Texas Taliban Law Overturned

You will all be happy to know that it is now legal to getting giggity with your sex toys in Texas. Feel those good vibrations! (H/T Andrew Sullivan)

The Federal Court wrote:

"Just as in Lawrence, the state here wants to use its laws to enforce a public moral code by restricting private intimate conduct," the appeals judges wrote. "The case is not about public sex. It is not about controlling commerce in sex. It is about controlling what people do in the privacy of their own homes because the state is morally opposed to a certain type of consensual private intimate conduct. This is an insufficient justification after Lawrence."
