    And What is that?

    We also fit the biological description of poop, being that the same bacteria and organisms that live in a tird also live in us. So are we tirds too?

    I mean, hell, there are plenty of people who pee outside, and a lot of men and women that would love the ability to lick their own genitals as a means to pass time.
    Yes of course. And lol, if that makes them happy...lick away.

    I think though, that the attitude that animals are just food are what has led to such inhumane (and unhealthy) methods of producing food. We raise chickens in such bad conditions that they need drugs to survive to slaughter..... We've gotten to "anything goes" in terms of raising meat that we are beginning to produce a poor quality product that also has a very negative impact on the environment.
    I agree, and I think that mental distancing of humans from animals is just as harmful as the complete removal of humans from the food chain propagated by vegans. I also think that anyone who's spent any length of time camping/hiking/doing survivalist adventures in the great outdoors has a very healthy respect and acceptance of human being as animals. We may be smart enough to build ourselves cell phones and wash our hands after we poop, but we're still part of the animal kingdom.

    We also fit the biological description of poop, being that the same bacteria and organisms that live in a tird also live in us. So are we tirds too?
    You're joking, right? You can't be serious.

    So, if she weighs the same as a duck, then she's made of wood. And therefore... A WITCH!

    Great apologetic there.

    I've known some people that should be described that way . . .

    I am an animal, I respect animals, and I also find them delicious. Of course, given the chance, I also pee outside, so I might not be the best example

    Actually I get what your trying to say Stephanie. In a sentience capacity and in the realm of the being top of the food chain you are correct....we are "superior" to other animals.

    But to define yourself as not an animal is what leads us to many contradictory views in the health field. To suppose that our systems are so vastly different simply due to our "superiority" is what gets us into trouble. I actually think that is the disconnect here. Not that you don't recognize these things, but in the semantics here.
