It is amazing how fast Houston’s city council got it together to ensure that a businessman could not follow his business model allowing the use of sex robots. Most Americans are not into that but do that give us the right to regulate it when it hurts no one? One would think that both the Left and the Right would be on board to just do nothing. Instead, they imposed their will.
Houston bans having sex with robots at shop planned for Houston
Democrats who believe in a woman’s right to choose using the constitutional privacy clause and Republicans who believe in absolute freedom with virtually no regulations should have reached intersectionality on this one allowing this business to open.
ABC13 reported the Houston story as follows.
The Houston City Council voted to change city rules that would effectively ban the use of sex robots in shops, as proposed by a Canadian businessman. The owner of Kinky Dolls sex robot shop in Toronto announced weeks ago that he would open a second shop in Houston. The store allows customers to buy and use robots for sex, according to the store’s website.
Last week, city officials say a store representative applied for an occupancy permit for a location in the 5500 block of Richmond. City inspectors went to the location, said work was ongoing without a permit and stopped the construction until permits could be approved.
So far, city officials haven’t issued any permits for construction of the store. That was followed by a hastily changed city ordinance that would not allow customers to touch a robot inside a store. That change was in front of the city council on Wednesday. City leaders re-wrote an ordinance dealing with “arcade” games, which in this case, the robot was classified as.
Maybe Houston leaders should be ensuring that the detention of children stripped from their parents does not get housed in facilities in Houston.
The government is also reportedly constructing a fourth “tender age” shelter, located in an abandoned warehouse in Houston, that would house up to 240 children.
Politicians can always be counted on to restrict the individual, read marijuana while allowing corporations to do as they please, read opioids. The businessperson who brought this industry to Houston should be allowed to market it. Some will oppose and some won’t. It is a freedom thing.
