No no no. No more "laws" to supposedly "protect me". There are thousands of things (including real licorice - but it's not bad for EVERYone) that could be construed as "bad" for us. If you let gov't and insurance companies make your decisions for you, you would not be allowed to leave your house to do ANY activities whatsoever (ANY sports, flying in airplanes for holidays, going on cruises, having champagne on your anniversary, wearing perfume etc etc).
Oh WAIT, statistically most accidents happen IN the home. Perhaps we should all live in a tent instead lol
People like Putkin would be MOST happy to welcome those who can't think for themselves, or prefer to leave the thinking up to other people. I wish those people well ~
Which part of democracy and freedom of thought have we given up on in these types of instances? Seems to me that only "freedom of rights" is newsworthy (in relation to "culture"), when the truth is most folks don't even know the difference between rights and privileges.
Personally, I think it's a horrible shame that so many died in my country for the "privilege" for people today to be so apathetic and "roll over" like cowards for the latest "PC policy".
Grow some brass ones. When you make "tribes" of people (special interest groups - religious, food choices, whatever), no one wins. Except perhaps the wolves (so much for "civilisation").

As much as I love my friends, I won't jump off a bridge WITH them. Instead, I think it's in our mutual interest for one of us to try to catch the other when they fall.
