Semantic Nits

Before we get off into the deep end, I think it ought to be clear that I don't see the recent SC decision over Texas sodomy laws to be a blow for 'gay rights'. There's really no such thing. There is nothing that homosexuals need or desire that the rest of us don't. It's only flavor. The right to be free of state intrusions into one's private sex life seems to be, very simply, a right of all adults. I'd say it falls more squarely in human rights than civil rights, but less so than certain other First Amendment rights. The right to sexual privacy is fundamental and any government that would infringe on such rights is very near to being terroristic.
