Most of all, discussing such sensative issues is going to hurt someones feelings and cause a fight.
but how is that relevant to the subject?
anyway, i do think that this thread has the potential to get out of hand, and has come very close already, possibly just by the title.
the main question has already been answered: why do asians eat/defile dogs?
so... this thread should be closed IMO.
but, ill state my opinion on the subject matter anyway. as has been said, this is only 'mean' because we in america(or europe) have dogs as pets, or have been taught that dogs are pets, and we have(as a society) become emotionally attached to dogs. in other countries however, this is not the case. dogs are just like any other animal. they treat dogs the way americans treat cows.
the main difference i see is that america has enclosed facilities for slaughtering cows(or other animals) whereas less fortunate countries(including asia) dont have the luxury of doing these things indoors or even out of sight. they have to other choice but to do it in the open, outside, where everybody can see it.
i am asian(filipino), and i do find it slightly offencive when people ask me if ive ever eaten dogs.
