First pedophile rights, now bestiality rights? A bestiality-rights organization called Equality For All (EFA) is launching the first-ever International Zoophile-Rights/Bestiality-Rights Day. The day will take place on Saturday and express full support for people having sexual relations with animals.
The group replaces the word “love” with “levo” to describe what they feel is the bonding between people and animals. “Love is a religious word. Levo is the concept of limitless compassion undefined by stereotype and dogma,” they write on their website. How is it used in sentence? “I am in Levo with my horse.”/ “I am in Levo with my gay husband” / “I am in Levo with my transgendered girlfriend.”
EFA then tries to normalize these sick sexual acts by placing them in sentences next to traditional relationships. “A man has sex with his horse. A man has sex with his wife A woman has sex with her dog. A woman has sex with her husband,” they write.
In November 2008, the head of EFA said “we are convinced that animals are not lower than people. We are convinced that just like people, they have soul, emotions and are able to live. We see no reason to underestimate them and treat them as inferior beings.”
Although bestiality is permitted in a handful of countries including Brazil and Cambodia, and Russia permits zoophilia pornography, it is banned in most places worldwide. Zoophilia is banned in all 50 U.S. states, with 20 states classifying it as a felony. Only North Dakota does not recommend prison time for convicted animal rapists. Michigan holds the toughest laws on this front, calling for life sentences for repeat offenders. Louisiana suggests up to 50 years in prison and a $75,000 fine, while Maryland recommends 20-year prison sentences for those convicted of bestiality.
