Wow, the ignorance in this place truly is astounding. How many people here actually should be under 24hour care?
Both were repealed because both were connected. This was a common tactic to get the bans through in the first place, equating homosexuality to bestiality. It was a right-wing Christian propaganda campaign to do that and discredit and insult wherever possible.
No one is seriously suggesting that soldiers can now screw animals, and to even allude that this is the case shows how completely idiotic and brain dead so many right-wing nut cases are!
Your rant sounds more like a defence for "anel sex" then how stupid we are not to have read the bill and understood it the way you have.

Wow.... the irony here is great.
Everyone is always giving crap to the senate and congress for passing bills they don't bother reading. It seems about 90% of the people in this thread are guilty of pretty much the same thing, judging a bill without actually looking at it! Now you know why the government is so screwed up, because they are people just like you.
If most of the people in this thread had their way, based on their laziness in reading the bill, oral and anal sex would still be illegal. THAT is the point of this bill, to remove the restriction on anal and oral sex... because..... well because it's nobody's damn business what kind of sexual relations you are having.
It looks like nearly everyone in this thread needs this spoon fed to them, or else they will fall victim to sensationalism and ignorance.
First of all, they aren't passing some new bill that says "people will now be able to engage in sex with animals" They are REPEALING an older bill that prohibited such things.
Second of all, the original bill was NOT only about bestiality, it was also about sodomy (oral and anal sex) The fact that the original law makers would sling together bestiality and sodomy is ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with sodomy, adults don't have to explain their choice of sexual methods to anyone, sure as hell not the law.
So, what is actually happening, is that they are removing the restriction on anal and oral sex. That's the point here, the only reason bestiality became involved is because the original law makers combined bestiality and sodomy into one ban. I seriously doubt the bestiality thing had ANYTHING to do with this being repealed.
It's like if I make a law that makes eating cheese sandwiches illegal, but the same bill also made it illegal to poop on your roof.
Some years later, someone comes along and says "hey, cheese sandwiches shouldn't be illegal, lets repeal that law"
Then a bunch of idiots start carrying on about them legalizing roof pooping, Get it? That's exactly what's going on in this thread.
Some people are so easily manipulated....

We can kill and eat them, we can test them with drugs and pharmaceuticals, we cantake their fur and hormones, so why can't we have sex with them.
I can't imagine ever wanting to, but I. Don't see any logical reason to make it illegal.
