Republicans To Women: No Vagina Dialogues! (Limerick)

Michigan Republican pols apparently have very delicate ears:

Two state representatives in Michigan were barred from speaking on the floor of the legislature in Lansing Thursday after colleagues deemed their language “failed to maintain the decorum” of the legislative body.

State Reps. State Reps. Lisa Brown and Barb Byrum, both Democrats, were arguing against proposed legislation that would enact new restrictions on abortions in Michigan, including provisions for new insurance requirements for abortion providers.

Brown ended her floor speech by declaring: “”I’m flattered that you are all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.”

Republicans To Women: No Vagina Dialogues!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Republicans love to pass laws
That restrict female parts, without pause.
But just utter “vagina”—
They’ll ship you to China.
Censor gals in all ways — that’s their cause.

    Right On! Loved Brown’s retort, but to them bastards, No usually means maybe.

    Yup. If I said more, this comment could turn into a length rant since I can’t write such clever lims as you!

    Thanks Hansi and Tumblewords!

  4. Republicans love to pass laws,
    defining body parts because
    vagina sounds awful,
    lets make it unlawful
    our women must be without flaws.

    When women are faced with such dreck,
    Their response should be more than “Oh, heck!”
    Their comeback? It oughta
    Be more “Lysistrata!”
    Let men be content to just neck!
