Testicular Bill Of Rights: Georgia Bill Would Place Restrictions On Viagra, Porn For Men

Testicular Bill Of Rights: Georgia Bill Would Place Restrictions On Viagra, Porn For Men March 12, 2019

Turnabout is fair play: In response to anti-abortion legislation, new proposed legislation in Georgia would place restrictions on Viagra and porn for men, as well as classifying sex without a condom as “aggravated assault.”

Georgia lawmaker Dar’shun Kendrick is proposing a new “Testicular Bill Of Rights.” The new legislation would force men “to obtain permission from their sexual partner before obtaining a prescription for Viagra,” among other things.

Georgia state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick’s “Testicular Bill Of Rights” would require men to get approval from their partner before obtaining erectile dysfunction medication, bans vasectomies, and would consider it aggravated assault if a man had sex without using a condom.

Kendrick announced her tongue-in-cheek proposal via Twitter:

In addition to a 24-hour waiting period for men to purchase any porn or sex toys in Georgia, the legislation would also mandate DNA testing once a woman is six weeks and one day pregnant to “determine the father of the child who shall IMMEDIATELY start paying child support.”

When asked about her proposed legislation, Kendrick told Rolling Stone:

I’m dead serious.

Kendrick says she expects a draft of the new legislation her desk by the end of the week. As for the reason behind the legislation, Kendrick says she wants to “bring awareness to the fact that if you’re going to legislate our bodies, then we have every right to propose legislation to regulate yours.”

Rolling Stone explains:

Kendrick is spearheading the legislation, which she admits has little hope of ever passing the Georgia House of Representatives, to highlight the absurdity of HB 481, a bill that similarly legislates women’s bodies. On Thursday, the Georgia House approved HB 481, which would outlaw most abortions once a doctor can detect a heartbeat in the womb or around six weeks — before many women even realize they might be pregnant. The controversial “heartbeat bill” passed by a vote of 93-73. The bill will now head to the Georgia State Senate and, if approved as expected, to Governor Brian Kemp’s desk.

And Rep. Kendrick explains:

[The bill is designed] to show how ridiculous it is that any state government should regulate what people do to their bodies. Some people are going to love it and some people are going to hate it, but at the end of the day, I am a staunch, pro-choice Democrat that was elected by 54,000 people to come down there and fight for them.  That’s what I’m doing is fighting.

Bottom line: In response to absurd anti-abortion legislation, Georgia lawmaker Dar’shun Kendrick is proposing equally absurd legislation that would force men “to obtain permission from their sexual partner before obtaining a prescription for Viagra,” among other things.
