…Being a “zoophile” in modern American society, Beck says, is “like being gay in the 1950s. You feel like you have to hide, that if you say it out loud, people will look at you like a freak.”
Now Beck believes he and other members of this minority sexual orientation, who often call themselves “zoos,” can follow the same path as the gay rights movement. Most researchers believe 2 to 8 percent of the population harbors forbidden desires toward animals, and Beck hopes this minority group can begin appealing to the open-minded for acceptance.
But if those like Beck are to make the same gains as gays, it’s apparent they will have to do so without the help of gay rights groups, which so far want nothing to do with a zoophile movement.
What’s more, they will have to wage battle with well-funded and politically connected animal-protection activists.
And the most difficult task will be to take possession of their public image…
Fascinating to watch our morally, intellectually, and spiritually impoverished culture trying to figure out a way to oppose this and failing, since our entire framework for adjudicating such matters consists of the barren conviction that consent is the sole criterion of the good (so if the dog is enamored of your leg…), plus “whatever feels good is good”. The concept of “unnatural” has been exorcised by the enemies of the natural and cannot come riding to the rescue now–unless, of course we want to make a full return to the pagan and Catholic tradition of natural law.
