Department of I-didn't-know-that

Oh Virginia...

Via Mother Jones, I learned today that sodomy and oral sex (ie gay sex, although it applies equally to straights) are still classified as a class 6 felony in the State of Virginia. The Supreme Court's Lawrence v Texas decision means that can't be enforced, but the statutes are still on the books, and all efforts to repeal have been blocked by social conservatives in the General Assembly. *sigh
