I came across this on Facebook, looked it up myself, and am passing it on for the good of all MANkind...

The female representative did introduce this bill as a JOKE. But a joke with a point. Here's more info on it: https://www.texastribune.org/2017/03/12/rep-farrar-bill/



Since I teach Texas Government, I feel it's sorta important for me to pass on these kinds of things. I didn't know you all two years ago when the Legislature last met. And there are many of the opinion that having them meet every two years is still once too many...

This should be posted in the RSP forum.

While I agree technically, I find humor in a news story about a masturbation bill being posted in the 1 Player Guild.

Ah, too true! Completely forgot about that section of the geek...

I'm happy to move/delete if so desired.

You could just delete your original post and repost in RSP. It would leave one of those cool mystery threads where there's a great conversation...except for the OP who erased the first post!

As for RSP...I hate going there, but I do once in awhile. It's like rubbernecking at an vehicle accident site. You look, but you know you shouldn't. It feels like a cesspool where most people think they're incredibly intelligent but nothing positive ever comes out of it except shoulder clapping among the like minded group thinkers.

I shouldn't be so hard, I guess it's no different than talking politics anywhere else on the internet. The instantaneous back and forth of message boards is, I don't think, terribly conducive to meaningful debate.

Off my soapbox.

It's a very interesting and serious point introduced in a clever way but yeah, conversations about it would probably have to be held elsewhere.

Thanks for this though.
