Rayne Brown – Protecting North Carolina from the scourge of nipples

rayne_brownMeet Rayne Brown, North Carolina state representative for District 81, Davidson County.  Mrs. Brown is a primary sponsor of House Bill 34, which would make it a felony for women to expose their areola or nipples, except when breast feeding.

The bill is apparently a response to the second annual topless protest held in Asheville last August.  The protests are a result of gender based discrimination, as no such laws apply to men who expose their nipples in public.

The legislation clarifies what constitutes “private parts” that may not be exposed in public in North Carolina.  Violation will be a class H felony,

punishable by up to six months in jail.  Lesser, more “mundane” exposure would result in a 30 day sentence.  H34 is intended to satisfy a 1970 court ruling that state law did not specify women’s breasts as “private parts”.  It’s not clear why it took the state 43 years to address the omission.

Yes, Mrs. Brown is a Republican.  But, you knew that already, didn’t you?

Women of North Carolina, and of the United States, pay attention.  The GOP is working towards their own version of the Burqa.  Seems you can’t be trusted to go out in public without the state approving your attire first.  Another “small government” law, brought to you by the Republican Party.
