And you thought only their vaginas were the problem.  No, Republican legislators in North Carolina have identified the "clear and present danger" that women pose to our great democracy:  Their Bare Nipples!

On Wednesday, the state House Judiciary Committee C approved House Bill 34, which makes it a Class H felony to purposefully expose “private parts” for the “purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire.”

The bill expands the state’s definition of “private parts” to include a woman’s “nipple, or any portion of the areola.”

It seems that some "femi-nazis" last year in Asheville, NC - but don't click on that link!  You might see a nipple! - conducted a terrorist operation by holding a protest at which at least a dozen women bared their breasts - in public!  Oh the fear that must have inspired in the good folks of Asheville, including their children.  I mean isn't anyone thinking about the children?  One view of a woman's nipple (and or an areola) would ruin their lives (unless the child's an infant, of course)!

Thank goodness for NC State Rep. Rayne Brown, for recognizing this threat and making sure that any future nipple terrorists will be convicted of a felony, punishable by up to six months in jail, if they dare to bare their evil nipples in public.  As a woman herself, who presumably has a pair (if you know what I mean) she was ideally situated to recognize the threat posed by a woman's "upper body private parts."

Unfortunately, there is a big loophole in the proposed bill that these Islamofascist Commie hippy-chicks might employ to oppress us with their boobies.  Duct tape.  Yes, even good old duct tape, in the wrong hands can be used to commit visual atrocities.

...Committee Chairwoman Rep. Sarah Steven (R) suggested that women could use pasties or nipple coverings just to be safe.  

“They’d be good to go” with nipple coverings, Stevens said.

“You know what they say, duct tape fixes everything,” Republican state Rep. Tim Moore agreed.

Oh, you filthy minded, liberal enabler, Rep. Tim Moore!  Destroying our family values again just so he could watch jiggling boobies at a public beach, for example.  How dare you suggest violating the sanctity of duct tape!

Hopefully the good state legislators will stick some amendments onto this bill to make sure it covers up every conceivable situation.  I'm thinking a simple ban on boobs would be the best solution.  After all, the right to bare breasts is not enshrined in our Constitution, Praise the Lord!

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
