I know we're not allowed to talk about what other cultures eat because if we do we are filthy racists who need to be burned on pyres, but I have to say I'm pretty glad to hear parts of China are talking about banning dog meat. It may be cultural conditioning but dogs are pretty sweet animals, it makes me sad to think of animals being eaten that regularly die for us or put themselves at grave risk as police dogs, rescue dogs, bomb and drug sniffing dogs, that help people who have disabilities and require assistance, and that are the only companion for many lonely people (sad as that is.) I know they all feel the same pain (I don't eat them either) but I think it's natural to have a connection to an animal that evolved so closely with us, hunted with us and has lived in our just outside our homes for so long.

WAY too much takeout food. Sigh. Today I ate fresh blueberries and raspberries, and felt better right away.. if only because it was fresh food with decent nutrition for once.

In response to a confession. Ditto! I went to my local mom and pop Asian market this morning (I'm now the neighborhood) and it was chill AF. Even relaxing unlike other recent rude experiences I've had at Sprouts. Prices were cheap and everything was in stock. All employees had gloves and masks on and store was super clean. There was even a parking lot attendant waiting patiently at a distance to collect my cart after I loaded up.

In response to a confession. This is ridiculous virtue signalling. I'm not going to stop calling out Catholics in certain African states for mutilating their female babies (and before anyone starts, I'm equally happy to call out Americans for genitally mutilating their male babies too.) I'm not going to stop calling out the sexist elements of Islamic culture in certain Muslim countries. And I'm not going to stop calling out countries with dirty habits that are currently responsible for a global pandemic that is directly risking the life of my husband who is a doctor. And while I'm doing that I'll equally call out the stupid white men in my country that are responsible for his lack of PPE. I'm not the person you're replying to, I'm just pig sick of any kind of criticism of complete barbarism being called "racism." Because it's not. China's actions are directly affecting us all. And yes, slaughterhouses in the west are disgusting too. So vote with your dollar and stop fucking eating them, then.

It's getting harder for me to breathe, and I have a fever (a minor one, but still). I'm 51, but I have underlying diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and I have scarred lungs. I'm scared.. if this IS COVID-19, my chances of survival are rather low (which is why I've been home except to get food). DH seems to think that the virus has been overblown by the media and isn't nearly as serious as they portray. Will I have to die to prove it to him? :(

In response to a confession. You think that's any worse than what a slaughterhouse here is like? Poop, flies, pus leaking out of untreated abscesses, blood, etc. Oh, but I get it--you've been to China so you're allowed to shit on their culture and say how much better America is. Newsflash--we aren't.

Voting for president is like public transportation: you choose the bus going in the direction to where you want to be. The ride might be bumpy, and you might make some stops along the way, but that's life. If you don't want to see kids in cages on the border, don't get on that bus. What you don't do is stand in the rain and pout because it's a bus and not the magical unicorn of your dreams.

I've been to Chinese meat markets in big cities and small. The flies were disgusting. Chinese toddlers wear split pants and their parents hold them over the gutters in the busy streets so they can poop and pee. They don't even begin to clean up after this method of toilet training. The same flies that explore this human excrement then feed on the raw hanging meat.

In response to a confession. Why is this racist stuff allowed here? There is no difference between eating domesticated animals and farm animals. I will eat chicken, but not deer because it tastes terrible to me, much like your "friends" who don't like cat. Eating the brain of an animal is also considered normal in many cultures. My mom loves calf brain. You're cherry picking one specific culture because you're racist.
