There seems to be a correlation between people who do mean things to animals .... that they would do them to people. It's a compassion thing.

I don't let my dislike of the *anti-s* interfere with my judgement about a situation.

For istance, while some practices may not be *cruelty*, I feel I can still judge the "gray areas", so I do.

I read and I watch, and then I determine when something feels distasteful, coercive, bad taste, or somewhat sadistic and unnecessary to me. It doesn't have to be branded "cruelty" for me to recoil sometimes.

As for kangaroo boxing, for instance....I'm thinking: Would I punch my dog in the face...to entertain my friends?

I've also seen instances in which dogs or animals were rather traumatized and stressed by certain practices...practices which are unnecessary.

One of the things I like about people who love animals is that they usually tend to be kind-hearted *in general*.

So yes, there are things I see which I find in very bad taste when it comes to the treatment of dogs and other animals, and I'm not going to run in the other direction just out of "knee-jerking against the anti-s".
