Narrow-Minded Sexophobes!

Those narrow-minded social conservatives in Illinois are trying to criminalize another form of sexual expression!  From the February 18, 2012 St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
ALTON • Spurred by cases in which bodies of overdose victims were moved to thwart investigations, Illinois state Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, is sponsoring a bill to make unauthorized movement of a corpse a felony.
It also would criminalize something that even Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn thought was already illegal — having sex with the dead.
Ask yourself: does the dead person care?  They're dead.  They don't know what is happening to them.  Why should we deny the full sexual expression of the living just because of narrow-minded, Judeo-Christian values?  It doesn't hurt anyone, does it?  Just more of the same narrow-minded thinking that modern, progressive sorts decrying Rick Santorum's social conservativism should find abhorrent. Admit it: people get all negative about necrophilia because they think it's icky, and all right-thinking sorts know that icky isn't a valid reason to disapprove of homosexuality, so it certainly isn't a valid reason to disapprove of this.

This is, by far, the stupidest blog post I've read in about 6 months.

In wisconsin in 2006, there was a case of a beautiful young blonde who died of massive head trauma in a motorcycle accident. three young men, who frankly looked like the only way they'd ever "get any" would involve either a dead woman, paying for it, or "roofies" decided that they just HAD to have the poor departed lass, so they dug up her grave and tried (without success) to open the concrete burial vault before they were apprehended, with condoms in hand, by one of the local sheriff deputies when he saw unusual lights in the graveyard and went to investigate...and the DA tried to charge them with attempted third-degree sexual assault, attempted criminal damage to a cemetery and attempted misdemeanor theft. only the last two charges stuck.

link to where the appeals court overturned the sexual assault because there is no law against necrophilia.

Currently, the undead are in fashion. The biggest example are vampires from Buffy and Twilight.

Heck, there is currently a movie in production called "Warm Bodies" that will be about zombie romance.

If it is popular, people will do it.
