    I don't have a problem with docking or even de-barking. I just don't think that amateurs need to be involved.
    yea but the indignation is not centered around them doing it themselves - it's around them doing it at all.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    For the sake of argument - lets say that he did learn how to do it - lets say that the person in question is a veternary student. Would that remove your objections? Be honest. :)

    No, not really. I see the whole human piercing thing as another symptom of look-at-me sexual deviance. So, it's distasteful to see a human sexual fetish imposed on a pet.

    so then the objection is superficial - your real objection is to the whole concept of piercings rather than the armature surgery aspect.

    ETA - we used to have a show cat that has his ears pierced . . . .
