I love this, I love this, I love this, I soooooo love this.......I love this.





LANSING, Mich. (AP) A state lawmaker who says she was barred from speaking in the Michigan House because Republicans objected to her saying "vagina" during debate over anti-abortion legislation performed "The Vagina Monologues" on the Statehouse steps with a hand from the author.


Eve Ensler, whose groundbreaking play about women's sexuality still packs theaters 16 years after it debuted, oversaw Monday night's performance by Democratic state Rep. Lisa Brown, 10 other lawmakers and several actresses.

i agree, complaining about using the word 'vagina' in a debate is very childish. says a lot about the conservative mind set.

No wonder there's a huge gender gap - I'm just surprised any woman would ever vote Republican.



Here's some more coverage:

That "huge gender gap" doesn't really exist.

You think it's copacetic to claim that people are crybabies when they are being discriminated against, but when even a hint of your white privilege is threatened, you are ready to start a revolution. Talk about crybabies! Old white men in the House think vasectomy is a bad word and vagina is pornographic. That's what's truly funny about this! They want to keep women from using the actual medical words for things in a debate about medical things! Talk about idiots! Maybe she should have said sugar bowl or something like that, lol....

A woman said vagina to a bunch of men, and they had a meltdown......and conservatives now have the temerity to say she is the crybaby and is acting childish.



Typical right wing spin.

Because they have been silenced and not allow to speak anymore. On issues directly effecting women and our vaginas.

That just shows how bad your judgement is. But that was apparent a long time ago. Why would that even be funny to a ten year old?

Tell it to a ten year old and you'll find out.



This whole thread is about adults behaving like 10-year olds.

No it isn't. Unless of course you are referring to the men preventing the Michigan representatives from speaking about this. Then yes, they are in fact behaving like ten year olds. More like 5 year olds, come to think of it.

I agree.



And the same can be said for the silly cows reciting the vagina monologues as though they were auditioning for the next season of "Desperate Housewives".



Hopefully their husbands (if any of them have husbands) were down the pub sinking a few beers and watching the game.



Lord help their children

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I guess. Even if it's a stupid one.
