Lawmaker Takes Aim at Texas's Anti-Choice Laws With Proposed Fine for Masturbation

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A Texas lawmaker on Friday took a legislative jab at the state's anti-choice laws, filing satirical legislation that would slap a fine on men for masturbating and make those who want a vasectomy, colonoscopy, or a Viagra prescription undergo "a medically-unnecessary digital rectal exam."

I thought I'd heard of everything till I read this article.

Phillip Henry Sheridan wrote: "If I owned Texas and Hell, I would rent out Texas, and live in Hell."

Man's got a point!

Considering how much previous legislation has been so outlandish as to appear satirical, and with Trump including facts, truth and logic among the many enemies on his ever growing enemies list, we need more lawmakers to follow Farrar's lead in highlighting the absurdity of 21st century legislation.

I hope all those Texas boys have large back accounts, the fines are going to add up pretty fast, LOL!

Apt point.

Maybe it's time for an exclusively Female Committee, with the Power to determine what a Man can do with his reproductive organs.

Be careful what you wish for. I can see a ban on masturbation passing in some very conservative states.

Excellent Ms. Farrar. Sometimes I think the only thing the Texas legislature is missing is the turbans and the Kalashnikovs.


#9

Oh my- that is funny. Just visualized a peeping tom politician checking on every male just to make sure.

Hey I remember decades ago while taking a trip cross country crossing into parts of Texas. When stopping at a gas station to use the facilities, it seems I was banned because the car had Yankee license plates. I was locked out of the restrooms for being from the "wrong" state.

Damn, there goes my 401K.

I hope Rep. Farrar included a mandatory ophthalmological exam for those men receiving hospital masturbatory assistance/counseling or whatever clinical services. You wouldn't want them to go blind!

Sec.A173.008.AA HOSPITAL MASTURBATORY ASSISTANCE REGISTRY.

The Department must establish and maintain a registry of private nonprofit organizations and hospitals that register with the department to provide fully-abstinent encouragement counseling, supervising physicians for masturbatory emissions, and storage for the semen. Costs will be absorbed by the hospital or contributing private nonprofits.

God is in the details.
