Yes, I’m totally recycling this brilliant GIF Maya posted yesterday; it’s just too fitting.
Apparently The Daily Caller needs some ear muffs for their delicate sensibilities around the word “vagina.”
I’m not giving any linkage to this ridiculousness, but had to share the deets: there’s a piece featured on their front page today titled, “MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow’s new favorite word: ‘Vaginal’.” Over the course of 10 days while the recent Virginia transvaginal ultrasound legislation controversy was happening, not only did the author take time in his busy job delivering the news to track the number of times Maddow mentioned, “vagina” or “vaginal” during her show, but also ended up incorporating it into a fucking video montage. Wait, who’s obsessed with the word?
The one thing the piece manages to get right is that Maddow was one of the key influencers whose coverage resulted in the bill being amended (yet sadly passed anyway, just less extreme) — but let’s focus on the real issue at hand here: Rachel Maddow likes to say the word “vagina” everyone! (Not to mention I’m sure they didn’t anticipate the extent of homophobic vitriol to come out of their reader community. Not a bit.)
So what would have been better, guys? The Virginia transvajajay ultrasound bill?
