File under: this would be funny if it weren’t so fucking sad.
Michigan House Republicans prohibited state Rep. Lisa Brown (D) from speaking on the floor after she ended a speech against a bill restricting abortions by referencing her female anatomy, the Detroit News reports.
Said Brown: “Finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’”
Republicans said Brown was “offensive” and wouldn’t allow her to voice her opinion on a school employee retirement bill.
Responded Brown: “If I can’t say the word vagina, why are we legislating vaginas? What language should I use?”
So…. This happened.
The internet is responding by tweeting “VAGINA” or “VAGINAS” or any variation thereof to the Michigan House Republicans twitter @MIHouseRepublicans
So. This happened.
I’m confused though. She used the term “vagina” while discussing a bill that, you know, talks about what should or should not happen with women and their vaginas and utero (is that the plural for uterus? or is it uteruses?) and what not, and so they decide she can’t say something about SCHOOL reformation in an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT debate?
"I think school employees should have a higher retirement fund because -vaginas- they work hard." Those words were probably not going to come from her mouth. So why on earth did they think her comment in one debate, which they found vulgar for the debate, would be relevant to her arguing for a different debate? I would understand them not wanting her to argue over the bill in which she made the comment about (though I think it’s quite ridiculous how prude they’re being), but over something else entirely that wouldn’t be relevant for her to really say many vulgar things? (Not that I think the word "vagina" is vulgar, but for the sake of their argument, I suppose…) The only vulgar thing she could say would be to tell them to go fuck themselves because she disagrees, which I don’t think she would do because she certainly wouldn’t ever be reelected for that.
This situation is ridiculous. Though, at the same time, it’s also quite hilarious. Does that make me a bad person?
He’s the only doctor I told I was moving to Seattle and this was my last appointment with him for quite a while. He said I could stop in when I come to visit. I love my dentist. He’s seriously the greatest ever.
If he were younger, he would be my best friend. I’m not even joking.
You think you’d be happy sitting naked on the floor of a beautiful boy’s kitchen on sunny mornings, but you wouldn’t like the feeling of dust under your bare ass. You say you want coffee dates with strangers, words as heated as the steam swirling from the black liquid, forgetting that you couldn’t take a single sip without cream and sugar. How could you swim across the ocean when you can’t hold your breath underwater?
What you want isn’t adventure, it isn’t cigarettes with girls who speak French, hair-dyeing in public bathrooms, a trip to a country whose name you can’t spell. You want a camera lens that won’t focus on you re-adjusting your bra strap, you want a view of life tinted blue so that your eyes won’t seem so red post-breakdown.
I won’t hold the camera on your desires, but I’d be happy to sweep the house or ask if you want more sweetener in your morning cup of conversation.
But I’m a fanfiction writer. There. I said it. In an attempt to avoid coming up with my own ideas, I’ve toyed around with characters and stories that already exist.
To the people I know in real life -stop judging me. I’m only doing it to help improve my writing. I swear!
To the people I don’t know in real life -ignore the above. Cherish me for me honesty and love of fanfiction. Or some crazy bullshit like that.
One day, I’ll be writing novels and publishing them and my interviews will always begin with “I got my start in fanfiction…” I think it would be quite entertaining to read. I might lose fans or I might gain more. Or both. Who knows?
Anyways, this is my fanfiction account with my recent stories being for the show “Once Upon a Time” and some OCs for it (along with a few silly and poorly-written one-shots of “South Park” from a long time ago along). Perhaps I will one day post something Harry Potter. Probably not. My ideas for that ship kind of suck. But, well, there it is if you’re interested.
Sometimes creepy bugs crawl into our house and end up in our kitchen sink. So I did the smart and logical and nice thing -I drowned it with the hose and then turned on the garbage disposal. Just saying.
McDonald’s-They’re full of unhealthy options. And, surprise! Their salads are worse for you than their burgers! If you have to stop at Mickey D’s go for a fruit and yogurt parfait, the fruit and walnut salad, or a grilled chicken sandwich with no mayo!
Wendy’s-Honestly, they really do seem to care about the healthy of the public. Get a grilled chicken sandwich and a side salad instead of fries (don’t use dressing!) or make a meal out of sides! A baked potato with no butter and a caesar salad would make for a healthy lunch!
Dunkin Donuts-They have a DD smart menu for a reason! Always look at those options and resist the temptation of their doughnuts!
Those are just suggestions for if you have no choice but to stop for fast food…it’s always best to have your own food! Stock up on grapes, raspberries, strawberries, apples, bananas, and other fruits that don’t have to be cut or prepared because they are great in a hurry! But don’t forget protein: Individual cottage cheese servings or yogurts are great! For whole grains, go for whole grain bread. You don’t even need a sandwich…just eat the bread and some yogurt if you’re short on time!
Harry Potter and the two faced guy who turns into stone and dies Harry Potter and the possessed ginger kid Harry Potter and the who-the-fuck-betrayed-my-parents dilemma Harry Potter and the doctor who guy who is also a death eater Harry Potter and the fuck I’m so fucking angry all the fucking time Harry Potter and the perfectly healthy malfoy-obsession/ malfoy-stalking Harry Potter and the why the fuck does no one ever tell me anything
