Writer's Block: Pet central

Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?



European and American troops are beating, raping, and killing innocent Iraqis in the streets of their own country.

Civil war rages on in the Democratic Republic of Congo over mines that supply the materials for our cell phones, iPods, and laptops.

The state of Arizona has passed a law that makes it illegal for people of Latina descent to be in public without proof of their American citizenship.


Fighting to replace the term "owner" with "guardian" is not a mission. It's a game for people who want to play the hero, but don't want to face real suffering.

Exactly.
To call themselves 'activists' is a joke & an affront to those that actually make an effort to change things for the better. Instead of playing with words & their various meanings subject to context, they'd be better off handing their contacts, grants & the like over to someone who's going to actually do GOOD with it.

Thank you! Gods, I love animals but people have some fucked up priorities.
