Overreacting to The V Word

I'm not saying it, because I'll tell you right now those things give me the heebie jeebies, but the whole damned world is off it's nut right now because some Dem representativelady said it in the Michigan State Congress yesterday.

What the hell. What, the hell.

The Democratic state representative has defended her use of the anatomical term, saying her remarks were 'clearly appropriate' and did not justify her being banned by the Republican House leadership.

Maybe not the whole damned world. Perhaps that's a bit much. It might be something less than the whole damned world.

Despite my discomfort in general with this girl part thing (they are confusing like calculus except calculus has rules and shit) her specific statement, "'And finally, Mr. Speaker,’ she said. ‘I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.’" is just silly. A cutesy little shocka line. The controversial part of the bill that was passed was a halfway mark "no abortions after 20 weeks" thing.

It seems silly to me for Republicans to muzzle her in response to her use of the word "vagina" however cutesy stupid her motivation.

Oh shit. I said it.

Me, personally? I'd have put a bucket on my head and run around in circles until I hit a wall. I do not want to hear about vag. I'd rather play a round of golf than listen to lawmakers talk about vaginas, and you know how I feel about golf.

But I don't like shutting down speech. And seeing lawmakers get the vapors over a word.

I would have preferred "punani" but that's just a personal thing with me.
