Beauty in the Beast: An Adults-Only Zoo
Concerned Women for America ^ | 5/2/07 | Heather Hogue

Posted on 05/03/2007 4:18:48 PM PDT by wagglebee

Face it. With the exception of March of the Penguins, few of us actually head to our local Blockbuster to rent a documentary. Most of us want to watch something a little lighter; something that doesn't really add more to our overly stressful lives. We want to laugh and we want to relate. Nothing more. I have thought about this on several occasions, and each time, I experience pangs of guilt for not using my free time to better educate myself. But today is a new day, and after reading David Ansen's review of "Zoo" in Newsweek, I have come to the conclusion that education is entirely subjective and completely overrated.

The word "zoo" typically refers to a place you take your kids on Saturday. In the "fabulous" world of cinematics, however, it is actually a movie about zoophiles: men who find emotional and physical gratification through interspecies sex. Director Robinson Devor, along with his writing partner Charles Mudede, got their inspiration from a man in Washington who died in 2005 of internal bleeding after having sex with a stallion. Apparently, the state has a large number of zoophiles due to the lack of laws against bestiality. Because the state was unable to issue anything other than minor charges towards the other men involved, the animal was castrated as a form of punishment.

The filmmaker, appalled by the public's moralistic outcries, was determined to try and "understand" the mindset of such individuals and decided to interview the actual members involved. He claimed to be "shocked that nobody did an in-depth look at this, that there was no investigative reporting rounding the story out with the psychology involved. I thought, 'This is an opportunity.'" Devor even went so far as to agree with the Roman writer Terence who said, "I consider nothing human alien to me." The filmmaker said, "It happens, so it's part of who we are."

There is a smorgasbord of incomprehensible wrongs here: from the director's barbaric take on the truth behind this nightmare, to its premier at the Sundance Film Festival, and to the people who applaud him. Equally disturbing - or maybe even more so - is Mr. Ansen's review. He opens the column with this gem: "If you were to watch Robinson Devor's 'Zoo' with no sound, it might take you a long time to realize that the subject of this eerily beautiful movie is bestiality." He also comments that it has a "disturbingly lyrical spell."

In a society where we have so much freedom, it can sometimes be hard to know where to draw the line - but there is a line. Devon's film has definitely opened Pandora's Box of wrongs. Oh, and dear Mr. Ansen, shame on you! Condoning such repugnant immorality only encourages it. Documentaries are intended to educate. If this "education" is indicative of what is to come, I am certain I will be on a documentary diet for a long time.

The wrong mammal was castrated.

Wasn’t there a man in Seattle who died after his encounter with a stallion?

So there isn't a law against a human having sex with an animal, but there IS a law against an animal having sex with a human? Did Bill Clinton have something to do with this?

Because when an animal has sex with you, it’s a “hate crime”.

Ewwww! I’m sick of left wing psychobabble. These people do not deserve to be understood! They deserve some serious psychiatric help. The horse knew no better. Men practicing this crap are the ones that need to be castrated. The sad thing is, we knew this stuff was coming with advent of deviant sexual practices of the homosexual agenda. Just look at the Netherlands, beastiality is now legal, and polygamy is on its way. Someone needs to draw a line in the sand because this moral relativism is wrong.

In Los Angeles just a few years ago a guy was busted in Malibu for raping a horse. He was tried and convicted of something and heck if the same guy was busted again after he got out. Must have been a might urge!

IIRC in Leviticus both the human and the animal are to be destroyed. Part of the reason may be to prevent cross species infections. Some pathogens may be harmless in one body but be deadly in another.

Actually it was on a farm in the town of Enumclaw. A rural area of King County. The man might have been from Seattle, not sure. The farm is well known for offering these “services”.

zoophiles: men who find emotional and physical gratification through interspecies sex.

I hate to be picky, but I hate that men are the only ones who are being painted with the deviant brush here. It's not only men. FOR EXAMPLE and when they say the marriage was consumated with a swim, the way I heard it the marriage was consumated and they swam.

Not only is it glorified in film, it's rationalized in academia, see HERE Peter Singer professor of bio-ethics in the human values school at Princeton doesn't think bestiality is so bad at all... except between men and chickens, because the chickens often die.

Diseases that are confined to one species can cross to humans through sexual intercourse.

AIDS is a prime example of a disease found in monkeys crossing over to infect humans.

It is not good to mess with Mother Nature ( as the old margarine commercial used to say.)

"I consider nothing human alien to me." The filmmaker said, "It happens, so it's part of who we are."

A. It is NOT human behavior. And B: It's not part of who I am, fiend!

Yes, part of the new frontier of Sex Positive Utopia! Sex with anything that doesn't turn around and kill you! (Oops, that'll be the next big thrill - mountain lions!)

God set up a perfect world. That world “fell” with man through mankind’s disobedience. Then God gave man set of rules to protect mankind from consequences of foolish behavior in this fallen world.

Of course you don’t want to hear that. It’s “Hate-Speech.”

The door for this was opened in 1972, when the board of American psychologists yielded to homosexual activist pressure (pardon the word picture) and stopped listing homosexuality for the deviant and delusional behavior it is.

That is the problem with the left.

There was a time when the word liberal would have meant men like Truman, Eisenhower, Scoop Jackson, John Kennedy, heck even men like Nixon and Ford. People that, rightly or wrongly, tried to make it so that the common man had a fair shake.

Today’s left is characterized by a moral vacuum where any deviance is exhalted and foolish nihilism and untenable pacifism are praised.

AIDS was created by the gay bathouse movement.

It probably started as some mutant strain of a relatively harmless passenger virus. Then with the opportunity to spread rapidly via contact with other humans bodily fluid, it flourished and because it could quickly spread and survive the host’s survival became unimportant, thus even more deadly strains survived.

This is just my guess, but it is based on studies of fluid borne diseases in South America. It was discovered that more virulent strains were present in a country without modern water treatment facilities than in a country with modern facilities.

while I agree with about virulence and the role of the bath houses, the AIDS virus originated in monkeys.

Somehow the AIDS virus jumps the monkey human barrier, then homosexuals did their very best to spread it around ( and increase its virulence, as you pointed out.)
