36. Isn't strange how sensitivity works?
If you announced on DU that you were killing your dog because
he had behavioral problems, DU'ers would be horrified.
But because he is a rooster, you get tips for efficient killing
and jokes about killing.

Is the rooster less sentient or does he have less of a right to
live than your dog? Not really, we humans just arbitrarily decide.
