Podcast #67: Killing Mosquitos and Eating Oysters: How Vegan Are You?
Do bugs feel pain? Most entomologists will say insects do not have pain receptors and cannot suffer since they don’t have emotions. So does that mean it’s okay to kill them? Well we don't think so. And eff you, entomologists!
Then again, We ALL kill mosquitos. Yes, even vegans. But isn't that a little hypocritical of us?
Truthfully, it was all "grey area" info we didn't even understand very well. Therefore it was clearly a topic we Shorkey sisters needed to explore to get the straight goods. And share with our podcast listeners obviously!
But what about you, fellow veeg? What do you think? Do insects feel pain? Is it okay to kill them? And is it okay to eat them? Or oysters for that matter?
These are the questions we are asking (and answering) on episode 67. Have a listen and please let us know YOUR thoughts on the matter!
