This just in, Virginia is definitely NOT for lovers! Not good lovers anyway.

"About this big. Why do you ask?"
Courtesy of Slate:  

Ken Cuccinelli wants to keep kids safe from sexual predators by banning oral and anal sex—between consenting adults. On a website his campaign just launched, Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, paints himself as the only real protector of children, because of his efforts as Virginia attorney general to reinstate a law banning all naked fun-time acts besides vaginal intercourse. 

Cuccinelli's claim is that only by reinstating the Crimes Against Nature law, which Cuccinelli dishonestly calls the "Anti-Child Predators Law," can the state of Virginia prosecute people who rape children. Never mind that rape is already illegal, child molestation is already illegal, and statutory rape is already illegal. His website says that a full 90 sexual predators may come off the sex offenders registry (the site is vague on how) if oral and anal sex isn't banned outright for everyone, a claim that hopefully will remind voters that enforcing such a law would mean that adults having consensual sex in their bedrooms could become "sex offenders" if they're caught. 

That is absolutely insane.  That is like attempting to curtail drunk driving by outlawing the use of fifth gear.

Like the article says it is ALREADY illegal to have sex with minors so all he would be doing is making sex for adults really boring.

But of course we know the REAL focus of this law. Teh gays.

You see in Cuccinelli's view of reality he believes that making oral and anal sex against the law, a law by the way that he could NEVER enforce, he can stop those "homosectuals" from getting their freak on and possibly making little baby queers. (Oh yeah, he undoubtedly thinks that gays are produced from gay sex.)

All I have to say is that if this law WERE to pass then Virginia would have to change it's motto from "Virginia, a place for lovers" to:

    Why do ass-hats like Cuccineli keep getting elected? He is one in a long line of repellent, misguided, bigoted and abhorrent folk concerned with the sexual behaviors of consenting adults in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

    What's next? Anti-masturbation statutes? Artificial insemination for any and all pregnancies to legally married heterosexual couples only, with sperm to be taken from the male while under sedation so as to avoid any pleasure?

      Republicans keep trying to take us BACKWARDS...didn't we used to have "anti-sodomy" laws on the books?
      Oh and remember the R Gov who's GF was his horse? What about Animal Sodomy? Oh and what about "less government" BS? They want "Bedroom" laws again? Fuck them all. I'm so sick of these assholes.

  3. Well, with that little caption, I couldn't help remembering this scene from the movie Evolution:

    Nurse Tate: I'll get the lubricant...
    Dr. Paulson: No time for lubricant!
    Harry Block: There's ALWAYS time for lubricant!

  4. There is no way whatsoever to enforce these statutes. But Lawdamercy, they can certainly spend endless hours describing, thinking about, speculating on, philosophizing about, dwelling on, pondering, and of course, "researching" the issue on the internet, now can't they?

    Things that make you go hmm.

    2. Actually, they did have this law on the books in Georgia, and they DID enforce it. A woman used it against her husband who she wanted to divorce so she could get their kids.

      That's right. Consentual, oral sex, between a married couple, both over 21 years of age.

      This happened in 1988. The man's name is James David Moseley. He was a honorably discharged Navy veteran with a commendation for saving the life of another Navy air crewman.

      Moseley was sentenced to five years; the Board of Pardons and Paroles later ruled that he had to serve 30 months. At the same time it was releasing 3000 felons--including robbers and murderers--because of jail overcrowding, the state found a place for Moseley.

      In September, a judge overturned Moseley’s conviction, in effect, saying the statute did not apply to married heterosexuals. Moseley gained his freedom--after 19 months in jail.

      It ruined his life.

      Here is some more information on the sodomy laws and people who have been arrested for it.

    4. He admitted to giving her oral sex when he was asked. It was 1988. He never thought anything like this would happen. They were married.

      I remember when this case happened. A lot of people were shocked over it.

    I'll have to check the citation, but the Supreme Court of the United States allowed sodomy as legal in quite recent times: Lawrence v. Texas, I think it was called.
    Griswold v. Connecticut in the mid-60s ushered in the use of contraceptive (previously against the law!) by make some acts in the bedroom PRIVATE and beyond the reach of the law.

