"Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas any longer!"

Folks, get with the program.

Many Conservatives argued that this was sign of activism. Actually, it is not. It is to correct what is wrong with the law. The law was merely unconstitutional. Conservatives will accuse the Liberals for doing the right thing in the first place.

In Kansas, if a 18 years old boy had a consensual sex with 14 years old girl, he'd be punished as much as 15 months in the jail. But in this situation, 18 years old boy performed a blowjob on 14 years old boy, he got 17 years for the blowjob! Let's be realistic about this -- is this fair for everyone else? Of course not.

That is why the Kansas Supreme Court finally said that it was unconstitutional to do that. But a gay man already served 5 years in the prison.

Let's sit back and watch how the Conservatives and Republicans will argue that this boy deserved 17 years instead of 15 months.
