    Why should they? It's relevant to the discussion.

    OP. 2 ways of looking at it:

    1. It's not wrong at all - other cultures do it. It's fine to eat any animal whatsoever. You're just in a society where it's regarded 'wrong' to eat a dog or a cat.
    2. It's completely wrong to eat any animal and people who are repulsed at eating a dog yet settle down to eat a roast dinner are complete hypocrites.

    Personally, I'm in camp 2.

    This is what they wrote " Eating any animals is wrong and this is a fact and anyone who doesn't agree is a monster". They, presented it as a fact not an opinion. There are plenty of threads started that have in the title 'all meat eaters are monsters'. They usually descend into an immature mess after about 2 seconds. This is a thread about something that could actually be discussed in a mature way and the person whose post I replied to is clearly trying to stir things up and turn it into one of those threads.

    It will inevitably be one of those threads. Every thread on this subject matter is because people have strong opinions on both sides. If you expect maturity on TSR I think you've come to the wrong place - it's vastly populated with teenagers and trolls.

    Chinese people them eat it, meat is meat to them I guess.
    Why do we consider it gross though? I asked someone and they said dog and cats are smarter then cows and chickens thus making it ok? Why exactly do we think its sick?...lol, I don't even know why I used to think it was sick.


    would you ever at least try eating dog or cat?
    What if someone paid you a lot of money? Obviously this isn't a question for vegans and vegetarians.
    Dogs and cats are Carnivores, any animal that eats other animals is going to produce a tough, bland meat that also carries risks of parasites.

    Good examples of animal meats:
    Chicken
    Beef
    Lamb

    all of those animals eat plants and nothing more

    I love eating cats. The reaction you get when you eat a cat, there is nothing like it. I eat cats so good.

    Dogs are sometimes involved in the meal too and when I think of them on all fours while I am eating cats it just makes me so happy.

    I like food :dontknow:

    I expected some maturity from the discussion. On the whole, I know TSR is a joke though.

    Drives me crazy when people preach how wrong it is to each cats or dogs but will probably consume a turkey for their Sunday dinner that was from a battery farm and pet their dog or cat after. :unimpressed:

    In all honesty, eating dog and cat in my Mum's country was down to having nothing else to eat as a result of poverty. In other countries, it's a delicacy. Over here, I'd point it to our society where cats and dogs are our pets... although that concept doesn't work when we keep fish but eat some of their relatives too :confused: lol
