    Default Texas GOP Platform: Criminalize Gay Marriage and Ban Sodomy

    Texas GOP platform: criminalize gay marriage and ban sodomy, outlaw strip clubs and pornography

    I think Texas is where pure concentrated idiocy goes to stagnate and solidify in the form of people. Not real people, though... just phantasms made up of all the worst ideas you've ever had. I say we reapply all of the Mexican American border fences to Texas so the dumbness doesn't slosh out anymore. No offense to intelligent Texans... but you're in the quarantine zone and there might be no hope for you.

    The south-west is making an interesting exhibit out of itself. It's giving the country, and I guess really the whole world, and idea of what sort of backward, degenerate, dystopia the modern Republican party has in mind for this nation.

    Sodomy laws seem really stupid. The only way to properly enforce them would be to turn the entire place into a serveillance state. A spy camera in every bedroom! We're just making sure your sex is legal! Hurr hurr hurr.

    Taking shots at Texas conservatism is like shooting fish in a barrel or trying to find an adulterous politician...

    Oh, of course not. Don't you know the Republican party hates big government?

    It looks to me like it isn't staying in Texas. But my perception may be incorrect, of course.

    The scary thing to me is that it's not just being laughed at.

    Lots of crap going on. Some guy running up north had as part of his platform wanting to prevent transpeople from officially changing their gender regardless of what their bodies look like or function as, and refuse to let them use the bathrooms. What, now we're going to card EVERYONE going into restrooms? Or are we just going to profile people by appearance, so the only the visually incongruent people are harrassed?

    And for what reason? Why not just keep your nose out of business that has nothing to do with you and isn't any of your business?

    It gets old.

    Another reason to be embarrassed to be a Texan.

    Texas is California's balance, lol. Ridiculously restrictive social atmosphere and good financial state.

    Things such as the sodomy idea really can't be taken seriously, though. Everyone knows that it can't and won't be enforced. They just put it in there to show that they don't like it. I'm sure that they are also well aware that they will never be able to pass any kind of really stringent legislation in that regard. It's just to impress their constituents.

    They're so shiny!

    So here's a question: How exactly do you convict someone for "committing" sodomy... I mean, J Walking isn't hardly payed attention to, yet that's life threatening. Commit sodomy and you get 15 year prison sentence, but it's not life threatening unless your partner has a terminal STD/HIV. It makes sense to them only because it's backwards.

    I mean, prostitution's one thing because it's organized crime, thus easy to trace and comb out. But sodomy or oral sex between two consenting adults is spontaneous and private. There's no indicators of committing the crime like income, stashed drugs, or anything...
