The Fourteenth Amendment Right to Sex Toys

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has recognized Texans’ Fourteenth Amendment right to use (and therefore to buy) dildos:

Just as in Lawrence, the State here wants to use its laws to enforce a public moral code by restricting private intimate conduct. The case is not about public sex. It is not about controlling commerce in sex. It is about controlling what people do in the privacy of their own homes because the State is morally opposed to a certain type of consensual private intimate conduct. This is an insufficient justification for the statute after Lawrence.

As one who thinks that the word “moral” belongs nowhere near the words “the State”, I have to say, “bravo!”

  1. Yet another post where I need to pick between “envious” or “jealous”.

    Nah, this would be too easy. But at least I now know what to get you for your birthday!

  2. And it’s about damn time too!

    If Texans are happy to put a dildo in the Oval Office then they will be surely delighted that they can now legally insert one in their own Oval Orrifice’s!
