A Good Ol' Fashioned Sodomy Law
By 2003 most states had repealed their laws against consensual sodomy. Depending on the old statute, consensual sodomy is oral sex and/or anal sex. In 2003, nevertheless 13 hardcore states were still policing America's bedrooms. In that year, however, the US Supreme Court reversed its infamous 1986 Bowers v. Hardwick decision which upheld state sodomy laws without ever discussing that yes, even heterosexuals get blow jobs. In 2003, however, the US Supreme Court decided it was the 21st century and that it was time to get the government out of the sex lives of consenting adults.
So, that was a full DECADE ago, yet the Baton Rouge police were still charging people with consensual sodomy. The local prosecutors of course dropped the charges, but Louisiana still has its unconstitutional law on the books. A Baton Rouge legislator tried to get the archaic law repealed, but after heavy lobbying by the Christian Louisiana Family Forum, the Louisiana House voted Tuesday to KEEP the law on the books.
Louisiana is a strange state. Home to Mardi Gras and Southern Decadence, Louisiana's conservative voters re-elected Senator David Vitter (R) after it came out he hired prostitutes to allegedly dress him in diapers as part of elaborate sexual fantasies. Rest assured though. Thanks to the good people at the Christian Louisiana Family Forum, visitors and citizens alike are protected from the scourges of consensual, adult oral and anal sex by the mere continuing presence of an unenforceable and unconstitutional sodomy law still on the books.
