Now, the fraud is a problem, but random food fraud in China doesn't warrant a news story anywhere but China. The issue at hand is eating cats, which is, in itself, acceptable in that culture.

Is it acceptable? I lived there for years, heard lots of types of animals for eating, never heard cat. Granted its a big country and I'm not an expert on their cuisines.

If anything, its provincial (meaning some people do accept it and others absolutely do not) or this is food fraud as you mention.

I suspect most of my local coworkers and friends there would not be crazy about eating cat.

lordjupiter: No, that's all pseudointellectual rationalization and total bullshiat. fark cultural relativity in some cases, including this one. You don't even understand history and the human/cat relationship, so get off your high horse.

And your slavery analogy is totally inapt. Dualistic thinking and reductionist argumentation. A case can be made for anything by some form of specious logic, yet some reasoning is better than other reasoning. Some facts are more important than others. You can't merely say slavery and eating animals are the same concept, and therefore equally black and white. They aren't.

But if we're going to talk about people acting on other people, again, why can't we eat humans??? If all "animals" are equal, and some cultures eat other people, and people are part of the animal kingdom and the food chain, and some animals eat people, who are we to say we all can't eat people?

See how stupid that sounds?


Dude, enough. You're going into retarded pseudoscience and weird bestiality-tinged rants about how "we evolved together, so we should always be pals". Anemones and clownfish evolved together too, but anemones will eat clownfish as fast as they eat anything else if it wasn't for the mucus layer protecting the clowmfish.

And, again, not all cultures have domesticated dogs/cats or developed with either of them. You're still going "WHY CAN'T EVERYONE DO WHAT I DO?!" towards people who've NEVER done what you do. Don't be an armchair anthropologist.

I know that. But that's not what I said. I said that making relative morality distinctions based on factors like color of skin or "is/is not a cute kitty" is stupid.

But if we're going to talk about people acting on other people, again, why can't we eat humans???

Logically there isn't a particular reason we can't, beyond the fact that we have decided (and are in a position to decide, being the dominant species) that humans have a greater claim to life than other animals, and that humans have the right not to have that life taken from them without consent. Or, in short, the top dog in the room makes the rules. Which brings us to why you're being an idiot. You are not the leader of China. You are not the cultural or moral compass for China. You are, frankly, nothing to China. So to sit on your high horse denouncing China for what China does to a cat while you yourself are doing the exact same thing to a different species, is asinine.

Pigs are more intelligent than cats and dogs and are just as "cuddly". Yet people have no issues eating bacon. Each culture is different and as long as they're not eating humans, who cares?


And why is it wrong to eat humans?


According to the Japanese government even if the meat is harvested in a humane manner you still violated a bunch of health and saftey regulations.

I come from a culture that treats dogs and cats as companions to care for and love. Dogs and cats are cherished members of my family, so I am very uncomfortable seeing them treated otherwise. I see the cats in that truck and I just see other versions of the little friend who nestles in my arms while I sleep. It hurts.

Yet I am a carnivore, and by my moral beliefs it is acceptable to eat animals for food (the less intelligent/feeling the animal, the more acceptable). So, while I abhor seeing cats and dogs treated as food due to my own background and experiences, I accept that other cultures will have different opinions about the role of such animals.

(Note that many people who are offended by the practices in TFA refuse to eat animals at all, which is indeed morally consistent.)

I see the cats in that truck and I just see other versions of the little friend who nestles in my arms while I sleep. It hurts.

It's dietetically consistent. It's not necessarily more moral than eating some meat but not others.

I do NOT accept that the mere existence of an "opinion" or a "culture" means I have to respect it. Some opinions and cultural practices are more harmful and objectionable than others. And for those who play the "who are you to judge" card, it's not about me, and I'm not the only one with these views, so that's not it. As Bill Hicks would say, "I'm me, you're you, now shut the fark up".

Too many people take the lazy shortcut of "logic" that's based on extremist "either/or" continuum thinking. You either believe this EXTREME, or you have to believe the total opposite EXTREME. Or else there's some contrived "appeal to middle ground" which is also not necessarily true, either. Reality and logic require more work than just settling on arbitrary points on the extremes, or dead center.
 
2012-11-01 05:20:04 PM  
I own a cat. I see no problem with eating cats. I find the argument that they are "companion animals" or some such completely spurious. I may find it hard to eat my own cat, but then I would find it a little hard to eat any animal I knew. But people who keep pigs and chickens get used to that.

As a matter of fact the "companion animal" argument applied to cats is laughable as they are famously independent. Mostly they have been kept around by humans to catch mice, and the habit of keeping them as pets is only about 200 years old if that.

The question of whether eating people is wrong is a completely different one. I don't really see the relevance. But as it goes it must be pointed out that it has been done in various places and times. Far more widespread in history than people believe - common in famines. You just have to get hungry enough. Or believe it enables you to capture your enemy's soul. Obviously we don't want it to be acceptable or legal for the same reasons we don't want murder to be acceptable or legal. But there isn't anything inherently immoral with the idea of eating a person. My friend made a will asking us to eat her brain at her wake. Apparently it has been tried and found illegal, but never mind. I still have that will around here somewhere for safekeeping ... just in case ...

