A Horse Is A Horse, Of Course, Of Course...

...But What Is A Man Who Has Sex With One? asks Nathan Lee when he reviews the new Robinson Devor film Zoo (insert sniggers from the less mature of my readership here) in The Village Voice article Stable Boys:

So allow me to pose another question, this time to the righteous spay-and-neuter set: How is chopping off a dog's balls (for his own good) less cruel than licking them (which is, you must admit, also for his own good)? There isn't a pet on the planet that has consented to surgery—or, for that matter, being kept in an apartment, fed (poisonous) Alpo, or dressed in funny little sweaters. Let's not pretend we domesticate animals for anything other than our pleasure (emotional and ethical), and in doing so inflict all manner of unnatural things on them in the name of their health and happiness.

Hmm, something to think about indeed, dear Zoo-philiacs!
