God forbid a carnivore have sympathy and compassion for animals, right? It's absolutely ridiculous to think that a meat eater can't want animals they consume to live happy and safe lives. Just because a person will eat meat, doesn't mean they don't appreciate and love the animal that died to feed them.

I can’t take this message seriously at all. "Just because a person will eat meat, doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate and love the animal that died to feed them." But, If you love animals you don’t see them as objects that live shortly only to benefit you. No animal needs to die to feed you, and they don’t die easily or painlessly. Animals suffer immensely for what? so you can enjoy a burger for 5 minutes? You can enjoy a veggie burger too. There’s no compassion in a omnivore diet, you’re eating the stress of a dead animal, don’t say you respect and have compassion for them. You can say you like being around cats, dogs and other pets.

Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do—to nourish their young—but calves born on dairy farms are taken from their mothers when they are just one day old and fed milk replacers so that humans can have the milk instead.
In order to keep a steady supply of milk, the cows are repeatedly impregnated. Several times a day, dairy cows are hooked by their udders to electronic milking machines that can cause the cows to suffer electrical shocks, painful lesions, and mastitis.
Some spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors; others are crammed into massive mud lots.
Cows have a natural lifespan of about 25 years and can produce milk for eight or nine years, but the stress caused by factory farm conditions leads to disease, lameness, and reproductive problems that render cows worthless to the dairy industry by the time they are four or five years old, at which time they are sent to the slaughterhouse.

My boss insists that I cannot call my vegan cheese as “cheese”, well I guess then they all should use the correct name for it.

They do have voices, but most humans refuse to listen to their cries…Go vegan…please…for the animals.  www.vegankit.com

If we couldn’t live without meat I could understand it, but why would you eat an animal who wants to live like you and me, when you can survive perfectly well on a veg diet…? Can you not see the media brainwashing you all? They should show the true horrors of what happens to animals, but they won’t ‘cause its all about the money..the media is awash with nice pleasant meat adverts. Its sickening, that’s not reality for lots of animals.

caring more about animals than humans is not a sign of empathy, it is a way to distance yourself from problems that makes you uncomfortable.

when you talk about the treatment of animals and say “what if this was done to humans!?” remember that this was, or still is done to humans.

I have zero patience for people who prioritize Veganism over anti-racism and feminism

Exactly my stance.

A lot of vegans don’t say that kind of stuff because they value animals over humans. Most of us value them equally, or connect to animals more than we connect to other humans, or are simply appalled that such violence is inflicted so casually upon sentient beings. 

The kind of violence present in the animal industry is still inflicted on some humans, yes. But while we’re absolutely horrified when isolated examples of extreme violence against humans occur, most of us - even those of us who claim to be anti-violence - are completely desensitized to the same violence occurring on a daily, systematic level of millions upon millions of animals. And we pay for it. Even after we are made aware of it, so many of us continue to contribute to it. 

If you care that it happens to humans, you shouldn’t pay for it to happen to animals. If you are against violence, you should go vegan. Don’t use the fact that vegans have made this connection, to continue to disconnect yourself.

I am an anti-oppression feminist vegan. Most vegans are, actually, and those who aren’t have as little grounds to speak for all of veganism as a racist person has to speak for all of feminism. Not only is it possible to care about what happens to both humans and animals, it’s completely counter-intuitive, counter-productive and hypocritical not to.

Go vegan. 

In the same way it takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal, it takes nothing away from feminism or anti-racism to also give fucks about animals. 

OP’s post has me soooo pissed off.

Big trees absorb more carbon than many little trees, and they are fast disappearing. It’s time to work harder at conserving the planet’s big trees, to protect them from logging, invasive species, devastating storms, catastrophic fires, and encroaching development. It’s one of the reasons forests require management, a term that many people find odd. Trees are the planet’s lungs. ~AR
