Shaming Meat Eaters Does NOT Save Animals - Stamp by xxsunslashxx Shaming Meat Eaters Does NOT Save Animals - Stamp by xxsunslashxx
I am a vegetarian. However, I'm sick of other vegetarians and vegans making asses of themselves over people eating meat.
These people are just giving vegetarians and vegans a bad reputation. These people are the reason other people think were stuck up jerks.
For all you vegetarians and vegans who want to help out, let me give you an example of the ONLY time you should voice your opinion.
Example:
Non-vegetarian person: "Why don't you eat mean?"
That's when you can tell them. That's the only time. And try to avoid saying things like "Eating meat is an abomination and all meat-eaters should be ashamed of them selves!!"
Seriously, you're making everything worse.

When I see a cow, I don't think, "I want to eat that," but when it's slaughtered, drained of its blood, chopped up, and put on a grill, I get hungry.

Very well stated. I'm a meat-eater myself. I wouldn't last one day without it, or animal products. But that's how I am. If someone came up to me and asked what I was eating, and I said "a roast beef sandwich, want to try it?" and they said, calmly. "No thanks, I'm a vegan/vegetarian." If they were calm about it, I'd say, "oh, okay, cool," and make a mental note not to offer them any of my meat, or something that has an animal product in it. I know that not all vegans/vegetarians are nimrods, and I'm happy to see more of the sane ones on the Internet. It's always the vocal minority of a group (mostly consisting of morons) that gets the most attention, and makes the good ones look bad.

They don't listen because they straight up don't care.
Talk to them nicely, they'll accuse you of preaching. Show them scientifical facts, they'll accuse you of preaching. 

There are tons of documentaries; there's cowspiracy, which highlights the consequences of eating animal products over land and sea. There's forks over knives, about health. the World Health Organization has already said that eating meat literally raises your chance of getting cancer as much as smoking does. 

There's earthlings, which exposes the cruelty animals suffer, how pigs are submerged under boiling water alive, drowning on it, their lungs burning from the inside after an entire life of being caged & unable to lay down, without seeing the sunlight, after having their genitals and ears cut off without anesthesics, raped to produce more babies.

This information already exists, its already out there and it has been for a while now, and people refuse to listen, because its easier to blame activist for ''shaming personal choices'' than to reflect on /why/ they're being shamed.

Shame on anyone who financially supports the anal and vaginal fisting of cows for milk and veal, the grounding alive of baby chickens for eggs, the mass killing of billions of beings every year, and tries to shame the people who try to stop such cruelty instead of reflecting on their own acts.

I understand your anger. My host tries to tell people that meat can be just as bad as the animal abuse they are complaining about, but whenever she does, they jump down her throat over it. 

I do not think it is a matter of them not caring, but a matter of them not wanting to know. A lot will not listen, but as the generation goes on, more and more people will understand. The best you can do now is spread facts, as shaming them will just make them even angrier towards your point of view.

Shaming meat eaters does not solve the problem. However, pretending nothing's wrong with animal agriculture also won't; this will only make it worse and will only maintain problem. In my opinion it's best to take the middle-path by raising awareness and educate people about the harm and environmental disaster caused by animal agriculture, which has nothing to do with our opinion but with facts. The misery of billions of animals, millions of starving people and the leading cause of deforestation, water pollution, greenhouse gas emmissions, habitat destruction, animal extinction, ocean deadzones and many other environmental disasters (animal agriculture) should not be ignored.

I'm also curious about your opinion about meat eaters forcing the earth, starving people and animals and their babies to die for their choice?

This is why I try to eat holistic or local. There are a lot of ranches in my area, and I see the cows and goats and llamas out in the field enjoying life, not stuck in pens and force-impregnated like name brand animals. It helps locals and it's less cruel.

Local/organic cattle ranching is even worse to the environment than factory farming. It takes more space, resources and causes more pollution. That's why factory farming started in the first place. Regardless of the nature of their lives before slaughter, farmed animals get sent to slaughter. There is a misconception that animals get to "live out their lives" and then get killed. Animals get killed as soon as their purpose is served, or as soon as they reach a profitable size, which is at a fraction of their potential lifespan. The very definition of grass-fed/organic/free-range animals is actually very loose and can vary wildly. It doesn't mean that the animals have any kind of quality of life necessarily, it just means the farm has to meet some arbitrary requirements to earn that title. That's not to say that every single farmer treats their animals dreadfully while they live - some actually do give their animals a fair standard of life before sending them to have their throats slit. But it's ignorant to think it's the norm in the first place.

