Dude, people used to think human babies didn't feel pain. Or at least didn't remember so no anesthesia operations used to be a thing. I mean, I get it, probably easy to eff up a baby with anesthesia but still.

Wow, it seems like we really operated under the principle of ‘if they don’t say ouch, that must mean they don’t feel pain!’

It seems so stupid in retrospect. Apparently we’re just terrible at having empathy for other sentient living things sometimes.

Uhm, some doctors still think black people don’t feel as much pain. Stupidity is rather prevalent in humans.
