Ted Cruz pivots to the middle
In a Mother Jones story earlier this week, it was revealed that Cruz defended a state ban on the sale of dildos as Texas’s solicitor general.
He's been conflicted on this for some time:
“There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship,” a brief co-authored by Cruz read.
Cruz, asked by WABC radio host Curtis Sliwa if he would ban “the sale of sexual toys, dildos, or anything that sexually stimulates you,” answered that he would not.
“Look, of course not, it’s a ridiculous question, and of course not,” Cruz told Sliwa on Friday. “What people do in their own private time with themselves is their own business and it’s none of government’s business.”
