The Supreme Court struck down a ban on gay sex Thursday, ruling that the law was an unconstitutional violation of privacy.

Even more good news: Of the 13 states with sodomy laws, four Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri prohibit oral and anal sex between same-sex couples. The other nine ban consensual sodomy for everyone: Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia.

Thursday's ruling apparently invalidates those laws as well.

Pervy sex for everyone! Yay!

And no surprises here: Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented.

I read that this morning and cheered! first the positive ruling that race can be a factor, just not a primary factor in university admissions, and now this.

has someone dosed the supreme court's water coolers with empathy?

It's certainly out of character. The only worry now is that these rulings will further inflame the loony wing of the GOP, forcing Bush to nominate even more anti-gay, racist assholes to the Supreme Court. Bush has said his favorite Justice is Scalia, which does not bode well for the nation.

Double standard bearer for the 21st century: Clarence Thomas.

Everyone in Texas, on your knees!!!!

(But only if you are gay, from my understanding you still can't legally engage in sodomy if you are straight. That will change soon I'm sure)

Nope -- all sodomy laws (gay or straight) are overturned by this decision. Everyone on your knees, everywhere!

And then put your nose on the floor.

And keep your eye on the sparrow!

yeah I have been wondering if pegging counted as sodomy, or if the idea of a chick plowing some guy's ass was so completely out of sink with the lawmaker's ideas of "what sick twisted people could do" that it was never thought of much less covered.

Sod all that (to coin a phrase), what I want to know is how people in those states did without oral sex!

"No darling, I can't taste your hairy pie we're over the state line!".

Frankly girls, give 'em hell.
