Asshole Of The Day.

Richard Ross, Asshole of the Day for March 22, 2014

Republicans say there is no War On women. They say it, but they they do things like propose laws requiring women going through divorce to get a judge’s permission to date or have sex:

There’s nothing that sets the mood for a romantic evening like petitioning a judge for permission to have sex at the end of the night.

If Massachusetts State Sen. Richard J. Ross (R) gets his way, that’s exactly what many women (and men) would have to do if they have children and are going through a divorce. In fact, not only would permission-less coitus be banned, but so too would the romantic evening and many dating activities.

Ross’ bill seeks to amend Massachusetts divorce law with the following provision (emphasis added):

In divorce, separation, or 209A proceedings involving children and a marital home, the party remaining in the home shall not conduct a dating or sexual relationship within the home until a divorce is final and all financial and custody issues are resolved, unless the express permission is granted by the courts.

Now of course the man who moves out needs no such permission to date or have sex; only the woman who stays with the children in the house.

And please don’t try to tell me that this could mean either spouse, because the parent who stays with the kids is almost always the woman. Like 83% of the time (2007).

Additionally, this is no short time period:

Massachusetts law currently mandates a waiting period of at least 120 days for divorces to become finalized, and that’s only after a judge has approved the separation agreement. In other words, it could take at least four months, if not longer, before a person getting a divorce is legally allowed to fornicate.

So, for trying to punish the women going through divorce but not men, Richard Ross is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Richard Ross’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
