Seems entirely fair if I’m honest about it

Disturbing moment a bull MOUNTS a stricken female bullfighter after knocking her to the ground in the middle of a fight
As the fighter goads the bull with her cape he suddenly charges at her
She falls to the ground and he instantly climbs on top of her and starts thrusting
The crowd shriek in horror as two others drag the bull away and help her up

So you’re trying to kill me are you? You can’t complain about a little bit of rape before you do then, can you?

  1. A bull fight took a horrible turn when the beast began mounting the female bullfighter

    So the problem wasn’t the woman trying to kill the bull or the bull trying to kill the woman, it was that he got a little bit on bovine-on-bimbo love going on? It would have been *less* shocking if the bull stuck a horn in the woman than his penis?

    It could just be me but I would think that the attempted lovin’ was the least disturbing, the least horrible thing going on.

  2. They’ll have to extend the BLTNBGPDQ list for bullish lovers of human female dwarfs. Otherwise how could the bull be allowed to marry her?

  3. Why was a female dwarf fighting a young bull? Very odd. Is there some equal access programme in Spanish bull-fighting? Perhaps bull-fighters in wheelchairs could fight hobbled bulls?

    Evidently, the bull liked the dwarf’s pheromones. Perhaps she was ovulating.

  4. Theophrastus – “Possibly, HBO were filming a scene for ‘Game of Thrones’…”

    Am I the only one who finds that dwarf annoying? I might actually watch a bull introducing him to the love that cannot speak its name. Because, obviously, cattle are mute.

  5. It sounds like some ghastly caper from the Roman arena where donkeys were trained ( with apparently great difficulty) to rape human females.

    Possibly the bull knew by scent she was female?

    Whatever–another well-deserved black eye for Spanish culture.

  6. Always been my POV – if you want to go and senselessly kill a bull for entertainment fine. Just don’t come whinging if he strikes back

  7. “Whatever–another well-deserved black eye for Spanish culture.”

    Ah, yes, Spanish culture. A Spaniard and 15 of his mates climb on the same donkey and goad it up a mountain with sharpened sticks.

    Then they throw it off the top and set off some fireworks before drinking wine and falling asleep.

  8. Mr Ecks – “It sounds like some ghastly caper from the Roman arena where donkeys were trained ( with apparently great difficulty) to rape human females.”

    Sexual acts with donkeys seem to be an urban legend. Penetrative acts anyway. I am dubious. But then I wouldn’t have thought that bulls would be all that into it either.

  9. Sexual acts with donkeys seem to be an urban legend. Penetrative acts anyway.

    As far as Catherine the Great is concerned, yes – urban legend. However, I once found an email in my spam folder entitled ‘Russian Farm Girls’ which contained pictures that seemed to confirm the practice is possible.

  10. What’s wrong with Spanish culture, Ecksy? I live there for three months of the year, and the culture is fine – decent food, excellent wine, interesting landscapes, good historic architecture, some very fine painting, and very welcoming, tolerant people. I wouldn’t want to live there full-time – not least because of the corruption.

  11. For the other nine months of the year the food is crap, the wine goes sour, the landscape burns and the architecture is all blown up by the builders and restorers guild.

  12. “Am I the only one who finds that dwarf annoying?”

    I find the dwarf the most interesting character in GoT.

  13. It sounds like some ghastly caper from the Roman arena where donkeys were trained ( with apparently great difficulty) to rape human females.

    Bulls too…reenaction of some Roman legend about one of the gods appearing as a bull and impregnating some woman.

  14. @Theo

    Gasp – you don’t say!

    You should apply for the position of spotter-in-chief of amusing bollocks with the society of amusing bollock spotters.

  15. Theophrastus – “I find the dwarf the most interesting character in GoT.”

    I don’t know. I used to as well. Then I decided that the writers were being extremely manipulative towards their b0ll0ck-less eunuch. Shamefully staking the deck in his favour when a more objective eye might think he is a sh!t.

    Then it occurred to me that much the same was true of the dwarf as well. Yes, his father didn’t like him. He is still a rather nasty and unpleasant person.

    Tim Newman – “He’s certainly the only actor.”

    You think? He is better than the Mother of Dragons. But they both have all the writers giving them so much. It takes little effort to actually act when everything is stacked your way. I am much more impressed with someone who can take a role which the writers hate or are indifferent to and make something of it. Tywin was a much more interesting person than Tyrion.

    But then the amazing thing about GoT is how some actors can take a role that the writers give everything to and still make the characters unpleasant. Brienne is a very good example.

