I was thinking... if a farmer has all his animals male, then he would want to change some of it to female so that the animals could reproduce. But, i think buying another animal would be cheaper than those animal-change-gender surgery,

why waste money on your pet's gender?

if you want a girl or boy pet, go to the petstore, it's a lot cheaper than transgender surgery

or better yet, have your pet have babies with someone else's pet...a lot easier and you don't spend!

It wouldn't be smart to do that. We can't understand what animals want, so changing their sex just because we feel like it is extremely selfish on the owners part and doesn't make any sense. Get a pet with the gender you want, but don't force it to get a change of gender.

Naw. Its completely pointless.

Its just like when they cloned the cat.

If they really wanted more cats in the world they would stop spaying and neutering their cats.

It's true it's cruel etc and what not, but for breed purposes i'm sure it's a good thing.
I'd be against it, but this stuff happens all the time so....

Well, there’re way too many protandry (fish that start male and turn female,) and protogyny (the opposite) to really list them all. I suppose if you’re interested in this you should research the reefs at the equator… Only a very small number of fish are gonochoristic. (Gonochoristic means that they stay the same sex at all times.)

The reefs are absolutely fascinating. I’m freaked out by water so I’ll probably never get to see one except on T.V…but they’re beautiful, and absolutely interesting. One example is that reefs aren’t plants-they’re semi-stationary animals. They release sperm and or eggs into the stream and let the currents carry them. The floating clouds of sperm fertilize the eggs.

Because there are so many different but closely related species of reef in a small area this often causes cross-breeding which inexorably creates -new- species of reefs that we’ve never seen before.

Another awesome thing is that there are myriads of various sea-horses that have evolved to take the colors and characteristics of different reefs. Every different reef has it’s own sea-horse.







My hands-down favorite characteristic of reef “cities,” however, is that reefs and animals fight for each other. One example is that shrimps/crabs live inside reefs, and when a rival reef attacks their home they defend it. However, when the attacking reef also has shrimps/crabs they actually fight each other. It’s almost like a battle with portable castles. XD



Well, we’re getting off topic. Do you think people have the right to change the sex of their animals, even if the animal isn’t naturally predisposed to it?
