Uterus Is A Dirty Word!

We must protect the children from it-and of course we talk about and act upon many matters related to the uterus..but let's not go there I guess.

Democrat chastised for saying 'uterus' on House floor

During last week's discussion about a bill that would prohibit governments from deducting union dues from a worker's paycheck, state Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, used his time during floor debate to argue that Republicans are against regulations -- except when it comes to the little guys, or serves their specific interests.

At one point Randolph suggested that his wife "incorporate her uterus" to stop Republicans from pushing measures that would restrict abortions. Republicans, after all, wouldn't want to further regulate a Florida business.

Apparently the GOP leadership of the House didn't like the one-liner.

They told Democrats that Randolph is not to discuss body parts on the House floor.

"The point was that Republicans are always talking about deregulation and big government," Randolph said Thursday. "And 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.

"It's not like I used slang," said Randolph, who actually got the line from his wife. He said Republicans voiced concern about young pages hearing the word uterus.

"I think it's a sad commentary about what we think about sex education in the state," he said.

House GOP spokeswoman Katie Betta: "The Speaker has been clear about his expectations for conduct on the House for during debate. At one point during the debate, he mentioned to the entire House that members of both parties needed to be mindful of decorum during debate.

"Additionally, the Speaker believes it is important for all Members to be mindful of and respectful to visitors and guests, particularly the young pages and messengers who are seated in the chamber during debates. In the past, if the debate is going to contain language that would be considered inappropriate for children and other guests, the Speaker will make an announcement in advance, asking children and others who may be uncomfortable with the subject matter to leave the floor and gallery."

I'm hoping this is a late April Fool's Joke, otherwise the party has lost all intelligence...

Huh, that's a strange one. Is this just feigned outrage because it was brought up with reference to abortion, or do they actually think it's an 'obscene' word? I always had the impression there was a kind of unspoken rule that internal reproductive organs are 'safe' to refer to even in 'polite company' (assuming that's what the House floor is supposed to be...).

Talking about sex when young people are present, is just plain wrong!!

Using a fancy word does not make it ok.

Everybody knows the man's "jimmy' goes into the woman's "uterus" to make a baby.

When I read this headline, I assumed the objection was that they didn't say "womb."

But yeah, this is far more ridiculous.

I'm assuming he'd have preferred "Baby Oven"?
