I can believe that he can’t keep it in his pants. I just can’t believe that there are that many women interested in what this rambling’ man  has to offer. Maybe some Men’s Rights Activists will come along to explain it all. Anyway, this neck-tattooed Johnny Appleseed’s days of carefree breeding are over, courtesy of a special plea agreement.

Barely 40 years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for a single mother on welfare, or a patient in a mental hospital in North Carolina, to be sterilized against her will.

But North Carolina wasn’t alone: More than half of states in the U.S. had eugenics laws, some of which persisted into the 1970s.

North Carolina is now considering compensating its sterilization victims. A state panel heard from some of them Wednesday. They were mostly poor and uneducated — both black and white — and often just girls when it happened.

Elaine Riddick says she was sterilized at the age of 14.
