I have never heard anything more mournful or beautiful in my life.
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. Dian Slavens (D- Canton Township)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D- Detroit)
Rep. Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield)
Rep. Vicki Barnett (D-Farmington Hills)
Rep. Joan Bauer (D-Lansing)
…with more to be announced soon!
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.
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?
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. [...]
War on Women? What War on Women? Don’t be ridiculous!
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.
Speaking of unconscionable indecency… Press corps calling u on this, Sarah?
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton will not be having a traditional Christian wedding but are planning a Jewish wedding since her future husband, Marc Mexvinsky is Jewish.
The bride and groom announced their wedding in November and are just now talking openly about the groom’s Jewish religion. Much of the talk that is circulating is coming from Jewish Community Centers who are looking eagerly to having a member of President Bill Clinton’s family join their Community.
Counting down to the anti-Semitic jokes and smears. And 5…4…3…2…
In the meantime, mazel tov!
