You ask Chinese/ Japanese people why they eat dogs!?
To this – “why not! Why can you eat beef (cow), pork (pig), chicken, birds, fish etc and not dogs or cats”!?
You – “but they’re so cute and friendly and make such great pets, what kind of a person would eat such a thing”?
Chinese / Japanese – “So, you’re telling me that little chickens aren’t cute? Or perhaps cows are unfriendly? Pigs aren’t adorable? Oh come on! You eat them because you don’t feel any weirdness in the idea of eating them, maybe that is how you were brought up. We on the other hand have no obligations towards not eating dogs/cats/ snakes/ insects etc. It is all a matter of where you grew up, and what the social situation was, around you. And whether you decided to follow it”!
Dogs are so yummy! You should try it
I think I’ve made my point.
.- I am a vegetarian by choice, and have absolutely no problems with the idea of non vegetarianism. I will never be the one forcing anyone to turn vegetarian, and would like the same vice versa. Everyone is entitled to their choice. It is all about what one is comfortable with.
But don’t make me cook it though! 😉
