Avedon Carol, an unconservative overseas who has cited items from my blog before, but suspiciously never permalinked me (which probably indicates more than the usual level of discernment among those not on the starboard side of the web), has discovered, at the cleverly named spectacularly obtuse blog, a tale of continuing discrimination in the land of the great Ty Cobb:
Genital piercings for women were banned by the Georgia House Wednesday as lawmakers considered a bill outlining punishments for female genital mutilation. ...

An amendment 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.
Obviously, this is unfair to distaffers, who can no longer insert convenient rings to be tugged at during bizarre bedroom bouts, whereas their male partners (if any) are free to puncture themselves at will with any strange form of eyelets and such regalia. Are we going to hear the feminasties flailing the legislature for unfair treatment of peach state belles? Or will they reveal their true antipathy to those handicapped by the lack of one X chromosome, by gleefully encouraging all those good old boys to exercise their lonely legal privilege by having themselves pricked and pierced repeatedly?
