State Rep. Lisa Brown: Silenced for Saying (shock!) 'vagina'

From the site: (CNN) -- One week ago, the Michigan House of Representatives was taking up some of the most restrictive anti-choice legislation in the country. It was in the context of this bill that I said, "Finally Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no.'"

You can watch me say that here. My comment is made around the 1:50 mark, and you can see exactly how the legislators seated behind me reacted. While there was a scatter of applause from my colleagues, there were no dropped jaws, bulging eyes or fainting. In fact, the only remarkable thing about their response is that there was virtually no response at all.

Not until the next day. That's when I got word that Republican House leaders had banned me and my colleague Rep. Barb Byrum from speaking on the House floor. I was shocked.

Given my speech, I could only assume it was because I spoke to my Jewish values or because I had said vagina. But later that day, Rep. Mike Callton told the press that what I had said was so vile, so disgusting, that he could never bear to mention it in front of women or "mixed company."

It's not like she said, cunt, pussy, twat, or anything else I forgot ;)

With all of the crime and shit going on in the world, seems like nothing to make such a big deal over.

What gets me is Mike Callton’s “shock” over the use of the word, when I would bet dollars to donuts he has shared in a chuckle over a few pussy/cunt jokes with “the boys”. Derp..

Rep. Mike Callton must live in fear of women. Vagina vagina vagina vagina. It's the correct term for it. What's the big deal?

Re: State Rep. Lisa Brown: Silenced for Saying (shock!) 'vagina'

i dont think its the word that so bad but the context in which she used it.. i mean come on.. its inappropiate. i'm not fond of censorship but she could have been more professional. if a guy said it, it would have been censored the same way. "i think you're interested in my penis".. especially if he's talking to a room full of gay politicians fighting for gay rights or whatever.. but that's just how i feel about it.
