We Are All Sodomites Now

Maybe I should have been explicit. I wrote:

Homosexual sodomy was always subjected to more scrutiny and disparagement than heterosexual sodomy, even when sodomy became - as it did in the 1960s with the advent of the pill - the overwhelming sexual practice of the straight.

By sodomy, I mean the technical term of non-procreative intercourse. That includes the use of condoms, the pill, oral sex and butt-fuckery. That was what the church meant when it invented the entire category. We are all sodomites now. I wrote a review essay in 2003 for The New Republic with that very title on the history of sodomy.
