I do not like to see prejudices or PC suppress perfectly legitamate observations that can further knowledge. Horses are extremely intelligent. I am sure the study of horses' reaction to different people could provide valuable info, yet would NOT be allowed b/c their are self appointed PC police everywhere. For example, people have a "prejudice" against tobacco, and mistakenly (b/c of prejudice) fault nicotine for tobacco's illeffects. The fact that tobacco is highly addicting, along w other things, means it would be extremely beneficial to medical science to fully understand of the biochemical pathways of nicotine, yet the "prejudice" against tobacco has slowed that research....almost to a crawl. The word "enlightened" doesn't come to mind when I see PC police on patrol.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
