Campaign to save ‘gay’ bull from slaughter receives homophobic abuse

Aaron Day November 17, 2014

A fundraising campaign to save Benjy the “gay bull” from slaughter has received homophobic backlash and abuse on social media.

The fundraising campaign to save the expensive Charolais bull was started by TheGayUK and Ireland’s Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN).

It came after a farmer in Ireland said he would send Benjy to the slaughterhouse for showing more interest in other bulls than with cows.

So far, the campaign has received over £3,500 of its £5,000 target.

However, several commentators on YouTube and other social media have been vocal in their opposition, TheGayUK reports.

HH500 on YouTube said: “There are wars going on in the world and you filthy cream puff queers are going on about saving a faggot bull, how about this? Cull the damn bull and lynch you dirty fags. PROBLEM SOLVED.”

 

linkrock123 added: “Disgusting fuckers. An animal cannot be homosexual. If it willingly chooses to ‘breed’ with a male, it’s because the animal has a mental deficiency. Animals breed to reproduce, nothing else. Perverted freaks.”

Homosexual behaviour has been observed in a number of species in the animal kingdom.

A journal earlier this year reported the first known instance of two male brown bears engaging in oral sex.

The zookeepers wrote: “In the case reported here, the provider may have found a substitute for teat‐sucking that also resulted in a let‐down of substitute ‘milk’.”
