So? Has Greg stated any *reasons* why orlanthing cultures should have these total taboos against goats and dogs? How does he justify it? AFAIK, Sandy has said on several occasions that orlanthings *do* have goats.

I don't have a problem with orlanthing culture favoring the noble alynx over the unclean dog and the not-so-unclean sheep over the filthy goat, since it creates a useful societal differentiation and provides MGF. I do find it hard to accept that orlanthings would ban dogs and goats for no apparent reason.

What is it that DP orlanthings find so abhorrent about dogs and goats?
