Skimmed the thread, this may have been said already.
To say neutering your pet is on the same scale as modifying its ears/tails is ludicrous. Obviously, you haven't spent much time around a cat or dog in heat. It is a PAINFUL experience for them, their body is SCREAMING at them to procreate. They are uncomfortable, mating itself is uncomfortable and even painful. Cats and dogs do not have sex for pleasure. If you think altering an animal to save it from those uncomfortable feelings and urges is similar to cropping ears, you're an idiot.
As I've seen many people say, cropping, docking, declawing, and debarking are all borderline cruel. It does not serve a purpose except to be fashionable. And that's an ugly way to be. Train your dog so it won't bark, offer your cat other things to scratch, and leave its ears/tail alone.
