What kind of a world do we live in where animal owners need to be on watch to prevent sick perverts forcing sex on the poor beasts?
I was truly amazed late last year at news that a man just across the border from my abode, in
The WA story was revisited recently after that State’s legislature passed a law banning sex with animals. Now I see
Come on people! Sex with animals? Just the fact that laws are needed is bad enough, what kind of sick bastard has fantasies about getting it on with an animal? Okay, I warned you about my naiveté, but really.
In the AZ hearings the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said his agency has rejected job applicants because they have had sex with animals. I’m pleased to hear there is no discrimination law to force these sickos to be accepted for employment. I have trouble accepting them as fellow human beings.
But if you ‘Google’ bestiality on the search engine's news, there it is, a new crop daily of sick reports. It’s not even about pets, although that wouldn’t make it any more acceptable.
In WA the reports talked about actual farms whose business was providing animals for these animals. The mind boggles at how someone could pull into one of these animal brothels and retain any sort of human dignity.
Other reports, including in WA talk of desperate men hopping farm fences to get to poor unsuspecting animals. Often the only charge for their offensive behaviour has been trespass.
We refuse to post images of children on our various websites because even the most innocent image can apparently be arousing to another set of sick bastards, the pedophiles. But now I’m wondering about all those cute cartoon images of animals. You know, like the pigs wearing jackets and no pants or the roly poly elephants. Were our childhood cartoonists actually promoting some kind of weird fantasy primer?
Somehow I don’t see how rushing laws through will make a great deal of difference. I expect that anyone desperate enough to pork a pig or dink a donkey has lost that vital spark of humanity which might otherwise allow respect for laws.
Let’s face it, if they are so driven by sick fantasies they are well beyond concern over the social consequences of their actions. Even with the risk of public humiliation these sick folk still persist in their deranged acts.
As a topic for Talk About Corruption, I admit it is one I would not normally be inclined to visit. But corrupt acts they are, as they undeniably constitute abuse of power. It is, after all, difficult to believe these can be conceptual relationships; the human perpetrator has power and advantage.
Personally I remain bewildered by the whole concept.
