It's dumb and ugly unless it's there for a reason.
I get it for livestock (cattle/pigs) since it actually serves a purpose but even then there's clip-on alternatives that are sometimes used instead. I have not researched it much for pets, but the idea that it's done for cosmetic purposes is repulsive to me.

I didn't know it was a thing and I probably don't support it but this cat is so so so cute.

this, the most humane thing to do is let the genetic failures that can't survive on their own die out. e.g. pugs.

yes! I have tried to explain this to ppl i know before and have been called a terrorist. "but the cows/my corgi/whatever won't survive if u just set them free!!" well maybe not, but then that's our fault that we turned it into an abomination.

Genuine question but what is the reasoning behind clipping/piercing livestock?

They do it for pigs to curb the rooting instinct (basically so they don't tear up farmland with their nose and destroy it).
They do it to cattle for multiple reasons, but they most famously do it to bulls so they don't rage out and fucking kill whoever's leading them around.

Pugs are ugly because we bred them to be ugly. Dog shows and selective breeding should be banned tbh
