    t’s just another episode in a long, long string of episodes where some Michigan Republican men can’t get into any sort of back and forth with a woman without whipping out the sexist derogatory slurs. This time, it’s state House Representative Frank Foster.While visiting the neighborhood of a Michigan Nurses Association staffer, he called her a “cunt”.
    From the MNA press release:

    On Tuesday evening, Foster was visiting a home on Lansing’s south side when he walked up to the fence and asked Michigan Nurses Association staffer Julia Smith-Heck to stop mowing her lawn. They had a conversation about the “Protect Our Jobs” campaign to permanently enshrine collective bargaining rights in the Michigan Constitution, which the Michigan Nurses Association actively supports. Foster became hostile and walked away.He returned shortly afterward, demanding again that she stop mowing, saying it was bothering his autistic son. [Foster does not have children, according to his official bio information.] Smith-Heck declined, needing to finish mowing, but ended a short while later and went across the street to talk to her neighbor.
    Foster, a woman and a boy of about 3 or 4 came out and walked up to Smith-Heck and her neighbor. Foster said, “I want to introduce you to my son, Chase. I want to introduce you to the person whose night you ruined.”
    He then walked away, asking Smith-Heck, “Are you going to apologize?” She responded, “For mowing my lawn?” Foster said, “So you’re not going to apologize”? She repeated, “For mowing my lawn?” Foster yelled across the street, “You’re a cunt!”

    The MNA is demanding an apology and asking House Speaker Jase Bolger to investigate whether action should be taken against Rep. Foster for this completely unprofessional and sexist behavior. Deb Nault, Assistant Executive Director of Nursing Practice for MNA and longtime nurse said, “Frank Foster should apologize, have his mouth washed out with soap and learn to show some respect for women. I am beyond appalled that anyone, let alone a State Representative, would think it’s OK to use demeaning language like that.”
    Smith-Heck put it this way:
    I guess Frank Foster thought he could get away with screaming a derogatory term at a woman because the cameras weren’t on him. I hope his supporters and constituents are paying attention to his true character. Disagreements happen, but real adults handle it respectfully, not by using sexist, offensive insults in front of children. I expect better from our elected officials, and I look forward to receiving an apology from both Representative Foster and Speaker Bolger.
    I have a neighbor who mows his lawn constantly and it always seems to be right when we’re out enjoying the evening or trying to nap or entertain. But it never occurs to me to go out and call him derogatory names in the middle of the street in front of neighbors. In fact, it never occurs to me to confront him at all. People need to mow their lawns and it’s just a tiny price to pay for living in society: sometimes you will be mildly inconvenienced.
    But Foster clearly doesn’t have that governor on his throttle. He’s clearly comfortable not only with confrontation to get his way but also with using the most sexist, derogatory put-downs he can think of.
    Can someone please tell me how people with such poor judgement and self-restraint get elected to our state legislature? Because I. Do. Not. Get. It.
    Fuck my state seriously. Look at this conservative facebook page too for my state, filled with the biggest idiots I've ever seen, look at this (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michig...15226298495220) here's a quote from one of their statuses "Liberals tell rapists, women don't have the right to be armed against their attacks. A liberal is the best friend of a rapist. Yet it's the conservatives who have a 'war on women'?"

    I don't like it when someone calls a girl a cunt. It's just improper.

    At least tell her she is a bitch, or something. That'd get you in less trouble.

    But eh, female equality is a son of a bitch that seems poking it's head out an awful lot lately.

    I fail to see how the insult 'cunt' is misogynistic, especially when it's used both ways all the fucking time.

    The fuck are you talking about? This kind of shit in American politics has been getting more common on the Republican side for the last year or so, we've pretty much all agreed that it's ridiculous.

    The problem isn't that a derogatory insult was made and people are getting upset for no reason, but rather a politician who represents constituents in a state that has had problems between male and female politicians insulted a woman using said derogatory insult.

    This is sad. A Democrat who used the words Vagina during an abortion debate gets a gag order, but if a Republican calls a woman a cunt walks off without any punishment.

    Corruption at its finest.

    You cannot yell at Misandry/Misogny and then turn a blind eye to Misogny/Misandry, to be proper you must bash two of them at once instead of turning around and saying "LOL MEN." Otherwise you're not fixing anything.

    pretty sure when you call start calling someone a cunt, it's probably not because they're a woman. probably more along the lines of them getting you fired or crashing a car into you or something

    Come on, really? Misandry may not be nearly as prevalent as misogyny, but that hardly means it doesn't exist. Both misandry and misogyny are awful and we should be striving to get rid of both, rather than arguing about which is more important than the other.

    Do you live in America? Because Americans don't say cunt because only people with british accents can say it and not sound awkward. Americans use "asshole" instead.

    Everyone is so fucking worked up over something someone said on his own fucking time. It's not really a big deal. He was pretty douchey, and I can understand why the woman would be upset, but this shouldn't be some scandal.

    I'm saying is that Americans don't say cunt.

    Therefore, since you said you don't hear people call eachother cunts, which they do very frequently, you must live in America where people don't really say the word cunt.


    Calling somebody a "Bitch" is an insult to women. Cunt is a general insult. Learn your curse words.

    Here, it's like the worst thing you can call a person. Cunt is the only word absolutely unacceptable for any conversation.

    Considering that "cunt" directly refers to a vagina, I would say it kinda is.
