Illogical Thoughts/things that make perfect sense # 8: Sex, Horses and Marijuana in the United States


While it has been said that a picture says a thousand words but I don’t agree. This picture belows says about 20 words perhaps.

Off to Do Some Research

When I first saw this image I said to myself: “MrMary this is bullshit. It can’t be right.”  Rather just sitting there and taking it deep I decided to do some research on my own and this is what I came up with:

Zoosexual activity (bestiality) is officially illegal in 37 states. Zoosexual activity is a misdemeanor in the 20 states listed below:

Alaska     Arkansas     California     Colorado     Connecticut     Florida     Iowa     Kansas     Louisiana     Maryland     Maine     Minnesota     Missouri     Nebraska     New York     North Dakota     Oregon     Pennsylvania     Utah     Wisconsin

Zoosexual activity is a felony in the 17 states listed below:

Arizona     Delaware     Georgia     Idaho     Illinois     Indiana     Massachusetts     Michigan     Mississippi     North Carolina    Oklahoma   Rhode Island     South Carolina     South Dakota     Tennessee     Virginia     Washington 

This leaves 13 states where I dunno what the fuck is going on

Wyoming     Vermont     New Hampshire     Montana     Nevada     New Mexico     Mississippi     Alabama     Texas     Kentucky     West Virginia     New Jersey     Ohio

That’s all the research I can stomach doing as it’s the weekend and I got shit to do.  But this raises an interesting question in my mind. How can we safe guard ourselves against the antediluvian mindsets from which the laws precipitate decades later. As society changes the laws hopefully change too. There are moments though like this one where we can afford to for a moment look backwards and wonder about the national phobia against homosexuality, or against the use of marijuana.

According to some sources in the United States there is “very little statutory, common law, and case-law establishing employment discrimination based upon sexual orientation as a legal wrong but there are definite  laws and legal precedents about having sex with animals. That’s what I don’t understand. I am not a lawyer and perhaps some information is off but it’s clear that there is an hypocrisy at work here. There are dire consequences for  this hypocrisy: in the United States, the FBI reported that 15.6% of hate crimes reported to police in 2004 were based on perceived sexual orientation. Sixty-one percent of these attacks were against gay men

ok that’s it

MrMary

BTW  – While writing this I went to get some water  and forgot to minimize the open window with the Google Search results for: What are the 23 states were zoophilia is legal. Now I am being asked when am I moving and what animals do I want as ‘pets’. Learn from my mistakes