The standard legal form of slaughter for animals is for them to be "stunned" and then have their throats slit. For chickens and pigs, the stunning is generally done with an electric shock, and for other animals a pneumatic bolt pistol projects a metal rod into their forehead. It is claimed that this renders the animal 100% unconscious, but if you actually look into the facts, slaughterhouse workers will admit that there is no way to verify that this is the case for every single animal, and indeed the process doesn't always work, isn't followed routinely, and indeed, the "stun" can wear off while the animal is being killed. But regardless of the fashion of execution, there isn't a justification for taking the life. It is still taking the life of a sentient being, for your enjoyment ultimately. If somebody killed your companion animal, I doubt you'd say "that's fine because you did it humanely" as described above.

"It is still taking the life of a sentient being, for your enjoyment ultimately."
1. :thumb588097301:
If I don't know the animal personally, I just don't care, sorry. Doesn't matter what animal. Hell, I'd eat another PERSON as long as I didn't know them, it wasn't the brain I was eating and it was prepared well. Now, if I knew the animal personally, I wouldn't eat them. If they were a baby I wouldn't eat them (I will never touch veal; it's cruel to kill a baby for food).
2. "...for your enjoyment..."
There ARE people that have to eat meat, you know that, right? It's usually people with iron deficiencies. There are also people that tried to go vegan and got really sick from it due to nutrient deficiency.
3. I don't get the whole 'you're eating another living thing' deal because...plants are still alive when you eat them.

""They have analagous structures," Pollan explains. "They have ways of taking all the sensory data they gather in their everyday lives ... integrate it and then behave in an appropriate way in response. And they do this without brains, which, in a way, is what's incredible about it, because we automatically assume you need a brain to process information."

And we assume you need ears to hear. But researchers, says Pollan, have played a recording of a caterpillar munching on a leaf to plants — and the plants react. They begin to secrete defensive chemicals — even though the plant isn't really threatened, Pollan says. "It is somehow hearing what is, to it, a terrifying sound of a caterpillar munching on its leaves."

Pollan says plants have all the same senses as humans, and then some. In addition to hearing, taste, for example, they can sense gravity, the presence of water, or even feel that an obstruction is in the way of its roots, before coming into contact with it. Plant roots will shift direction, he says, to avoid obstacles.

So what about pain? Do plants feel? Pollan says they do respond to anesthetics. "You can put a plant out with a human anesthetic. ... And not only that, plants produce their own compounds that are anesthetic to us." But scientists are reluctant to go as far as to say they are responding to pain.

How plants sense and react is still somewhat unknown. They don't have nerve cells like humans, but they do have a system for sending electrical signals and even produce neurotransmitters, like dopamine, serotonin and other chemicals the human brain uses to send signals."
www.pri.org/stories/2014-01-09…
"Earlier research has shown that plants have zombie-like qualities. They are able to maintain their circadian clock, and cellular functions, long after being harvested and sold in grocery stores. This internal clock continues to regulate their aspects of metabolism, including respiration,even as you add some Italian dressing and stick a fork in your salad.

Researchers from Rice University in Houston hypothesized that fruits and vegetables might still benefit from external stimuli — like sunlight — even after being harvested.

Laboratory tests showed that fruits and vegetables were still able to produce the hormone jasmonate — a chemical responsible for defending plants against insects and other herbivores -- even after being harvested. This chemical also has anti-cancer effects in humans."
www.everydayhealth.com/diet-nu…
Even if the animal is alive when it is killed, it will be dead afterwards. A steak in the store will be dead, but that head of lettuce? Those bananas? They're alive, and they'll continue to be alive, even as you're eating them. The worst part is they can 'feel' you eating them-and there really isn't anything they can do to stop you. How morbid, eh? But we continue to eat them. We don't have to-technically all we need is the chemicals in the food. This will be an interesting and eye-opening read:robrhinehart.com/?p=298
Not everyone can do this of course, but many people can.

