Don’t say we didn’t warn you when same-sex marriage was legalized — that it would open the flood-gate to all other perversities, be it polygamy, incest, pedophilia or bestiality.
In a recent 7–1 majority ruling, Canada’s Supreme Court says sex acts with animals are legal in Canada, so long as there is no penetration involved.
Feliks Garcia reports for The Independent, June 9, 2016, that the ruling stemmed from a case involving a British Columbia man, DLW, convicted of 13 counts of sexually assaulting his stepdaughters — including one count of bestiality. DLW is serving a 16 year prison sentence and brought the bestiality conviction to the court on appeal.
The Supreme Court’s new ruling acquitted DLW of the bestiality count by arguing that when bestiality was first used in a 1955 code, the word was not defined to encompass every sex act with animals, and that “Although bestiality was often subsumed in terms such as sodomy or buggery, penetration was the essence – ‘the defining act’ – of the offence.” Thus the court concluded that bestiality requires penetration.
But in DLW’s case, he smeared peanut butter on the genitals of his victims and had the family dog lick it off while he videotaped the act. Court documents disclose that DLW attempted to have the dog perform intercourse on the stepdaughter, but that ultimately failed.
Representatives for the organization, Animal Justice, said the ruling should encourage Parliament to change “outdated” laws that fail to protect the country’s animals by passing the Modernizing Animal Protections Act. Animal Justice’s executive director, Camile Labchuk, said in an email to The Independent:
“As of today, Canadian law gives animal abusers license to use animals for their own sexual gratification. This is completely unacceptable, contrary to societal expectations, and cannot be allowed to continue. This much-needed bill updates the animal offences in the Criminal Code and closes this dangerous loophole to make it crystal clear that all forms of sexual activity between a person and an animal are unacceptable.”
Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Abella was the lone dissenter who had urged the court to deny the appeal. She opined that “Acts with animals that have a sexual purpose are inherently exploitative whether or not penetration occurs.”
The other members of Canada’s Supreme Court who ruled that bestiality is legal as long as there’s no penetration are Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, Thomas Albert Cromwell, Michael J. Moldaver, Andromache Karakatsanis, Richard Wagner, Clément Gascon, Suzanne Côté, and Russell Brown.
