I am gemused to read that the Journal of Animal Ethics, published by the University of Illinois Press, recently stated that animals should not be described as "vermin", "pests" or even "pets".
Seemingly these and similar words, used to describe animals, are "derogatory".
Maybe, one day, we will use less "derogatory" words to describe animals. However, until we start treating fellow human beings with decency, this is a step too far at the moment.
