Skip to comments.PETA, perverts and horses (Warning: Disturbing Quotes)

[The Enumclaw case, for those of you who don't know, refers to a man who died from having sex with a horse; an investigation by the sheriff's office found a farm which was a haven for bestiality perverts]
The Enumclaw case highlights two increasingly important ideological debates. The first, and seemingly the more minor of the two (for the time being) is within the animal rights movement, and centers around whether animals should be treated as identical to humans. On the one side, stands PETA and Peter Singer, a founder of the animal rights movement. On the other stands the Humane Society and Friends for Animals.
He went on to explain that its taboo was a mere pretext for distinguishing ourselves from animals, "erotically and any other way", and thus denying them fair treatment. He explained that some intra-species relationships could lead to "mutually satisfying conclusions".
While he came under heavy fire for his comments, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk not only defended Singer, but also bestiality. "If a girl gets sexual pleasure from riding a horse, does the horse suffer? If not, who cares? If you French kiss your dog and he or she thinks it's great, is it wrong? We believe all exploitation and abuse is wrong If it isn't exploitation and abuse, it may not be wrong."
PETA, it has been suggested, defends bestiality as a backdoor to equating animals with humanity. If animal human relationships are equal to human relationships, then eating an animal would become tantamount to cannibalism. However, her statements beg the question: how do you know when an animal is being sexually exploited?

Anyways, thoughts, comments?
Same can be said for homosexuality and the spread of HIV....
This is just disgusting. PETA: "People for the EROTIC Treatment of Animals"
It's just plain sick, and no doubt distressing to the animals who have to endure these filthy attentions. They are abusing helpless animals.
"If you French kiss your dog and he or she thinks it's great, is it wrong?"
My dog eats his frozen poo out in the yard in the wintertime, and he also seems to enjoy licking all the areas of his body he can reach.
I'm not getting anywhere near his mouth.............
No, no you don't....
And that was my initial reaction to, to that.
later pingout for sure.
well, they said they love animals, but who knew?
Moral Absolutes Ping.
More on the vileness in Washington State. So PETA thinks "eroticism" between animals and humans is fine, as long as it's consensual or something. These people don't qualify as members of the human race. They may walk upright on two legs, but their mentality is subhuman.
Bestiality should be (a) illegal and (b) carry a severe punishment. My favorite would be public caning, with a big sign explaining the crime.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
They are pigs, so would that make it okay for them to have sex with people?... Course, finding a willing partner might be a bit problematic for 'em then.
A horse is a horse,
(of course, of course),
and no-one can talk to a horse
That is, of course,
unless the horse
is the famous Mr. Ed.
Oh Mr. Ed, the courageous FReepers won't let Ms. Newkirk get her hands (paws?hooves?) on you.
