My satirical entry was not meant to titillate, but to point out the absurdity and injustice of a law seeking to prevent people privately seeking gratification with appliances designed for that purpose, or selling such toys unless one pretends they are "educational models".
Texas law is, in other words, sticking its proverbial nose where it doesn’t belong. This came to my attention when I heard that a store clerk in Lubbock was arrested under this law. That she could be convicted as a criminal for doing her job, selling devices which are not only harmless but beneficial, devices which are no doubt legal in the other 49 states and most of the world, and which have been used ever since their invention in ancient Greece on the island of Lesbos, is unjust in the extreme.
Though I don’t currently live in Texas, I have in the past. I found the people, especially the women, to be friendly, intelligent, open minded, and not at all repressed. Why they would allow their legislators to make a law that belongs to the Dark Ages I do not understand.
Texans, write your state congress. And Yahoo, your filter is too sensitive. This is still America, you know.
