Vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina! Saying it 5x won’t summon the Vadge Monster nor should saying it once get you banned. I mean, it’s 2012, right? Because I don’t understand how two female State Representatives (Lisa Brown, D-West Bloomfield, and Barb Byrum, D-Onondaga) in Michigan were banned from speaking before the House simply for having the temerity to utter the word “vagina” and talk about women’s rights in public. What’s with banning stuff? Are the members of the House of Representatives solely made up of John Lithgow’s reverend character in Footloose? Should we expect that Brown and Byrum are at a warehouse somewhere in Michigan, rage dancing in Jordache jeans? Except the movie version of this political situation would be called Loose Lips. #DoubleEntendre #YoureWelcome. Of the two State Reps., Lisa Brown has gotten more attention because of the following clip:
“I’m flattered you’re all so interested in my vagina. But no means no.” Oh. Damn. That quote is the equivalent of when some White basketball player gets dunked on by Lebron James and that clip makes the Sportscenter highlight reel. Nuts (or in this case, ovaries) in yo face, House Republicans!
