Silly woman and silly proposal

And Florida democrats...


Here in Florida we're debating whether bestiality should be made a crime. Legislation has been introduced that would target only those who derived or helped others derive ''sexual gratification'' from an animal, specifying that conventional dog-judging contests and animal-husbandry practices are permissible.


That last provision tripped up Miami Democratic Sen. Larcenia Bullard.


''People are taking these animals as their husbands? What's husbandry?'' she asked. Some senators stifled their laughter as Sen. Charlie Dean, an Inverness Republican, explained that husbandry is raising and caring for animals. Bullard didn't get it.


''So that maybe was the reason the lady was so upset about that monkey?'' Bullard asked, referring to a Connecticut case where a woman's suburban chimpanzee went mad and was shot.

It is interesting.


Back about 50 to 60 years ago or so, almost everyone in a city had roots back to the country somehow. Used to live there. Had close friends there. etc. etc. etc. In those times virtually anyone would have been familiar with that term husbandry, the instant it was used. It is not a term used by many country oriented people. But it is a term understood by virtually all.




Now few people in cities have any connection with farms. Kids cannot understand why anyone would raise chickens for eggs when you can buy eggs in a store. Why do you kill an animal for beef and pork when you can get it in the store. You would not believe how many adults even think that way. There was a survey not long ago on how many kids in a big city about the age of middle teens (forget the exact age) never have been more than a few blocks from home. A huge portion of kids in the inner city area have never been more than something like 15 blocks from home. I forget the exact number but it was very scary indeed.


I suspect that misunderstandings and pure ignorance like these contribute a good deal to the PETA group, and the fur industry for instance.
