The Texas lawmaker is making a point about legislation that restricts women's access to health care and abortions by proposing to fine men $100 when they masturbate. Alongside the penalty for wasting semen not resulting in a pregnancy, Farrar's bill would require a "medically unnecessary digital rectal exam" before any man undergoes a vasectomy or can be prescribed Viagra.

Doc Thompson took time on "The Morning Blaze" Thursday to  thoroughly mock a Texas Democratic lawmaker for her legislation that would fine a man $100 each time he masturbates. According to the lawmaker, state Rep. Jessica Farrar, her bill is a supposed to be a satirical point about sexist double standards and to shine a light on women's health care rights.

Co-host Khal Elsebai noted that Farrar's statement "was quite strong, even though moronic."

Thompson explained that, in order to do satire, there has to be a relative comparison — which would not include a likening of masturbation to abortion.

"I've been told that men don't exclusively masturbate, that maybe women do," Thompson said, adding that the same bill against men should also be used against women in the name of consistency.
