Heavy Flow Of Protestors Attack MI Capital’s “Don’t Say Va-Jay-Jay” Policy

Armed with clever signs like “twat was she thinking?” and “my vagina is angry,” more than 4,000 demonstrators took to the lawn of the Michigan Capitol building Monday evening in support of Democratic Representative Lisa Brown, who was censored on\ the house floor when she dared to use the “vagina” during a debate about women’s reproductive rights.

Brown was speaking against a proposed omnibus bill that is considered to be country’s most aggressive anti-abortion legislation when she said: “I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’”

“The leaders of the House have shown they will go to great lengths to not hear our voices.” says Brown, in an op-ed, “I am going to speak out anyway. I urge everyone else who feels the Legislature doesn’t hear them to speak up with me.”

And speak up she did. With the help of some local actresses, legislators and Tony Award-winning author Eve Ensler, Brown took to the steps of the statehouse and treated the crowd to a very special performance of The Vagina Monologues.

    Love it. The misogyny in this country (especially in some very invasive legislation) needs to be battled.

    Va-jay-jays are icky and gross and should never be mentioned. =)

    JayKay, How do you keep an ass-hole in suspense? I’ll tell you tomorrow.

    “Vagina” is really a euphonious, melodious word. Kind of rolls around on the lips and tongue (more so than “penis”). But don’t get me wrong. For me, the word is fun, not the thing. One
    On the opposite end of the spectrum (can I say “spectrum”?), the offended male lawmakers unquestionably prefer the thing to the word as an object of oral activity.
    Joycelyn Elders got dumped as surgeon general partly because she dared to speak openly about “masturbation.”
    Clearly, then, when it comes right “down” to it, performing cunnilingus or fellatio or masturbation is OK; it’s only talking about those acts that’s immoral.
    What a wonderfully enlightened society we live in, epitomized and presided over by the most enlightened among us, our legislators.

    The politically correct pronunciation of angina seems to be “ANN-ji-na” (although “ann-JY-na” is listed as first choice by some dictionaries).
    The politically correct pronunciation of Uranus seems to be “YOUR-a-nus” (although “your-AY-nus” is also given as an alternative).
    Since there are evidently so many virgin ears out there, particularly in legislative assemblies, I propose changing the pronunciation of “va-JY-na” to “VAJ-a-na.”
    Would that satisfy these pussies?

    @jason: Why are some men so afraid of them that they won’t let women say the word vagina in the legislature while they pass laws limiting the righst of said vaginas. It’s just a word, don’t trip.
