Senate: No to droopy drawers, sex with animals
Students should not wear clothing that exposes their underwear or body parts in school, and people should not have sex with animals, Florida Senators agreed Wednesday.
The full chamber moved to a final vote two bills against sagging pants and bestiality -- measures the Senate has passed before but have failed to gain traction in the House.
There was practically no debate on the proposals. Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, called his "code of student conduct" legislation "a pro-family, pro-education, pro-jobs bill," though he did not explain how keeping kids from exposing their butt cracks or boxers would decrease unemployment.
Since that year, the chamber has also been trying to make bestiality illegal, pushed by Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston.
"I don't even want to speculate why" there would be opposition to making sex with animals a first-degree misdemeanor, said Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico. (Read the bill here.)
Bestiality, she suggested, is closely linked to abusing humans. "There is an 88 percent correlation," Rich said.
