LIKE WE HAVE LAWS PROTECTING DOGS AND CATS FROM ANIMAL ABUSE
YET WE SHAVE CHICKEN’S BEAKS OFF AND SLIT COWS THROATS
IT WOULDN’T BE LEGAL TO DO THAT TO A DOG/CAT
NO LOGIC HERE!!!
If I am to be a voice for animals, then how should I speak? Am I to whisper, when they are screaming in pain? Am I to be calm, when they tremble in fear? Am I to shout for mercy, as their throats are being slit? Tell me how I need to speak, for you to grant them their freedom.
I have to confess, even as a hard-core animal rights defendant, I think some people definitely take some things too far.
Like the “having pets/domesticating animals is evil argument.”
I completely understand where they are coming from ideologically, but practically speaking it makes little sense.
When you compare the life of a wild rabbit to the life of a domestic one, there IS no comparison. You likely saved 10 years of that rabbits life, and hopefully added a lot of other quality-of-life elements as well.
Also, I’m pretty sure anyone who has a pet cat can testify to how ridiculously happy they are if they’re properly taken care of.
Obviously the current pet “industry” has a LOT of problems, but to me, we shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Also some animals don’t do as well as pets, like birds or lizards, unless you invest a ton of time and money, which is fine if that’s your choice.

WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THESE CREATURES??? ):
If you wouldn’t personally castrate an animal without anesthetic,
if you wouldn’t work at a factory farm,
if you wouldn’t take a baby away from his mother,
if you wouldn’t brand someone’s skin,
if you wouldn’t cut off beaks, toes or tails,
if you wouldn’t deprive someone of light,
if you wouldn’t deny someone space to stretch or even walk,
if you wouldn’t drive the transport truck,
if you wouldn’t use the bolt gun or the electric prod or wield the knife,
why would you support the end product?
We Animals (via veginspiration)
This is one of the unfortunate results of the current system. We’re (as Marx would put it) separated emotionally and physically from the means of production of the things we own or use.
If this is disturbing and sickening to you, and you still “love bacon,” ask yourself the difference.
150 years ago, they would’ve thought you were absurd if you advocated for the end of slavery. 100 years ago, they would’ve laughed at you for suggesting that women should have the right to vote. 50 years ago, they would’ve objected to the idea of African Americans receiving equal rights under the law. 25 years ago, they would’ve called you a pervert if you advocated for gay rights. They laugh at us now for suggesting that animal slavery be ended. Someday they won’t be laughing.
While I don’t agree with pressuring other people to eat or not eat meat, I think we do have to acknowledge that the animal gets no say in the deal either way. Especially since we make them suffer before we kill them.
