I personally just think it's fantastic to see a young female celeb who has morals and cares about something other than dates and drinking.

Eh, I don't care if people eat dolphins. I don't care if they eat cat, dog, horse, chicken, pig, or beef. And I don't think it is fair for the western nations to dictate who or what other nations can eat, after all, America and the like wouldn't be so happy if people of the Hindu religion (I guess I shouldn't say India - since the whole of India doesn't consider the cow sacred) called them "disgusting" because they have an appetite for cow.

Protesting the way the animals are slaughtered; that's fine by me. But degrading a nation of people because their culture differs from ours? I find that disgraceful.

Most Japanese people don't eat dolphin though. So I wouldn't call it a cultural thing. Maybe a ...sub culture?

^ Correct it is not a cultural thing, infact although it is LEGAL in Japan to eat dolphins, many Japanese people think of it as a black market and don't eat it.

well said! america often sticks it's nose into others issues before knowing the issue or understanding traditions...i think that's why they're, for the most part, looked down on by other nations...they're ignorant for the most part...

See, dolphins are nice and friendly, and we screw them over. Remember, there is no such thing as dolphin friendly tuna.
Keep in mind that my intention is NOT to support dolphins being cruelly slaughtered, but a point I'd like to make is that not ALL dolphins are friendly. Yes they are extremely intelligent but the whole stereotype of them being friendly animals that would never harm is false. While I'm sure there are friendly ones, they too, are wild animals, and cases of them killing humans, raping, murdering each other had been documented although, strangely, not talked about much.

That's awful! Greenpeace really don't help their image much. I am sure there is so much dogmaticism in their ranks (and on this thread) about their beliefs that they forget that they are essentially being culturist/racist. And in this thread people are being the same way about the Japanese. Why not oppose large scale food industries than people who are (LEGALLY) hunting dolphins. Surely it is not about the species, it is about the manner and the sustainability.

And what is this nonsense about one species being more intelligent than another?! Does that a) Give us the right to treat unintelligent life as we please and b) what about in nature? Are we going to condemn killer whales for killing dolphins?

But yes, I feel fairly bleak about the damange we have done just like jun3machina.
