Like Gay Sex, Would Rod Jetton Call Choking+Hitting Sex ‘Deviate Sexual Intercourse’?

Rod Jetton

Rod Jetton, the former Missouri House Speaker and current political consultant, in 2007 removed Republican colleague Rep. Scott Lipke as chairman of the crime prevention committee because Lipke dared use a “protect kids from sexual predators” bill to delete 14 words from the lawbooks that would’ve eliminated the state’s ban on gay sex. In explaining his move, Jettson referred to the act of two people of the same gender having relations as “deviate sexual intercourse.” Mr. Jetton was just charged with second-degree felony assault after allegedly hitting and choking a woman he engaged in rough sex with earlier this month. Their safe word was “green balloons”; Mr. Jetton allegedly told the woman the next morning, after hitting her in the face and choking her before having intercourse with her, that she should’ve used the safe word. What was that about deviate sexual intercourse again?
