What she said was offensive,” said Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville. “It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.
Quoted by Hemant Mehta. Rep. Callton was referring to Rep. Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield), who used the word “vagina” on the floor of the Michigan House of Representatives.
He wouldn’t use an anatomically-correct term? That’s sad, really.
The word vagina is too offensive to say, but not too offensive to legislate. Ok. Wow. What are we supposed to call it then? Nether regions? Meat muffin? Hoo-ha? Vertical grimace? Flytrap? Catcher’s mitt? Beef curtains? Eel skinner? Dick sharpener? Dead end street? Crotch cobbler? Quivering quim? South pole? You-know-what? Please sir, let me know which term you prefer.

The Dude: Oh yeah?
Maude Lebowski: Yes, they don’t like hearing it and find it difficult to say whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson.
The Dude: Johnson?
