The Georgia state House of Representatives passes a bill that banned any and all genital piercings for women, even when it involves consenting adults, as part of an effort to halt the female genital mutilation the occurs in some Muslim populations. No ban on either genital piercings or genital mutilation for men is included.

When the law's sponsor Rep. Bill Heath, R-Bremen, is confronted with this information, he is surprised but unapologetic:

"What? I've never seen such a thing. I, uh, I wouldn't approve of anyone doing it. I don't think that's an appropriate thing to be doing."

So it's OK to ban genital piercings for women because, in Bill Heath's opinion, they shouldn't be doing that sort of thing anyway.