    I'll have to do some more research, but those are two huge Supreme Court decisions that basically refused to allow politicians to control the behavior of consenting adults. Is he going to outlaw these practices between married couples -- heterosexual married couples?
    For children, of course, as Gryphen points out, there are already many laws on the books that make sexual acts against them illegal. No new laws are needed.

    Damn!

    I would have been arrested 3 times in the last two days with my boyfriend. And it would have been worth it.

    ** Would have been more, but we're still experimenting (dating two months).

    Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003),[1] is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court. In the 6–3 ruling, the Court struck down the sodomy law in Texas and, by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in thirteen other states, making same-sex sexual activity legal in every U.S. state and territory. The Court overturned its previous ruling on the same issue in the 1986 case Bowers v. Hardwick, where it upheld a challenged Georgia statute and did not find a constitutional protection of sexual privacy.
    Lawrence explicitly overruled Bowers, holding that it had viewed the liberty interest too narrowly. The Court held that intimate consensual sexual conduct was part of the liberty protected by substantive due process under the Fourteenth Amendment. Lawrence invalidated similar laws throughout the United States that criminalized sodomy between consenting adults acting in private, whatever the sex of the participants.[2]

    I slightly disagree with you Gryphen.

    The REAL focus is to punish non-evangelical Christians.

    He is Christian Taliban, wanting to enforce by threat of jail time his own religion based ideals on other citizens.

    In other words, he is EXPRESSLY violating the terms of the 1st Amendment, which states that Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion.

    I cannot imagine a judge trying to hold court while the prosecuting attorney says, "Yes, your honor, this MARRIED COUPLE decided to commit the felony of oral sex, but the shade was up , and a neighbor saw them "

    SO what's the penalty for oral sex, a year in jail?

    Before you know it, the Christian Taliban will start marketing chastity belts and burkas for their women, and hire bodyguards to escort them to the grocery store.

    Yep, the Cooch is trying to make this the anti-sodomy, anti-blow job election curse he's basically for nothing else to run on. He thinks this will motivate his base and distract from his and current gov McDonnell's ever mounting ethics probe, and federal investigations. Yeah, not so much.

    Cooch is one of those über Catholic home skoolin, seven kids havin raging homophobes like Rick Santorum whose unnatural obsession with other people's sex lives leads to to believe he is a self hating closet case. Fits the profile to a tee. If you're not up on the current governors super grifting scandal and his family's greediness , I suggest you catch up at the excellent progressive blog www.BlueVirginia.us

    McDonnell puts Palin and her family to shame in the Republican grifting Olympics.

    Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau rightly said:-
    “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation. I think that what’s done in private between adults doesn't concern the Criminal Code.”

    Also in l969, under Trudeau's leadership, Canada passed Bill C-150 – the Criminal Law Amendment Act, decriminalizing homosexual acts for consenting Canadians over the age of 21.

    Why is it that in 2013 the United States, supposedly a leader in all things, looks so regressive to the rest of the world?

      Because the U.S. only THINKS it's a leader in all things. The rest of us know better, and there are plenty of stats to prove it -- one of them being about healthcare and health outcomes.

      By the way, I feel VERY sorry for this idiot's wife, AND for the people in Virginia.

    I dunno. Something about his face says "too much androgen". Or maybe "too high a percentage of Neanderthal genes". It's like there should be a much more prominent brow ridge on that oddly sculpted face.

    How can laws like this fit into a philosophy of less government regulation? How can legislators vote for a law that cannot be enforced? What kind of evidence would be allowed in a court room that would result in a conviction? This might as well be a "smoker" with legislators being paid to attend.

      Brought to you by the same party that voted to repeal Obamacare 38 times.

      They're the same people who use the Bible to support their views, except when the Bible contradicts their views or requires them to do something they don't want to do (they just ignore those pesky inconvenient parts).

      They're the same people who think the Constitution starts and stops with the 2nd Amendment (and occasionally the 1st but ONLY if applies to their particular brand of Christianity).

  20. So how exactly does this sanctimonious ass hat running for Governor of Virginia propose to enforce this medieval law?
    Mandatory spycams in every bedroom and bathroom within every home in the state?

    It would appear that Cuccinelli missed his calling.
    Deacon of the Westboro Baptist Church would be a better fit for his brand of bigotry.
