My Disturbing Behavior Paper is on the issue of, “Teens and Bestiality.” According to The Humane Society of Southern Arizona, “bestiality” is defined as, “The sexual molestation of an animal by a human. This can include a variety of behaviors, including vaginal, anal, or oral penetration; fondling; oral-genital contact; penetration using an object; and killing or injuring an animal for sexual gratification. Animal sexual abuse, like rape, is the eroticization of violence, control and exploitation.” There are a few articles that I will use to assist my paper. The first article is from the Miami New Times. According to the news article, during his sophomore year, Cody Beck, now 18years of age admitted to his classmates that he is, “sexually attractive to dogs and horses.” Beck who is openly bisexual, said he told his classmates his secret just for the hell of it.
According to Beck, 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.” Beck believes that he and the small sexual orientation; that by the way refer to themselves as “zoos,” can follow the same route as the Gay Rights Movement.
Another article in regards to the disturbing behavior of bestiality is from the Metro West Daily News. It is the case of an 18 year old Sherborn teen that was caught on camera having sex with a sheep. According to police, Roger Henderson II, 18, was arraigned yesterday in Natick District Court on charges of bestiality, cruelty to animals and breaking and entering in connection with an incident police say took place at Boggastow Farm on June 27, 2009.
In regards to another article, in Spartanburg, South Carolina, a teen is accused of raping a neighbor's dog and another neighbor's two little girls. Now the dog has died due to the rape and charges against the teen have been upgraded. According to the Solicitor’s Office, the charges were upgraded to the "most serious animal cruelty charges they have on the books."
According to The Humane Society of Southern Arizona, “Hard statistics on zoophilia are difficult to obtain, but estimates have placed the percentage of males who sexually abuse animals as high as 65%.” Also, attempts by law enforcements and psychiatrists to retrieve information about sexual assault on animals from professional criminals have been mostly unsuccessful. Most criminals will hide or deny any such contact, similar to their reactions when asked about child molestation.
There are consequences to this type of sex crime. The perpetrators usually get sentenced to jail; but according to World Net Daily, four State Legislators in Massachusetts have introduced Senate bill 938.  According to the local newspaper, Boston’s Weekly Dig, "The bill would strike down several sections of the current penal code criminalizing adultery, fornication and the advertisement of abortion," the reported stated. "It also repeals what appears to be a sodomy statute forbidding 'abominable and detestable crime against nature, either with mankind or with a beast.'
While the bill would keep bestiality technically illegal, it gives the option of less severe penalties. Previously, those convicted of "a sexual act on an animal" could receive up to 20 years in prison. The local weekly paper explains that, "The new measure would give activist judges the option of slapping perps with a mere two and a half years in plush local jails, or even letting zoophiliacs walk with a $5,000 fine." Also this type of sex crime can have other consequences such as “health” related. Having sex with animals can expose one to worms, ticks and scabies.
It is written in Leviticus 20:15, “And if a man lies with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.” This world is surely likening unto the times of Noah. Bestiality is a spiritual disease which manifests in the physical. Only a person who is NOT connected spiritually with The Father would consider doing this, and even does it. This type of sex “sin” is purely demonic plain and simple. The ones that have this problem should immediately seek spiritual help! Speaking to a youth minister, pastor, praying & fasting would help bring about a righteous solution. All of the ancient sins have come upon us today for the same reason they came upon those in ancient times…because we turned away from The Most High and in order to remove these sicknesses be it mental, physical or spiritual, we MUST return unto Him once again and this time remain there.
