Vegetarian documenary logic:
Pick the WORST slaughterhouse in America with the WORST practices and say that ALL of the slaughterhouses are exactly like that one, SINGLE, slaughterhouse. GENIOUS!

If the animals are being abused and killed to make meat, you might as well eat the meat, otherwise their death was just a waste.

You'll love this, nyxeos .

Worked for a hog confinement. Had to take a several day orientation and repetitively test out of anti animal abuse skills. (How to move, load, care for, whys, hows, call the hotline, equipment, ect.) There are so, so many things that cannot be done. And a lot of technologies our company uses others do not, for animal comfort. It's an incredibly clean facility, for pigs anyway.

This video 'leaks' out, posted on youtube of the inside of our facility. People are tossing piglets from one person to another to move them, there are piles of dead piglets from botched castrations, a pregnant sow is housed in a gestation stall where she only has a few inches to move forward or back, piglets are being swung down to hit the floor, killing them.

It looks horrifying, but it's like making a model town and having plastic Godzilla destroy it, but filming from a close angle. It took them longer than 30 days to get all the footage because nothing unusual ever happens. They actually got tired of waiting/working there, and recorded while THEY swung the already dead (natural causes) pigs into the floor off camera. Everything was staged to make a point, including the "blotched castrations."

The gestation stalls? What happens if you put pregnant sows in a group? They kill each other. They pick on the smallest, it gets crated off, then the next, then the next. But they still want to be close to feel secure. It makes them contented, even if human emotion wise, it's hard to put into perspective. I could go on and on.. Did you know it takes 8 seconds to castrate a pig? Literally. 8. "But we don't use pain killers!!"

I've never met a vegetarian irl who tried to force their beliefs on anyone or use veganism as a way to feel morally superior to anyone else.

I think this is probably another internet thing, just like feminism/bacon, where people are more obnoxious online than they actually are in real life.

Well depends, I'm a vegetarian for dietary reasons, but in college, when some guy who always sits in the same spot in the college cafeteria found out I was a vegetarian, he told me I was almost at enlightenment, then he introduced me to a group of his friends who were all vegan and they tried to get me to be a vegan by making watch a documentary about how it's wrong to eat meat and use their milk or eggs for our own purpose. They told me they released a bunch of cows into the nearby woods and they cost the rancher a lot of money in losses and he had to file for bankruptcy. They felt really good about it and said they wished they could have "enlightened" the rancher instead but they have no regrets because it was "the right thing to do to free those enslaved animals". I don't think they realized that cows have been subject to artificial selection for so long that they are practically useless on their own. They are literally only useful for meat and milk now.
#211 to #198 - knightkao **User deleted account** (03/31/2014) [-]
yeah, there's vegetarians that eat for personal reasons and then there are the animal lovers. I've seen my fair share of those crazy peta videos that attack harmless things like pokemon and compare it to dog fighting and slaughterhouses

like you said earlier livestock like cows, chickens and pigs are domestically bred like dogs then drugged to be used for their resources then slaughtered. The same can be said about zoo animals, since they were raised in zoos all their lives and have no means of survival if they were to be freed. those "freed" cows are most likely dead now.

It's absolutely ******* pointless being a vegetarian/vegan, and extremely pretentious.
The worst types of these cunts are those with iPhones.
It's like "Oh, hurting animals is wrong, but forcing men, women and even children in a foreign country to live a life of servitude is entirely acceptable. I mean, it's not like Apple factories in China are located directly next to where their employees work, and there's definitely not those suicide nets around said factories, because living such a life of assembling ****** technology is the most fun thing ever!"

Seriously, how many hipster cunts who claim to be vegan do you see with iPhones? How many do you see in Starbucks? How many use Amazon?
Are humans not worthy of your moral protection?

Also, if you're going to fight against the harming of animals, you would need to boycott every single company associated with any company associated with said activities, and do you know how ******* impossible that is, seeing as nearly every company is a subsidiary of like 30 companies; and they have to use fossil fuels to transport your ***** food to you, which harms the environment for the animals as well.

And, let's be honest, brutally honest. We are ******* animals, and we are designed (coded if you will) to be ******* meat-eaters.
You can talk of "morality", but that is nothing more than a mere, and unfortunate, side-effect of consciousness. We are not born into the world shackled by some sort of meta-physical code-book.

Obviously I don't agree with factory farming, and in all honesty, I think people should raise and kill their own food. Everything in life serves a purpose, even though the purpose has no ultimate meaning.
Why restrict the possibilities in life by upholding some moral code someone else (probably Peter Singer) bestowed upon you?
Notice how meat tastes ******* sick? That's because it's natural to enjoy it.

