Apparently they didn't get the memo: The Washington Blade reports that Virginia courts are still prosecuting individuals for violating sodomy laws. Yet the prosecutions appear to be constitutional, because the law in question concerns soliciting sodomy. This seems unfair. What good is the right to sodomize in the privacy of your home if you don't know who to invite there?
A defense attorney fights for the right to ask about partying: "The sodomy act itself has to occur in a public space in order for it to be prosecuted. . . If I want to say, 'Would you like to have sodomy?' in the middle of a shopping mall, well, that cannot be prosecuted." Seems a little formal to us, tho.
