ok so here’s the thing
the consumption of dog meat IS ACTUALLY A PART OF CHINESE CUISINE. SHOCKER. chinese people have been eating dog meat for centuries. the taboo against eating dog meat is primarily a western convention and in recent years, countries that have traditionally eaten dog meat like china and korea have issued legislation preventing the consumption of dog meat BECAUSE OF WESTERN INFLUENCE. in fact, it is actually illegal in hong kong - i mention this because of recent asks about hong kong.
the stereotype of asians of any ethnicity as dog eaters is specifically a way to demonize asians for our “weird” and “disgusting” foods when OBJECTIVELY SPEAKING, dog meat is really no different from any other meat. but the construction of dog meat itself as abhorrent is a white supremacist tool to dehumanize asians regardless of this fact, and the fact that equally disgusting foods (like fucking foie gras is FATTY DUCK LIVER FROM FORCE FED DUCKS and rocky mountain oysters are fucking BULL TESTICLES). but it’s only disgusting for asians to eat these kinds of food because we’re ~weird and exotic~.
there is literally nothing wrong with dog meat except what the white man tells you is wrong. (well, also the inhumane treatment of slaughterhouse dogs but that’s another story, and other food animals are raised in equally inhumane conditions in the west.)
edit: i also don’t like this undertone of “oh, we chinese don’t really eat dog meat, it’s those damn koreans that do it”…
