"Both Representative Byrum and I were gaveled down without cause yesterday while voicing our opposition to the Republican's war on women here in Michigan, "said Rep. Brown. "Regardless of their reasoning, this is a violation of my First Amendment rights and directly impedes my ability to serve the people who elected me into office. I was either banned for being Jewish and rightfully pointing out that House Bill 5711 was forcing contradictory religious beliefs upon me and any other religion. Or it is because I said the word 'vagina' which is an anatomically, medically correct term. If they are going to legislate my anatomy, I see no reason why I cannot mention it."

Not that the Liberal MSM Media will carry the story. This one got buried in the worst way.

This was one of the coolest stories I read yesterday.

That's exactly what an ableist opressor-colonialist of the hegemonic kyriarchy would say.

A ton of my friends participated in this rally, and I would have, too, if I weren't in TX now.
The rally was much bigger than implied by the amount of press it's *not* getting. This is a huge issue that is setting a terrifying precedent, yet it's getting almost no media coverage.

Tw*t was she thinking?
 
2012-06-19 12:18:26 PM  
Guys have always been the ones accused of "thinking with the small head", yet every five seconds I see some dumb quiff proud of how she's a slut or talking about her vagina or whipping her vagina out in public or inserting a baseball bat in front of a kindergarten class or some other such silly nonsense. You ladies need some more hobbies I think.
 
2012-06-19 12:18:35 PM  
Nobody would bat an eye if they were Dicks or Rods or Johnsons.

Protesting the word "vagina" is like protesting the word "cranium" or "femur."

It's getting a lot of press in Michigan. I've heard the word vagina more times in the past couple of days from the news anchors than prior decades worth of newscast combined.

You know, I like most vaginas. However, I do not want to be anywhere near the one owned by the woman in the picture.

Also, FTA: "We're talking about the silencing of women, we're talking about censoring people for saying a body part," she said. "Half of these people who are trying to regulate vaginas, they can't even say the word."

Speaking last week against a bill that would require doctors to ensure abortion-seekers haven't been coerced into ending their pregnancies, Brown told Republicans, "I'm flattered you're all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no."


Regulating vaginas? Someone needs a lesson in reproduction. Unless I'm totally confused about which is the uterus and which is the vagina.
 
2012-06-19 12:20:18 PM  
I just want to go on record as being pro-vag.

/Just saying.
 
2012-06-19 12:20:31 PM  
There's something good about this story, but I can't put my finger on it.
 
2012-06-19 12:20:35 PM  
I love that they were chanting VAGINA over and over. Let's play the 'vagina game!'
 
2012-06-19 12:20:48 PM  
Great. Rampaging vaginas in Lansing.

What's next?
 
2012-06-19 12:21:39 PM  
Still don't quite get how any self respecting woman could ever think about supporting the GOP nowadays unless they are a total dyed-in-the-wool, self-hating, fundie halfwit.

The party is essentially unsupportable these days on many levels but that one is the most obvious.

That noted, good on EE and Co for fighting back against the madness.

he should just take it back by saying anigav.

Born and raised in Michigan, went to school in East Lansing and I know a lot of the people who went to the rally. Michigan's legislature has been dominated by Republicans for a long time, but I think this moral campaign by the party will really sour the support many, many people gave Rick Perry and his economic platform.

Honestly I never thought my state would sink this low. Detroit is already the punching bag of the rest of the country and now these assholes in Lansing are making us look like bigots too.

Stuff like this only reenforces two views about republicans. They believe in constitutional original intent. Assuming that means male white christian landowners only or that they are in the closet and afraid of female anatomy.

But I guess a great way to shut down any conversation is ban the words needed to have a conversation.

FTA- "A Michigan state lawmaker who was barred from speaking in the state's House because Republicans objected to her saying "vagina" during a debate over anti-abortion legislation performed "The Vagina Monologues" on the Statehouse steps last night for an audience of about 2,5000."

Did they neglect to pit "lbs" at the end? Or did they divide by zero?

/Vagina, FTW

I hope women turn out in huge numbers. It'll stop Romney from going to war in Iran and from going to war in women's vaginas.

In 2010 voter turnout in Michigan was 43%. If more vaginas had turned off the jersey shore marathon and voted, maybe this wouldn't be an issue.

Yeah, because conservative women don't need to know about legislation concerning their bodies. Hell, they don't even need to know they have a vagina.