Hell, I'd eat another PERSON as long as I didn't know them

The fact that you don't care if a person/animal dies for your greed is not the point. No oppressor gives a flying fuck about the misery of his/her victims, but that is not the point. Remember, this isn't about YOU, but about the victims.

I will never touch veal; it's cruel to kill a baby for food

Veal is a by-product of the dairy industry. If you're against killing babies, why do you consume dairy? In the dairy industry, only females are required because males don't produce milk. Like all mammals, cattle produce milk to feed their young once they give birth. It is a misconception that cows just produce milk non-stop, they do so only once impregnated. As such, when a male is born, he will be slaughtered. Either he is culled immediately, or he is sold into the veal industry and then killed after a few weeks of living in confinement, or he is sold into the beef industry and killed as soon as he reaches a profitable size, which will be about one year old. If the calf is female, typically she will be removed from her mother so that the milk can be stolen, and then she is used in the same manner. Once a mother's milk production is less proftable, she has her throat slit. That generally happens after two milking cycles, when she would be around six years old. The average lifespan of a cow is about twenty years.

It's usually people with iron deficiencies.

It is a myth that iron can only be found in meat. Many plants are rich in iron and on a healthy, balanced plant-based diet it is almost impossible to get an iron- or other deficiency. I recently made a comic about this, in case you're interested:

VV3: I tried being vegan, but... by Pupastuff

plants are still alive when you eat them.

If you care so much about plants, then you should go vegan. It takes 5-25 pounds of plants to produce just 1 pound of meat, dairy or eggs. Over 70% of all the crops we grow in the US and over 65% of all the crops we grow worldwide is used as cattle feed. This includes 98% of ALL soybean meal produced, which is 85% of all soybeans produced worldwide. So if you are so worried about saving the plants, you should stop consuming animal products. And did I mention that over 70% of deforestation is caused by animal agriculture in order to make space to grow crops meant to feed cattle? This results in the destruction of many, many more plants and trees + the extinction of thousands of endangered animals a year and also the starvation of millions of people who depend on these forests for survival. Plants don't have a brain, nor a central nervous system, which are 2 things required in order to feel pain. I don't know if you actually read the research published about plants, but scientists discovered that plants release mustard oil as a reflex to certain vibrations. That is not the same as "hearing themselves being eaten" as, like scientists say, plants lack a brain and a central nervous system and are therefore not sentient. But I think that you know why it's obvious that you can't compare moaning the lawn to cutting the throat of a living sentient being like a human or a non-human animal. I don't doubt that you're intelligent enough to see why people get upset about dogs or other animals being harmed and not about someone putting his/her teeth into an apple.

There are no peer-reviewed (<--- this word is very important) studies about that plants experience pain in a similar way we do.

I'm curious what you would think of hunting for your own meat, and by hunting I mean responsible hunting. Clean shots with a gun, not wasting any parts, not shooting during the wrong seasons, not shooting if you're not sure on species, etc. 

I personally see animals as our equals, not our food, or belongings, etc.
I mean we are animals too, predators and prey just like them so I see nothing wrong with us eating them, just the way we do it is wrong to me [mass farming mainly].

There are tribes in some parts of the world who have to hunt to survive. If somebody has to kill to survive, then that's their only option. Anybody who isn't in that situation shouldn't bring this up as it has nothing to do with them. I often see people who bring up this argument comparing our modern "hunting" to that of wild animals (often lions). Wild animals kill to survive. They must kill to eat, otherwise they would die. Whether they kill on instinct or are aware of their predicament is irrelevant, we are not in their situation. If you live in modern society and have access to crops, vegetables, fruit, grains etc, then you have no obligation or need for animal products. Also, lions exhibit all kinds of behaviour that you would seek to avoid, for instance, violent territorial disputes, and male lions will kill the cubs of a female he wishes to mate with because she won't mate while she has cubs around. Lions are not good ethical role models. If you see animals like our equals, like you claim, I suggest you start treating them as such.

"There are tribes in some parts of the world who have to hunt to survive. If somebody has to kill to survive, then that's their only option. " Many tribes also are able to grow vegetation, but they still hunt for meat as well. 

"
Wild animals kill to survive. They must kill to eat, otherwise they would die."
Actually a lot of predatory animals kill for fun too, cats are a great example. They have access to food from owners yet they still kill whatever they see. 

