I Guess It's Surprisingly Racy Tuesday

Well: Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games mascots likened to ‘clitoris in trainers’.

Kudos to the headline writer. It's quite a mouthful.

There's so much win in this story, it's hard to know where to start. Let's try here:
But the little red figures have swiftly been likened to clitorises with smiley faces. They bear a notable resemblance to the giant inflatable, red clitoris put up opposite the Eiffel Tower on last year’s International Women’s Day by a feminist group campaigning for more education and scientific research on the organ whose sole function is the female orgasm.

The last paragraph drops hints, but lacks directness:
Julia Pietri, a feminist writer and publisher who led a street-art campaign for more eduction on the clitoris, said of the Paris mascot comparisons: “I find it amusing because I campaigned for a long time to raise awareness of the anatomy of the clitoris, and four years ago when we launched, few people could recognise a clitoris. So today I’m happy and rejoicing that, thanks to all that’s happened in feminism, people can at least recognise the clitoris. It shows it’s now in popular culture and that’s a win.”

What she should have said was "At least men will be able to find it now."
