There seems to be some confusion on the left. Okay, now donâ€™t stop reading just because youâ€™re thinking, â€œAnd so whatâ€™s new?â€Â No, this is very basic; weâ€™re not talking about anything the least bit deep here so itâ€™s really rather quite amazing how confused they are over this simple matter, even for the left, I promise you. From the title, you probably have an inkling of what I am speaking of here.
You know they had a debate in the MichiganÂ House of RepresentativesÂ about the abortion issue. Well, this was one of those abortion debates about womenâ€™s rights. You know how theyâ€™re big on womenâ€™s rights and all kinds of peopleâ€™s rights that have much less to do with rights than they have to do with desire, but since we donâ€™t legislate on desire in this country, they call them rights so they can argue from a point of reference that seems legitimate. This was no different from one of their usual causes, but what made it such an issue is that Lisa Brown, a Democrat representative, said, "And finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no.'"
Certainly, those of us not on the left can see what is offensive about this statement, but the media took off on this sentence with the idea that the only reason Lisa Brown was kicked out of the meeting is because she used the word, vagina. And you know how they are. Once the media gets their point across to them, this is how they go and thereâ€™s no way theyâ€™re going to use their heads to see that is not the case since theyâ€™re too busy trying to prove sunscreen useless by keeping their heads in that place where it would never be needed.
So what I thought I would do here for them is give them a little tutorial so they might be able to understand that the reason she was asked to leave is not because she used the word, vagina, but because of how she used it. This is going to be such an easy lesson they donâ€™t even have to move their heads out of where theyâ€™re stuck to understand it, but donâ€™t get too excited. Iâ€™m sure the commentary that will follow will reveal that some of them still do not understand, and thatâ€™s just a fact of life that those of us not on the left must stoically endure.
You see, the word, vagina, is a body part. Yes, itâ€™s a womanâ€™s private body part, but nonetheless a part of a womanâ€™s human anatomy, no different from an arm, a leg, a breast, an anus or a pelvis. There are several other body parts as well, and they are too numerous to name them all here, but if you would like to see the human anatomy of a woman we can direct you so you can have an idea of what all those body parts are. There are ovaries, fallopian tubes and all kinds of parts to examine if you so choose. Youâ€™ll also see the anus, but thatâ€™s not where everyoneâ€™s head is so donâ€™t let it confuse you that the head is not depicted in that area; it wasnâ€™t an oversight.
So now that you can see all the different parts of a womanâ€™s anatomy, you might be able to understand that they need to be named. So they are given those names, some of which we have mentioned here. There is nothing offensive about those names because they are just names for the body parts. This means that no one would take offense at anyone using any of these names. Well, sure, there are people who are crazed and they might take offense at even your own personal name, but weâ€™re talking about your mentally balanced individual here. I didnâ€™t see any allusion to the Speaker being touched so I have to imagine that heâ€™s not. Therefore, the word, vagina, would be no more offensive to him than any other name for any other body part.
However, we can use body part names in ways that are offensive. Letâ€™s for a second go back to the idea of where you have your head. Now, youâ€™ve probably already taken offense that I have as much as told you that if you think she was kicked out of this meeting because she used the word, vagina, you have your head up your anus. And you would probably be right to be offended, but was it the word, anus, that offended you, or how I used it? Be honest, now.
So, you see, if Lisa Brown had merely said, â€œwhat a woman chooses to do with her own vagina is her own business,â€ she wouldnâ€™t have gotten kicked out of the meeting even though you can see that the word, vagina, was used in that sentence. That isnâ€™t how she used the word, though. Once again, she said, "And finally, Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no.'"
This clearly said (whether with sarcasm or not, and that is left only to interpretation)Â that the speaker had expressed an interest in her vagina and she was flattered by his interest, but she also told him that his interest was in vain because she was saying no to his interest. That isÂ neither a professional nor polite way to say that a womanâ€™s vagina is her own business. This is not a woman I would want representing me for my rights and if you want to talk about rights, the Speaker had every right to dismiss her for the way she expressed herself to him with such lascivious implications.