  16. “The crowd shriek in horror”

    Reason #445 why we had to Brexit. Europeans just aren’t like us. A British crowd would have laughed and cheered.

  17. So let me get this straight: Female bullfighter and crowd has their fun interrupted when the farm animal she’s trying to slaughter (again, for funsies) decides to get a quick shag in before ringing down the curtain, joining the choir invisible, and becoming an ex-bull?

    Yet another reminder that, in the final analysis, wogs are wogs.

  18. SMFS: part of the point of GoT is that none of the characters is likeable: it portrays a barbarian, warrior culture. Henry James or Jane Austen it isn’t.

    TN: “He’s certainly the only actor.”

    I’d say Kit Harrington, Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Richard Madden, Diana Rigg et al prove you wrong. That said, Emilia Clarke is fairly dire.

  19. Ok. I doubt i’d ever go to a bullfight but if you were a newborn bull and somehow could understand what your human handler was saying when he gave you the choice of a couple of years being pampered followed by being slaughtered or immediate slaughter I guess I would chose the former.

    Hey, I could say to myself in bull language, you never know I might get to shag a dwarf.

  20. Which three months, Theo?

    The Madrileños describe their climate as “three months of rain and nine months of hell”.

  21. Most of the best bullfighters died in the ring (pendants will point out that Manolete was carried away to hospital to die, but that’s a technicality). So screams over this?

  22. Theo,

    You’re the first person I’ve ever heard say Kit Harrington can act. Most people I know think he’s in the show because the girls like his hair.

  23. Tim N
    Well, Kit Harington has appeared in a fair few films and plays, and I think he’s quite convincing in GoT, but I can see what some people wouldn’t like about him. Emilia Clarke is the flakey one. Nice tits, though.

  24. Theophrastus – “part of the point of GoT is that none of the characters is likeable: it portrays a barbarian, warrior culture.”

    Is that the point? Perhaps, but it heavily weights the scales in favour of some characters and against others. The dwarf is a good example, and so is the eunuch. They get the best lines and we are supposed to sympathise with them because of the unfortunate physical burdens they carry. The High Sparrow on the other hand – because Hollywood writers hate Christians – is someone we are supposed not to like. Although they badly miscast him. Pryce could go a good 20th century Anglican priest but Torquemada he is not and he cannot be.

    They are not subtle.

  25. Theophrastus

    “Well, Kit Harington has appeared in a fair few films and plays, and I think he’s quite convincing in GoT”

    He always seems to have an expression of someone who’s just been offered a cup of instant coffee when he really wanted a double mocca caramel latte. He acts at about the level of Orlando Bland.

  26. On a very slight point of order:
    There seems to be a general assumption, here, that this bull was being “fought” & was destined for a fatal end.
    Spanish bullfighting aficionados take the matter very seriously. There’s as much respect for the bull as the matador because confronting a powerful & aggressive bull is a test of his bravery & skill.
    So no. I haven’t been able to find an account in the Spanish press, but I’d guess the only one in any danger here was the dwarf with an immature animal. It was a performance. Being played for laughs. Killing the animal would have been demeaning for all involved.

  27. SMFS
    Surely all authors or stories weight the scales in favour of some characters. And I thought the High Sparrow was presented as part saint and part theocrat. But GoT is merely entertainment. I fear you are slipping into a right-wing version of leftist ‘cultural criticism’. Though, that said, Hollywood is undoubtedly ripe for an Ecksian purge.

  28. Theophrastus – “Surely all authors or stories weight the scales in favour of some characters.”

    As I said, they are not all repulsive. Not by a long shot.

    “And I thought the High Sparrow was presented as part saint and part theocrat.”

    Sure but badly. It is impossible to believe in the Sparrow’s power because it is impossible to believe in his faith. He is a waste of time. Because Pryce can’t do it. No one could these days I expect.

    “But GoT is merely entertainment. I fear you are slipping into a right-wing version of leftist ‘cultural criticism’.”

    As Andrew Breitbart said, politics is downstream culture. Nothing is mere entertainment.

  29. “He acts at about the level of Orlando Bland.”

    Perhaps, but I think he is well cast. In any event, Tim N’s claim that the dwarf (Peter Dinklage?) is the only actor in GoT is disproved by the other actors I listed above.

  30. SMFS

    “As Andrew Breitbart said, politics is downstream culture. Nothing is mere entertainment.”

    A grim and inflexible view, making the sphere of politics all-embracing. That means that every voluntary association, even for entertainment, is in some way political – including allotments, bird watching, fox hunting, etc. Bizarre and potentially totalitarian.
