And they wonder why they're called the Stupid Party
And Republicans wonder why they’re known as the Stupid Party.
North Carolina Republican state Rep. Tim Moore says that women can protect themselves from a new law that makes baring female breasts illegal by simply applying duct tape to their nipples.
On Wednesday, the state House Judiciary Committee C approved House Bill 34, which makes it a Class H felony to purposefully expose “private parts” for the “purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire.”
The bill expands the state’s definition of “private parts” to include a woman’s “nipple, or any portion of the areola.”
Under the proposed law, women could spend up to six months in jail for a first offense. “Incidental” nipple exposure by breastfeeding mothers would be exempt from the law.
Wow. How long before some member of the religious right Republican Taliban posing as a Republican legislator proposes a law that forces women to wear red, white and blue burqas?
Best line I’ve read in reaction to the proposed law: “If nipples are outlawed, only outlaws will have nipples.”
