Gay marriage irony: 13 states still have no laws against bestiality


LGBTQ Nation

While the battle continues in the fight for gay marriage, Mother Jones reports there are still 13 states that haven’t criminalized bestiality. That’s correct, two same-sex individuals in a committed, loving relationship cannot get married in most of these states, but bestiality is just fine.

From Mac McClelland, MJ‘s Human Rights Reporter:

I don’t know about you, but as you may know, when I get moody about the ridiculous discriminatory laws against homos here, I make maps of weird stuff I can legally bone or marry….

There are, you’ll probably not be surprised to learn, three times as many states with no direct prohibitions against the sexual assault of an animal (according to the Animal Legal Defense Fund) as there are states that allow gay marriage.
