VIDEO: Female MI Rep. to male GOP House leader: “I’m flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no."

Two Michigan (home of Gov. Ricky Snyder of Financial Martial Law infamy) Democratic state legislators, both female, were silenced by their House leader (male) for trying to reduce access to vasectomies... and for uttering the "medically correct terms" vagina and vasectomy.

That's what they got for trying to stand up for women's rights, those silly, foul-mouthed girls! Don't they know their place by now?

Think Progress:

Reps. Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown introduced an amendment to apply the same regulations to vasectomies that GOP lawmakers wanted to add to abortion services. [...]

Majority Floor Leader Jim Stamas (R) was “uncomfortable with me saying vasectomy,” Byrum explained, noting that no one told her why she had been banned or how long it would last.

War on Women? What War on Women? Don't be ridiculous!

And from The Detroit News:

House Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown from speaking on the floor Thursday after she ended a speech Wednesday against a bill restricting abortions by referencing her female anatomy.

Brown, a West Bloomfield Democrat and mother of three, said a package of abortion regulation bills would violate her Jewish religious beliefs that pregnancy be aborted to save the life of the mother.

So if a Jew presents religion as an argument, it's not valid. Got it. Only Catholics can do that.

To make matters worse, Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville, was offended by the word "vagina". Apparently he can penetrate one with an ultrasound probe or even his own anatomy, but saying it out loud is something "you can't say in mixed company." He boinks in mixed company, so why can't a woman mention the very thing he, erm, mixes company with?

Lisa Brown: "We're all adults here."

No, Lisa, apparently that's where you're wrong.
