Michigan Republicans Want to Control Women’s Vaginas and Voices

I don’t know if anyone else saw the story this week.  In discussing an anti-abortion bill, a legislator in Michigan said

“I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no,’ ” said Brown, D-West Bloomfield

In response, Republicans banned Rep Brown from speaking on the bill.  Such delicate flowers these Republican legislators:

Some male Republican representatives, however, said Brown’s comments were vulgar, “inappropriate” and “offensive.”

“What she said was offensive,” said state Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville.

“It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company,” he said.

From The Detroit News:

Republicans also banned another Democratic woman from speaking on the issue when she tried to introduce legislation regulating vasectomies.

Well, okay then, said the Democratic women.  And planned a performance of The Vagina Monologues for the steps of the state capitol.
