If you are lucky then you just had a bunch of actually blue waffles, all nice and edible looking appear on your google images. If you delved a little deeper then you totally found the picture of a woman’s vagina, blue tinted with lesions and pus and now you wish you had listened huh?

 In 2008, a picture of a blue waffle starting circulating the web with the cation ‘Bet you can’t find me on Google image search’, This was actually what is known as a ‘bait and switch’ as when people searched for it, it led to a website with the aforementioned vagina in all it’s full size glory.

It entered into the widespread public consciousness in June 2009 when it had an entry in that famous tool for giving yourself nightmare fuel, Urban Dictionary.

The ‘Facts’ that began circulating about Blue waffle is that a) It was an STD and that was it’s given name, b) That it could only be passed from women to men, and c) that it was caused by women not washing their vagina.

Fear not! It was unequivocally proven to be a hoax in 2011 when Dr. Amy Whitaker, an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics/Gynecology at the University of Chicago Hospital was asked to weigh in on the matter and posted a blog post putting the matter to rest stating, “There is no disease known as “blue waffle disease,” in the medical world. There is no disease that causes a blue appearance on the external genitalia”

Lets address the facts then shall we? Everybody said it was a new STD, It’s not. Everybody said it could only be passed from females to males because of improper hygiene on the woman’s part…Whilst the misogyny is a whole other box to unwrap, let’s just focus on one little thing in that sentence shall we? A woman does not have to wash her actual vagina! They basically come with a self clean function! A quick wash if you got something in there you shouldn’t is fine, and surrounding areas should be kept clean, but the actual baby cave should certainly not be repeatedly washed with soap and stuff because it throws off the PH balance and can cause all kinds of gnarly problems.

The fact remains that whilst the blue was obviously photoshopped into the picture and some suspect photoshop was used to make it look worse than it actually was, the rest of the symptoms of Blue Waffle could actually be something as simple as Vaginitis, Which is NOT an STD and which nearly everyone blessed with a vagina gets at some point. Symptoms include, swelling, discolouration (not blue), itching, burning, pain, abnormal discharge and the need to pee every 5 minutes…I mean, come on! Don’t the girls have it bad enough without adding fake STD’s to the list!?
