I guess the difference is that it is an animal vs inanimate objects being molded into plates or plants. I’m not an animal rights activist but undeniably, there is something about animals that hits us differently than just pulling carrots out of the ground.
No, socially conditioned revulsion is not the angle I’m looking at. Vietnamese cook dogs and Americans are repulsed by it. Americans eat the egg yolks of chickens and some cultures find it sickening to eat unborn chickens. Those are learned social responses. I get that.
I was wondering if the exposure to modern corporate slaughter changes perspective on eating meat, or respect for animals, or whatever. Are there any good reasons and does it make children (ultimately society) better for it? I guess you are saying no.
Children on the farm used to see their parents slaughter their livestock. *Was something lost now that cows and pigs are processed en masse behind closed doors? * Does that insulation from the messiness of killing animals cheapen life and does it matter?
I’m undecided on this one.
When I was 12, my mother and I saw a film of a baby coming out of a vagina. I saw a similar graphically detailed film being 15 in high school. I think it’s a good idea.
To be honest, I don’t know if there really is objection. It’s not something that’s actively been asked or pursued so I wouldn’t know if 99% of parents would object.
