Well, the Republican guys in Lansing who gratuitously silenced their fellow Congresswomen saw that backfire in a big way. Their weak excuse of being offended by the “v” words to justify their heavy handed, undemocratic suppression of equal speech caught international attention. Now the whole world is talking about vaginas. Some five thousand showed up for a reading of the Vagina Monologues staged on the Statehouse steps last night.
Guess the old saying is still true. There is no fury like women scorned. And they vote. [photo credit - Chris Savage. More photos at the link.]
On a related note, interesting that Representative Frank Foster (R-Petoskey) isn’t at all offended by use of the “c” slur against women. No cameras rolling so he felt free to call a woman that word because she wouldn’t stop mowing her lawn.
Foster said she was disturbing his austistic son. Except his bio says he has no children. Which raises the question, who was that woman and young boy he introduced as his son Chase, that he drove away with in his car?
