For a long time I had a suspicion that the ridiculous and totally disproportionate anti-gay religious hysteria was only the beginning in a clear
conspiracy to ultimately control the lives of everybody according to a fascist religious dogma.
After all, heterosexuality came from a long church history that decided how even married couples could consummate their relationships, and even on
Colonial bans on oral sex in some African countries remain until this day.
However, as Western culture moved away from regulating heterosexual couples (instead moving its focus on "deviant" identities) oral sex was deemed
In fact, some "pro-virginity until marriage" movements implicitly encouraged it, since it left reproductive virginity untouched.
It's been quite clear however that some conservative religious groups have slowly but surely been broadening their scope of desired social control.
Westboro is one example of a group that started with homophobic campaigns, but who now also want to legislate against divorce, re-marriage and
"sinful" heterosexual behavior.
Now it seems there is some political support for criminalizing oral sex and anal sex, both for homosexuals and heterosexuals.
These may be radical templates for now, but there's little doubt that once given power these groups will take society right back to the dark ages, or
the Old Testament (where virgins who were raped had to marry their rapists).
Of course every moral panic goes with a health risk, and in this case it is HPV that may cause oral and throat cancers if one is infected by somebody
with the virus.
It may also cause other cancers, especially cancer of the cervix in women, so it makes me wonder why any sex should then be legal.
On the one hand I think its ridiculous to even imagine that one could police this, but on the other it is at least consistent in targeting all people,
and not just gay and lesbian people.
Would you support this, and what do think the penalty should be?
Should it differ between protected and unprotected sex?
In a religious sense, is there even such a thing as "protected sex"?
Wouldn't it leave women exposed to even more riskier sex as the only legal option?
It may sound ridiculous now, but it is surely not the last we'll hear about this.
The religious fascists want full surveillance and control of everybody's private lives.
It’s not a shocker that the controversial conservative Christian spokesman for the American Family Association, radio host Bryan Fischer, is
backing up Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, calling for banning oral sex as well as anal sex between consenting adults -- among
heterosexuals as well as homosexuals -- claiming the practices allow for the spread of diseases. But dragging Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky into
this, and suggesting speeding tickets be issued to those who engage in oral sex, are eyebrow-raising even for Fischer.
