Letter: Sodomy Laws Arent Limited to Homosexual Acts
August 16, 1998
P. O. Box 2138,Charlotte, NC 28233
Homosexuality is not a felony. It is not illegal to be a homosexual in this state. The
sodomy laws he refers to apply to everyone, male, female, gay and straight. Anal and oral
sex are illegal in North Carolina no matter who performs them or in what combination,
including married heterosexuals.
Since no one bothered to find out if the mom in the Pulliam case had engaged in
either act and was therefore a felon, not just a woman who had deserted her children, we
can safely assume the judgment that came from that trial was indeed based on speculation
of conduct, as The Observer editorial surmised.
