As do I! I support all forms of consensual sodomy.

surprisingly last time I checked sodomy was illegal in minnesota, but it's been some years since I looked at the law.

I think it's also illegal to throw feathers in a back alley, and I believe that if you are driving on city streets, you are required to have someone walk 50 feet in front of your vehicle with a lantern so as not to scare the horses.

And two days later, there were fireworks to celebrate.
EDIT because I was wrong about Ventura's role in this. He first supported overturning the sodomy law, then changed his mind - so ultimately, he's a big weiner.

From sodomylaws.org

The sodomy ruling came in two parts from Hennepin County District Judge Delila Pierce. In May 2001, she ruled that the sodomy law was unconstitutional as applied to the plaintiffs before her. The State had 60 days to appeal that ruling, and did not.

The second ruling came on July 2, 2001, in which Judge Pierce certified the plaintiffs before her as a statewide class; the purported effect of this ruling is to allow her ruling to have statewide application. The State similarly had 60 days to appeal that decision, and did not.

The State has widely been seen as supportive of Judge Pierce’s rulings, though the State is in the position of theoretically having to defend its statutes.

The Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed an ethics complaint against Attorney General Mike Hatch on June 25, 2001, which had alleged he had violated professional ethics by failing to adequately defend the sodomy law; the ruling by Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz was entirely silent on the Court’s view of Judge Pierce’s rulings.
