Michigan pro-abort reps. can't understand why their tantrums and lack of professionalism led to them being silenced for a day

Michigan pro-abort Representative Lisa Brown is making the news again after her speech against prolife legislation lost her House floor speaking privileges for a day (Rep. Barb Byrum also lost her privileges for throwing a mini-tantrum on the House floor). Another recent time Brown made the news was when a former staffer accused Brown of firing her because she was pregnant. The staffer also accused Brown of making a crude abortion comments during a prolife rally (another staffer claimed Brown would never say something that crude).

Some people who don't understand the state House rules on protocol and decorum seem to think that saying the word vagina is what got Brown in trouble and can't seem to fathom the context in which she said it might be at issue.

Let's examine the quote:

"I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no,' "

If I was a Michigan House member who favored the prolife legislation being voted on, I would consider this a personal attack. She claims they are interested in her vagina and uses the "no means no" phrase which is often used to discuss sexual assaults.

Besides Brown's accusatory comments and Byrum's mini-tantrum, Rep. Rashida Tlaib couldn't come up with argument so she called for a sex boycott.
State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, called for women statewide to boycott having sex until Republican lawmakers reconsider the bills.

"Stop having sex with us, gentlemen," Tlaib said. "Find somebody else to do it with."
