Supremes Want A Little Alabama Vibrator Action

Metro article - Text operated vibrator, by Annie Mole @ FlickrI hesitate to post this yet, as the report remains unconfirmed.

Bug Girl at Skepchick heard that the Supreme Court of the United States may hear a case involving the ridiculous Alabama law banning the sale of vibrators, discussed a while back at SitPS on WordPress.

From Bug Girl’s article at Skepchick:

“The United States Supreme Court will review a Valley business owner’s case September 24. The issue: selling sex toys. A decision will come by October 1 whether the case will move forward or if the ban stands in Alabama.”

From the above linked SitPS article, from back in February:

According to a federal court decision announced yesterday (Valentine’s Day!), it’s perfectly fine for the state of Alabama to criminalize the sale of sex toys. Just to put this in context — 41 years after the Supreme Court decided it was unconstitutional to restrict the sale of condoms, the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit thinks it’s fine for Alabama to jail (up to one year for first violation) or fine (up to $50,000) anyone who gets caught selling as much as a dildo. (PDF of the statue is here.)

I’m rather pessimistic about the outcome of such a case, given the recent hostile take over of the SCotUS by the religious right.  As is noted in the comments at Skepchick, the court may rule in a surreal Ron Paul Bizarro-land way that this is a States’ Rights issue, to mask their real, religious motivation.

From whence came the art:

    Can’t believe you guys are so saddled with these fundie f*ckers. We have an event this month called “The Glorious Twelfth”.It refers to the opening of the grouse shooting season. I am not an advocate of gun crime, but these fundie fuckwits need removed from the food chain. Stat! (Still watching far too much ER for my own good, but George Clooney is just so edible!)

    Martyne,

    They’re like foot fungus, they just won’t go away, and their whole reason for being is to make everyone they touch miserable.

  5. Wow, that’s going to put a real damper on next May? National Masturbation Month?

    Ah…never would this happen in Canada, sorry to say…or happy to say?

    Hi PA,

    Never say never. These folks are spreading ignorance like it’s bubonic plague. They’ve most recently been exporting it to the UK.

    You’d think countries that old, with that much history and societal memory of the Dark Ages would be reluctant to repeat that misery, but a quick google of “Vardy Schools” will disabuse you of that notion.

    As for Masturbation May, they got a whole month for that??? Why didn’t I get the memo? I’ll be incommunicado for a whole month! (And probably in jail, as the bedroom gets rather monotonous after the first hundred hours.)

    🙂
