‘Let mosquitoes take blood donation’: Animal rights activist raises eyebrows with bizarre plea

“讓蚊子獲得獻血”,動物權利活動人士奇怪的提議引起人們非議

An animal rights activist is facing unwavering ridicule for urging people to not kill mosquitoes, and instead give them the “blood donation” they need to nourish their future children.

一名動物權利活動人士正面臨堅定的嘲笑,因為他慫恿人們不要殺死蚊子,反而給它們“獻血”,它們需要用來養育未來的孩子。

French TV presenter Aymeric Caron was answering questions for the animal rights channel Komoto.tv when he was asked: “What do we do if we are anti-special and we are attacked by mosquitoes?” Anti-specists are people who believe that all species should be treated equally.
In an explanation that has attracted enormous criticism, Caron explained that mosquitoes who bite people are simply hunting “for protein to feed their developing eggs, and therefore their babies.” The activist said the realization is“embarrassing for an anti-specist” because they are actually being bitten by a mother-to-be who has no choice but to risk her life for her future children.

法國電視主持人艾梅瑞克·卡隆正回答動物權利頻道Komoto.tv時,他被問道“如果我們是反物種歧視者,我們被蚊子攻擊時應該怎么做呢?”反物種歧視者是指那些相信所有物種應該被平等對待的人。在一個引發廣泛批評的解釋中,卡隆解釋道,那些咬人的蚊子僅僅是在狩獵,“為了獲得蛋白質來供養它們正在發育的卵,即它們的寶寶”。這位活動人士說,反物種歧視者對這個領悟感到尷尬,因為他們其實是被準“媽媽”咬了,它沒辦法只能為它的未來的寶寶冒生命危險。

“There is good reason to have a bad conscience if you kill a mosquito,” he said in the online video. “One can consider that a blood donation from time to time, to an insect who is only trying to nourish her children, is not a drama.”

在線上視頻中他說“如果你殺了蚊子,你有充分的理由感到羞愧”,“人們可以把被蚊子咬當做對僅是試圖滋養它孩子的昆蟲一次又一次的獻血,這不是一場戲”



Following the backlash, Caron defended the comments to L’Express, saying the footage was only intended for an audience with an interest in anti-specism.

在遭受強烈反對后,卡隆向法國快報周刊辯護自己的評論,說影片只是用來吸引對反物種歧視有興趣的觀眾。
