WTF of the day

a movie about a man living in the midst of tel-aviv, who has (at least) 32 wives and 89 children and the authorities are unable to do anything about it.

W.T.F?!

I don't think cat is more equal, it's just that obviously I've been raised in a culture where a cat is an indoors animal while everything else [barring parakeets] is an outdoor one, so of course I bond more with cats.
As for your third sentence, I don't think I know enough about how horses and cows are beneficiary to humans to actually argue anything there. I've never been to a farm and I come from a large Ukrainian city, I've never even been to an "ogorod".

So, is the distinction between indoor animals and outdoor animals, with protections for cats and hamsters and "anything goes" for goats and sheepdogs? OK to ride and breed horses, but cat breeding is a bad thing? Leather for couches is fine, but catguts for violin strings are out? What about feral cats - is it ok to rape and eat a feral cat, but not an indoor one? Let's review this distinction.

If there's a distinction, it's purely a cultural one. I'm an urban girl who's never been in contact with a horse; all I'm saying is, I've been conditioned to relate more to a certain animal. Had I been raised in a different place, I'd relate more to a different animal.
In any case, no, breeding is wrong no matter what animal it is, and no, leather couches are not fine. Honestly, I kind of respect a person less if they have a leather couch. And no - not ok to rape or eat a feral cat.

Oh, come on, we can't argue personal preference! Pour le sport, do let's get back to generalities or, if you prefer, switch sides.

I've tired of the argument =)
