Whether it’s Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett telling women seeking abortions they can just close their eyes to deal with mandatory ultrasounds, or a Georgia House rep regaling his colleagues with stories about delivering dead cow and chicken fetuses in order to justify women carrying dead human fetuses to term, the past few months have been rife with shockingly inept, old white men proposing shockingly inept things about women, vaginas and female health. We figured it would be a good time to look back. Oh, and in the spirit of sex positivity, we will try to use the word “vagina” as many times as possible throughout this retrospective. Vagina.
