Functional Philosophy #109

(1) Hormones for Trans Children (2) The Ethics of Eating Meat

In this episode of Functional Philosophy, I answer the following questions:

00:38 - "In recent years, I've heard quite a lot of news about hormonal and surgical treatment given to children with gender dysphoria. While I acknowledge that these are not something that one should be prevented from undergoing as an adult, I can't justify such options being available to a child. To what extent should the state restrict parents from harming their children?"

09:07 - "Under what conditions would you say that harming an animal is a decent thing to do, and why? (in the context of diet)"

Functional Philosophy is the weekly Q&A podcast that helps you develop the philosophical foundations required to achieve certainty, success, and happiness.
