This is primarily a thread for those who are gender noncomforming, who may not, and often don't, call certain parts what others might call them by looking, because they do not identify their gender in alignment with what certain body parts are considered to be per gender/sex.

Sometimes, folks will call their parts those in alignment with their gender, for instance, calling a vulva or clitoris a penis, or calling a penis a cunt/vulva/what have you. But sometimes people also create their own terminology, too, particularly if their gender identity isn't man or woman or otherwise within the binary.

This obviously isn't exclusive, though, to gender noncomforming people. Plenty of people who identify as men or women call their genitals or other body parts words/names of their own design and liking.
