Translating "箕門", acupuncture point SP-11

The reasoning for translating "箕門" as "Winnowing Gate" from Chinese into English. This is the original name of acupuncture point SP-11 (Spleen 11).

Winnowing Gate  (SP-11)
箕: Winnow / sieve / sit down with both legs fully extended
門: Gate / entrance

Explanation of the point name

箕 means both 'to winnow' and 'to sit down with both legs fully extended.' Winnowing is the process of using the wind to separate straw from grain, which is often done by sitting down like that. This point is located at the upper part of the inside of the upper leg, where one reaches easily with the hands, then. When the legs are somewhat apart, the shape of a gate is formed by them.
