Florida GOP: Uterus Is a Bad Word, Should Be Seen (Before Abortions) and Not Heard
One time in first-grade art class, I said the word penis, or some approximation of it, to my classmate Will, who was a tattler. "I'm telling!" said Will, and suddenly I was at risk of having my blue ribbon taken away by my homeroom teacher. So, with some half-formed notion of self-respect, I trudged up to my teacher after class and said, "I said penis." Beat Will to the punch. Still got my blue ribbon taken away. Only years later did I stop to think, Wait, why is a body part a bad word?
I always say their philosophy is small government for the big guy and big government for the little guy. And so, if my wife's uterus was incorporated or my friend's bedroom was incorporated, maybe they [Republicans] would be talking about deregulating.
