Inspired by the "Obama ate a dog" story.

I have eaten dog meat at Vietnamese restaurants in Laos and at a friends home in Korea and had no trouble doing it (and it tastes pretty good..). But a lot of people are really outraged by the thought. What do you say, is it OK to eat dogs?

Sure, I wouldn't, but I don't really care if you do (as long as it's not somebody's pet/property, but that should go without saying and would be true about any edible thing from apples to cattle).

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Eating a dog is akin to eating a family member.  Having had one for nearly 15 years, I know they are more than just pets.  And I am disgusted that so many voted 'yes'.

But doesnt that depend on the context? In the Western world we treat dogs as family members, but in other countries it is considered a domestic animal much like a pig (which is just as intelligent as a dog).

If you ever had one, you'd be surprised at how intelligent dogs can really be...

But again, pigs are smart, we have no problem eating them.  I'm not going to eat any dog (unless it's the only thing around), but I'm not going to judge negatively people that do.  Again, as long as it's not somebody else's dog.  It's kind of like flag burning (or Koran or Bible or anything else humans give way too much importance to sometimes) that way, I'm not going to burn a flag, but making a law that bans it is restricting the freedoms of others.  But you can't steal some other dude's flag and burn it.

Eating dog isn't so much the problem as raising dogs to be eaten.  Raising herbivores for meat is wasteful as it is, but carnivores is worse as it is doubly inefficient, and I doubt the meat is tastier than herbivore meat.

It obviously makes me extremely uncomfortable and I don't know that I could stomach being around it but I can't think of a logical reason to be opposed.

Except they rarely eat what westerners would consider to be standard breeds. They eat wild dogs, basically the equivalent of a coyote. And dogs vary in intelligence anyway.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

I see no reason why I can kill a pig and eat it, but not a dog...not that I want to eat dog though.

Absolutely not. I'd eat dirt before I even thought about eating my dogs.

Only hotdogs though when they're the high quality ones, not the nasty Oscar Meyers (I think that's the one).

I also really don't care about the supposed logical inconsistency between eating other animals and not dog.  That's the reason why I am an American and part of American culture thought.  Tough sh!t.

I'm not against eating dogs, but I sure as heck wouldn't eat them myself.  The sound of it grosses me out.

I love all of the "enlightened" people voting "yes" on this...

If you want to eat dog meat, just don't do it by me, unless you feel like picking up your teeth from the floor.

It's fine, but I would never eat them, and would be very disgusted if I saw someone eating them knowingly in my presence.

Are people supposed to say they eat pigs, cows and chicken but they would never on earth eat dogs? Is that more enlightened?

It's certainly a lot less stupid to not eat domesticated, intelligent, loving animals. And, of course, you're free to not eat any of the animals above which would be ideal.
