Court bans man with low IQ from having sex
The Telegraph ^ | 04 Feb 2011 | By Martin Beckford

Posted on 02/06/2011 5:04:51 AM PST by jacknhoo

A man with a low IQ has been banned from having sex by a High Court judge who admitted the case raised questions about “civil liberties and personal autonomy”.

Under the judge's order, the man is now subject to 'close supervision' by the local authority to ensure he does not break the highly unusual order

The 41 year-old had been in a relationship with a man whom he lived with and told officials “it would make me feel happy” for it to continue.

But his local council decided his “vigorous sex drive” was inappropriate and that with an IQ of 48 and a “moderate” learning disability, he did not understand what he was doing.

A psychiatrist involved in the case even tried to prevent the man being given sex education, on the grounds that it would leave him “confused”.

Mr Justice Mostyn said the case was “legally, intellectually and morally” complex as sex is “one of the most basic human functions” and the court must “tread especially carefully” when the state tries to curtail it.

But he agreed that the man, known only as Alan, should not be allowed to have sex with anyone on the grounds that he did not have the mental capacity to understand the health risks associated with his actions.

Under the judge’s order, the man is now subject to “close supervision” by the local authority that provides his accommodation, in order to ensure he does not break the highly unusual order.

The judge concluded: “I therefore make a declaration that at the present time Alan does not have the capacity to consent to and engage in sexual relations.

“In such circumstances it is agreed that the present régime for Alan's supervision and for the prevention of future sexual activity is in his best interests.”

When I first read the title...I thought of Margaret Sanger, eugenicists, etc. Then, afer I read the first two paragraphs, I was mis-led. Then when I got to the end of the article, it turns out my first instincts were absolutely correct.

funny, you only have to watch the daily talk shows to know of lots of other people of low intelligence spitting out unwanted kids with multiple fathers like a factory, they treat having a child as some welfase bonus. Now if only we could make sure they did’nt get unwantedly and constantly pregnant.

Liberal Judges and Politicians with their mental disorders are a far greater menace to society than homosexual morons who sow fudge with their sperms.

There, all fixed.

But speaking of that, why not allow him Lewinskis? /it's not really sex> /Clinton>

Cheers!

Of course, but, again, only under "close supervision" (as in, "you better vote for this one if you know what's good for you").

The man he lives with,Kieron, is exploiting him and should be in jail. He’s a predator corrupting a weaker person. Alan is suffering under this condition, as displayed in his acting out to children.

Not much different than Obama. Obamas 2 points lower on the IQ, but has a severe learning disability (ignorance), but also does not understand what he is doing.

"Court bans man with low IQ from having sex"

Looking back, some of the freak shows I spent the night with, my IQ had to have been in the 40's.

To be fair, some of those ladies had wake up with an Obama WTF moment!

If he lived in Chicago, he'd get to be a U.S. Senator, and later, president of the U.S.

This judge has effectively equated low IQ with an inability to recognize right and wrong, or to understand the potential consequences of one’s actions. Since much of the behavior extolled by liberals is equally irresponsible and indulgent, does that mean that liberalism is, by definition, a condition of low IQs? And does that therefore mean that liberals should not be allowed to breed?

It’s a theory I’ve maintained for years, but it’s never had the weight of official jurisprudence behind it before ...

So: what’s the penalty if he does have sex? Put him in jail? That’ll keep him from having sex with men.

Or put his social worker/supervisor in jail? What a thankless job.

In Chiconago he would be paraded around and allowed to vote until voting was closed. As is done frequently. in that city, even the dead vote twice or more.
