Icon204 Texas Lawmaker’s ‘Satirical’ Bill Fines Men for Masturbating

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

That's the thinking behind new legislation proposed by a Texas lawmaker that would fine men $100 for masturbating and require a 24-hour cooling off period before they can buy Viagra.

Why did he headline writer put quotes around satirical? It is satirical.

Farrar contends more needs to be done to protect sperm "because that semen can be used — and is to be used — for creating more life."
Also, no points because she didn't state that every sperm is sacred.

PS. I assume that only medical facilities with corridors that are at least 8 feet wide will be licensed as legal ejaculation locations.

Default Texas lawmakers weigh bill mocking abortion laws by fining masturbation

A Texas bill establishing a $100 fine for male masturbation is one step closer to getting off the ground.
