So I had an interesting conversation with my employer yesterday. My employer is a pharmacist, so educated, and quite on the ball, he is knowledgeable in a wide range of things. The thing is, is his pharmacy is a methadone clinic and as such 95% of his clients are junkies and it is set up in a yes lower-class area [most of the people are criminals, and proud of it actually as we've had people actually brag how they're professional boosters (thieves)] of the city. The reason why I am saying this is because all he knew of pit bulls was what he saw outside his pharmacy's doors [before the breed were banned throughout the area] and that was vicious dogs attacking one another and even going aggressively at people. I can't hold it against him if he never researched the breed - why would he? It's not his dog breed nor as he lives in a neighboring city would he care for it. But it brought to mind an age old argument I have had routinely with my mother. She hates them. Regardless of the times that I have told her it's not the dog, it's the people - and explained the history, and the abuse of the breed - she still thinks them vile. So what do you think? If you're going to comment one way or the other, please bring logical reasons and not emotional reasons [e.g. I really don't care if you simply hate them, give me a reason why you hate them]. I have also included a poll for voting to avoid any comments that may cause a ruckus.
