Recently I shared with you all a disturbing story regarding what I'm going to call bestiality. The man utilized his dog to sexually abuse his stepdaughter. His charges were dropped due to the legal definition of bestiality only encompassing penetration.
I have attached a link to the actual law itself which outlines specifically penetration. It states that the law does not include oral sex or genital touching. I just want that to sink in for a minute. The law says that sexual touching and oral sex with an animal is NOT ILLEGAL! What year is this? I am so completely shocked and appalled that the law actually outlines oral / sexual touching as not included within the term "bestiality". In this day and age, we have come so far with the rights of our minorities including African American rights, Women's rights, and LGBT rights because our communities have rallied to protest and demand better treatment under the law. These laws reflect our changing views as a society. With that being said, our animal rights have been overlooked for over 50 years. That's 50 years that people have exploited and sexually abused animals with little to no punishment.
I am still awaiting a response in regards to my email from the Supreme Court. My email to the PM's office was responded to and they said they carefully reviewed my email and forwarded me to the Attorney General of Canada. All I can say is I hope I can get the right people talking. I hope I can get the right people questioning the legality of bestiality and questioning their morals in this situation. I do not support something I can not 100% stand behind and I'm hoping that with attention, the appropriate parties will also stand up and say, "I don't agree with this".
It's time for change in Canada! What an embarrassment this case was and it really shone a light on how archaic and in need of updating our animal rights laws are. I truly hope I can pioneer change and I hope I can count on each and every one of you for support!
