Now here’s a good way to spend taxpayer’s money — the Georgia House just voted 166-0 to ban female genital piercing.

An amendment [to a bill banning female genital mutilation] adopted without objection added “piercing” to the list of things that may not be done to female genitals. Even adult women would not be allowed to get the procedure. The bill eventually passed 160-0, with no debate.

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.”

The ban applies only to women, not men.

Well, of course it only applies to women. Nobody’s gonna tell us menfolk what we can and can’t do with our peckers (as long as we’re not doing them with other men, y’hear?)!

I do wonder just how they intend to enforce this law, though. Can I get on the task force to investigate possible infractions? ;)
