Dear Michigan House of Representatives,
If you don’t want it spoken about in your proceedings, don’t try to regulate it.

For those who don’t know the story:
Michigan Rep. Lisa Brown was silenced by House Republicans on Thursday afternoon when she used the world “vagina” while addressing the Republican led Michigan House of Representatives.
The mother of three was attacking a package of abortion regulation bills that would violate her Jewish religious beliefs. Brown clearly stated that under Jewish rules abortions are allowed if they are required to save the life of a mother.
In concluding her speech Lisa Brown noted:

“Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.””

Following her statement House Republicans refused to let her voice her opinion about a school employee retirement bill, a measure I am almost positive would not have included the word “vagina.”
Playing the role of moral moderator Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville said of her statement:

“What she said was offensive. It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.”

Also going on the defensive was Majority Floor Leader Jim Stams, R-Midland who said her use of the word vagina violated House decorum.
Attacking the GOP Lisa Brown shot back:

“If I can’t say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?”
