I understand that bestiality is illegal in some states. But can someone tell me why one is tolerated and the other condemned? I mean they are both insanely disgusting acts.


Forgetting that animals can't sign contracts?

re: Producer of pornographic fetish films gets 4 years in prison


"and all I'm saying is that if you're going to have a litany of exceptions, then put them in the damn constitution/amendment."

A seemingly reasonable request, but I suggest:

Nooooo! By all means, do NOT do this. This is bad governement as exemplified in the mess that is the Louisiana state Constitution and its multitude of amendments voted on by a mostly uninformed electorate. One of the genius features of the republican form of representative democracy is that it avoids such problems. Of course, this is so just my opinion, man, but it is an opinion shared by many of the Framers.

A final point: The obscenity construct is of judicial crafting and represents an attempt to define the boundaries of First Amendment protections that were never understood to be literal or absolute. I would prefer for the judiciary to come up with a better construct, over time, than deal with an Amendment process that could make things worse. For example, what if the amendment clarified the First Amendment by protecting only political speech such that it became crystal clear that artistic speech was not protected at all? We may not be able to define its contours with precision but we still have a constitutional protection of speech that is pretty robust and I would hate to endanger it.

Can you expand on this point? Does this mean you are in favor of contractual agreements for using animals as labor? Do I need to have an "Ownership Agreement" with my dog?

I also don't need a signed Contract to engage sexually with another person (although our society is trending towards the necessity of this).

(not flaming, genuinely interested in your point)
