Alright, so don't judge or anything but I've had basashi and it's actually very tasty. It is rather hard to find outside of restaurants in Japan but luckily I found some in a super market there and decided to try it as a special treat. I do own horses and still found myself eating the basashi, purely for the life experience. It's not as common as people think and it is considered to be a specialty(not an everyday meal) I would suggest everyone try everything once especially when it comes to food
Wow that answer you just gave that person about food was like, so true yo, so true. Like not just for food, but for tons of stuff in life. Like you gotta consider how other people's perspectives GOT to being how they ARE...
what do you think of one eating a horse? i think its horrid..
honestly, i think it’s based on the culture for it to be acceptable or not.
some cultures are seen as disgusting because they eat cats and dogs, but people forget that it’s hard to come across any type of meat in other countries. of course americans see the practice of eating cats and dogs as something unacceptable because we see them as family pets and companions, not food. raising cows and other livestock can get expensive and it’s not a luxury that everyone can afford.
i’ve personally had tarantula, swallow spit, duck embryo and shark fin because i was raised into thinking it’s okay. i was judged by my friends when they found out, but i didn’t mind because that’s where they draw the line at what’s okay and what’s not okay to eat. i’m not ashamed, food is food.
i mean where can we really draw the line at what’s okay and what’s not okay to eat when everyone’s under different circumstances?
tldr; i definitely respect your opinion because i’m sure you don’t think of horses as food. i doubt that eating basashi (raw horse meat) is a common occurrence in japan, or anywhere really. it’s all about being accepting of other cultures.
