Texas womyn lawmaker proposes to penalize men for masturbating

Farrar: Wants you to stop and think, if you are capable of that

From Texas Tribune: 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 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.

“What I would like to see is this make people stop and think,” Farrar told The Texas Tribune. “Maybe my colleagues aren’t capable of that, but the people who voted for them, or the people that didn’t vote at all, I hope that it changes their mind and helps them to decide what the priorities are.”

Farrar said her bill, titled the “Man’s Right To Know Act,” takes the argument that “we’re looking at the sanctity of life,” a term that has already been highly debated this legislative session as several Texas Republicans have proposed legislation aimed at abortions.

“Protecting the life of unborn children should not be a controversial issue,” state Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, said last month.

In proposing a fine for masturbation, Farrar says that if a man’s semen is not used to create a pregnancy, “then it’s a waste … because that semen can be used — and is to be used — for creating more human life.”

Farrar continued: “Men have to answer for their actions and so forth. So if there’s going to be an emission, it would have to be done in a hospital where the semen could be preserved for future pregnancies or it would be directly deposited into the vagina of a woman.

HB 4260 also calls for informed consent for elective vasectomies, colonoscopy procedures and Viagra prescriptions. Consent is informed only if at least 24 hours have passed since a man’s initial health care consultation for the procedure or prescription. The bill would also require a rectal exam before administering an elective vasectomy or colonoscopy procedure, or prescribing Viagra — an exam that the bill acknowledges is medically unnecessary.

An outspoken proponent of abortion rights, Farrar has fought against Texas legislation mandating a 24-hour waiting period between a required consultation and receiving an abortion, and another measure requiring women to have a transvaginal ultrasound while listening to the fetal heartbeat before undergoing the procedure, a measure Farrar says “messes with women’s heads.”

Farrar has criticized several anti-women’s health bills that have been filed this session, primarily a measure filed by state Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, that would require Texas hospitals to bury or cremate fetal remains and another by state Rep. Tony Tinderholt, R-Arlington, that would charge both abortion providers and women who receive an abortion with murder.

At a House State Affairs committee hearing Wednesday, Cook was challenged by Farrar and other House Democrats who questioned how his bill would impact women’s mental health and how much it would cost. Cook said his measure would create a registry of organizations that can help pay for burial or cremation of fetal remains. That way, the cost associated with burials would not fall on women, Cook said.

“Let me be clear: this bill has nothing to do with abortion procedures whatsoever. It has everything to do with ensuring the dignity of the deceased,” Cook said Wednesday. “We believe Texas can do better than this.”

Cook did not immediately respond to the Tribune’s request for comment Sunday.

In a statement, Tinderholt said Farrar lacked “a basic understanding of human biology.”

“I’m embarrassed for Representative Farrar,” Tinderholt said. “Her attempt to compare [HB 4260] to the abortion issue shows a lack of a basic understanding of human biology. I would recommend that she consider taking a high school biology class from a local public or charter school before filing another bill on the matter.”

Farrar said the filing of her bill was necessary this session because of the bills she says directly targeted women’s ability to make choices about their own bodies and care. And she told the Tribune that the election of President Donald Trump will add additional hurdles and that the tone regarding women’s health has gotten worse from years past.

“Especially with Trump as president, I think these folks are on fire now. They’re off the chain now,” Farrar said. “If they can elect someone based on making racist remarks and derogatory remarks toward women and such, then we’ve just given them license to offend and license to be even worse than before.”

    So she says her bill is necessary because of the bills that directly target a women’s ability to make choices about their own body. I would think that in at least most cases those choices should, could, and possibly are made before taking the risk of pregnancy. I’m sure the risks are well understood before consummation, by both parties involved.

    I would say it is only the acceptance of responsibility that need be legislated.

  7. A vasectomy is a form of birth prevention and not a form of abortion that murders a viable human baby. Women can elect to have their tubes tied to prevent pregnancies instead of murdering a baby. There is a world of difference between preventing pregnancy and killing a baby because you did not take an ounce of prevention. There are also many other ways women and men can use to prevent conception ahead of murdering a baby!

  8. This is all Very Rediculouse, but let’s see how far we can take this: = If Men are to be penalized for “helping themselves” then “that does it.” Where in her proposed legislation is there a penalty for weymn who choose to “self help” themselves with vibrating dildos..?? In all fairness her legislation should also mandate by LAW that every woymn’s orgasm MUST have Male assistance..!! – – “I just knew this Subject would get “out of hand..!!”

    • I could not agree more with you. This idiot is taking up time on the clock, being paid for doing a job, that obviously she is not doing. She is trying to get some kind of “payback.” As you said, “vote her to the curb side.” Citizens need to know that their representatives are seriously doing the job they were sent to the capitol to perform. Obviously, she really is a nut job, and incapable of carrying the duties of her job.

  12. I take it that she likes to watch.
    But I sort of see her point: If hurdles are placed in between a woman and her access to an abortion, why cannot men be held accountable for their choices? The difference is that abortion kills a baby and self-abuse, in and of itself, does not. But again, the act of self-abuse does not respect the sanctity of life, either.
    I do agree with Farrarr on one point: Her colleagues, in all likelihood, probably don’t think much. Voters and lobbyists don’t want elected officials that think. That would go against their interests.

  13. In libtard fashion they have it backwards. The state should PAY $100 for young men to masturbate to prevent them from rape. And they should send the evidence to Farrar for payment.

  14. Umm, excuse me please….to be fair women must be fined every month because they menstruated. An EGG is discarded – (like in semen)…oops she didn’t think through her argument very well!
    The same potential loss of life!

    And then there is this:

    Shouldn’t the woman partner of the masterbating man also be fined? Because if she had been available to him or willing to have sex with him they could have made a baby….

    • To True George, first off I am a man. A married man. A woman’s vagina does NOT belong to her husband nor her boyfriend any more than your penis belongs to your female partner. I agree that both should be shared with the partner ONLY, but it doesn’t belong to you. In most states a man can be arrested and charged if he rapes his wife. Your body belongs to you only so don’t talk like an ignorant idiot. It is attitudes like yours that cause so much strife in marriages today. You have a PIMP attitude.

    The difference is so obvious that I won’t waste my time, by writing a lengthy comment on the subject, any more than to say, that neither men nor women have any moral obligation to their eggs, or to their sperm, but rather, the moral obligation only comes into play, ,..AFTER,..the egg & a sperm have come together, & it is , only at that point, when a new human being has , thereby, been, , created, that moral responsibility comes into play..
