With proposal to penalize men for masturbating, legislator aims to shake up health debate

When it comes to issues related to health, state Rep. Jessica Farrar says that men should have to undergo the same “unnecessary” and “invasive” procedures that she says Texas women are subjected to under recently passed state laws.

That’s why the the Houston Democrat on Friday filed House Bill 4260, which would fine men $100 for masturbating and create a required booklet for men with medical information related to the benefits and concerns of a man seeking a vasectomy, a Viagra prescription or a colonoscopy. The bill would also let doctors invoke their "personal, moralistic, or religious beliefs" in refusing to perform an elective vasectomy or prescribe Viagra, among other proposed requirements in the bill.

While Farrar knows her "proposed satirical regulations" will not become law, she hoped the bill's filing would at least foster a deeper discussion about what should be a priority during session years.

Nothing but an attempt to make the news, which you so graciously have helped her with.

And they're going to know when a man masturbates, how? She as stupid as they come (pun intended).

Men masturbating? Well let me tell you a little story that is true,a few years ago I was scanning around on the TV and I clicked on a station that had about 5 women in one of those shows that interviews someone who has written a book or done something they considered worth talking about. The panel had a woman on who had written a book about female masturbation. After they asked a few questions one finally asked the fateful question, aren't you embarassed to write about a subject like that? The guest answered, why should I be embarassed to write about something every woman in this room does atleast 3 times a week? WHOA you could have heard a pin drop for about5 or 6 seconds. Needless that interview ended very shortly.

Sounds like a public servant, collecting a check from the taxpayers, has waaaaay too much time on her hands and doesn't seem to worry too much about how much her sense of humor just cost "we, the people".
Pretty sure that's not the job she was sent there to do....

Good thing that we can create unlimited supplies of semen.

Are none of you smart enough to see that this fake legislation is poking fun at the ridiculous laws imposed on women and their rights regarding abortions?

I was told you could go blind doing that. So I continued until I needed glasses.

That would get expensive for liberal men.

It's called the manhaters bill.

I'm going to jail, but it doesn't make you go blind I know, cuz if it did I'd be Ray Charles.

This obstructionist drivel is not what we need in our Congressional hearings. Please limit your stupid comments to real legislation, Farrar.

Just because her husband does it to avoid her doesn't mean all men do it.

I sense a woman scorned on this thread. There are some women who are just frigid and others who blame men for all their woes. Go to Sams and get some AA's.
