I may not be a fan of piercings, but this may be going a little far?
Georgia House bans genital piercings for women
The Associated Press - ATLANTA
Genital piercings for women were banned by the Georgia House Wednesday as lawmakers considered a bill outlining punishments for female genital mutilation.
The bill would make such mutilation punishable by two to 20 years in prison. It makes no exception for people who give consent to have the procedure performed on their daughters out of religious or cultural custom.
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. The bill has already been approved by the Senate but now must return to that chamber because of the piercing amendment. Both chambers of the Legislature must agree on a single version of a bill before it can go to the governor for final approval.

I think the idiots are confusing piercing with female genital mutilation. Female genital mutilation is the removal of part, or all, of the clitoris. The belief is that it reduces a woman's desire for sex, therefore reducing the chance of sex outside marriage.

I find it highly disturbing that people who are passing laws at the state level can't make the difference between cosmetic piercing and ritual mutilation... it doesn't reflect too well on the intelligence of those lawmakers.
I mean come on, as much as I disapprove of body piercings, it doesn't take a genius to see that comparing a vaginal piercing to female circumcision makes as much sense as comparing an earring piercing to cutting your entire ear off.
Well, theres your tax dollars at work...
