Quote of the Day: State lawmaker calls women “vaginas”

Here’s what New Hampshire State Rep. Peter Hansen wrote in an email to the official legislative listserv in response to a debate on a gun bill earlier this month.

What could possibly be missing from those factual tales of successful retreat in VT, Germany, and the bowels of Amsterdam? Why children and vagina’s of course. While the tales relate the actions of a solitary male the outcome cannot relate to similar situations where children and women and mothers are the potential victims.

I’ll just echo Hansen’s colleague State Rep. Rick Watrous: “Are you really using ‘vaginas’ as a crude catch-all for women? Really?”

But seriously…
