Peter Hansen, New Hampshire Lawmaker, Calls Women 'Vaginas' In Email To Colleagues
State Rep. Peter Hansen (R) made the comment, first reported by New Hampshire political blogger Susan the Bruce, in an April 1 email debate with colleagues about a "stand your ground" gun bill. Hansen's colleague, Rep. Steve Vaillancourt (R) had delivered a lengthy floor speech about the benefits of retreating instead of using deadly force, to which Hansen replied in an email:
Text in question...
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.
Hansen's comments are particularly bold in New Hampshire, the only state with a female governor and an all-female delegation to Congress. The speaker of the state House and the chief justice of the state Supreme Court also are both women.
But what this elected official was doing was using hyperbole. He wasn't actually referring to women as "vagina's", but instead using that sexual organ that is unique to women to signify what he was talking about.

Need I remind people of Bill Maher, and Ed Schultz ?
There are people on both sides of the aisle that use not so nice words to describe women.
Back to Bash Hansen.
