It wasn't because she said "vagina" but because saying "I`m so flattered you are interested in my vagina, but no means no" is rude and unnecessary in the setting it was used and did nothing but overshadow her point.

we do realise that vagina is a scientific term, its not like she said eat my pussy, or something truly offensive.

@Bluefalcon: You might want to take that stick out of your rectum and watch it again. It was fully contextual. Beside, when did using a word that even pre-schoolers know become "unbecoming"?

She holds a government office and is upheld to a higher standard, I fall under this myself being in the military. People in her position and mine are supposed to show a professional image to the public. This was open for viewing to the public so there is no question on if she was aware it would be seen publicly. Using the word "vagina" in that context had no scientific meaning, along with adding, "no means no," at the end alluring to rape.

Bottom Line. She made a decision to act in a way unbecoming a government official and has to be held responsible for her actions, regardless of the matter she was bringing up. She knew the consequences of her actions, and that language like that would result in a retaliatory action her.

zeeger60: "republicans want censorship? Fine. A bullet in the head everytime a republican lies."

C'mon, man. They don`t lie anymore than anyone else. Try telling them the earth isn`t flat. Of course they`ll dispute it, but they`re not actually "lying". They actually believe it.
