Vagina Vagina Vagina. Vagina. VAGINA-vagina-Vagina!

I know I’m a bit late to the Vagina party, but, as Jamie Peck wrote, a few days ago two Michigan state representatives (Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown) were barred from speaking on the floor of the senate house after using the word “vagina”.

Specifically, while addressing her opposition to an extreme abortion Lisa Brown said “Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’”

And…barred.

One state representitve remarked “[her comment] was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.”

I have a terrible spoiler for you state-representitive-who-I’m-almost-certain-has-named-his-penis-something-like-”Thor” – women all have vaginas. Right there, under their clothes. We generally call them vaginas. Well, not me, I call mine “Mildred the Venus Fly Trap,” but I roll hard like that.

Anyhow! Are you wondering what you’d need to discuss your reproductive rights on the floor of the senate house? Too bad we can’t say the word. Fortunately, Coloring for Grown-Ups provided us with a terrific connect-the-dots picture. Help Linda connect the dots, you guys!
