Comment of my fb friend:

"It is morally wrong to do anything to a being with preferences, who would be capable of granting or withholding consent if they had sufficient cognitive capacity, if it harms them, if they do not consent and would not have consented under idealised circumstances. It is also morally wrong to financially support people in doing so when you can reasonably avoid it. For this reason rape, buying meat, and some but not all instances of bestiality are morally wrong.
No-one who is not vegan is in a position to criticize people who practice bestiality."

Reply welcome.

Hi Vlastimil. Thanks for the comment.

>>"It is morally wrong to do anything to a being with preferences, who would be capable of granting or withholding consent if they had sufficient cognitive capacity, if it harms them, if they do not consent and would not have consented under idealised circumstances.<<

False! It is morally permissible to shoot a home invader who poses a credible threat to oneself or to one's family members.

>>No-one who is not vegan is in a position to criticize people who practice bestiality<<

False! See arguments above.
