I also want legislation against women wearing clothing that shows their ankles. Those sexy ankles, they're responsible for all the debauchery in the world.

Why not? If it's good enough for the gays, its good enough for the straights.

I think we can safely navigate through the unwashed masses for the appreciation of all those who shouldn't be clothed. And if not, the sacrifice would be worth it.

Remember this the next time you see furor over repealing "sodomy" laws. Everytime it comes up to remove the old anti-gay statutes from the books, the argument is "why waste time on this... no one will ever prosecute it anyway".

Please. We're only 2-3 election cycles away from a groundswell christian authority. Not saying it WILL happen, just that it's possible. And of course, their excuse will be "see? It's already on the books, and has been for 100 years! It's our tradition!"

Thanks, random concerned citizen, for alerting us to the fact that we still had this statute on the books. We'd totally forgotten that we'd been meaning to clean that up, but just didn't get around to it for so long that we forgot. I mean, it's not like we've been using it.

Anyhow, don't worry, we'll strike it down next legislative session, for real this time.

In other news, Florida still has a law against living in sin. Also criminal offenses: living in open adultery, any "unnatural and lascivious act" (even private), and not telling your parents if you're "sexted".

yep, that is about it. They can be usefl for selective enforcement of people you don't like.


I would bet that this is a law that was functionally overturned/considered to be unconstitutional. the legislature never took it off the books, despite the fact that it cannot be enforced.

to me, it's similar to the states that still outlaw sodomy and oral sex... thanks to texas v. loving (i think, could be wrong), all of those laws are unconstitutional. legislatures forget about them and never revoke them.

most states have groups of lawyers who advise the legislature. they often beg for the old, bad laws to be removed... but, no one wants to be the congressman to be in support of the sodomy law or the bj law.

for example, some group of legislatures recently got made fun of for taking off a anti-animal sex law (because the issue was properly dealt with in another area of law). they all got accused of being in support of animal sex (jokingly).

either way, no one wants to open the political bag to start talking about sex laws that aren't good law anyways.

Wonder if there's an old law discriminating against foreigners still on the books. "Takahashi" don't sound very 'murrican to me. Maybe her ancestors violated some interracial law in the past.
 
2012-10-15 03:00:00 PM  
This is actually why laws that aren't enforced need to be taken off the books. The police won't enforce this one, but they've been know to selectively enforce open container laws and vagrancy laws and a slew of traffic laws when they need a pretext to arrest someone. Leaving them on the books creates opportunity for abuse.

IF IT IS AGAINST THE LAW elected officials (of all people) should not do it. Plain and simple.
