they may still want to join into the debate, without the distrubing images. I believe everyone should have the right to join in if they want.
We are talking about eating dogs , disturbing is something to be expected here.



I know, what you mean. but,l. i think those images should be removed/made into links. for the sake of others. don't you agree?

also, disturbing maybe abit of an over statement. as, we eat cows and there no diffence there.

theres prostitution in america? wtf where how much? jk i know they got em in like florida/south

oh i agree i think asians are ashamed about the dog thing, prolly mainly cause theyre so influenced by the west, im 50/50 on it, i get a little angry if some dude tries to make a joke in my face but i also laugh about it too, there was this one stand-up he was filipino and one of his jokes was like his niece goes (after seeing a dog with that cone around his neck) "look uncle doggy ice cream" bwuahaha was good

I dont think eating dog is THAT bad, if you seriously have nothing else to eat, like if you're poor in fact there are a lot of people in Philippines that are in poverty. but like there are also a lot of careless people too that just eat dogs because it tastes good, people shouldnt eat them because dogs are smart and they are capable of learning a lot of things that we know, like how dolphins are smart, but people eat them cuz they dont care ..x_x' -sigh-

I don't understand what the big deal is. WHAT IS WRONG WITH EATING DOGS? Just cause you raise them here as pets doesn't mean people can eat them. I raised a guinea pig, but that doesn't stop the Peruvians from making their dishes.

And there parasitic infections in any meat. So dogs can't be scrutinized because its "immortal" in western society.

It almost seem like you Filipinos are ashamed that you eat dogs. I mean its illegal in your country yes, but so is prostitution in most of the states. And most Americans sure as hell aren't ashamed of our prostitution.

Personally, I never ate a dog, but I shall try it once I get back to China just to see the hype.


Gosh. Not all of us eat dogs.

Also, if you are not ashamed of prostitution, then there is something extremely wrong with you.


I meant at as in some of your people not everyone.

And no I'm not ashamed of the State's prositution. I frankly can care less about it. Most people around you would just say its bad. But thats it. They don't care as long as it doesn't affect them.


Isn't that the same case with people who talk about how eating dog meat is bad and how they should stop it without ever taking any action?

Hypocritical. =)


Uhhh no... we might say prostitution is bad but we aren't ASHAMED of it. The fact that you Filipinos (can't say this for everyone, just generalizing here) seemed to be ASHAMED of your own people for eating dogs. I am wondering why on that. Is it because you are all too prideful of your nation that people committing crimes is something the whole nation is shameful for, or is it because western upbring makes you think dogs are non-edible foods and is gross?

no offence, but I don't think that they are that poor. I prefer to think that they like the taste.
I think ever animal has eaten. (technally, we are animals too)

it's all cultural differences, so what if a small majority eat dogs. People in India don't eat cows because they believe they are sacred. And to them, beef eaters are disgusting and uncivilized. It's all how you take it from a perspective.

I can see why this thread could be taken as offensive. And I have to semi-agree with ed,

Incorrect assumption. Most of the people who eat dog meat are alcoholics and drunkards, and the have it as a condiment to their drinking sprees.

Does it taste good? People say it has very little taste, but has more of an invigorating effect ~ it's as if the meat were intrinsically spicy, even if no spices were added. People who tried it for the first time (documentaries) say that it isn't tasty, and is perhaps an acquired taste for the drinkers.

Judging an animal to be eaten based on their intelligence seems like an odd rubric for determining what is edible and what is not. The western culture has given us the impression that dogs were meant to be domesticated as "man's best friend", hence the idea that eating dogs is wrong. But from a biological/medical perspective, it seems that humans weren't meant to eat dog meat, as many people have been diagnosed with complications due to consumption of dog meat.
