Bill Introduced in Texas State House That Would Fine Men for Masturbating

A bill introduced in the Texas state House imposes a $100 fine for men every time that they masturbate.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Jessica Farrar, imposes the fine alongside a 24-hour waiting period if the man wants a colonoscopy or a vasectomy. The bill was not introduced in an attempt to pass such legislation, but rather a point that Farrar was attempting to make about women’s health, and more specifically abortion, in the state.

“I’m embarrassed for Representative Farrar. Her attempt to compare to the abortion issue shows a lack of a basic understanding of human biology,” said Rep. Tony Tinderholt in a statement.

“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.”
