This weekend a friend and I were discussing a possible move to Florida — hers, not mine — and were listing pros and cons.
Me? I’ve never thought about living there…but I guess being able to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter whenever you’d like would be a decided advantage.
But here’s a little fact about Florida that may change her mind…and perhaps the mind of anyone considering a move to The Sunshine State:
Florida lawmakers recently voted to outlaw sex.
Yep. Apparently they were trying to outlaw bestiality, but instead made “knowing sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal” illegal.
Turns out humans are animals, too.
Florida says the wording was intentional. Once signed by the governor, the law as written will go into a special chapter that only deals with crimes against ‘dumb’ animals, so it doesn’t pertain to humans at all.
Now, I applaud any legislation that gives animals additional protections. But a state that accidentally outlaws sex and calls my dog dumb?
Two strikes, you’re out.
