This is so ignorant and an all around repulsive statement. Fuck whoever made this and fuck anyone that agrees with it
Please explain to me how you can claim to care about animals and then pay to have animals abused, exploited, and killed for mere taste preferences. If you eat meat you care about certain animals that you find endearing or important, but definitely not all animals.
Eating something doesn’t mean you don’t love it.Agreed. I love my dog so much that I’m going to kill and eat him tomorrow instead of taking him to the groomers.
I want you to look at this picture. Those are baby goats. I grew up with them. They followed me every where around the farm. Kicking and skipping, running and jumping, everywhere on the farm. The white one was Maggie and the black one was Eevie. Maggie was far more outgoing than her sister and had a lot of quirks and no qualms about coming right up to you for something. She was always making noise and climbing on top of everything. Eevie however, was the quiet sister. She’d jump around with her sister and I, too, but she didn’t go up to people she didn’t know like her sister. When she did make noise - she was soft spoken. She didn’t get into as many headbutting fits as her sister and she preferred to nap in your lap while Maggie was off climbing who knows what. They loved their treats but I don’t think I ever saw them craze over anything more than they crazed over sweetfeed. I taught them tricks. I bottle fed them. I climbed trees with them. I ran around with them and spent hours outside laying in the meadows with them and pulling branches down that were too high for them to reach. Nobody can say I didn’t love those girls.
But they grew old and you know what? I ate them.
I want you to look at this picture. These are dogs. I grew up with them. They followed me every where around the house, city, and country. Barking and playing, running and jumping, everywhere I’d take them. The white one is Max and the black one is Sandy. Max is far more outgoing than Sandy, he has a lot of quirks and loves people. He barks a fuck ton. Sandy however, is a bit more reserved. She plays at the dog park with Max and I, but wasn’t as keen on other people and dogs. When she did make noise - she was soft spoken. She gets into spats with other dogs sometimes, and prefers to just lay her head on your lap. They love treats! Max is weird, he goes ballistic for brocolli stems. Sandy is a bit more traditional and prefers a peanut butter filled kong. I taught them tricks. I raised Sandy from a puppy and rescued Max. I go hiking with them. When Sandy was younger, I’d spend hours and hours running around my grandpa’s farm with her. Nobody can say I don’t love my dogs.
They’re a bit aged though. Max is around five and Sandy is around 10. So tomorrow, I’m going to take these animals that love and trust me and slaughter them both. Not for any good reason; I’m just prioritizing my taste buds over their life. The look of betrayal and fear in their eyes won’t bother me a bit, and I won’t be the least bit upset consuming my beloved companion’s corpse. I dare anyone to say I don’t love my dogs.
How hard is it to understand that there is something pretty fucked up about EATING a LIVING BEING that you claim to LOVE?

Anonymous asked: Check YOUR arrogance, anon, for thinking you're better than everyone else. There is no greater arrogance than thinking you're entitled to use and abuse another species just because you can.
Anonymous asked: Just because someone eats meat doesn't mean they don't believe animals don't have feelings. The problem isn't our evolutionary desire to eat animal products, it's the alarming rate at which we do so. Our diets should only be about 10-15% lean meat, but our society is gluttonous, which leads to factory farming and other horrible things. I'm not evil because I eat meat. Just like someone can survive on only plant products, they could also survive on only animal products. Check your arrogance.
Believing that all living beings deserve basic decency and the right to live an autonomous life makes me arrogant? Okay, then I’ll gladly continue to be arrogant.
Humans cannot survive on only animal products.
Yes, society can be gluttonous. Yes, we should all eat less meat. Yes, factory farming is horrible- we agree on those things.
You’re not evil just because you eat meat. I wouldn’t ever claim that. I think eating meat is wrong, and I believe that it cannot be justified, but never will you find me saying that all meat-eaters are evil.
I will never understand how people can argue that they believe animals have feelings, and even claim to care about animal rights, WHILE FUCKING EATING ANIMALS. How. Someone explain how that works.
