Why is it ok (celebrated, even) to kill cows, pigs and chickens on an industrial scale but a no-no for dogs and cats? I have a hard time imagining cat meat being very tasty, but morally I don't see any difference at all. Some people just love bigotry, I guess.
Why not humans? You look pretty tasty.
I mean, we can draw the line anywhere, but if you're arguing meat is meat, then you're drawing a line, too.
You're being silly. I'm not arguing meat is meat. I am arguing animals are animals. The laws governing their life and death should not be arbitrarily based on cuteness factor or flimsy historical reasons.
