Stop Crush Videos!
Crush videos -- also known as squish or trampling videos -- cater to fetishists who gain sexual gratification from watching women torture and kill small animals by stepping on them.
Crush Videos are films that depict women (often wearing high heels) crushing or trampling objects. Although such videos typically use inanimate objects like food, some of them include live animals as the objects being crushed. In one, a scantily clad women with a small kitten at first gently caressing the animal's fur. She then begins stomping on the kitten with her high-heeled shoes, crushing its body and head and leaving it in a lifeless, bloody heap.
As unbelievable as this may seem, and despite federal legislation prohibiting this type of animal cruelty, crush videos have gained a market among the disturbed cyber sadists. With the explosive growth of peer-to-peer file sharing networks, the availability and production of crush videos is likely to spread if not aggressively opposed.
