Christian Republican: If women can breastfeed in public, I can grab their breasts

State representative Josh Moore.

In what could only be described as the most astonishingly ignorant and stunningly misogynistic comments from a politician’s mouth yet — and there are certainly plenty to choose from — an elected politician said women who expose their breasts in public should have no problem with men gawking at or grabbing their breasts.

Men and women in New Hampshire are legally allowed to bare their nipples in public, but State Representative Josh Moore and others are attempting to pass a bill that would make it illegal — for women only, of course. According to the bill, a woman could be charged with a misdemeanor if she “purposely exposes the areola or nipple of her breast or breasts in a public place and in the presence of another person with reckless disregard for whether a reasonable person would be offended or alarmed by such an act.”

Though the bill ostensibly makes exceptions for breastfeeding, Moore does not. After State Representative Amanda Bouldin rightly criticized the absurdly backwards bill on Facebook, Moore — a politician people chose to author policy — responded with a post of his own, which Slate archived for posterity:

“Who doesn’t support a mothers [sic] right to feed? Don’t give me the liberal talking points Amanda. If it’s a woman’s natural inclination to pull her nipple out in public and you support that, than [sic] you should have no problem with a mans [sic] inclantion [sic] to stare at it and grab it. After all… It’s ALL relative and natural, right?”

Yes, not only does Moore have jaw-droppingly chauvinistic ideas about women, as well as radically out-of-touch assumptions about his own gender, but his basic command of the English language appears to be on rather shaky ground. If Moore’s disgusting display weren’t godawful enough, State Representative Al Baldasaro hastily inserted both feet in his own mouth with this equally stupefying statement:

“Amanda, No disrespect, but your nipple would be the last one I would want to see. You want to turn our family beach’s [sic] into a pervert show. Liberterians [sic] want a nude beach, put your money together and buy one, if you want to expose you [sic] kids to nudity, go for it. Some of us liberty minded [sic] Reps do beleive [sic] in family values.”

Before you ask, the answer is no — though their spellcheck apps apparently quit in disgust — these elected politicians’ accounts had not been hacked.

Twitter responded brilliantly, with some praising Moore for taking the lead in 2016 “DOUCHEBAG OF THE YEAR!” and one user promising Moore, “fine, we’ll be by to kick you in the balls.”

Despite the mind-numbing ignorance of Moore’s and Baldasaro’s misogynistic and quite public statements, Bouldin told Mark Joseph Stern at Slate she wasn’t ruffled at all — and only wants to ensure the bill doesn’t pass.

“We shouldn’t be introducing new legislation that only applies to women,” she explained. “If we had any laws that started with the sentence ‘women should not,’ they should have been repealed by now.”

Besides inane and backwards legislation in need of repeal, perhaps the 2016 elections could be best employed to rid the state legislature of a few inane and backwards legislators, as well.

  1. Hey PIG FACE … YOU START GRABBING THE BABY FEEDERS in PUBLIC … AND… YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED for ASSAULT. YOU ARE NEITHER A BABY or INVITED. SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH, KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF, AND HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR WHAT ALLOWED YOU TO SURVIVE INFANCY … YOUR MOTHER’S MILK.

  2. Hey Pig FACE Jose Moore … There is a REASON Republicans are IDIOTS… we are still debating what exactly that is…. HOWEVER… on the issue of GRABBING A MOTHER FEEDING HER BABY – NIPPLES … DO SO … and … YOU WILL BE ARRESTED ON ASSAULT. YOU ARE NEITHER A BABY – OR – A TODDLER – where LACK of REASON is allowable. Nor are you advocating REQUESTING to fondle the mom's nipples, but intentionally assaulting a HUMAN BEING who is DOING what YOUR MOM DID FOR YOU … SO YOU MIGHT SURVIVE BABYHOOD … FEED YOU HER MOTHER'S MILK.

    PLEASE GROW UP YOU ASSHOLE … and … WOMEN… LET US UNITE …. use your SHARP NAIL FILES … against ANY ASSHOLE COMING TOO CLOSE TO YOU … before THEY try to take what is NOT THEIRS.

  3. The New Hampshire state motto used to be Live Free or Die.
    Perhaps the legislature is choosing to Die. Its heartening to hear a legislature make a clear statement about no laws should apply to one gender or the other. And those two idiots….one step forward two backwards.

  4. ,, yes , it , he “should be “ and if I or any other person catches him , Heaven help his testicles !!! I will use his guts for garters and his balls for yo-yos!!
    This is a very dangerous loose cannon. ,, needs to be removed soon!!! M

  5. Just a warning. If you touch my wife like that, I will beat you to death right on the spot..better think before you act… It May be your last.

  6. My wife should be allowed to feed my child somewhere other than a filthy public bathroom stall. You wanna eat your dinner next to the public toilet? Don’t grab my wife, if she doesn’t break your arm I will.

  7. America is insane. People don't trip out from Iceland to Istanbul about this. Its normal, who cares. Get over it and move on with your lives.

  8. Nothing like digging up an old article around election time to discredit an entire political party…
    The guy is beyond scum though and is not a good example of the average Republican or Christian.

  9. Sooo, would that mean that it would be appropriate for the patrons at the next table to cove over and grab his lunch (that's, after all, what breasts are for: to feed the human babies)?
