Remember this, from yesterday?
State Reps. Lisa Brown, D-West Bloomfield, and Barb Byrum, D-Onondaga, were told today that they wouldn’t be recognized to publicly speak on any matters before the House because of comments they made Wednesday during an emotional debate on a bill that puts new restrictions on abortion providers.
Brown, who voted against the legislation, told supporters of the bill, “I’m flattered you’re all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no.”
If all this wasn't on a very serious attempt to control who controls reproduction it would be necessary to point out that the Michigan Republicans are giving us vagina-control monologues but the term itself cannot be mentioned. It's not decorous or mature to mention that what these forced birthers wish to control is intimately tied to the control of vaginas and the control of women.
My Twitter machine has gone crazy on the theme of vaginas. It may well be that ridicule is the best weapon in this particular case. At the same time, the people who don't want vaginas mentioned but do want to control them are deadly serious about their business.
