Question by Been There: “Crush videos”, dog fights and the 1st Amendment. Did you know?
This what crush videos are:
“…crush videos,” in which women stomp on small animals with their feet in a manner that some people find sexually arousing.” [Business Week; 4/20/10]

The videos were first targeted by Congress in 1999. This week’s Supreme Court ruling against banning video-posted dog fights was based on it.

This more fully describes the problem with the1999 law (WARNING – I think there is a photo of a kitten on the top right corner of the page. I couldn’t bare to really look at it):

“Crush Videos: Animal Torture and Murder as a Fetish” – Published May 22, 2007 by: Laura Brady
“Crush videos are film for fetishists who can only achieve sexual gratification by seeing a woman in high heels torture and dominate an animal and finally kill it by viciously crushing it. It is an obscenity that has been around for many years but with the internet it is almost impossible to stop the proliferation and publication of these videos.”

Is there a way to balance Free Speech and the creating, selling or showing these videos?

Best answer:

Answer by Glenn Beck Teabagged Me!
Free speech becomes illegal when you start to break other laws. In this case, animal cruelty.

Question by Roxie Knightly: My dog “paws” people when he wants attention…?
I own a yellow lab golden mix. I’ve had him for about 3 year now and he has a habit of pawing people when he wants to be patted. I know this behavior is caused beause he just wants a lot of attention and love, which of course he gets, but it’s not very good habit either. I’d think if i stopped patting him as much he’d stop, but i think that could make it worst too. First he paws, then if he doesn’t get petted still, he licks, then he nudges you and goes under your arm or something when your doing something. I’ve gotten a few scratches from his pawing and so has some of my my guests i’ve had at the house. Any way to break this bad habit?

Best answer:

Answer by BoxerPitRhodesian
Forcing attention and forcing people to pet him is a form of dominance. When he does it, grab his snout and say no firmly. Don’t be mean, just be firm. Try not petting him when he tries to force you. i would make sure that he knows he will get pet when you ‘the alpha’ says its ok.

When guests come in, they will be viewed as your guests and will most likely stop pawing them if he’s not pawing you!

good luck with the training!
