    Default Teen changes her name to anti-dissection website

    ASHEVILLE, N.C. - A 19-year-old Asheville teenager said she legally changed her name to Cut Out Dissection // CutOutDissection.com to protest animal dissections in schools.



    The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that Asheville High graduate Jennifer Thornburg now wants to be called Cutout. Her new legal name is the Web address for an anti-dissection page of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' site.
    The teenager said she began opposing dissections in middle school, after a class assignment to dissect a chicken wing made her uncomfortable. She helped create a policy at her high school that allows students who object to dissections to complete an alternative assignment.
    She is now an intern for PETA. She said most of her family members still call her Jennifer.

    You have to do dissection in the US? When I was in high school I got exempt from doing dissection because I though it was cruel and they let me go to the library when they did dissections in class.

    ^^ Umm not us. They dissected a cow eye, a rat and a live frog (they broke the spine before so it wouldn't feel a thing, they wanted to show the effect of adrenaline on a beating heart. I found that really cruel).

    I remember when they did dissections the guys chopped off the rats tails and would keep them until after class and then stick them in our shirts. They would also take something in the eye (I can't remember how it's called in English but in French it's a "crystalin" it's hard and shapped like a mini football.) They'd throw that to each other.

    Or as I call it, lunch.

    Seriously, a chicken wing?

    I was a Bio major, guess that is maybe why I'm not phased by dissection. I enjoyed it.

    I took AP Bio back in high school. We dissected frogs, a pig, a kitten, among others. It wasn't mandatory for the regular Bio classes, they could use a anatomically correct stuffed animal verison, but the AP class had to do it.

    The only dissections I remember doing were a cow's eyeball and a dead rat. Well, my lab partner did them while I watched with an expression of fascinated horror from several feet away.

    Hehe, I initially misread the title of this thread as "Teen changes her name to anti-dissertation website"... I was like "Yeah, kid, I get that feeling about uni too."
