Cetophilia (Love of Cetaceans)/セトフィリア(病的鯨類愛好)

Here I define the term cetophilia as a mental disorder of loving cetaceans abnormally.

Ceto (< Cetacea) + philia (love, friendship, affection)
セト(クジラ目) + フィリア(愛、友情、好意)
Anti-whaling countries, groups, and individuals are mild to serious cases of cetophilia. I can't talk about the symptoms of such cases without condemning them. I guess I'd better not go into more details about cetophiliac countries because hatred would simply generate more hatred.

I hope to see the demise of the cetophiliac policies of cetophiliac countries some day, and I do hope that all countries work toward a common goal: the sustainable management of cetaceans and other marine resources.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of a dinner party where people from both whaling countries and former anti-whailing countries savor the flavors of whale meat and other fresh seafood, just like a cetophiliac person is dreaming of an imaginary world where humans and cetaceans live together happily ever after.

That is true. We do not get Whale meat here in India I guess. Atleast not in the Fish market and Supermarkets..!! That means I have to travel to some S.E. Asian country or Far Eastern country like Japan to taste Whale meat. The photos of the Whale meat dishes you posted were tantalizing.

seeandoh: Thank you for your comment. I wish that the people in cetophiliac countries like the United States and Australia would think the same way as you!
