Texas men would face fine for ...

Texas men would face fine for masturbating, need rectal exam for Viagra under proposed law

Julieta Chiquillo, The Dallas Morning News

If state Rep. Jessica Farrar has her way, men in Texas will pay a $100 fine for "unregulated masturbatory emissions" and undergo a digital rectal exam to get a vasectomy, a colonoscopy or a Viagra prescription.

Farrar's proposed legislation, filed last week, calls on the Department of State Health Services to explain the rules in an illustrated booklet titled "A Man's Right to Know."

Sound familiar? The Houston Democrat's 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. Those rules are outlined in a booklet produced by the state called "A Woman's Right to Know."

"A lot of people find the bill funny," Farrar told the Houston Chronicle. "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."

So the real question is would it be eligible for the tax free savings account under the new Health Care Plan?

Texas Lawmaker files bill to regulate men's reproduction

Texas Lawmaker Files Bill That Would Regulate Men’s Reproductive Health in a Novel Way

A Texas lawmaker has put forth a sarcastic new bill that would penalize men in the state for what are deemed “unregulated masturbatory emissions,” according to the document. State Rep. Jessica Farrar filed the satirical “men’s health” bill in response to potential laws filed by men regarding women’s health care.

Farrar, a Democrat who represents the 148th distict in Houston, put forth House Bill 4260 after being angered about how women’s health care is being regulated in the state by legislation she feels is harmful.

“A lot of people find the bill funny,” Farrar said in an interview with SF Gate. “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.”

Farrar’s bill states that a man must remain abstinent and only make infrequent “emissions” inside health and medical facilities. If a man does so outside of these respective facilities, or without a female partner, he would have to pay a $100 fine, as it would be considered “an act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life,” according to the legislation. Monies collected would go towards the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.


Wonder if there's a test for masturbation? hehehe
