Lots of people spoke at the DNC. Men, women, people of all different races, ethnicities, and cultures discussed a range of issues important to them and this country. Not just women. Not even close to just women. And even if it were ALL women, so what? I DARE you to watch Michelle Obama’s speech and NOT cry. I DARE YOU!
CNN anchor, Erick Erickson Tweeted this while watching the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte:
First night of the Vagina Monologues in Charlotte going as expected.

This guy is basically pissed that women were allowed to speak and given the same credibility and respect as men. I could go off on this guy, but I’d rather just make fun of his stupid remarks. That’s what they are–stupid, thoughtless, and not even worthy of a real discussion, only unadultered ridicule. We all know, every time a woman speaks, it’s just the Vagina Monologues, am I right, ladies?
Mom: “I have something really important to tell you–”
Me: “Stop Vagina Monologuing at me, God!” *eyeroll*
Math Teacher: “The quadratic formula is simple . . .”
Me: “OMG! How am I supposed to learn math when this woman is Vagina Monologuing numbers at me!”
Gynecologist: “There’s a possibility this lump could be ovarian cancer.”
Me: “Another Vagina Monologuer McGee. It’s always ‘VAGINAS! VAGINAS!’ with you!”
Gynecologist: “I’m a vagina . . . doctor . . .”
Me: “VAGINAS! VAGINAS! LALALALALA.”
Michelle Obama: “They simply believed in that fundamental American promise that, even if you don’t start out with much, if you work hard and do what you’re supposed to do, then you should be able to build a decent life for yourself and an even better life for your kids and grandkids.”
Me: “Why is this woman discussing her vulva on national television?!”
In his defense, maybe Erick Erickson has a disease where every word he hears sounds like “vagina”. If that’s the case I really, really hope for his sake they never find a cure.
Do you think Erick’s comment was sexist? Let us know in the comments!
