Ohio Democrat Makes Bestiality Jokes; Humane Society Official Not Amused

Posted on | December 10, 2012 | 25 Comments

In Ohio, believe it or not, it’s legal to sodomize your dog. Or fellate your horse, or otherwise have carnal knowledge of whatever species might arouse your perverse erotic interest. Some members of the Ohio legislature want to pass a law to outlaw bestiality, and the leader of the state’s House Democrats decided to make a few “humorous” remarks about the subject:

“I was appalled,” said [Missy] Houghton, an agent with the Richland County Humane Society. “I do not think this is something that should be laughed at or made into a joke. To me, this bill is a no-brainer that should have been passed. We are one of the few states that do not have a law against bestiality.”

Indeed, and some Republicans suspect that Ohio Democrats are secretly beholden to the North American Man-Dog Love Association. But why bring Sherrod Brown into this? The article in the Manfield News-Journal recounts efforts to apprehend one such deviant:

Peter Bower, 32, was sentenced to community service and two years probation after authorities discovered a history of sexual activity with his 3-year-old shepherd mix, Aurora.
Authorities said previous investigations revealed the dog was not the only animal Bower abused. He posted photos and stories of his encounters with other dogs and a horse on multiple bestiality websites.
A year later, Bower was arrested again and later found guilty of violating his probation after an ad was discovered at offering his dog-sitting services.

Wanna bet Peter Bower is a registered Democrat?

    Who are you to criticize Bower’s – or anyone’s! – lifestyle choice!!!

    A man’s got needs and he should be able to satisfy them however he chooses to. It’s not the state’s business to get involved!

    anyone who has grown up on a farm knows that there is nothing very unusual about sexual contact with animals. many a young farmboy has lost his virginity in a barn stall.

    That Myron Magnet article was especially fine – thanks.

  • Bob Belvedere

    What an ass that Democrat is [somebody had to say it].

  • K-Bob

    Yep. I skimmed it the first time (having read the whole article about the Port Authority first and run out of time). I’m soaking in it later, though. I liked the opening, so I think it looks real good.

    But if certain sexual practices are said to be genetic and cannot be helped and therefore embraced cannot that argument be made for all deviant sexual practices?
