Our school’s AP Biology class dissects animal multiple times a week. Their policy on the matter is is pretty much “Don’t like dissection? Don’t take AP Biology.” It sucks because a lot of people become biology majors to help find new ways to reduce both animal and human suffering, but won’t take the classes they need because they are cruel to the very creatures they wish to help.
I’d really like to skip dissections in school, but i’m too chicken to ask. I worry I might get picked on for it considering there aren’t any other animal lovers in my class. I’m sure my boyfriend would support me and all, but I’m afraid my teacher wouldn’t take me seriously. I’m kind of shy too, so that doesn’t really help anything either :/
