Bad Ideas and Bad Decisions

Amy Graves admitted having sex with a dog.

Amy Graves, 43, was arrested in February after Mississippi police say video of her having sex with a dog was posted on social media. Last month, Graves admitted her crime and was sentenced to counseling.

In Minnesota, U.S. Postal Service employee Brian Chapman, 21, was arrested after a homeowner — suspicious as to why the mailman kept entering his garage to deliver packages — checked his home surveillance video and saw Chapman committing a sexual act with his dog, police say.

Amanda Leigh McClammy, 32, and her husband were arrested in Tempe, Arizona, after a domestic violence incident. Ms. McClammy’s husband told police that his wife had a video on her cellphone that showed her having sex with a dog. Police charged her with bestiality.

That’s three different dog-sex cases already this year, and you may recall more than a dozen such stories I recapped for 2016. Why do people do these things? What is the thought process that leads someone to say, “Hey, that dog’s looking kinda sexy”? Bad decisions begin with bad ideas, and my curiosity about the psychology of dog-sex perpetrators is related to my research into radical feminism. Scouring around the Internet the other day, I encountered this headline:


Speaking as a professional journalist with more than 30 years experience, permit me to say, that headline works. What is the purpose of a headline? To make you read the story, and with a headline like that, how could I possibly not read the story? But the question I kept asking was, why?

Why would a young woman write a story like that and put it on the Internet for everybody in the world to read? It’s like dog sex. Whatever thought process leads someone to having sex with a dog, I can’t explain, but why do so many of the dog-sex criminals record videos of their crimes? Rachael Alexis Harris and her husband, Corey Dean Harris, for example, were arrested in December for recording sex videos with their dog. Likewise, Miranda Johns, 21, was arrested last year after police found videos on her boyfriend’s cellphone of her having sex with dogs.

While I do not mean to say that sex with dogs is analogous to a young feminist deciding to explore her “bisexuality,” it is her decision to share this exploration with the entire world that gives me pause. Thank God there was no Internet or digital video during my youth. What would I have been posting online back in the day? The thought terrifies me, and what’s going on with young people now should concern everyone. The explosion of social media in recent years seems to have short-circuited some people’s instinct for self-preservation. The author of that article about bisexuality, Misha Scott, is a recent graduate of Loyola Marymount University, where the annual tuition is $44,238. You might think that someone who paid so much to be educated at a prestigious university would have enough common-sense concern for her reputation that she wouldn’t be recounting her sexual adventures at a site called However, feminism has nothing to do with common sense:

Unless a publisher is going to pay me enough money to flee the country, change my identity and live a life of luxury on the tropical island paradise of Vanuatu, I’m invoking the Fifth Amendment. In fact, I’m prepared to deny any allegation that I’ve ever had sex with anyone. Oh, sure, my wife and I have six children, but do you have a subpoena requiring me to provide a DNA sample for testing purposes? No, you don’t, and so on the advice of my attorney, Bert the Samoan Lawyer, I am going to refuse either to confirm or deny anything about my sex life, period. . . .
The Let-Me-Tell-You-About-My-Sex-Life variety of feminism strikes me as both self-indulgent and potentially self-destructive. However, because “the personal is political,” as pioneering feminist Carol Hanisch declared, the Internet is crammed full of startling confessions by young women telling us more than we want to know about their sexual preferences and activities. . . .

You can read the whole thing at The Patriarch Tree.

It’s 7,000 words long, and I regret writing at such length, but I’ve grown so sick and tired of this ridiculous Third Wave feminist lunacy that once I get started, these Gonzo rants just seem to write themselves.
