Democrat Daniel J. Hunt (whose last name was surely a playground favorite) introduced “An Act regarding the use of offensive words,” which would fine individuals $150 for a first offense, while repeat offenders would face a $200 fine, up to six months’ imprisonment, or both.
Section 53 of chapter 272 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2016 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following subsection:
(c) A person who uses the word “bitch” directed at another person to accost, annoy, degrade or demean the other person shall be considered to be a disorderly person in violation of this section, and shall be subject to the penalties provided in subsections (a) and (b). A violation of this subsection may be reported by the person to whom the offensive language was directed at or by any witness to such incident.
