: Georgia House bans female genital piercings
Amendment sponsor Rep. Bill Heath, R-Bremen, was slack-jawed when told after the vote that some adults seek the piercings.
"What? I've never seen such a thing," Heath said. "I, uh, I wouldn't approve of anyone doing it. I don't think that's an appropriate thing to be doing."
This is why we're living in a world of shit--because we have idiotic legislators who tack crap amendments to good bills.
I think pretty much everyone will agree that forced female genital mutilation is a bad thing. Why though, in conjunction with this, does there need to be some law (sponsored primarily by a man, no less) which states that a woman who wants her clitoral hood pierced cannot legally do so in this state?
There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Mr. Heath, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
So shut the fuck up, and quit legislating something you know jack about, you stupid asspony.
What is worse is I believe it passed 160-0, as no one in the entire room felt there was something wrong...
Yeah, I think that's only slightly mitigated by the original bill's intent, which is to levy harsh penalties for FGM.
But not much.

Saw "The Lunchbox's" new movie, not sure what to make of it (did enjoy it). Please post you review if/when you see it.
