Like everyone else, I've been playing around with the ideology builder, and one idea I keep gravitating towards is the wish that all Animal Personhood would do was give animals the same status as humans, with only other human-related memes deciding what that would mean specifically. So, for example, if an ideology had both Animal Personhood and Cannibalism, you would still be able to eat animals, because they are people and you eat those, too. Though you might have to limit yourself to wild animals, if butchering your own colonists wasn't allowed. I'm sure there are quite a few things one could combine this trait with. I'd like to see the already robust combination system become even more flexible in general, and this seems like a good start.


Animal Personhood and Cannibalism should totally be combineable. The penalty for killing Animals will already avoids eating a lot of meat.
