In Boston the Democrats want to make it illegal to say "bitch".
House Bill 3719 says:
(c) A person who uses the word “bitch” directed at another person to accost, annoy, degrade or demean the other person shall be considered to be a disorderly person in violation of this section, and shall be subject to the penalties provided in subsections (a) and (b). A violation of this subsection may be reported by the person to whom the offensive language was directed at or by any witness to such incident.
If this bill passes it will mean a $200 fine is delivered to the offender.
Obviously the word "Bitch" means "female dog". We only think the word is offensive because some of us have told ourselves it's offensive. Words only have meaning because we give them meaning.
Even still, this is just one more example of the offense industry injecting Leftism into government policies.
Doesn't this feel like it's a violation of the First Amendment? Words can't be illegal, can they?
