Girl changes name to CutoutDissection.com
A teenage girl has legally changed her name to CutOutDissection.com to protest against animal dissection in schools.
The nineteen-year-old from Kentucky, previously known as Jennifer Thornburg now insists on being called Cutout for short. Her new legal name is the internet address for a part of the website for the protest group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), according to her local paper, the Asheville Citizen Times.
Cutout says she began opposing dissections in school after a class assignment to dissect a chicken wing made her uncomfortable. She helped create a policy at her high school that allows students who object to dissections to complete an alternative assignment.
She is now an intern for PETA.
She added that most of her family members still call her Jennifer.
