Michigan Democrat representative Lisa Brown was silenced by House Speaker James Bolger for using the word “vagina” in a debate about an anti-abortion bill. Can we get any more stupid? In a debate about what women are allowed to do with their own bodies, a woman uses the correct medical terminology and gets silenced by a man for being “too vulgar.” Ugh...
Lisa Brown later got even by reciting parts of “The Vagina Monologue” on the steps of the Michigan statehouse with other women silenced during the debate to a crowd of several thousands.
