What’s sick is everyone I know has said they wouldn’t mind eating a horse. The general consensus with people I know is, that meat is meat. However for all those who have freaked out about it, perhaps (hopefully) they will stop eating meat altogether.
Have y’all seen this blog yet? It makes some pretty good points about how crazy it is for folks to freak out about horse meat when there’s absolutely no difference whatsoever between how a horse and a cow are slaughtered for food: http://www.peta2.com/blog/wtf-difference/.
I don’t understand why everybody is making such a big deal about it, meat is meat.
If you are happy to eat beef, then why aren’t you happy to eat something that I assume tastes the same? If nobody has noticed it until now, then it’s obviously not causing anyone any problems, so why is it such a big thing?
It annoys me when people will happily eat something like a Cow, but the idea of eating something they see as cute, or intelligent or something is disgusting.
Killing animals is awful, it doesn’t matter what type, if it’s cute or not, it’s just disgusting.
They’re upset because they were lied to.
It seems they were somehow under the impression that they could trust people who profit from torturing & murdering animals, and poisoning & lying to humans.
