Well, last I checked, my dog wasn't writing letters. Just how far down the rabbit hole you want to dive? It's a bit disingenuous to pretend that these two things are equivalent. Sorry, but I can't see this as anything but a bad faith attempt to pretend that farmers are now equivalent to mind flayers.
If Mindflayers are right in their belief that they're as mentally far above us as we are above the various sentient (After 2,500 Studies, It's Time to Declare Animal Sentience Proven (Op-Ed)) animals we raise for food, who are we to judge them?
