Check these out, too...
The press secretary for the house speaker blasted Brown’s
use of the anatomically correct word as “inappropriate and uncivilized.” A male
representative from another state declared that the word was “so offensive, I
don’t even want to say it in front of women.”
When did vagina become a 4-letter word? After all, about
half of the population has one. But even tampon commercials avoid the word,
replacing it with “down there” or cutesy names like “va-jay-jay.” Think about
it: when’s the last time a grown man referred to his “wee-wee”?
If we feel too uncomfortable to even say “vagina,” how can
we expect anyone to take women’s health issues seriously?
What do you think? Was Representative Brown’s use of the
word “vagina” inappropriate?

I believe that was very unprofessional of the Michagan House of Reps. for banning her. Lisa was being very mature and using the proper word. That word is just part of life, and she was probably dealing with a serious issue when she said the word. We hear words having to do with private parts (and even sex) all the time on the news. People on the news use the words when talking about serious issues or crimes. They do it in a professional manner, as I'm sure Lisa did, and they do not get banned or fired. The same should go for Lisa Brown!

That's silly. If she used it in a mature way, why shouldn't she be able to say it? It's a basic part of human (mostly woman) anatomy, and if they're allowed to say boy parts, why not vagina. I feel like they need to grow up. It's not inappropriate, or 'uncivilized'. If they can't even mention what they're debating about, how are they supposed to reach a decision?

I think it depend on how she used the word. If she clearly was joking around about it, than that would be un-called for, but if she said it in a mature way...? Who cares?? You would think that being 'politicians' would eventually bring out the fact that people have FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Even if it had made people dislike the Michigan rep, it was her RIGHT to say it and she will get the consequenses.

The title made my laugh, is this a JOKE?!?! What, did she burst into a rap and rip off her clothes or something? No, she most likely just said it in her sentence. She was the mature one, if these other people can't handle one word than why are they in politics. I would never vote for someone so immature.

Girls should be checked for breast cancer routinely because they can get it just like older women.
