From Birdpond's blog:
Two assertions long made regarding both trophy hunting and serial killing may have now been shown by science to indeed be related; DMGDS (Diminutive Male Genitalia Disorder Syndrome) and the serial murderers addiction to killing – no matter if the victims are human or non-humans.
The recent war on wolves in the American west, and the rabid, frightening intensity with which so-called ‘sportsmen’ are frothing at the mouth and swarming into the wilderness to blast, arrow, trap, poison and snare grey wolves and other essential predators, illustrates this graphically.
Given an EXCUSE to legally kill wolves or other predators, for instance, the socially malcontent and frustrated use these innocent animals as scapegoats for their personal problems. Just visit YouTube for the graphic and disturbing videos they post of bowhunts, trapped animals suffering while the trappers wax poetic for the video camera; or note in some what seems for all the world like orgasmic moans and screams the moment the hunter’s arrow or bullet strikes an unsuspecting animal.
For a full report on the link between serial killing and trophy hunting please see this post from Howling for Justice. The story contains a well-researched article from famed ‘Lion Man’ and wildlife advocate Gareth Patterson and includes a video on canned lion hunts that I recommend that you watch.
And the oft-heard comment that Big White Hunter must be compensating for a very small ‘package’? Well, that may very well be true. Please see the report from the Diminutive Male Genitalia Disorder Research Foundation, which has found the long-suspected genetic abnormality on the 21st chromosome; an abnormality which implicates ‘under-endowment’ with a psychological need to dominate a helpless victim (Controlled Victim Aggression Manifestation). While this study may have been intended as parody, there’s no denying that ‘real men’ should not have to indulge in deliberate cruelty and sadism to ANY creature, human or non-human, to get their ‘jollies’.
From the evidence it appears both trophy hunters and serial killers are driven by abnormalities of the psyche and not only need help but they need to be removed from mainstream society for the protection of humans, pets and wildlife.
"I have always assumed if your cause was so just, it would be accepted on it's merit's and not on the fact that you have manufactured false claims. I have always felt he same way about religion. If it is all that is claimed, there should be no need to threaten with the damnation of hell, for non believer's and one's that chose to follow a different path. As Birdpond above, and Blogging for the Grey Wolf below, have seemed to stereotype anything, everything, and anybody in the world that they disagree with, and apparently are learned in Sociology as well as Psychology, I would hope they could offer their expertise on Bishop Robert Carlson, Lt. Col. Edward James Corbett, and President Theodore Roosevelt.
Don't assume for a moment that it is the animal activist's that are this ignorant or desperate for their cause. Last week I was involved in a discussion on facebook on a closed group called The Elephant Team, a group "supposedly" interested in preserving and discussing elephant's in captivity including zoo's and circus's. I would have thought that would include me, given I have trained and shown elephants for half my career of 35 years. I found out different when it was suggested that we no longer call an "elephant hook" an elephant hook, and instead unanimously agree to call it only a guide. When I suggested we leave it as it is, least we give the impression that their is something wrong with it, instead of an inept person who may be using it, the comment was met with a barrage of the most vile, evil, sloughing of my character you can ever imagine. Not from animal activists or elephant trainers, but from "with it and for it", never worked or trained an elephant circus groupies(no, they were not fan's. Circus fan's are much different) One was a gay trapeze artist from Europe, one was a dog breeder, an anonymous one was involved with the circus many years ago as a publicist married to the owners son, one knew someone who trained elephants in Canada, and a few other gadjoe's and gunsel's. I exited myself from this group of "experts" immediately because I realized I wasn't qualified to be a member of The Elephant Group. These self righteous, self appointed, self aggrandized "elephant expert's" in their mind think they are helping the elephant cause. Helping as much as Birdpond and Blogging for the Grey Wolf are helping legitimate conservation..............."
