#rodeoaustin – another collection of personal musings whilst conducting research of the #davidfosterwallace archive at the Harry Ransom Center, UT, Austin, TX (Day Thirteen Entry Two)

And then there’s the part of me that just can’t leave it at face value and has to go and add something that needn’t be added. As a person who lives on a plant-based diet, and who sees the wilful disregard and/or exploitation and/or consumption of animals as being a ‘fault’ of many a human being, there’s a strange feeling associated with going to the rodeo and enjoying the spectacle of it, whilst wondering just how much does that steer like having it’s neck and legs roped before being pinned to the ground, or does the bull/horse/sheep like having people strapped to its back. I just kept thinking: what would PETA make of all this?
