Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns of Xenophobia
I was hoping the blame on pangolins would curb the demand for pangolin meat and scales in east Asia and end that particular extinction threat.Scientists also worry about humans encroaching more and more on the habitats of other species and forcing them to live near humans, it's not just eating animals that's the problem but also expanding agricultural land and cities. The closer humans live to other animals the easier the transmission and all of that is pushing them closer together with more and more species.But remember not to complain about wet markets because technically that term means any open air market in Asia despite only hitting mainstream usage here for markets that sell life animals in terrible conditions so you'd be asking for a ban on selling vegetables! Fucking hell, that talking point makes me angry. It's absolutely clear that when regular people talk about banning "wet markets" they mean the type being shown in the media where all kinds of random animals are caged in small spaces or sold as meat, not shutting down a farm produce stand.
