I am from Spain, and as most of you know, there is bullfighting here. Matadors, bulls, etc. Some ignorants from foreign countries think that all spaniards like bullfights, but it's not true. An important part of the society is against it, and many others simply pass. What are your opinions about it? should it be eradicated? By the way, it is not only from spain, it's also huge in south america and in the south of france.

I'm also from Spain and I hate bull fights! I think they are stupid and cruel. Ok, there was a time in history when they played an important role in society, when poor boys from the countryside could become matadors and get fame and become rich, but nowadays...? Nooooooooooo way! I always "fight" with my boss over this, he's crazy about bull fights and always says he'll take me to one one of these days. Thanks but no thanks!

It's man at his element. The predator, the hunter, the stronger, the wiser and on top of food chain. It's brute against brute. I find it barbaric but at the same time fascinating. I haven't actually witnessed one personally but from what I have read, it is enough for me not to see because with just descriptions, it makes me not want to see it.

I've been to a bullfight once, and personally i didn't like it that much. Nevertheless, apart from normal bullfighting there is something called REJONEO, which is bullfighting but from horses, specially tamed for it. The bulls killing is not nice, but the way the horses riskly dance and walk before the bulls, the way they play with them is amazing.

Well, as for me I really do like the culture of it. Although I do feel sorry for the bull most of the time, I appreciate how bullfighting is deep within the roots of your culture. If it were to be eradicated, it like losing a big part of what Spain is. Well, that's what I think anyways.
