Over the Edge Dutch Tolerance

Seeking sanity? Don't look toward the Netherlands where they are certainly in the habit of pushing the tolerance envelope.

If a new police proposal is adopted, intoxicated park goers wanting to have sex will have the state's blessing unless their ill-behaved pets get off the leash and poop on the grass while their owners are otherwise engaged. (Heh-heh. I said get off.)

Because, geez, that poop is really disgusting!

Of course Hollanders should be comforted by the strict guidelines that accompany this license to publicly fornicate since the participants must stay away from the playgrounds, they must do it in the evening or at night, and the disposal of all condoms is mandated.

Some are quite pleased.

Homosexuals' organisation COC is pleased that the Amsterdam Oud-Zuid district is to be the first to tolerate sex in the Vondelpark. "Cruising is something belonging to all time and banning it does not work anyway. They do it surreptitiously and mostly without others being annoyed by it. But homos at cruising spots are often attacked. By now agreeing rules of behaviour on this, safety can be increased," according to COC Amsterdam chairman Dennis Boutkan.
Me personally? If I happen to wander off of a secluded little park path I'd much rather run headlong into a wayward turd than an unclothed couple of drunks in the heat of entangled passion.

I was raised Mennonite for cryiin' out loud. Dogs do crap sometimes, but babies are found under cabbage leaves.
