Bestiality Law? Florida Takes Another Shot At Passing Bill
As everyone who has ever reported this story will tell you, "Florida is one of only a dozen or so states that don't have a law against bestiality on the books." So, Democratic State Senator Nan Rich is taking her second shot at getting a law passed that would criminalize this sort of thing. This past Monday, the State Senate, by unanimous vote, passed a law that would make this sort of thing "a first-degree misdemeanor... with a penalty of up to a year in jail." It now goes to the State House, where a similar measure spurred by Rich and passed by the Florida State Senate last year failed to pass, despite the fact that it was pretty clear about how it was about people in Florida copulating with dogs and goats and whatnot
I'll be honest. This is not a law I would think anyone would really like, need to debate that much. Should you or should you not have sex with Fluffy the Hamster or Polly the Pig? That is not what I'd call a difficult question, okay?

From comments: It has been three years since the descent of Glorious-
Heavensent-Infant-Who-Walks-In-Grace. Three years since the Eyes, ever-watching. We creep between its soft fleshy toes and pray, and when prayer is not enough we weep. For the People's Republic is no more. We are the Infant-Ruled and the Infant-Born, and we live in the shadow of the Eyes, ever-watching.
I am not saying this is how skynet started; skynet isn't this scary. I don't even want to know what happens to small villages if diapers aren't changed in time.
At Last, A Family Movie About Children Going to Hell which the only reason I am posting this, besides the sheer curiosity about Lizzie Borden teaching Home Economics, is a comment that yet again wonders why kids just can't read like, the fantasy classics made famous by Lord of The Rings and Dante's Inferno and why create dumbed-down versions?
My argument: because classics are classics because they are old and stylistically sometimes pretty goddamn boring.
Long version is like, five pages long and I removed it because apparently, I am surprisingly adamant on like, why literacy is not the same as reading and teaching one does not bestow understanding the second with an intersection into classism in literature, which is just kind of weirdly unsettling to read now. With anecdotes, even.
I will leave with this--kid's version of Moby Dick? Not better than the long version, but so much shorter.
