Meat, sadly, is a universal ‘food’, though the particular animals eaten vary from country to country. I purpose that, to support the eating of ANY animal is to globally support the eating of EVERY animal. Americans eat cows, Koreans eat dogs and the Japanese eat whales and none of it is necessary, healthy or humane. Because the truth is that all of these animals suffer, physically & psychologically, to end up on your plate. As Jeremy Bentham wrote in 1789, arguing for moral & legislative rights for animals-“The question isn’t- Can they talk? Nor- Can they reason? But- Can they suffer?” So I ask that, if you are repulsed by the eating of certain animals as you eat others, you acknowledge your complicity and reconsider your food choices.

I agree.  What I do find disturbing is that there are identified rights of indigenous people here in Australia to maintain hunting traditions, often meaning they have the right to hunt endangered animals and treat many animals with horrendous cruelty.  I also note the rights of Jewish and Muslim communities to kill and prepare animals in certain ways that are simply barbaric.  The use of special rights is one that just adds another level of difficulty to the whole argument.

well stated Patty... so-called 'tradition' and 'culture' are patriarchal tools which will continue to keep animals enslaved until we all stand up for the voiceless...
