    I don't think any would be doing so to a picture of her. And her reasoning? Who knows.

    Aha. Here it is:

    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.”

    women are, "all talk and no action"; unless they come right up to us and insist, we should never have to masturbate, as long as they are around. :p

    Perhaps you were busy masturbating while the rest of the world was learning what satire is:

    >> 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 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 <<​

    Maybe some USMB thread starters aren't either.

    "Who knows?" you ask? Anyone who took half a minute to actually read the article, that's who.

    Actually I feel great, not having any legacy of starting bullshit misleading threads just because I have a 55-gallon drum of coffee and some power trip to dominate the USMB board by flooding it with bullshit threads that I couldn't be bothered to actually read before they made me look stupid.

    Nothing to do with this thread,, but a poignant portrayal of how lefthanded people were forced to switch in the past.
    Ronald Reagan was one of them.

    Interesting how they would 'find' and introduce 'evidence' eh?

    No "evidence" needed --- again, it's satire. See post 3.
