This is a major Jackass Alert!

Apparently, in Michigan, its ok to legislate a woman’s vagina, especially when you don’t have one and are most likely never going to have one, but not alright to say the word “vagina”.  I can only assume in Michigan that [vagina] is a dirty word if you are Republican.  Not only do I find this incredibly juvenile thinking, but I also find it more than offensive that no such prohibition was placed on the word “penis”.  There is reason for that!

Never at any time has there been any legislation regulating the male penis and what males may or may not do with them regarding reproductive rights. Never!  I suppose that should make me feel somewhat safe, but somehow it just gives me the creeps.

I’m just curious here……but how in the world did they discuss this attack on a woman’s right to choose, without mentioning, discussing or referring to the female body and its genitalia?

I can only conclude, after having been driven insane by religious nuttery and mysticism and GOP emotional lunacy…….Republicans are no longer sure what a vagina actually is and what it actually does.  Maybe those Republicans should check with their mistresses……that might help shed some light on what they are talking about.  Or having failed to secure “another woman”, they could ask Rush Limpbaugh.

As for me, I will be waiting for that equally offensive legislation that will make it a felony for a man to contribute to an unwanted pregnancy.  Of course legislation like that might put a damper on keeping a woman on the side…….I mean, if you actually knew you would get in trouble for passing yourself around like  hors d’oeuvres on a tray, you might check yourself before you wreck yourself.

But here it is from Daily KOZ

Tell Michigan Republicans that if they don’t like it when female lawmakers say “vagina,” then they should stop legislating vaginas. Click here to send Michigan Republicans an email.

Earlier this week, during a debate over one of the most restrictive anti-choice bills yet, Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown read a letter from a voter that concluded with a message for Republican Speaker of the House Jase Bolger:

“Finally Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.”

Bolger promptly barred Rep. Brown from speaking on the House floor the next day. Apparently Michigan Republicans think it’s okay to legislate vaginas, but not okay to talk about them.

Click here to tell Jase Bolger that if he doesn’t like it when lawmakers say the word “vagina,” then he should stop legislating vaginas.
