Earlier this year, the well-known ultra-hipster magazine and clickbait cesspool Vice launched a new site called Broadly, which is essentially their answer to feminist blogs like Jezebel and Feministing. When the blog was first announced, its publisher Shannon Kelley stated: “If you look at the current landscape of women’s media, it is purely reactionary. Blogs are either reacting to the news, gossiping about celebrities or discussing the latest beauty and fashion trends. No one is telling original stories that women specifically relate to. For Vice, it is in our DNA to provide original, story-driven video content and speak to a millennial audience.”
So, what kind of original, non-reactionary, millennial-approved content that women specifically relate to is Vice publishing under its new Broadly umbrella?
Well, aside from the usual insipid junk about fashion, celebrities, dating, horoscopes, “the patriarchy”, and so forth, Broadly just published this new article about how bestiality is the latest progressive thing that modern-day women should embrace.
No, I’m not exaggerating.
The article is called “Animal Urges: Women and Bestiality“. It opens with this picture, setting the mood:
Yeah, you see where this is going. But let’s go further.
Why would anyone want to have sex with anything other than a human being? I scoured the internet for female bestiality performers and found lessons on desire and deviance instead.
If you’re taking “lessons” from people who have sex with animals, it might be time to rethink your life.
The author states that, before conducting her “research”, she agreed with sensible people that bestiality is wrong:
We all know the main argument for why inter-special mating between animals and humans is wrong: common language. “Animals cannot talk, thus cannot accuse the individual of forcing them to have sex with him/her against their will,” wrote Ramsis in his 1969 study, which is cited by sexual therapist and author Dr. Hani Miletski in her book Understanding Bestiality and Zoophila.) Furthermore, animals carry different diseases, genes, hormones; it’s just too obscure. Most people think it’s biologically gross and morally wrong.
This is where I stood when I started this research. Why would anyone want to have sex with anything other than a human being? But, as I logged into every bestiality forum that would accept me, read all the comment threads, uncovered all the theories from therapists, doctors, and sexologists, and talked to some female zoophiles themselves, my thoughts changed. I’m not for it, but their arguments started to seem…if not valid, at least understandable. Did my nights on Beast Forum create a type of Stockholm Syndrome? I mean, what’s so wrong about desiring a reindeer? I found myself thinking, horrified. How is having sex with a pig any crueler than murdering it for bacon? What’s worse, rape or murder? My logical self vacated for the sake of an argument.
Now, I’ve been a vegetarian since I was ten years old, but even I can tell you that killing a pig for bacon at least serves some kind of purpose, whereas raping a pig does not. This is not exactly a very complex concept. People in third-world countries depend on meat for living, but nobody depends on raping animals for anything other than their own sick desires.
The author goes on to describe at great length how bestiality has been practiced all throughout human history, as if that makes it okay. I mean, last I checked, murder has been practiced throughout all of human history too. So have rape, pedophilia, slavery, genocide, and – perhaps worst of all – “patriarchy”. Does that mean that those things are okay too?
The article then goes on to talk about the long history of porn actresses having sex with animals. You mean, porn actresses tend to be mentally damaged individuals? Shock and awe! I don’t know about you, but I don’t really consider the behavior of porn stars to be a model for what ordinary women should do.
The article then goes on to the author describing how hard it was for her to find female zoophiles who were willing to talk to her.
When I started this research my goal was simple: to talk to a woman who has had sex with an animal for either pay or pleasure. Male zoophiles dominated Miletski’s statistics (she had 80 male participants and 11 female), and I wasn’t interested in interviewing yet another pale German man about all the “beautiful, reciprocal” lovemaking he shares with his mutt.http://www.blazingcatfur.ca/2015/08/10/vice-publishes-pro-bestiality-article-on-their-new-feminist-blog-broadly/
