Cow means no disrespect to Doghouse, Lord Musgrove and His Supreme Highness Gorilla Bananas, much less to a certain author finding Hope and Whimsy.
By restricting the custom of neutering to dogs, cats, horses, etc., we are essentially crafting a world based on the view of un-neutered males.
A world where doing stuff is used to impress females (huge bridges, buildings, skyscrapers, unneeded dam projects) . A world where the males are always showing up bloodied and injured from fighting over territory. Where males have a short life-span because of their mate-attracting actions. A world with uncontrolled overpopulation.
Were human males neutered upon attaining adolescence, or after freezing some sperm so more children could be put upon a world already groaning from too many people (ooops, Cow's view).
Instead of a world where things are constantly torn down to build more roads, more buildings, bigger ships, faster planes, so men can impress women by doing stuff, driving stuff, flying stuff, building stuff...we might have a prettier world, a nicer world, a less-violent world, and a world a little less teeming with the most rapacious species and more friendly to other living denizens of the earth.
Okay, this world would be less fun for the women. Cow admits it. And less fun for the men. Okay. Okay.
Cow now returns you to your normal Topiary blog.
