Despite that fact that anal sex is wildly popular amongst consenting adults, both gay and straight alike, Virginia’s attorney general (and presumptive GOP gubernatorial nominee) wants to keep it illegal because god. But jerk judges won’t let him have his way, hrrumph!:
Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli has filed a petition with the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond asking the full 15-judge court to reconsider a decision by a three-judge panel last month that overturned the state’s sodomy law.
The three-judge panel ruled 2-1 on March 12 that a section of Virginia’s “Crimes Against Nature” statute that outlaws sodomy between consenting adults, gay or straight, is unconstitutional based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2003 known as Lawrence v. Texas.
Don’t fret if you’re a fan of sodomy; Much to Cuccinelli’s chagrin, “ew, buttsex” is not a compelling reason to flout a ruling by the Supreme Court.
