No, that's on the main page. I'm gonna gripe a bit.
Apparently, people who take this seriously have neglected to [[DidNotDoTheResearch consider anything other than their pre-fabricated conclusion]]. The general shape of the gun is dictated by physics. The general shape of a sword provides more reach than a shorter bladed weapon, which translates directly into greater safety. And so on.
Well, I don't think anyone's claiming that guns were designed to look like penises. Just that they are similar enough to penises that they can take on that role, psychologically.
* Plus they're an obvious representation of power and masculine strength. It's called symbolism.
** That said, the page quote is a great comeback. I'm ''so'' using that next time some idiot invokes this trope and then expects a cookie for his/her "wit."
* I've said sorta the same thing before. My counter-argument goes something like "So there's no real practical use for anything which is non-hollow and longer than it is wide? It's only use is just for being like a penis?"
