Tacky but not Illegal

I can’t imagine he’s going to get re-elected, but that’s because he probably is too embarrassed to be seen anymore. On twitter, someone I follow (who shall remain nameless as it’s a private account) retweeted this:

And is basically wondering why this story hasn’t been brought up more in the news as much as Akin’s abominable stupidity.

Simple answer: because nothing illegal happened.

Look, you may be uncomfortable with gay sex, but there’s really nothing beyond the tacky location and possibility of public sex that makes this anything but a private matter. Now, sex in public is wrong, so say so many people, but I’ve been to New Orleans, and I can tell you, there’s plenty of it happening, both straight and gay. Get a box of Lincoln Logs, build a bridge and get over it.

You may not like it. You may not like sex. I don’t know what your issue is, but it’s off-base and you need to get help if you think that there’s truly anything wrong with this. Just because you don’t want to see it, and trust me, I don’t want to really see it either, doesn’t mean it’s wrong and people should be up in arms about it. Get a grip.

  1. 50-something man and 17 year old boy. Can we say statutory rape? It’s not about gay – it is about under-age.
