Texas Democrat Jessica Farrar Wants To Fine Men For Masturbating A Satirical Bill On Your Dime

This ridiculous news out of Texas shines a light on the need for our elected representatives to take their jobs more seriously.

From BBC

Jessica Farrar, a Democratic member of the Texas House of Representatives, submitted House Bill number 4260 last week. She knows it will never become law. Indeed, it is unlikely to make it far at all.

But she argues it is no more extreme than the restrictions put on women by the state of Texas when it comes to choosing whether or not to end their pregnancy.

Our lawmakers unironically introduce horrible legislation, and I recognize it is subjective to say that, but to intentionally propose something you know will not come close to passing shows the lack of seriousness politicians have today. They forget who pays them, and even the citizens of Farrar’s district should feel insulted at her lack of professionalism, creativity, and willingness to put up an actual fight for what she and her constituents believe.
