I find it disturbing that some find it okay to experiment and learn for yourself by mutilating your animals’ bodies. Fucking up their biology genetically doesn’t excuse making physical alterations to their form in risky medical procedures that you have exactly zero training for. (I don’t care how simple an alteration it is, it is surgery, and there’s a lot that can go wrong.)
I’m just going to draw a line there. I’m unfollowing those that think that’s okay. I don’t really care if you think less of me for drawing that line, because honestly I think less of you for not. Harsh but true. I feel strongly about this. Maybe lets not mutilate our animals, that can’t show us the pain we’re putting them through. If fish could scream you wouldn’t do it.
I am all about community discussion, learning, and growth. But learning should not come at the expense of your animals. That is irresponsible on so many levels. Don’t experiment dangerously on your pets. That’s kind of fucked up.
