I like that! I try my best not to refer to animals as its, although I slip up every now and then. I mean that's what I was taught in grade school grammer, so it's pretty deeply engrained.

I hate the term pet owner. I know a lot of people don't see a difference, but I really do think that it affect the way people view animals.

My uncle in law knows I am really big into animal rights, and he is an avid hunter. He always makes sure to say "harvesting" in front of me, like that is supposed to make me feel better about it.

I'm not too sure what they mean about euthanizing and putting to sleep. Are they referring just to animal researchers using these terms, or everyone in general? I say euthanizing or putting to sleep, but I use this when refering to suffering animals. I also use it when refering to human euthanasia. I don't think it is that bad when talking about putting a sick animal or person out of their misery.
