who the heck did not know what a freaking belt loop is? If you don't know what they are, what did you call them "the little fabric strap things that my belt goes through that helps my pants stay up"?

Maybe, possibly could understand not knowing a tumbleweed but that too is a little hard to swallow.

Mitty,

..."didn't" being the key word. I would guess that most "moms" of today would simply throw out the garment and charge a new one on her VISA, complaining about how everything is made in China and being a mom is so hard.

It's called a vagina consisting of the outer and inner labia, clitoris, vulva and opening. How about a few pictures to accompany this description?
