Butt sex is legal in Missouri, illegal in Kansas only if you're gay

Mother Jones put together the above map to show which states still outlaw sodomy (aka butt sex). I'm sure you all will print it off to keep in your wallet, just in case you find yourself in Montana and want to know if anal is legal. (It's only illegal if you're gay in Big Sky Country.)

As you can see, Kansas has the same standard. But we already knew this.



Last month, Kansas' sackless leaders on the House Judiciary Committee -- Republicans and Democrats -- decided they'd leave the

statute in the Sunflower State's rule book, even though the U.S. Supreme Court

struck down a similar law in Texas in 2003.

Rep. Lance Kinzer (R-Olathe) said he didn't see a need to repeal the statute because it "wouldn't make a difference" because it's "unenforceable."

I'm sure it'd make a difference to the LGBT community. Besides, the law's existence is a wink and a nod that being gay is not OK in Kansas.
