I suppose everyone has heard of the new NC GOP legislation that has passed the house and awaits a senate vote. It's a bill to provide criminal penalties if a woman shows her breast/nipples in public. The first offense is punishable by up to 6 months in prison. A first offense DWI is a max of 24 hours in jail ... and a 2nd and 3rd is still more lenient than this potential punishment.
There are exceptions for breastfeeding mothers and ladies working in strip clubs. Apparently, this all came about when some women bared their breasts in political protest over some other absurdity shoveled on to women by hairy, old hypocritical GOP bigots. What could that be?
Lets see ... the choices are so many it's hard to know ... trans-vaginal wanding ... treating women on birth control/hormone therapy as harlots ... dismantling Planned Parenthood ... lowering unemployment benefits ... planning to tax food at 4X the current rate (among other things) so corporations and the rich can skate on state income taxes? Maybe it was a protest against opposing the Affordable Care Act ... since women are often treated 2nd class in that area as well. Maybe it was protesting Burr's vote against renewing the Violence Against Women Act ... like so many other Republicans did. I wonder why Republicans, men and women, hate other women so much?
I guess Republicans see no problem with women working in a strip joint, likely unhappily showing their stuff for money. But, if you show your TaTa's to protest misogyny, that's a crime. The old North State is very, very sick. New signs will be needed at NC highway welcome stations: WELCOME TO NORTH CAROLINA. FASTEN SEAT BELTS. $1000 FINE FOR LITTERING. SIX MONTHS IN JAIL FOR SHOWING YOUR TATAS. GOOBERNOR PAT BRAINDEAD.
