Privacy Bills in the Senate, a First Look: 58% of the Legislature is Ready to Get Out of Your Bedroom

WHAT: SB 13-011, Civil Unions
WHY: Because what goes on between consenting adults is their business
PPC stays away from social issues, but this is a privacy issue, so this is going to be brief. The state’s interest in regulating sexual relations is properly limited to preventing and punishing the use of force and to protecting those unable to give meaningful consent. Few things are so private or so fragile as sexual intimacy. This is an idea whose time has come.
It’s going to pass. The Governor will sign it. And some people will howl that civilization will end. Which it won’t.
You don’t have to like it. You have to accept that the force of law isn’t for you to enforce your every whim.
It’s not a matter of what sexual behavior the state does or does not approve. It’s a matter of limiting the state’s ability to interfere in the peaceful behavior of adults.
