I wasn't really sure whether to put this here or in Politics/Religion/etc, but I suppose it's science related more than anything. Anyways, I was wondering what people thought of school dissections of animals, seeing as most members of this community are otherkin/therian? I'm curious about opinions on school dissections in particular, since students oftentimes don't have a choice in the matter. I know a lot of people feel strongly about it outside of the community, but I don't think I've ever seen a discussion on an otherkin forum. I personally live in an area with laws mandating alternate assignments for students who object to dissections, so I always either watched or took an alternate assignment depending on whether actual participation in dissections was required.
