Re: EXPLOITATION!!!

When I go shopping, I exploit the store. That is, I use the store to get things that I want for my own benefit as a result of my own greed. However, the store benefits. In fact, in a way the store could be said to be exploiting me, and exploiting my desire to own their products, in order to get the...

Re: Bringing Up Dead Baby

Wait, so she miscarries, but decides to bring the (dead) baby up anyway? Or am I misunderstanding the plot? Miscarriage means the fetus is expelled... in this story it dies, she still carries it to term, then it becomes undead... Oh! Well that's good then. So she ends up living happily ever after w...

Re: Raising chickens: Is it ethical?

All children are either: 1) intentionally conceived 2) accidentally conceived If ever the former, those kids were had to fulfill the parents' own selfish desires to have kids. Otherwise, there would be no point in having them. that couldnt be further from the truth. there just so happens to be many...

Wow, when you put it that way, maybe they deserve captivity... I definitely don't support rape. But not all dolphins are rapists, right?

Re: Is it ethical to go swimming with dolphins?

Well, more like... one... but yeah. It is estimated that around the world, about 53 billion animals are killed for food purposes every year. But that's not including fish and other aquatic animals who, according to some researchers, also die in the tens of billions, bringing the whole figure close ...

Re: Large-scale protest against PETA for torture & exploitation!

The most precise way to describe Ingrid's sexism, if one were wishing to point out that Ingrid's supporting a sexist campaign is sexism, would be to say she has internalized sexism. The same dynamic having to do with a person belonging to an oppressed race is internalized racism. One could make the...

Re: Large-scale protest against PETA for torture & exploitation!

I don't think it's sexism. The president of PETA is a female as are some of its supporters/workers/volunteers. People who belong to groups that are looked at though prejudged views, can also have prejudicial views, even about the demographics they belong to. Yes, I am aware. Please see the remainde...

Re: Raising chickens: Is it ethical?

And do we not really do this to fulfill our own selfish desires to have kids? those are called "artifact children." not all children are artifact children, but it seems that more often than not in the west they are, largely in part to cultural and religious factors. All children are eithe...

Re: Raising chickens: Is it ethical?

Raising Humans: Is it Ethical? If you acknowledge that animals are not human property, you cannot justify raising them purely for your own ends, regardless of how "good" or "humane" you treat them. Since we have the right not to be property, such questions don't even arise (eg. ...

Re: Raising chickens: Is it ethical?

it all depends on the motivation. i think that treating animals as property or a commodity is inherently exploitative. its not really an argument per se. Hm? I'm not treating them as property. If I were I'd keep them on a shelf in the closet, like I do my other belongings. To me, I am having troubl...
