Last Wednesday Michigan lawmakers were scandalized, scandalized I tell you. When Michigan Democratic Rep. Lisa Brown assumed the podium to protest Michigan’s new anti-abortion law. She said her piece, and concluded her address with:
“I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours? And finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but no means no.”
Well the sexually repressed GOP had a coronary and promptly and indefinitely banned Rep. Brown from speaking in the Capitol, along with Democratic Rep. Barb Byrum, who also possess a vagina for good measure.
Now, in protest Brown, Byrum, and seven other Michigan State legislators, assorted Michiganer actresses, and the author of the “Vagina Monlouges” author Eve Ensler herself will put on a performance of Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues on the Michigan Capitol steps dubbing it “Vaginas Take Back The Capitol!”
The performamce will take place Monday, from 6 – 8 p.m.
