    I find it disgusting that this is a misdemeanor. It ought to be punished by imprisonment.
    It's just a raw photo taken by a juvenile delinquent: relax.

    Ludicrous. A vibrator doesn't commit acts all by itself.

    The only difference if he did it to you would be that it would be a sexual assault instead of simply an indecent act.

    The act is what it is without regard to whether it was committed upon a person or an object.
    Now the statue is a human female or male?

    Was it offended? Mortified? The damned thing gets rained on and crapped on by the birds.

    Once again, the act is what it is without regard to whether it was committed upon a person or an object.

    The only difference, as I just said in the reply to Ikari, is that if it's committed upon a person then it becomes assault.

    Most likely harassment, though the real difference is that I'm a human and the statue is not. But if you want to advocate the guns of government for pretend sex...so be it. Just not all that rational.

    Well, somebody took the picture so I'm pretty sure someone else was there. I don't know if there were more "somebody's" but it looks like it was in broad daylight and in a public place.

    And I'm not really sure whether a "sexual act" with a statue actually counts as a crime. If not actually having sex with an inanimate object is a crime, surely we're going to have to end the sex toy industry.
    Sex toys are banned in several states. The Supreme Court has refused to hear appeals of those laws.
