Nanny, Again

Is there anything anywhere that some politician somewhere does not want to regulate?


Via AZ Central:

House Bill 2793, proposed by Rep. Katie Hobbs, D-Phoenix, would require advertisers who alter or enhance a photo to put a disclaimer on that ad alerting customers that “Postproduction techniques were made to alter the appearance in this advertisement. When using this product, similar results may not be achieved.”

The bill has little to no chance of success. But Hobbs said that’s OK.


“We just wanted to bring it to the table and start a discussion,” she said. “We need to bring attention to these body-image issues, especially with young girls. Girls need to know that they don’t have to look perfect.”

Ah, for the children. Of course.
