Politeness is defined by the times and the times are defined by the region... more locally the individual.

Nobody is a rabbit so it don't hurt nobody‽

Rabbit shows up here in the grocery stores when they're in season but again who knows what they do with them‽ Can't speak to the gamingess, never tried it, though I do like deer meat but who knows what that deer was into...

I have known people who raised rabbits. They make better BBQ than chicken.

I holidayed on a farm once where the children had a pet rabbit in a hutch at the end of the garden. Every morning they went down to feed it with vegetable scraps from the kitchen. On top of the hutch was a fur. I asked what that was doing there and one of the kids said matter-of-factly, "That's last year's rabbit".

Morally I can't fault that attitude. The rabbit was raised for food like all the other animals on the farm and it was well treated while it lived. It was probably more humanely slaughtered than many of the animals that I eat. At least it didn't have to travel to an abattoir. All the same, I don't think I could eat an animal that I had known personally. I just wouldn't have an appetite for it.

For me eating meat, I'd rather raise it myself but I don't have that luxury; except maybe for rabbits which again I've never tried? The thing I've liked about dear meat was the gamey flavor, someone once said if you don't like that flavor soak it in milk.

Aquaponics has been a great choice tho I'm doing it on a very small scale. Fairly large fish tanks in my spare room with sodium halide lights running 24/7, grows quickly; mostly tomatoes, acorn squash and sweet peas for now with Tilapia.

It's been completely standard for millennia to do it this way. Watch the series Tales from the Green Valley: they refer to what they're eating by the name of the animal when it was alive. Nothing disrespectful, just purely practical. And even appreciative. We have the luxury of saying "I couldn't eat an animal I had known personally", when for a long time it was more a way of distinguishing one animal from another on the farm. Of course you may end up with favourites but that's inevitable, one would just have to 'get over it'.

You would have the appetite for it if you lived and worked in a farmhouse in winter: after a long day in the fields, a hot steaming plate of sliced Gertrude and vegetables would go very nicely with a strong ale.

A vegan activist in Spain*who claimed to have been attacked by an angry mob*last week — after she “rescued” 16 rabbits from their farm — wound up causing the deaths of nearly 100 baby bunnies in the process, a report says.

A vegan activist in Spain? That would have to be one of the Almas Veganas who set this thread off. Full circle!

My quote is valid. I never said all of it(world) is corrupt but it is corrupt. Therefore we do not reap what we sew. Oh and how can it be vampire|werewolf|witch if doll exist?

Very true, now corrected. Then sow also means a female pig which is tenuously linked to the original topic...

Do not attempt to comprehend jamison20000e at face value, some eccentric thinking is required. And as for the vampire comment, you said "[the] world is corrupt" to which he replied, "it's a vampire". This refers to the Smashing Pumpkins' song Bullet with Butterfly Wings, the first line of which is, "The world is a vampire".

Eccentric, eclectic; whatever... world, is the same as 'the world' encompassing all, having babies!
