sort of like fuck mexico and fuck spain on bullfighting. i love those countries and MOST of their culture. i cannot and will not accept killing whales and killing bulls in bullfighting.
that said, i do watch whale wars on an infrequent basis (no tv. i watch in places other than my house). i am inspired by it. i'm not sure i agree with everything they do, i just think they are some of the most dedicated and courageous people i've ever seen. i would love to possess some of what they do. laying their lives on the line (literally mind you) for their beliefs.
