I’m in grade 9, and next term I have science :$ (For those of you who go to a school w/o 2 terms I have two terms, 4 classes the first half of school 4 different ones the next) and lucky me, I get to dissect a worm. Now, I know its “just a worm” but it still is a living creature, and I feel like if i disect it that I’m saying yes to dissection :$ advice? And my cpu crashes everytime I check out peta’s cut out dissection site (its not the site, I have a virus or something :$ cuz i looked at it once. youtube, twitter, and facebook are all the same) and I dont know wether or not there is a worm thing on it..
The “it’s just a worm” is a common excuse by omnis to defend their vile ways. I often say to them “and you’re just a human”. Anyways, it is dissection and you cannot be forced to do it. Ask to do a work sheet instead at the back of the class or a seperate room. Nobody has the right to cut any living creature up whilst it still lives and breathes. Even dead should only be cut up for autopsy reasons.
No need to dissect any animal. That includes worms.
In all things you do, ask yourself if you’re causing pain, suffering or death that you don’t need to cause.
I used to squish ants when I found them near my kitchen sink. Now I put food near their trail outside to draw them all out of the house, then I plug the hole they were coming in through. I even rescue ants that I find trapped in droplets of splashed sink water.
We come into this world compassionate and empathetic but, unfortunately, most of us are coming in to societies and groups that have gone insane (or have been intentionally driven insane).
We are taught to do many things we shouldn’t do and, as we grow older, it’s up to us to seriously question everything we do in order to determine which things we should be doing and which things we shouldn’t be doing.
