Another ‘thanks sex pozzers!’ post (this time with added bestiality)

I am putting a TRIGGER WARNING on this, as I discuss bestiality scenarios, and the abuse of women to make bestiality porn.

These numpties have zero understanding of non-human animal* physiology and psychology – it should be irrelevant anyway, because of the not-small fact that animals are not capable of consenting to sex with humans.

But since some people may consider it a plausible argument (and think that they are getting ‘progressive’ ‘edgy’ points for not ‘shaming’ zoophiles), let’s address it.

First, and most obviously, there is the simple fact of scale; small animals like cats or rabbits or poultry, even if they are already ‘sexually active’ with their own species, are too small to be penetrated by a human male. And since we’re talking about penetration, while male-male same-sex behaviour has been observed in a wide range of animal species, actual anal penetration has not, so a ‘sexually active’ male animal, of any size, is not ‘physically ready’ for sex with a human male.

Secondly, most species of animals only mate when they are in season/heat, and the female of the species will select a suitable mate after some kind of courtship display or similar behaviour; this will involve complex visual and biochemical cues, so that the female ‘knows’ she is mating (and potentially reproducing with) a suitable male. Being penetrated by a human male will not recreate any of this, the female animal will not experience it as mating in any meaningful way; it will just be a violent attack on her genitals, she will not be ‘mentally and physically ready’ for it in any capacity.

This attitude to bestiality is actually an extension of misogyny, women exist to be fucked, therefore a vagina is an insensate ‘hole’ that exists to be penetrated, therefore penetrating a non-human animal’s vagina is no big deal either.

Of course, not all bestiality is human males penetrating female or male animals. Women being penetrated by animals is a woman-hating porn genre, and some male zoophiles will train animals such as horses to anally penetrate them (see the documentary Zoo, about an infamous case where a man died participating in this practice).

Anyone who has seen the behaviour of an unneutered male dog will realise that it probably isn’t that difficult to get some male animals to behave in such a way, but male animals are still responding to biochemical cues when they mate, training them to penetrate a human (male or female) is getting them to behave in a way that is contrary to their nature, it is as cruel and degrading as any mainstream circus act.

I imagine that some soi-disant ‘bright spark’ will bring up the social behaviour of animals like chimps and bonobos, where animals will engage in non-reproductive sexual activity (including same-sex activity) in order to strengthen social bonds (I have written about this before, in the context of it not being proof that prostitution is a ‘natural’ behaviour), but again, this is only something that occurs within a species, and more to the point, within a tightly knit social group; this doesn’t prove that such animals are sexually available to anyone from any species, they are not ‘mentally and physically ready’ for a human barging in on their complex social interactions (and fortunately, given that chimps at least are much more powerful than humans, any idiot trying to get in on the ‘action’ would likely be torn limb from limb).

In (stating the bloody obvious) conclusion, it is not natural for any animal to ‘have sex with’ a human, they cannot consent to it, and even if they can be trained to do it, it is unnatural and cruel.

I can’t believe it was necessary for me to expend this much mental energy on this subject – thanks sex pozzers!

[*I’m saying ‘non-human animals’, because humans are a species of animal too, and thinking of animals and humans as having a massive gulf between us leads to all kinds of issues with animal welfare, environmental destruction, and human atomisation (forgetting that we are social animals too). These points, however, are not pertinent to this post, but I did want to make the point once; I will simply use ‘animals’ for most of the post.]
