Yep, it used to be legal in my state until this happened:

It was not specifically that it was legal, it was more of a case that no one thought that that sort of law had to be made in the first place.

Yeah. Kind of creepy. I wonder what their obsession is with it. Forbidden fruit?

Until you realize that humans are sometimes raised from birth to adulthood by adults other than merely their biological parents. Imagine the biological benefit of having an additional parent (such as an unmarried uncle or aunt) around to help raise a child or one of their younger siblings.
I see this theory as unlikely. It's based on the idea that sexuality is homo/hetero, which is a Western cultural construction and not a human universal.

I wouldn't put down the southern states in that fashion. I am from Washington state where it was legal because no one had thought it was necessary to be made illegal. In some ways I would take a second look at states that had found that they had to make it illegal, like mine sadly did when a man died from his proclivity.

It's just ignorance on their part I guess... Don't know what else to think. It's very disappointing that in this day and age that we still have people that think like Neanderthals

I may not be correct on all southern states, but a lot of them have laws with wording like "act against nature" or something similar. I don't know what Missouri laws are. As you say, it never occurred to me to concern myself, but I grew up in the Ozarks where stories if not factual occurrences abounded. But sadly, it was not confined to animals either.

I disagree with anonymous regarding laws being on the books against bestiality in part because it is a form of cruelty to animals.

I see Missouri is on there. Got to be proud of that.

A very widely spread group of states. I am surprised.

I don't think you can love a horse unless your friends put you up to it.

I agree too. Fundamentalists seem to have a fascination with what others do with their junk.
