    Oh, ****.

    Are you a Francione fan?
    No. I don't know what that is.

    I like to think they're just another member of the family. Not property. What pisses me off is people who go to a breeder to buy a puppy as a birthday present for their spoilt brat toddler daughter.
    Yes, family.. <3 The idea of adopting a cat or a dog as a present is also disgusting to me... Cats/dogs are not are NOT presents. I doubt anyone would say that an adopted human child is a present. What makes it okay to say that adopting a nonhuman animal and giving it a better life is a present?!

    Gary Francione, law professor and animal rights activist. Unlike most animal "welfarists", he's against ownership of animals. Even, in the end, keeping them as "pets". Look him up maybe.

    Oh, I see.

    I am okay with caring for other animals. I have a huge hatred for the term owner... Other animals are also alive like us, I do not think we have the right to say we "own" them.
