The BBC has a rather odd news item today from the land of European disciplinarians and moralising creditors. Two things rather stand out in this article;
First is that sex with animals was ever made legal in Germany.
"Germany legalised bestiality (zoophilia) in 1969, except when the animal suffered "significant harm"."
Who lobbied for this law?
The other thing that makes me wonder is the comment from a self-professed zoophile;
"Michael Kiok, the chairman of the pressure group Zoophile Engagement for Tolerance and Information (Zeta), said he was going to take legal action to fight the proposed changes.
"We see animals as partners and not as a means of gratification. We don't force them to do anything. Animals are much easier to understand than women," Mr Kiok claimed."
Whilst I do concur with Mr Kiok on the latter point I can’t see this as a legitimate reason to abandon attempts at fornication with the fairer sex in favour of creatures who will never realise that the reflection in the mirror is themselves.
If this story wasn’t about Germany and wasn’t so utterly bizarre I would definitely be checking my diary for April 1.
