Weed is still illegal in states where sex with farm animals isn’t

In so many ways, laws are what keep society together. The rules that mark order. But they can also be deeply problematic. Consider that in some states bestiality is still legal, but smoking a joint isn’t.

That is the point of a new ad campaign from Jay-Z’s cannabis brand, Monogram. It uses black-and-white imagery and stark white text to point out the hypocrisy (and sometimes plain absurdity) of American drug policies.

The ad campaign is running in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Miami, and Washington, D.C., with plans to roll out in more cities in the next few weeks.

Sometimes, I wonder if a great education would be enough to countervail against the stupidity that keeps archaic laws on the books?

Baptist Church leader arrested for soliciting sex with dogs

Jerald “Jerry” Hill, the President and CEO of the Windermere Baptist Conference Center, was arrested Tuesday after posting an ad on Craigslist looking to find animals to have sex with. Not, like, a human who was an animal in bed or something but actual animals like a dog and one other kind of animal which, disturbingly, police have declined to identify. He is facing charges of “attempted unlawful sex with an animal and attempted animal abuse.”

Hill was arrested after the Boone County, Missouri, Sheriff’s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force got a tip about someone on Craigslist looking for animals to have sex with. Investigators posed as someone willing to pimp out their beloved pet and took Hill into custody when he went to meet them.

The Windermere Baptist Conference Center is now looking for Hill’s replacement, as they do not intend to keep Hill on after this.

I’ll bet the dude can find a bible verse that says it’s righteous behavior.

Yes, that’s a little smarmy; but, what else can you say? This ain’t any preacher fresh out of school just discovering his particular twist. He’s been around for a spell.

Long enough for someone close by to notice his furry fixation. Hypocrisy can only hide so much 🙂

Thanks, Mike

German legislators vote to make bestiality a misdemeanor


The only American politicians who consider this a high priority

Germany’s upper house of Parliament, the Bundesrat, voted Friday to criminalize for the first time “using an animal for personal sexual activities” and to punish offenders with fines of as much as $34,000. It was the final legislative hurdle for a bill the lower house passed in December.

The vote follows months of debate that pitted zoophiles against animal rights and protection advocates. Sexual mores seemed not to play a paramount role.

The ban, which carries only a misdemeanor charge, is an amendment to the country’s animal protection law, multifaceted legislation that, among other things, regulates animal testing and the sale of animals and prohibits animal abuse, including “using an animal for personal sexual activities or making them available to third parties for sexual activities and thereby forcing them to behave in ways that are inappropriate to their species.”

Zoophiles argue that their relationships with their pets, or “partners” as they prefer, are entirely mutual. Michael Kiok, a director of the advocacy group Zoophilic Engagement for Tolerance and Enlightenment, who now finds himself the de facto face of zoophilia in Germany, says animals are perfectly capable of expressing whether or not they desire sex.

Animal-rights groups have criticized men like Mr. Kiok, saying they put defenseless creatures in harm’s way.

The assorted and sundry tweaks of human sexuality never cease to amaze. Many of them are mirrored in other chordate species – and I doubt they get as excited, worried, philosophical or otherwise emotionally upset over discussion – or the acts themselves as do humans.

If something painful or too uncomfortable happens – well, you might get bit, I imagine.

Of course, outside of Texas sheepherders, I can’t imagine the question coming up in American politics. It’s that sophistication thingie, again.

Thanks, Honeyman
