Is Vilma getting unfairly picked on??
I'm refering to the people who are all over him for his comments about dogfighting and horseracing.
I honestly think people are just looking for a way to harass him. Can no one else see that they are in a way both animal abuse but one is socially acceptable? Having a person ride u smacking ur ass as hard as they can would be concidered cruel (and is by some) but since it has been that way for ages it is acceptable.
Now i am not saying dogfighting should be acceptable, far from it. I think dogfighting is horrible and should be against the law, and i wish such acts didn't happen. But then again, i'm against all forms of animal cruelty.
I believe thats what Vilma was saying, that in a way they both abuse animals, only society approves of one form and not the other, and that although dogfighting is obviously wrong, its funny one is acceptable and the other isn't.
But i could be viewing this wrong, or missing something. and hey, i'm a huge Vilma fan. tell me, am i looking for a way to let him off the hook?? or am i right and people are taking it a little harsh on him??
PS Portis' comments were 10 times worse and i haven't heard to much on him being bashed, but i could just be missing them
