I know what you mean and it's sick as fuck, but with whaling it's not even for medicinal purposes (and even if it were, that STILL wouldn't be remotely ok!) I don't understand the need to eat whale meat. NOBODY is that hungry. It seems to me that it's kinda done for the sake of it; I eat whale meat because I can afford to, you know, like having a designer handbag or name-dropping celebrities in social circles. The fact that it's all so superficial makes me utterly livid, and I don't accept that it's a cultural thing on any level because cannibalism was 'a cultural thing' back in the day and we wouldn't accept that now would we?
