Genetic Modification

Fodder for a longer post on ableism and fear-mongering within environmental activism.

Genetic modification: You mean like what happens when we selectively breed crops to reduce allergens? Or what happens when we breed dogs for intelligence and temperament so they can help people with disabilities?  No? Maybe you mean when we grow specific strains of plant for high medicinal value or crop yields? No.  Oh.  I get it.  You mean when we do that shit in a lab instead of taking generations.  Because only able-bodied people who live near arable farmland need to be considered.  The rest of can just wait.  Science can’t be trusted, after all.
