    Yale hosts workshop teaching sensitivity to bestiality

    Event director Giuliana Berry ’14 told Campus Reform in an interview on Monday that the workshop was brought to campus to teach students not to automatically judge people who may have engaged in these sorts of activities, but rather to respond with “understanding” and “compassion.”

    "People do engage in some of these activities that we believe only for example perverts engage in,” she said. “What the goal is is to increase compassion for people who may engage in activities that are not what you would personally consider normal.”

    McDevitt referred to the range of activities discussed in the workshop as “sexual diversity.”

    “It tries to get people to be more sensitive … to sexual diversity,” McDevitt told Campus Reform in an interview on Monday. “We’re not all heterosexual, able-bodied folks who have standard missionary sex.”

    Several students submitted discussion topics about having incestuous sexual fantasies. Attendee Alex Saeedy '15, told the News that he at first found this surprising, but then "thought it might be more of a psychological thing we all might have.

    "I think that's what the point of the workshop was — to bring up things we thought we so taboo and desire or urges we criticize are just regular parts of sexual psychology," he said.

    During the workshop, McDevitt taught the approximately 40 students that just because people think something is deviant does not mean that it is bad.

    “It’s sensitivity training,” McDevitt told Campus Reform. “Don't judge other people, because we all have something we are embarrassed about.”

    It's true. Once 40 students attend a workshop led by a sexologist, the next thing that happens is that everybody will start marrying animals.

I think the country has forgotten what the Civil War was about.. it wasn't just about freeing or keeping slavery.. It was primarily in the beginning about the ability of each state to choose for themselves..
    It doesn't make sense to me to have this vary by state. If I get married in China or France, I'm still married in America. How can it be that if I get married in New York, I'm not married in another part of the same country? It's completely illogical.

    Yes, there are always reasons for bigotry. It doesn't mean they are the right reasons.

    I think the way you are interpreting my love for the reference and how it applies to homosexuality/gay marriage isn't accurate.

    An animal cannot enter into a contract, an animal cannot agree to be loving and supportive....I hate that argument.

    A child cannot either.

    There is not going to be a push towards non consenting people being able to be married.

    I often find that progressive thinking and forward-looking attitudes do better for society that those who are constantly looking to the past for answers with the 'that's the way it's always been and always shall be' attitude. Nobody needs a history lesson, thanks.

    I don't know Jess. You saw how letting the women folk get the vote led directly to barnyard animals being able to vote. It was a direct case of the ole slippery slope. I understand how these same people fear that if we let the gays marry it will lead directly to the barnyard animals getting to marry, as well. Their logic makes a lot of sense.
