Texas Dem Introduces Bill Mandating Rectal Exams For Men Seeking Viagra, Fines For Masturbation

A state legislator in Texas has decided that if men want to legislate what women can do with their bodies, then that can work both ways.

State Rep. Jessica Farrar said her bill is a:

“Satirical version of a Texas law passed in 2011 that requires women to have a sonogram and hear a detailed description of the fetus before getting an abortion.”

Farrar’s bill carries the name “A Man’s Right to Know,” and it specifically mandates the following:

  • A $100 fine for “unregulated masturbatory emissions”
  • Patients must “undergo a digital rectal exam to get a vasectomy, a colonoscopy or a Viagra prescription.”

Rep. Farrar said lots of people find the bill humorous, and added:

“What’s not funny are the obstacles that Texas women face every day, that were placed there by legislatures making it very difficult for them to access health care.”

Just imagine the redneck male members of the Texas legislature having to bend over anytime they wanted their Viagra prescription renewed. Or how about they wear a monitor that would determine anytime they touched their genitals in an inappropriate manner? Wonder how fast they’d be willing to rewrite those restrictive laws aimed at women’s reproductive rights?
