Well, a chair, being an upright construction of hard materials, is
obviously a phallic symbol, and as such is inappropriate as it is a
sign of the perpetuation of the phallocracy. A more feminine title
would be "Bean", as in bean bag, or the shape of the ovary. However, we
wouldn't want to perpetuate mysognistic stereotypes of 'clitocracy', so
a more neutral piece of furniture should be adopted. Perhaps "Couch"
would work. It is inclusive, as multiple persons can sit on a couch,
and it rhyms with "coach", who encourages performance, rather than
dictating it.

All hail the Couch.
