Liberationist literature often presents a distorted view but one which is more easily accessible to lay people. 3. Animals are very widely used by humans, as pets, on farms or for leisure activity (riding, for instance). To single out animal research for condemnation is as illogical as it is unjust. It would be just as logical for the BUA V to seek to ban all use of animals by humans, which would be unrealistic and politically unpopular.

In two related species, the spice finch and the striated finch, the males of both perform the 'bow' and hold the head low over the perch for some seconds, but do not wipe the beak. Morris suggests that the courtship bow of these two species has evolved from an ancestor who did perform beak-wiping during courtship, much as the presentday zebra finch still does. We do not know what change in evolutionary circumstances promoted this differentiation, possibly dietary changes from a sticky to a non-sticky diet, but the innate residual pattern still remained incorporated into the courtship activity.
