A substitute teacher in Michigan has been fired. The woman was in an art history class, and used the word “vagina,” while teaching a lesson about Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings. Ana Kasparian and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Vagina. It's a noun describing female anatomy that caused such outrage in the Michigan Legislature in 2012 that a legislator was blocked from speaking after using it.

Now, a substitute teacher says using it got her fired from a Battle Creek middle school after she said it in an art history lecture.

Allison Wint, who had been teaching art at Harper Creek Middle School since January, says she was speaking about a broader topic of controversy in art when she held up reproductions of paintings by Georgia O’Keefe, some of which have been seen as erotic.”
