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?
This continues to amaze me. The idea that people would start a battle over this is just ridiculous. I love my pets very much, but sorry, I do own them; I paid for them, I feed them, I scoop their shit, and in return we have a mutually loving relationship. But they still belong to me. The day they start providing my meals and cleaning up after me will be the day we have a 'balanced' relationship. How about focusing on some issues of actual importance, like finding a cure for cancer or easing world hunger? I swear, some people have way too much time on their hands.
