As many of you know, I fight online against animal abuse. I sign a bazillion petitions each day for different causes. While wearisome, it is something I’m incredibly passionate about, and I’m immensely consumed by it.
So many of these petitions seek maximum legal penalty against convicted animal abusers. Seeing all of this, and also seeing all of the spay/neuter propaganda (which I believe in as well), a new thought has come to me today. What I’m about to propose is something radical and (currently) unconstitutional.
I propose convicted animal abusers be spayed or neutered so they can’t create any more people with their damaged mental facilities. Some animal abusers might be genetically geared to do what they do, and some might be taught these things by their elders. Either way, denying them procreative rights should substantially break the cycle, and would be a more than fair treatment for the suffering and possible death they’ve caused.
It’s been talked about, I’m sure, doing such medical procedures on convicted rapists, murderers, and abusers of children and others (which I think I agree with as well, especially with the former and latter). This is just another progressive step in that line of thinking. Maybe one the best ways to prevent animal abuse will be to limit the birth rate of animal abusers….
Note: Just so you all know, I didn’t get Furgii pissed off here. Her teeth were dry and one side of her lips got hung up on them. I simply tucked the other side under to give her a “mad face”. 🙂
I think this would work as a solution for all abusers. I read somewhere that China executed all drug dealers and users and they wiped out the drug trade completely. I don’t know how true this is or if it still holds true today. Oh well, we can dream.
You’re right, I’m going to edit the post to include abusers! I can’t believe I missed that, especially with my background. Talk about tunnel-vision….
There are angels on this earth and we are fighting the good fight against evil. Keep up the great work, Fox.
I agree totally with this. Animal abuse should equal human abuse by neutering, !
LOL it’s idealistic, but in a society where a teacher could get fired for knocking down a high school student that is attacking them, I fear we have no chance
I said all of this with a little bit of tongue-in-cheek. I’d love to see it happen for convicted abusers, of animals, children, or other adults. It’ll never happen (unless some Orwellian drama consumes us), so it was a “venting” piece. C’mon, Orwell!
