Fear a Government That Fears Your Dildo 

Another southern state has decided what is and what isn't good for adults to do in the privacy of their bedroom:

Lucy's Love Shop employee Wanda Gillespie said she was flabbergasted that South Carolina's Legislature is considering outlawing sex toys.

But banning the sale of sex toys is actually quite common in some Southern states.
The South Carolina bill, proposed by Republican Rep. Ralph Davenport, would make it a felony to sell devices used primarily for sexual stimulation and allow law enforcement to seize sex toys from raided businesses.

"That would be the most terrible thing in the world," said Ms. Gillespie, an employee the Anderson shop. "That is just flabbergasting to me. We are supposed to be in a free country, and we're supposed to be adults who can decide what want to do and don’t want to do in the privacy of our own homes."

In related news, prices for banana and cucumber futures increased 10% and saw elevated trading on the markets this morning. I wrote about this last year in regards to a similar law in Alabama. What is it with southern states anyway?
