State legislators in Florida recently instituted bestiality bill SB 344, which bans sexual activity between humans and animals. In addition, a “droopy drawers bill,” SB 228, will require Florida residents to keep their pants from sagging too low. Both bills  passed the Florida Senate and House Wednesday and await Gov. Rick Scott’s signature.

Florida has been trying to outlaw bestiality since 2009

Sen. Nan Rich from Sunrise, Fla., first introduced anti-bestiality legislation in the Florida Senate in 2009. While banning bestiality seems an obvious move, critics like leading bestiality researcher Dr. Hani Miletski have attacked Rich for connecting the tendency toward bestiality with a tendency to commit sex crimes against human children. While clinical connections may or may not exist between the two sex acts, it is understandably difficult to sympathize with individuals who justify sex with animals under any context.

Assuming Gov. Scott signs the SB 344 bestiality bill into law, sex with animals will become a first-degree misdemeanor in Florida. Florida was one of 16 U.S. states without anti-bestiality laws.

“This is long overdue,” Rich said. “These are heinous crimes. And people belong in jail.”

Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground

NBC Miami columnist Brian Hamacher writes that “Floridians are going to have to start pulling up their pants and stop having sex with animals soon.” For most people, thinking about a droopy drawers bill on its own satisfies the recommended daily allowance of low-brow humor. Senate Bill 228 states that young people must pull their pants up and not show their underwear. Violations can result in suspensions from school and other punishments.
