Gay Rallies or Protests

    Okay..., we've heard, and most of us have experienced, the human rights violations indicated in the postings. I wonder, "Could RealJock organize a protest, or a march?" Is there anyone willing to take that step? Do you think a protest or rally or revolution is in the future of gay rights, or the cause of gay rights?

    And..., whatever became of the male couple in Texas who were arrested for violating existing sodomy laws, in the privacy of their own home? I have not learned what the ruling was, but I assume that jail or prison sentences was/were not necessary or called for. But, then again, I'm not a judge. (Was it the "Bender" case?) Or, was that something else? I'll have to do some research, some more research...more, did I say, more--what? Yes, I did: More research! Damn! Does it ever end?

    Eh...anyway, I wonder if someone lead a movement in this country, how many people on Real Jock would participate? Then, how many "bisexual" men, or "str8" white men (for example) on the "DL," how many of those cam shoppers would rally behind an openly gay male, or the gay movement. The same camming audience "sneaks a peak" betwixt and between the daylight and the twilight hours: How many of those "men" for example, would throw stones in the streets or get in line? Someone give me hope that the odds would be in our favor!

    hm... I don't know the specific case you are talking about. But state sodomy laws were struck down by the supreme court in 2003. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy_law#United_States

    But perhaps the case you are referring to involved something other than sodomy (and really, what good crime doesn't involve at least a little butt luvin')

    The case was Lawrence v. Texas. Essentially it said that sodomy laws are unconstitutional invasions of private acts between consenting individuals. It overturned the earlier decision Bowers v. Hardwick in very stark language saying that Bowers "was wrong then and is wrong now."

    I believe that either Lawrence or his partner has since died.
