Representative Bruce Borders (R-Jasonville) and Representative Sandy Blanton (D-Orleans) plan on making it a crime for adult male tanning salon employees to spray tan nude minor females.
A state lawmaker says he plans to sponsor a bill next session that would bar adult males from applying spray-on tans to female juveniles at tanning salons.
State Rep. Bruce Borders, R-Jasonville, said he was shocked by a recent case where an adult man who works at a tanning salon applied a spray-on tan on a nude 15-year-old girl.
All too often, it seems to me, legislators introduce general legislation based on particular cases. Is this really a common problem? More to the point, is this really *criminal* activity? Because why? Because a man saw a young female’s body? There is no evidence of lascivious intent or any harm to anyone.
As a business owner, I wouldn’t allow my male employees to be alone with or involved with underage females. As an insurer, I wouldn’t insure a business that operated in such a fashion. As a parent, I don’t want my kids naked in front of adults except for the occasional doctor. But is this or should it be criminal behavior? Should we lock people up for this? I don’t think so.
