Please sign this petition at Change.org to make bestiality videos illegal.
=================

OVERVIEW

~~How this works (Synopsis): Porn and torture videos are invasive, and not necessary for the sustenance or well being of the participants, thus nobody can sign for them. Children cannot legally sign a consent, and neither can beasts. This is a separate legal charge apart from existing porn laws due to lack of legal consent. It will also *automatically make bestiality videos…illegal. ~~

MANY AMERICANS RAPE ANIMALS: Some are so proud and shameless of it, they video record themselves doing it and post it all over the net. Not only is it tolerated in American – but it’s also protected as “free speech”. Tell me-what does RAPE have to do with any kind of free speech anyway? (Bestiality is LEGAL in 20 States!)

Bestiality is more common than people would like to think as evidenced by the wide spread sex porn on the net of humans engaging copulation with subhuman animals. It’s sick and revolting. Animals can’t talk and report sexual assaults. If a person Googles web search “dog sex”, “horse sex” or even “beast sex” a million returns depicting human engaging sex with some kind of animal that even teenagers are accessing, downloading, and sharing with peer-to-peer software contributing to the delinquency of minors in all 50 States and animal cruelty. Committing crime and this corruption of minors is not part of free speech. This reflects society as a whole-people watching bestiality videos will lead to the real thing: Bestiality recordings are very epidemic all over America. It’s just a matter of time people watching these videos people will go on craigslist.com and adopt their own “Free to good home” dog or cat to fulfill their unnatural sexual longings which will even injure the animal. These animals are small, and can’t report to the police they were cruelly abused.

This reflects society as a whole-people watching bestiality videos will eventually lead to the real thing as free to good home animals are everywhere, and what people do behind closed doors nobody will know about-they are after all getting off watching these videos, so massively available on the Web and will take it a step further.

LEGAL CONSENT MANDATE with pornography or torture videos due to its invasiveness; to include distribution.

Freedom of speech becomes the rape, or assault and battery, instrument when porn, or torture recordings without or without sexual contact, are created and/or distributed, against one’s will, or participant(s) unable to give legal consent; this includes acts of animal cruelty.

(1) This Act of Lack of consent is a separate charge from any existing laws regarding pornography of its creation and/or its distribution;

(2) This is to include the creation and/or distribution of any recorded media or photo;

(3) Pornography is invasive therefore requires legal consent of all participants: Works of sexual intercourse, and/or including infliction of pain and suffering (sadomasochism or torture videos with or without sexual contact): The work appeals to the prurient interests only lacking genuine scientific, artistic (i.e., fictional or computer generated) or political merit.

(4) No power of attorney or ownership of participant of said work can give legal consent because these pornographic recordings/distribution do not contribute to the welfare or sustenance of such individuals whether human or non-humans. Bestiality (humans having sex with animals) and necrophilia (live humans having sex with dead bodies) would be rendered illegal as these participants (subhuman animals, and the dead) cannot give legal consent. Child porn also lacks legal consent (minors cannot give legal consent). Any living thing who cannot give legal consent has no business being in a porn or sadomasochism flick.

(5) Recordings (and/or distribution) of any kind and photos of sexual activity, or torture (even without sexual contact), done by concealed cameras or equipment without the awareness of the participant(s) is prohibited due to lack of legal consent.

(5) This proposal cannot break existing legal contracts unless by usual due process of law.

EXEMPTIONS:
(1) IN GENERAL- This section shall not apply with regard to any visual depiction of–
(A) customary and normal veterinary or agricultural husbandry practices;
(B) the slaughter of animals for food; or
(C) hunting, trapping, or fishing.
(2) GOOD-FAITH DISTRIBUTION-
(A) a law enforcement agency; or
(B) a third party for the sole purpose of analysis to determine if referral to a law enforcement agency is appropriate.

Thank you for your time and reading.

Sincerely,

In their excellent article, “Here we go again: PETA expands its definition of bestiality“, Vegansaurus! exposes the latest in PETA’s idiocy, namely they are now equating artificial insemination of animals and even women receiving sexual stimulation from riding horseback with bestiality – and claiming that there’s nothing wrong with people fucking animals.  Their post is well worth reading by itself, in addition to the article they are responding to in the Huffington Post that equates eating meat with bestiality.

I originally wrote much of the post that follows as a response to both Vegansaurus’s post and the PETA piece, and then decided to open this blog and post it here instead, so as to not highjack Vegansurus’s agenda, and so that I could speak more freely and extensively about my own point of view.  I realized I was starting to stray somewhat from their focus.

I’m no vegan, and I do believe that we humans are the top of the food chain, but I do also very much believe in humane treatment of them through out the process, the lack of which in current food processing methods is already well-known and written about extensively elsewhere.  Those practices must change, to be sure.  I won’t debate that.   I also don’t keep kosher, but very much respect the laws of kashrut that are intended to minimize the suffering of animals and to respect the contribution they make to our survival as people.  There is a reason that the Torah commands us to feed our animals before we eat ourselves (among many other things), and that is to ensure we don’t forget them after we ourselves are satisfied, to be sure we care for them well.  Whether or not one ascribes to a particular religious point of view or not, however, the belief in the importance of taking good care of the creatures who depend upon us for their very existence, and to minimize their suffering throughout their lifespan, including at its termination, is what matters.  You don’t have to have any religion at all to feel strongly about that.

It does not take a rocket scientist, however, to realize that artificial insemination is in no way the same thing as people engaging in sexual behavior with animals for the purpose of the person’s sexual gratification.  One has a legitimate husbandry purpose that results in feeding a lot more people, and when done humanely, is quite clinical and results in no harm to the animal; the other is sheer exploitation and abuse, for all of the reasons I detail elsewhere in this blog and below, and which Vegansaurus discusses so well.

========================

The Huffington Post article is one of the most twisted things I’ve read on this subject to date.  There is no way that any kind of bestiality is consensual, and no way that it is not abusive to animals, whether actively doing something sexual *to* the animal, or having it do something to *you*.  That PETA should even consider this point of view is incredible.  To equate it with eating meat, however, is beyond ridiculous.

Aside from the obvious injuries that occur when people do things like jam rods into the orifices of helpless creatures, or when people get their own colons penetrated and they die from the injuries, there is the problem of what happens to the animal when it gets the idea it is dominant to people, as does clearly happen with some animals subjected to sexual abuse, particularly dogs.  (I would guess there are more species for which this may apply, but much less is known about the psychology of nondomestic animals and how they interact with people.)

There is extremely little written on this subject, but anyone who has been involved in pet rescue will tell you that, at least with dogs, they sometimes have to be put down after being involved in bestiality because sex is a dominance issue with them, and once they get the idea they are dominant to people, they can become uncontrollable and extremely dangerous, particularly to children.  People have been mauled even to death by dogs who have been subject to animal sexual abuse; children are most frequently the victims because they are small and cannot fight back effectively..

When that happens, the animal has to be euthanized because it can’t be rehabilitated to be safe around people any more.

I fail to understand how this could possibly be in any animal’s best interests.

And it cannot possibly be consensual, as animals lack the inherent capacity to consent, as defined by law.  Even if the animal does “enjoy” its encounters with people, death is a high price to pay, especially when it’s the people who have created the situation to start with. (more…)
