Texas Republicans Risk Banning Heterosexuals’ Right To do Anal

[flv:http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2010/07/colbertsodomy1.mp4 http://www.queerty.com/wp/docs/2010/07/colbertsodomy2.jpg 650 400]

The Texas GOP’s wish to criminalize sodomy, even after the Supreme Court, like, struck down that law, is not the most thought out plan. And while it’s true, as Stephen Colbert explains, “if we make sodomy illegal, I’m sure they’ll stop doing it,” it’s likely Republicans forgot that such a law would also prohibit God-fearing men (and pregnancy-fearing teens) from using their lady’s poop chute.

      Please, PLEASE don’t assume all Texans are idiots like this. There are a LOT of us who support gay marriage and advocate it.

      ^ So why don’t you guys start an advocacy group or something. Seriously, Texans DO get a bad wrap, and if you don’t like it, maybe you guys should stick up for yourselves a bit. Cause a little commotion.

      DO IT. :D

      Colbert is a dick. Most everything that comes out of his mouth is sarcasm, but he did just say that he’s all for banning strictly homo sodomy, but not between heteros. I can’t stand this self-righteous piece of $hit.
      & that word sodomy bugs me to no end! why is that even a legitimate word people use today?? Because of the fucking story of sodom and gomorrah?? It’s soo annoying- call it ANAL SEX! Calling it sodomy when it’s anal rape is one thing, but when it’s consensual anal sex, it shouldn’t be called that. ughhh!

      Desdemona — it’s obvious that you don’t watch The Colbert Report or even understand satire. He is pointing out how ridiculous this whole situation is; he is not actually advocating that only heteros get to perform sodomy (or anal sex, or whatever it is you want to call it).

      It’s unlikely they forgot. Our old sodomy law was one of the most restrictive, applying not only to both hetero and homo anal sex, but also to hetero and homo oral sex and even handies.

      Remember, they don’t want sodomy laws because they want to enforce them. They want them so gays and lesbians will be criminals by default, justifying discriminatory laws.

      @Desdemona: The story of Sodom and Gomorrah was about people not following Jewish custom in relation to hospitality rather than homosexuality.

      Wouldn’t the “Cowgirl” and “Reverse Cowgirl” position fall under sodomy, if my understanding of sodomy is correct. Sodomy: Any type of sexual act beyond husband and wife in the missionary position? How un-Texan!

      @Tallskin: You do know that a similar law still up for adoption in Uganda, differeing only in it’s level of punishment is the result of years of effort and millions of dollars spent by American evangelists.

      Evangelists like Obama’s not so strange bedfellow Rick Warren.

      If similar laws are passed here and GLBT sex recriminalized how long will it be before they up the ante on punishment?

      The problem is not soley a problem of rigthist islamists. It’s cultists from every major theistic religion.

      @Bill, of course I know about the african situation!!

      But, silly me, I expect more from a western country.

      You people really have got to defang your sky pixie worshippers and neuter them

      On the good news front, my predictions about the homophobia of the new coalition govt here in the UK have proven unfounded, so far. The new coalition govt is even proposing to elevate gay civil partnerships up to full marriage equality.

      @Tallskin: And Boris is for it.

      Mayor of London Boris Johnson kicked off this year’s London Gay Pride festival, marching under the banner of the Gay Liberation Front.

      Marching alongside Mr Johnson were equality minister Lynn Featherstone and Tory MPs Nick Herbert and Margot James, who is openly lesbian.

      Peter Tatchell was present, carrying a banner emblazoned with the words, “David and Sam Cameron can Marry – Gays Can’t. End the Ban on Gay Marriage”. In resoponse to this, Mr Johnson said: “If we can have a coalition between Tories and Lib Dems, why can’t we have gay marriage?”

      Mr Tatchell responded: “There you are – the mayor supports gay marriage”.

      Tatchell neatly pinned Boris and now he’ll look bad if he backtracks. http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2010/07/03/breaking-boris-johnson-kicks-off-gay-pride-with-call-for-gay-marriage/

      Expect the worst from a nation dominated by two right centrist parties competing for the bigot vote. You’ll rarely be disappointed.

      Defanging the bigots is on our list of things left over from 1776 and 1860. We’ll get to it sooner rather than later if the economy continues to nosedive.

      Hasta La Victoria Siempre…

      BTW: In French, PERDUE is the feminine adjective for “LOST,” which I believe describes him rather well!

      More evidence that the right wing lunatic repugnaticans simply can not get over their obsession with all things Gay. The word Gay is to the rightwing like blood in the water to a shark……..As correctley pointed out by many posters up above sodomy does not only refer to anal sex. It was a term adopted by who else but religious fanatics when writing laws of this nation to prevent anyone from engaging from anything but sex for the purpose of procreation.

      Let them pass the law and then start proscuting all the Texas men cheating on their wives getting sloppy blowjobs from their $20.00 whores……….

      @counterpoll: More like counterproductive.

      You pissant liberals are really scared, aren’t you? The Democrats are a total failure and so are the Republicans. That’s why lots and lots of LGTBT folks are going to sit it out November 2nd, or vote for a socialist or other left party.

      The Democrat party, the party that owns the wars, DOMA, DADT, no ENDA, the depression and the oil spill is a dinosaur looking up at the huge asteroid growing in the night sky. They have no idea that they’re extinct, but they are.

      And so are the Republicans.

      Socialism!

      Let Texas go back to being its own republic.

      A girlfriend of a str8 friend is a UT-Austin grad “with honors” & when the subject of sodomy got brought up, Miss Charming had to be informed that str8 people engage in that as well.

      In her years of schooling she’d been taught that it was a synonym for what teh ghayz do in the dark…..you could hear her neurons popping like radio static !!

      this law would never withstand constitutional muster, Lawrence V Texas didn’t strike down previous sodomy laws because they violated equal protection, the court struck down those laws because they violated privacy, it applies no matter whether you are talking about anal sex between 2 men or a man and woman.

      Aside from constitutional issues, why do Republicans, who pretend to want “small government”, want that government to intrude into our bedrooms?

      “Small government” must mean “make sure it can look through the keyhole.”
