If she really can't think of anything else she'd want from a husband, she has got to be pretty farking dumb and boring.

Why can't America be more like Croatia? I'd take the tax breaks that come along with listing my dog as a stay at home spouse in an instant.

Surprisingly, just about what you would expect someone marrying a dog to look like.

Infernalist: It's farking retarded.  You can't marry something that can't consent.

People ascribe all sorts of "people only" things to their damn pets; consent is just another.

/ no, your dog cannot feel love
// it will eat you given the opportunity

People eat dogs.

By your logic that means people can't feel love.

/make of that what you will.

No, that would be if I said the dogs can't feel love because they would eat another species. As I said no such thing, you fail basic logic.


The latest scientific understanding is that dogs do indeed have emotions and an intelligence level roughly equivalent to around 2 year old human child. I guess you think human children don't feel love, huh?

The thing is, at this point it's pretty obvious that consciousness is not a binary thing - where a creature either has it or doesn't. It's likely a continuum of degrees. But it's much more convenient for us to think of it as binary in order to not have to feel guilt over our treatment of other species. By denying the ability of another creature to feel emotions we then insulate ourselves from feeling guilty when we treat them as objects and avoid uncomfortable questions about our relationship with them, species to species. Back in the days of slavery people used to make similar arguments about enslaved races for the same reasons.

But denial doesn't actually change the reality. That's the thing about the truth revealed by scientific inquiry - it's still true when we stubbornly choose to deny it. Dogs feel love, and other emotions as well. Deal with it.


You're not allowed anywhere near my pets, mister.

I looked for a gift and the only thing on her bridal registry was this.  Weird.

" It's a female dog. It's a gay inter-species marriage."

Good, she won't have to worry about being spayed.

Or one would believe, in a sane world.

Enter the conundrum of the dog humping your leg. Did it gain your "consent", or is it rape? Is it just "rape", or is it "rape-rape"? Do you dare not give consent if it's a Pitbull or a Rottweiler?

Questions, questions.

That Guy Jeff: And? Do you honestly think the dog is thinking "I'm so sad my owner is dead, I'm going to sit next his grave as long as I can in mourning"? Do you honestly think the dog is even capable of thinking that?

One of my favorite bits to come out the internet in the last year or so is that "sweet" video of a dog burying another dog, showing a human-like respect for the dead and .... this just in, the dog was just saving a tasty meal for later. It was awesome. People love to anthropomorphize animals; I however, being pro-science, do not subscribe to the "oh my pet is really a little person and so full of love and emotion" theory. I also agree on the existence of human caused global climate change, that GMOs are a really good thing, that organic food is an incredible ripoff, that pot is almost completely harmless, and that kids should get vaccines. But feel to send all the touchy-feely sob stories in emails back and forth with your grandma that you want. I'm sure there can be no ill effects from attributing greater capacity to a dog than is warranted; like, say, some wacked-out psycho trying to marry her dog.

It's rape, but we don't prosecute dogs for rape because they're farking dogs.

See? We warned you there were other things in the closet. Tried to tell you not to open the door several times, cautioned you that you wouldn't like all of what you'd see when the door was opened. What did you do? Ripped it off the farking hinges. And now they are free, and you have dolphin-farkers, homo dog-farkers, even sheep-farkers... all demanding the same rights as the rest of the ones you let out. There are even kiddie-diddlers and cousin-farkers starting to make noise about it. Are you happy? Because it's too late. There is no going back. We are all doomed to die of some terrible cross-species venereal disease because of YOU, libtards. You followed Barack Hussy' O'bongo, and this is the result.

FnkyTwn: OMG FOX NEWS WAS FARKING RIGHT?!

Once you let gays marry, then it all goes to crap.

Time to stockpile.


IT'S THE SLIPPERY SLOPE!

"She married a man 20 years ago but the relationship ended within a few months." - Really? I'm shocked.
