Quote for the Morning – Women’s issues in Michigan

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

Michigan House Representative Lisa Brown (D)

Brown’s comment got her banned from further recognition on the floor to voice her opinion on an unrelated school employee retirement bill by Republicans who said Brown was “offensive.”

As Brown responded:

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