Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?
I like the idea but... doesn't it lead to simply dividing animals into those we own and those we admit can be our friends? Because we do not GUARD hens in birds farms, we OWN them. And whatever the humanistic minority would say about it, the majority is for OWNING at least some animals. And then, where should this division be placed?
