For one, you can't communicate with them - you can only guess based on behaviors. That bit is easy to understand. But that's not the only problem with it - the behavior would be considered abuse and harmful to the animal in question (I really don't want to think about the logistics of "harm" since this is a really strange topic..... No Confused) and whether or not you are going to kill the animal for food, they should be treated humanely while alive and killed in a humane manner when time comes (quickly and painlessly). That rules out foie gras and some other foods as less-than-moral.

Then there's the social factor. It is strange behavior to desire to have intercourse with an animal, to say the least. I'm pretty sure it ranks significantly below pedos and incest. The mere hint that you're interested in such a thing would make 99.999999% of individuals shriek, run away and consider you an abomination.

Then you'll have the fundies screaming about how they were right, gay marriage / acceptability is a slippery slope leading to bestiality.

I like this forum for its openness to discussing pretty much everything, but this is one topic that I would never have liked to see... Blink Gotta think that any new visitors running across the site would see this thread and run away with the impression that us atheists are a weird group of freaks...

You must of missed the two give pedophiles a chance threads.

What kind of research is supposed to be done before legalizing it?

What causes it. The repercussions to the psyche of both (or more) participants. You know, the basic questions I'd want to know about homosexuality, which already have been answered.

Was there any research necessary before legalizing homosexuality? Wink

Saw 'em, but I'm pretty sure I didn't choose to comment. Equally embarrassing - and for some of the same reasons. Just adds to the perception that we're freaks.

Better without God, and happier too.

I believe it was. If I had no idea about what caused the sexual orientation, or what the repercussions of it was, I would want research before its legalization.

Are you asking because you're thinking about volunteering? Consider

No, though I have stated as to why researching it would be an issue. The trouble would be finding a control group that is willing to participate.
