Insult? Or recognition that she needs help? ;-)

In some translations it is not the bull's leg, but the bull's phallus that
Gilgamesh throws at Innana -- a much more pointed insult to the goddess of
fertility. (And, I think, more apposite given Gilgamesh's recital of the
nasty things She had done to her human and animal lovers.) I wonder if
there is really a difference in possible translations, or the references
to "leg" were a bit of Bowdlerizing?
