>>9458> As domestic animals have been breed to be agreeable to humans (and perhaps they also find living with/under humans more agreeable than their wild ancestors would), it might be possible to continue to breed pets, maybe with better understandings of what the animals need.
i'm thinking on the lines that a pet isn't really given an option outside of living in captivity. Now we think this contents the animal as a number of animals seem comfortable in accepting their fate, but that might change.
We have come from accepting circuses and Sea World, to understanding that they do harm. We could probably also see this evolution towards zoos, once though as a gift to study and preserve animals.
But pets wouldn't be too far off from that either.> What do you think might change?
At some point, I would guess age to just be a number and the kids getting the agency to decide when they want to do stuff. either sexually, but even on the level of education. (maybe at some point we'd say "kids have just as much right to choose not to not go to school and to work in factories again")
At that point, society might consider a crime against pedophiles, even those who actively seek physical contact, on the same level as homophobia.
I do speak from my fear/prediction for a future. not saying that this is the case now or advocating that it should be.
