Never underestimate the power of the vagina. As I prepare a new BLUNT song parody video about this very topic, I am heartened by the women legislators in Michigan retaliating against the males who banned them from the House floor for daring to utter the anatomically correct term, "vagina" while defending women's constitutional reproductive rights.
As you may recall, 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) didn't like that they used the word "vasectomy" and Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville, was offended by the word “vagina”.
As I said in a previous post, it's okay with men like those two to penetrate a vagina with an ultrasound probe or even their own anatomy, but saying it out loud is something “you can’t say in mixed company.” So boinking in mixed company is fine, but a woman must not mention the very thing he boinks.

Michigan Capitol Building - 100 North Capitol Ave (btw.West Allegean & West Ottawa)
EVE ENSLER is flying to Michigan to take back the capitol with a special performance of The Vagina Monologues, starring Eve herself, along with your favorite legislators!
So far, the cast includes Eve Ensler, along with:
Sen. Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor)
Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing)
Rep. Barb Byrum (D- Onondaga)
Rep. Stacy Erwin Oakes (D-Saginaw)

Rep. Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield)

The play in considered a feminist manifesto and supporters hope that it will help to raise awareness of conservative encroachments on the rights of women.
The provincial team of Stamas and Callton are about to feel the wrath of women scorned. By the way, do these two ever say the word "penis" out loud? Just asking.
