Dutch Politicians Want Bestiality Banned
Yahoo ^ | March 11th, 2004

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Two Dutch political parties called Wednesday for laws prohibiting sex with animals after a man suspected of having sex with a pony was set free.

Wearing nothing but a T-shirt, the man was arrested by police in Utrecht Monday after the pony's owner caught him by surprise in his stable.

"He was caught in the stable, busy with the pony, and was arrested for animal mistreatment," Mary Hallebeek, a prosecution spokeswoman said.

The prosecutor set him free because there was no evidence of a crime. Dutch law does not prohibit bestiality.

"There were no wounds or traces of violence. The man may have had sex with the animal, but there is no article in law which says this is liable to punishment," Hallebeek said.

Both List Pim Fortuyn and the Socialist Party called for an amendment to the penal code to make bestiality punishable.

"Sex with an animal is a far-reaching infringement of its physical integrity and the animal can never consent to it. It is pure maltreatment and should therefore be punishable," LPF member Joost Eerdmans said in parliament.

Brings new meaning to the term "My Little Pony." Here's the tough question for you gender benders - was it a boy pony or a gril pony?

I am sure the Dutch will use this statement in court by saying:
"I only had Sex with the Animal because they were in "Heat"
so it was "Consentual"

I don't know about that. I've known many unneutered dogs who would cheerfully consent.

Sounds like discrimination against the language-challenged to me. An animal can't consent simply because he cannot speak. Bigots!

When Sweden made kiddie porn illegal, they noticed a drastic increase in injuries caused to animals through sexual abuse. Of course, it's not illegal there either.

I think Princeton has a professor, Pete Singer, who is treated as a visionary, for advocating sex with animals.

I think nowadays
"they" want to refer to "it"
as Zoophilia . . .

It did not make any difference if it was a girl pony or a boy pony. It was equal rights. There was no descrimination.

Absolutely sick. Utterly disgusting. So gross. Yes, bestiality should definitely be illegal. A shame, however, that such a law has in fact become necessary. Sheesh, what's wrong with these sickos? Ick! These men are themselves animals, or worse.

First the came for my neighbor's Cockapoo and I did not speak up...because I was porking a setter.

Then they came for my uncle Mike's sheep...but I was spending my time with the poultry.

Then they came for my gerbil...and there was no one left to protest.

Beistiality is misunderstood due to years of fear and hate. We should open our arms to our animal loving brotheren and make sure they get the same rights as everyone else, including the right to marry.

Knowing the Dutch, the proposal has no chance. Anything sexual is fair game there. They would screw (and probably do) a garden hose.

The Netherlands is a cautionary tale regarding liberalism.

Someone, decades or generations ago, convinced the Dutch people that liberalism was good, and that pornography was liberal, so that turning your country into Hollywood & Vine was an expression of liberalism. Now, Holland is known for nothing else.

The Netherlands is the place degenerates go to score some smack, bugger a small boy, and when that becomes too tame, to defile Seabiscuit.

Man 'O War raped Barney Frank, thereby siring Jean Kerry. Or did Seabiscuit rape Harvey Milk? It's hard to keep these same-sex assignations straight.
