    Re: Yulin Is Barbaric

    I would rather starve than eat a dog, cat, or any other household pet. I am a meat eater and my Granny has a farm and has cows which are not for meat consumption. If I did have cows, chickens, goats, etc... for pets I would not eat them because like dogs you form a connection with them. I would still eat meat, but definitely not my pets.

    Meat is meat.
    Yeah and some meats aren't meant to be eaten and to be taken care as pets.

    Re: Yulin Is Barbaric

    My self... If I thought about it much I wouldn't eat any meat at all. The only way I eat meat is by pretending it comes from Walmart.

    So who are you to decide what constitutes "house hold pets"?

    Chickens, goat, pigs and sheep are common in Australia. I also know people who keep kangaroos as pets. And you can buy it at the local store. Is it ok to eat your national emblem?

    I think there can be a lot of contributing factors as well. Like I grew up eating meat in my family. It's natural for me to eat meat. I think that family, where you grow up, and other contributing factors can be a part of it. But like I said, I'd rather starve than eat a domestic animal.

    Re: Yulin Is Barbaric

    So, after brief research, I can agree that it is a barbaric practice, but not because it's dogs. The thought of eating dogs is sickening to me (that being said I'm vegetarian anyway). But it's a cultural thing. Eating cats and dogs isn't a cultural taboo there. The problem lies in the fact that the animals are often brutally murdered, apparently publicly, and sometimes stolen from loving families. And a majority of the population, albiet a small one, is against the practice. That isn't acceptable.
    Service to your fellows is the root of peace.

    Course it can. There's heaps of contributing factors to your diet, eating meat or not.

    I would probably eat meat rather than starve. But I mean like desert island starve.

    Re: Yulin Is Barbaric

    I wonder how people would be if I had a pet Cockroach...if it is MY pet,no one should ever try to kill it or anything meant to hurt it,Right?
    People have much different thoughts about a cockroach,might be culture,might just be the hee bee geebies. And does my position allow me to berate people who would smash them or poison them even though I find that action offensive. Everyone has things they hate,and others might consider that hate objectionable,and all of us being human may tend to go to war over small differences in culture. Because as I mentioned before...humans are a minefield...Watch your step please.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.
