Good work Texas, good work

Postby muse » 2017-03-15 10:28am

This bill is now before the Legislature in Texas.
http://www.legis.state.tx.us/tlodocs/85 ... 04260I.htm

Choice excerpts:

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT
relating to the regulation of men's health and safety; creating a
civil penalty for unregulated masturbatory emissions.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
SECTION 1. Subtitle H, Title 2, Health and Safety Code, is
amended by adding Chapter 173 to read as follows:
Sec. 173.001. SHORT TITLE. This chapter may be called the
Man's Right to Know Act.
Sec. 173.002. PURPOSE. The purpose of this chapter is to
express the state's interest in promoting men's health; ensure
Texas men experience safe and healthy elective vasectomies, Viagra
utilizations, colonoscopies procedures, and men's health
experiences; ensure a doctor's right to invoke their personal,
moralistic, or religious beliefs in refusing to perform an elective
vasectomy or prescribe Viagra; and promote fully-abstinent sexual
relations or occasional masturbatory emissions inside health care
and medical facilities, as a means of the healthiest way to ensure
men's health.


Sec. 173.009. SONOGRAM ELECTION. An attending physician
must administer a medically-unnecessary digital rectal exam and
magnetic resonance imagining of the rectum before administering an
elective vasectomy or colonoscopy procedure, or prescribing
Viagra. This digital rectal exam and rectal sonogram must take
place during the initial health care consultation before an
elective vasectomy is performed, a prescription is given for
Viagra, or a colonoscopy is performed.
Sec. 173.010. FINES RELATED TO MASTURBATORY EMISSIONS.
Masturbatory emissions created in health or medical facilities will
be stored for the purposes of conception for a current or future
wife.
(a) Emissions outside of a woman's vagina, or created
outside of a health or medical facility, will be charged a $100
civil penalty for each emission, and will be considered an act
against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of
life.
(b) Penalties collected under this section will be
deposited in a fund established by the Department of Family and
Protective Services for the purpose of the care and services
provided to children in the conservatorship of the Department of
Family Protective Services in order to assist in the assertion of
the importance of the sanctity of life.

Every time that you think the Republican Party can't get crazier, or stupider...

Edit: Note, also, how it penalizes "Emissions outside of a woman's vagina..."

So its both a masturbation ban and a return of the sodomy ban.

Of course, even if this were to pass, the Supreme Court would presumably slap it down, unless the Orange Rapist (who thinks that sex should only be between a rich man and coerced, possibly underage models) gets to appoint more than one more judge. But the fact that its futile stupidity doesn't make it any less stupid.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

You know those times when someone bungs up so bad that you can't even bring yourself to laugh at him? This is one of those times. I'd suggest looking up the name of the person who introduced this bill and her party affiliation. This shouldn't be too hard, given that her name is right at the top of the bill.

I see. Its a satirical bill introduced by a Democrat. But their's absolutely no way to tell that from the OP post or the article it linked to, and, let's be honest, would anyone be surprised if a Republican legislator seriously introduced such a bill?

Hell, I could totally see this attempt at trolling backfiring when the Republicans vote it in, in the name of Christian values.

I don't know, maybe you just have more faith in the Republican Party than I do.

Edit: Well pranked, OP.

Eh, Bible Belters pretty much hate sex. They may hate female and gay sex more, but anything not Bible-sanctioned is likely to get frowned on, at least publicly.

I should... totally throw this in my wife's face because our "us time" has been cut down WAY to low since the birth of FeniX Jr. Be like, "Honey! I can't be breaking the law so DO YOUR DUTY FOR AMERICA!"

You guys are hilarious at times though. Like, this thread is a fucking riot. Look, Texas is BAD, but there ARE people here who fight the power and are willing to fight fire with.... male semen.

I got this immediately. Farrar, IIRC, was also behind the Democrats in the legislature taking off for OK to fuck Republicans way back. LOOSE CANNON! I've always liked this woman.

You can pay the masturbation fine, or for just $10 more, you can get laid!

Yes, I would be surprised because it would seriously inconvenience men and penalize them for being men. That's not the Republican Way. Christian white men are the default and the ideal.

Point taken, though like I said, the Christian Right also has an ideological hostility towards sex (or at least any sex not strictly for reproduction) in general. So targeting, say, masturbation is at least conceivably within their ideological framework.

Arkansas just introduced a bill where a woman who has been raped can be sued by her rapist to prevent her from aborting. The problem is that state and federal districts are so rigged that the only competition is to see who can be the most bigoted, misogynistic asshole. Like George Wallace vowing to never be "out-niggrahed" again in Alabama.

That's impressively shit. Though I suppose it would require you to basically confess to the rape before you can sue though, so I doubt many people who aren't already imprisoned for rape would do so.

The important thing is that knocked up women with financial means can still go to another country to get an abortion.

Unless the charges were dropped (or the case was lost) on the belief that the sex occurred, but was consensual. Which is most cases.
