File under: this would be funny if it weren’t so fucking sad.
Michigan House Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown (D) from speaking on the floor after she ended a speech against a bill restricting abortions by referencing her female anatomy, the Detroit News reports.
Said Brown: “Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’”
Republicans said Brown was “offensive” and wouldn’t allow her to voice her opinion on a school employee retirement bill.
Responded Brown: “If I can’t say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?”
Oh, dear god, Michigan. Get it together.
I guess she should have called it her “special lady flower” like a proper adult.
The StepBluers’ mom has taught them to call it their “hoo-ha.” Which I personally think is the most ridiculous thing ever.
Ugh. Kids should be taught the scientific words for their body parts before they are taught slang. I’ve heard several parents say that they teach their kids slang because the grandparents are uncomfortable with using the scientific words! Argh! :/
