Dolphin boy speaks Anyone remember the Peter Singer review of a book about bestiality linked here a month or so ago? The book is also reviewed at amazon by none other than the Dolphin Boy whose dolphin zoophilia or whatever site was discussed yesterday.

I really don't understand this. I mean, if an animal makes a pass at you, it's consential. But I don't see how consential an animal can be. It has the desire, no one's being hurt, so I guess it's OK. So confusing.

what is it supposed to be?

Holloway: Consensual. Hated to be silly, but . . . oh goodness, I'm still under the influence of the David Foster Wallace article in Harper's about English snoots. Anyway, back to getting the thingie right. A diagram of consent? Direct and indirect effects, etc.?

penis bird

is a little summary of the penis bird... but be warned, you might not want to go looking to deeply into the penis bird issue at work.

davidgentle: here as I'm having difficulty posting it here.

raysmj: ta, thanks. Just wondering how concensual the sex could be. I would consider sex between people of different intellectual capacity too manipulative (drunk guy and sober girl, intellectually disabled person and... average?). So reasoning out human on animal action, er.

Back to the drawing board.

You're absolutely right, Holloway. Dolphin boy was clearly taken advantage of.

``There used to be a time when guy-on-guy or woman-on-woman relationships were looked at as unnatural acts,'' Noel told the San Francisco Chronicle last month. ``What concern is it to anybody if there is or isn't a personal relationship?''

Right. Got it. Though, to be honest, the photo was actually more helpful in figuring out what you meant. And I don't "work". I "slouch".

I had no idea there was an actual penis bird.

Somehow, knowing that makes all those slashdot posts approximately 27% less interesting.