Wasilla Hillbilly: LOTN: Wasilla Hillbilly: the way the Chinese kill/prepare cats to be eaten is beyond cruel,

Can you follow up on this. The only thing I've ever seen related is some video that was viral ~ 8 years ago of some guy killing a smallish cat on a restaurant food preparation table. I never thought much about it. He hit it twice, the animal went unresponsive and he started in, end of video.

Is it the hacking them apart thing? No worse than poultry or slicing a cows neck to kill it ( the only way to make "kosher" meat, so entirely common ).

Perhaps I misspoke. I have no way to verify how widespread the practice actually is, but I've seen and heard of more than one account where they skin the cat alive and throw it into boiling oil still squirming and attempting to scream. This is one of the few things in my life that I honestly wish I could "unsee".


You made me curious, so I poked around a bit. Did you witness this yourself?

The Chinese do the same thing with rabbits, you buy one fresh on the street and they skin it alive. You take it home in a box, suffering and crying - because the twisted mind of the mainland Asian believes that suffering makes meat taste better.

This is a sick culture, from top to bottom. We will face this people as an enemy someday - a people that place little value on life of any kind.

I don't understand how Americans can be so up in arms about this when they contribute to the abuse and slaughter of cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, and numerous other domesticated animals. You think cattle and chickens are treated any better in America than they are in China? I don't see any difference between eating cats and eating chickens. The double standards are just stupid. If you eat meat you contribute to the abuse of animals, end of story. Maybe some animals are treated worse SOMETIMES in China, but from my experience it's the exception, not the rule.

If you want to complain about this crap then become a vegetarian and maybe people will give two s__ts about what you say.

If you eat meat you contribute to the abuse of animals, end of story. Maybe some animals are treated worse SOMETIMES in China, but from my experience it's the exception, not the rule.

If you want to complain about this crap then become a vegetarian and maybe people will give two s__ts about what you say.



I don't know about anyone else, but I can only be up in arms about one thing at a time.
My feeble mind cannot handle dividing my arms-up time amongst several worthy motions.
So yes, until my flapping appendages cause the Chinese to stop eating cats, I must unfortunately
allow people in New York to go 4 days without their cell phones, and allow children to fark western
tourists for money in Thailand.

You want to end child prostitution? Get people to stop eating cats. Until then, my hands are tied.

lordjupiter: Freudian_slipknot: Bullseyed: lordjupiter: Try to housetrain a cow, and snuggle with it. Go ahead. Start a revolution.

Try to housetrain a bobcat and snuggle with it.


Hell, try to housetrain a fully feral housecat and snuggle with it. It'll tear your face off.

I love cats, but pretending that they're entirely domesticated is a little crazy. If they aren't socialized as kittens very few can ever be in a human home.

Actually my wife feeds several feral colonies and they're nothing like you describe. They're better left to live on their own in their colonies, but that still doesn't make them the same as farking bobcats. That's just moronic.

What caused you to be so afraid of cats? One bite you when you were a kid (assuming you're not still a kid)?


One of my dogs caught a feral cat and ate it. I let the dog do it. I was out of pellets for my air rifle so I turned him loose. Was it wrong for my dog to eat the cat?

What's wrong is that you won't get off your sister long enough to make a decent troll post.

We're a good couple. Though he is adopted from China. The cats the dog doesn't eat, my boy does.

cue all the comments on cultural relativity bla bla bla

Screw anyone that would eat a cat or a dog

I would beat them into a #$@5 coma if I came across a truck like this

KatjaMouse: Slaves2Darkness: Because rabbits are farmed for their meat just like cows, cats are not. Secondly a butchered cat with the paws removed looks exactly like a butchered rabbit. What was probably happening is fraud, the supplier was going to butcher the cats and sell them as rabbit meat.

This. I'm sure if you asked the general populace about eating cats in China they'd probably be offended. Not as offended as we would be but I bet the typical Chinese person doesn't opt for chopped kitty in the meat aisle.


Yeah, pretty much. Though they'd probably be offended that you were trying to sell them sub-par 山寨 meat. It'd be like giving you a cheap cut of pork and calling it beef steak. By the way, they totally do that here.

"Beef Extract" Additive Used To Change Pork Into "Beef"


Anyway, Your average Chinese person likely wouldn't be irate about the plight of kitties, though this is changing with the current (wealthier) generation. The kids today see dogs and cats more and more as friends and family, and just have more compassion towards animals in general.

What does that tell us? I'd say that compassion for animals is directly correlated to how easy and spoiled your life has been.

Conversely, poor people are psychopaths, lacking empathy.

If you were Hindu, would you declare war on America for eating cows?

Bullseyed: The dogs I saw in China were a lot different than the force bred ones from Europe that went to America.


Yeah, and they're ugly as sin.

So go to China. Do just that. We'll read here how that goes.
