For years Florida legislators have considered but failed to pass a bill that would make sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal a crime.

I live in florida, saying this is "an embarassment" is an understatement. All florida cares about anymore is tourist dollars.

I can't understand why any state could allow this, it's basically rape because an animal can't give permission for such an act. It's insane and something I could never understand and it has always angered me.

BTW...last year here in California I saw a news article that some BOZO put junk into some dog...I was appalled then, and the fact that this is happening in Flordia like gang busters makes me want to PUT A COLLAR ON EM, BED EM DOWN and let some wild animals have at em!

We have to stop this...PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

# 126, thank you Cher. I know Katie, and now they are "waffling" about the ban on importing wildlife to be hunted by dogs. It's all about "revenue" I guess, and it is pretty disheartening. I can't throw this state "under the bus", because I know how much effort goes into conservation of some species. But WHAT about THIS sick act is hard to pass a law about??!!

Signed and noted, thank you Cher. The law will probably not stop any offenders, but getting caught breaking that law will hopefully ensure that they get locked away in a psychiatric institution for a long, long time.

Eeeeew...I didn't know this was "technically" still legal in Florida! Noted, signed.

What's really disturbing is that people have to actually tell each other, "Oh, excuse me, PERVERT, but you can't do that, it's ANIMAL RAPE and ABUSE if you do and we'll punish you!"

WTF is wrong with people that they seem to have ZERO sense of propriety and will hurt/rape/abuse anything living thing around them and use it as a "toy" to amuse themselves if they think they can. WTF is *wrong* with humans?!

Thanks.

So many people seem to have an ethical blind spot when it comes to anything "sexual" (I put that in inverted commas as it's not really sex, it's abuse). I was talking to some guy online about the UK ban on extreme pornography, which includes bestial pornography. He was saying that people who object to that kind of porn are hypocrites because of all the animals killed for food... Now, I don't eat meat and I campaign against factory farming, but I can't see why he thought that being killed and eaten would be as bad as being kept as a sex slave for the rest of your life. If I was forced to choose I'd walk to the slaughterhouse myself!

Why is it so difficult for some people to see that this issue is not about bestiality being "icky", it's about consent? A sentient being that cannot consent to sexual activity must not be made to experience it. Bestiality is as bad as rape of a human, because of the lack of consent, although even that's not treated as seriously as it should be. Ugh.

Anyway, thanks again Cher, for the opportunity to take action.

In Florida, if you're gay, you are prohibited from adopting a child - but, hey - all those gay-bashing red-necked farmers in Florida can go out to the barnyard and just have themselves a good ol' time! I guess this is where Carnation's Contented Cows come from!!!
