I like to be contrary and think outside of the standard, accepted rules. Not that I don’t have firm beliefs but… how can things ever change if we are totally rigid and don’t even consider another perspective? At the end we still make our decisions but they can be based upon more than assumptions and snap judgments.
Where do you stand on animal or pet kissing? I’ve seen pet owners kiss their animals before. Not quite as well kissed as these illustrations but… is a kiss still a kiss or is a kiss even just a kiss?
If these illustrations creep you out think about why you don’t like them. The animals seem to be participating fully, not holding back or pulling away. Maybe the person smeared food on their lips? These are illustrations, not photographs. Illustrations are not actual images with actual people or animals. So rule that out of your thoughts in this case.
I don’t go around kissing animals at all. I don’t know where I would draw the line or judge someone else who does. But, I think it’s icky because of the bacteria and germ issue far more than anything sexual. I admit, I prefer a hug, a pat or a cuddle to kissing among myself and other humans. I don’t kiss babies, children or anyone I’m not really intimate with.
As far as the sexual thing… who can really speak for the animal and why do we draw lines never to be crossed for animals but allow children to be used and abused and sold? You may protest that it is not allowed. But, I think people have a much bigger reaction to sex with animals than they do to sex with children. To me, that is why I would not rush into decisions about bestiality, fetish or fantasy or criminal act? Our society allows some child porn. Look at some of the ads with children and think about it. Just a few years ago a diaper ad featured a baby being oogled because they looked good in their diaper. Sure it was all about fashion… sure it was….
Then there is the whole meat eating thing. If we are okay with cultivating animals in order to eat them… We say we believe everyone should be free to have sex in any style (with anyone and anything) they choose… I don’t think anyone really means it because any is a very big word, kind of like never and ever.
