  1. The gay marriage poster may be the best image ever...seems likely to be a meme in perpetuity!

    It's no surprise that FReepers, like conservatives generally, still haven't quite grasped the meaning of consent. But the idea that legalizing same-sex marriage is going to cause ducks to make out with goats is a whole new ballgame. As is the idea that thanks to Obama and his gay minions, humans will soon be breeding giant grasshoppers for sex.

    1. Good ol' slippery slope argument. Another way of utilizing fear.

    2. And the "slope" in this case is particularly non-slippery because it's fair to say that the vast, vast, vast majority of the population has never been tempted to french-kiss a cat, let alone a grasshopper. Satan Himself could come down tomorrow and proclaim himself Master of the Universe, and most people would definitely not say "Great! We'll finally be able to fuck grasshoppers!"

      My point being, what kind of pervert formulates this sort of stuff as a specific prohibition? You may as well formally prohibit nailing your dick to a tree...999,999 people out of a million will say, "WTF?! Why the hell would I want to do that?" And one, maybe, will say, "It hadn't occurred to me until now to do that, but it sounds kind of hot."

      I have some troubling suspicions about which group the average FReeper is more likely to belong to.

    3. Consent does not apply to animals. This is a rather laughable liberal concept and refutation. Animals have no rights whatsoever, let alone the right to refuse anything a human being imposes upon them. So kissing a cow is totally banned, but killing one is A-OK

    4. It is kind of a window into the way their minds work, isn't it.

      Now that just cracked me up.

    6. I think that sentence belongs in George Carlin's routine, "Things You Never Hear."

    7. What people would say if Satan proclaimed himself Master of the Universe is "What's in it for me?"

  2. Also, the first band to use that gay marriage graphic in a flyer or on an album cover wins.

  3. Consent does not apply to animals.

    That was kind of my point, believe it or not. That's why it's stupid to conflate sex between consenting adults with bestiality, child rape, etc. Animals can't consent and children can't consent. Gay couples can. But for some reason, anti-gay conservatives tend to lump all these phenomena together as though they have something essential in common. (Although I'm not a scientist, I suspect that it's because they're absolute fucking morons.)

    But thanks for the unnecessary Ethics 101 lesson, all the same.

    1. You may not be a scientist, but you are a moron. Animals not only cannot consent, they don't NEED to consent to have anything done to them. They have no rights.

    3. What a stupid conversation! Anonymous 9:39, the fact that animals can't consent is the whole point. How is it possible that you have missed that, twice?

      In case you're extra dense, I'll spell it out for you: relationships with animals -- or anything else that's not human -- has nothing to do with relationships between consenting adults. Get it? Got it? Good.

  4. Correct. Animals can not consent. Leaving aside the fact of language use, they are incapable of understanding the terms they are consenting to. How is that different from a toddler?

    And an interesting historical anomoly: The RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was formed 25 years before the associated organization to protect children. That was originally part of the RSPCA.

  5. Freepers: Old Testament most of the time. New testament whenever challenged on how batshit crazy the Old Testament is with respect to modern life. That whole "Well, we don't do that anymore because Christ said blah, blah, blah." But mostly -- Old Testament.

    By the way, I'm kind of liking Mrs. Don-O and waiting for her to get the zot for contradicting the bloodthirsty status quo. Do you ever do a spotlight for freepers who take a decent stand against the repugnant party line on Free Republic? There aren't many, but they exist. You know, just to mix it up a bit.