"
If you live in modern society and have access to crops, vegetables, fruit, grains etc, then you have no obligation or need for animal products"
So? Just because we don't need to, doesn't mean we can't. I mean, I have access to meat as well, should I go on an all-meat diet?

"
 Lions are not good ethical role models"
I never said they were.

"
 If you see animals like our equals, like you claim, I suggest you start treating them as such." 
I do treat them as my equals, killing for meat doesn't mean I don't. 

What is so wrong about hunting for your food in a modern society? You can't argue that it's as cruel as factory farming, all you've said is we don't 'need' it. That doesn't make it wrong then.

So you're saying that a farmer will breed billions of more animals for the millions of vegetarians and vegans, just to throw their bodies (and millions of dollars on profit) into the trash can because vegetarians and vegans don't buy the meat? That's a pretty silly claim if you think about it. Supply and demand, look it up! If meat consumption declined, fewer animals would be bred and killed. It's that simple. Last year, 400 million fewer animals were bred and killed fod food because people eat less meat today.

Everybody is responsible for what they are personally doing. The way for numbers to rise is for individuals to take accountability one by one. If you want for there to be multiple vegans to make a difference, then become one. There are hundreds of millions of vegans in the world, so we are not just one person. In the UK, 12% of people are vegetarian or vegan. If you look at the age range of 16-24, that ratio rises to 20%. It is completely worthwhile to do this and we are having an effect on the industries. Imagine if everyone who is vegetarian/vegan started buying animal products again - that would be a giant increase in demand. As such, we are keeping demand down by continuing to avoid animal products

There is certainly an amount of meat that spoils in the store after a while, just like with bread and vegetables. But if you believe that farmers breed literally billions of tonnes of meat for vegetarians and vegans just to throw it away, you're delusional. They just produce the amount of meat they expect to sell. It's like this with every type of food production. I sold vegan cupcakes at a convention a while ago. I expected to sell at least 200, so I produced 250 pcs. Do you really believe that I should've produced 1000 pcs instead, just to throw 750 pcs into the trash can at the expense of my wallet, so I would go bankrupt in no time? Nope. It doesn't work like that. Like I said: supply and demand. Look it up. No supermarket is stupid enough to buy meat for millions of more people who aren't going to buy it. That's just common sense.

Vegans have no effect on anything
The less people who buy something, the less demand there is. Animals are not being bred and killed regardless of demand. If you have a country of 10 million people, do you think that in a country of 5 million people that the size of the animal farming industy is the same? Of course it isn't. Likewise, if you have a country of 10 million non-vegans, do you think if that country instead had 5 million vegans and 5 million non-vegans, that the animal farming industry would be the same size? Again, of course not. Shops sell animal products, and then restock appropriately. If something isn't selling as well, they will order less. As such, the warehouses they stock from will then have appropriately sized orders from those shops, and will stock less ingredients to make those products, which means ordering less animal products from slaughterhouses and farms, which means less demand for animals to be bred in the first place. It's just simple maths.

We are just doing what wild animals are doing
I am not really sure what this means but I will try to cover it - if the suggestion is that "you live you die, therefore killing is fine" then this would justify killing companion animals and also humans. If the suggestion is "we kill an animal so that we can live" then this is false. Animals are killed for the enjoyment of eating their dead bodies. It is not a matter of survival, as proven by all the hundreds of millions of vegans in the world.

Wild animals kill to survive. They must kill to eat, otherwise they would die. Whether they kill on instinct or are aware of their predicament is irrelevant, we are not in their situation. If you live in modern society and have access to crops, vegetables, fruit, grains etc, then you have no obligation or need for animal products. Also, wild animals like lions exhibit all kinds of behaviour that you would seek to avoid, for instance, violent territorial disputes, and male lions will kill the cubs of a female he wishes to mate with because she won't mate while she has cubs around. Wild animals are not good ethical role models.

If you're going to go ahead and watch every video link you're given, you're going to end up seeing a lot of weird and disturbing shit, including bizarre porn. That's just the internet for yah. 
And personally, I think everyone has the right to freely share information and express their beliefs. 
It's just when they start harassing people and calling them monsters for not believing what they believe ticks me off.
This applies for vegans, vegetarians, "pro-life" believers, religious groups, etc. 
I don't think sending video links is that much of an offense. I personally think the problem lies in the name calling and such.
