Michigan House Speaker to Female Members: You Can't Say Vagina!


I wish I were making this up. But I'm not.
Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown was banned from the floor after she ended a speech by saying, "I'm flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina, but no means no." The speaker responded by banning her from the floor for breaching decorum. Later on, Brown asked, "If I can't say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?"
This was the doing of Republican Speaker Bolger of the Michigan House. Well, I have one thing to say to him: Vagina!
