dumpee happens to be a bit of a douche.

Or a lot of a douche.

Or someone who tells a woman that their vagina doesn't "smell right."

In that case, doing the dumping is, somehow, never that bad really.

This is what happened to blogger and doctor, Jen Gunter.

Way back when, Dr. Jen was dating a guy who she says was, to put it simply, "an ass."

In a blog post that was shared to warn people about the dangers (and stupidity) associated with putting Vicks VaproRub up your vagina (yes, we know), Jen delved into a little anecdote about her past dating life and the perils of sleeping with men who think vaginas ought to smell a certain way.

And, seeing as she's a literal gynaecologist, Jen does know a thing or two about female sexual organs.

In the post, she said that her then-fella suggested that her vagina "did not smell right."

He also used to make regular comments about the way that she dressed and wore her hair.

"When it came around to telling me how my vagina could be better it finally clicked that this is a form of control that men often use.

"Fortunately I am an appropriately confident vagina expert and I had a light bulb moment and dumped his sorry ass.

"I realise this may border on TMI, but honestly if it happened to me I bet it has happened to other women."

We bet the same, Jen.

We bet the same.

The gynaecologist's post has since received a lot of attention from others who empathised with her story, and thanked her for her warning against using "random" products to clean vaginas.

After all, the only thing we should be cleaning it with is water.

And if you think something might actually be wrong down there, please just go see a doctor.
