Legalizing Gay Sex Makes Alabamans “Less Protected” From Sexual Assault, Claims Attorney General

gay-flag-rainbow

This week, Alabama shook off a long overdue, ridiculous law criminalizing oral and anal sex between unmarried partners. The anti-sodomy law was mostly used to criminalize homosexual behavior, even between consenting unmarried partners (I probably don’t need to tell you gay marriage is not legal in AL). An appeals court overturned the law, citing the Supreme Court’s 2003 Lawrence vs. Texas decision that found criminalizing same-sex behavior was unconstitutional.

Now Alabama’s Attorney General (and owner of a perfect movie villain name) Luther Strange wants the appeals court to reconsider — and he may kinda, sorta have a point. Bear with me … Keep reading »

Welcome to the 21st century, Alabama!

On Friday, an appeals court in the state overturned the anti-sodomy law, which criminalized consensual oral and anal sex between unmarried partners. The great state of AL punished “any act of sexual gratification between persons not married to each other involving the sex organs of one and the mouth or anus of another” with a year in prison or hard labor or up to a $2,000 fine. The law was meant to harass and intimidate gays in particular — I mean, you know they weren’t going after teen boys getting BJs from their girlfriends in the backseat of their pickup trucks.  Keep reading »

Welcome to the 21st century, Virginia! Despite the Supreme Court ruling in 2003 that state law can not deem sexual relations between consenting adults a “crime,” VA has continued to do so for 10 years — until this week.  An appeals court finally nixed the state’s anti-sodomy law regulating “crimes against nature,” which criminalized anal and oral sex between consenting adults. The law was basically seen as a justification for VA authorities to further persecute gay and lesbian folks. Well, that is no more. Commit all the crimes against nature (between consenting adults, of course) that you want! [Huffington Post, Queerty]

Graphic Lives Of Malaysian Politicians Can’t Be Censored Online

The majority of Malaysia’s population is Muslim, and government censors do quite a bit of cutting to keep overly sexual scenes out of movies and other forms of entertainment. These days, they’re having a much more difficult time keeping naughty information out of the news, as two of the country’s top politicians are involved in sexual exploits that are being written about all over the internet. The first man, Anwar Ibrahim, a former deputy prime minister, is accused of sodomy, a crime that can carry a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. The other, Najib Razak, the deputy prime minister and heir to the current prime minister, has been linked to a woman who was brutally killed in 2006. Since widespread internet censorship is very difficult, Malaysians are learning a lot more about their government officials’ lives than they’re used to. [NY Times] Keep reading »