(Christian False) God put man on this to serve animals. We were made to do things for them and survive.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." (Genesis 2:15)

"You shall not pollute the land in which you live.... You shall not defile the land in which you live, in which I also dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the Israelites." (Numbers 35:33-34)

"If you besiege a town for a long time, making war against it in order to take it, you must not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against them. Although you may take food from them, you must not cut them down. Are trees in the field human beings that they should come under siege from you?" (Deuteronomy 20:19)

My brother is vegetarian and he just tells me that the idea of eating meat just is disgusting to him. He's okay with other people doing it, but another animals flesh in his mouth feels wrong to him.

He doesn't use apple products but I imagine that there's a degree of ignorance with those things. If the iPhone is stained with the blood of the Chinese child worker then maybe it's comparable. If it comes with a sticker that says "Yao made this on a 34 hour shift in her local sweatshop" then maybe there's an obvious and clear guilt to it.
#155 to #24 - anon (03/30/2014) [-]
Spot on. I'm an environmental scientist, so I clearly care about animals and their habitats, but being vegan does not really make that much of a difference in the end. We're designed to be omnivores, so eating meat is perfectly natural. There's nothing wrong with being vegan, but it doesn't necessarily make you better than someone else for not eating meat. If you want to feel better about yourself for eating meat, just buy from local producers who use humane methods and don't inject their livestock with so many hormones that they can't walk. If you want to prevent cruelty to animals, don't buy from the big producers like Tyson who abuse their animals. It's not that complicated.
User avatar #209 to #24 - nighkey (03/30/2014) [-]
I agree with everything but the last point. It would be too costly, small home farmers can't produce enough to even touch the population of their local city/town, and only 3% in the food driver population of the USA work in food PRODUCTION.

From illness to gene banking to production costs/efficiency... It would literally be impossible for our country not to have a food crisis if everyone had to make their own.

User avatar #36 to #35 - finblob (03/30/2014) [-]
He should have mentioned that. The way he says it makes it sound as if all vegans and vegetarians are assholes because they can't/won't eat meat.
User avatar #145 to #36 - learnthisline (03/30/2014) [-]
You're right.
That's the way I see it.
Vegans aren't too bad, I mean they do put a fair bit of effort into it, but if they have any sort of iPhone, etc. then I think they're straight up cunts. Bigger cunts than non-Vegan iPhone cunts, because at least those cunts know they're cunts, whilst Vegans with iPhone really are the worst - they give a **** about animals, but not slave labour.

And Vegetarians are the worst - the ******* worst! How can they claim to give a **** about the welfare of animals/sentient beings, and then still use them for milk, etc. Pretentious doesn't even go half way to describing their demeanor in my view.

You say "can't" eat meat - then they wouldn't be vegetarians/vegans would they? Vegetarians oppose harming animals for moral reasons; those who don't eat it because it makes them feel sick are not voiding it for moral reasons. Unless, they are ultimate faggots and psychologically make themselves feel sick.

Notions of "morality" and "free will" are so decedent, yet so prevalent in modern society, that I can see why people still uphold them as universal truths, and hence base their lives upon them - or think they are basing their lives upon them.

Vegetarian means they don't eat meat, there are no moral implications to the word. If someone doesn't eat meat for any reason they can be called a vegetarian. Some vegetarians claim to do it for animals or whatever but that isn't a core construct of being a vegetarian.

No. No it doesn't.

Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons. Many object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life. Such ethical motivations have been codified under various religious beliefs, along with the concept of animal rights. Other motivations for vegetarianism are health-related, political, environmental, cultural, aesthetic or economic.

My sister is a vegetarian. She doesn't own an IPhone or even like apple.

She doesn't shove it down peoples throats either. When she visits I go out of my way to ensure our meals are something she can eat. She always tells me not to worry about it and she can just throw something together with what's in the fridge and she is always thankful that I plan meals that she can eat as well.

Growing up she was never a fan of meats to begin with. She ate them but rarely enjoyed them. Sometimes it's simply a preference in taste rather than a moral thing. She enjoys eating fruits and vegetables and the like. She doesn't even really eat those fake meats or anything like that because it's not her preferred taste.

As much as vegetarians like to tell push their beliefs on people, people who eat meat do the same things to vegetarians like her. Our aunt tries telling her she is not vegetarian because she drinks milk. People regularly ask her if she eats fish. She is always getting snide comments from people about how she doesn't eat meat or is missing out. Following a Vegetarian or Vegan path isn't the problem like people seem to make it out to be, the problem is the people of this world. The majority of people with a belief different from others like to judge those other people and often classify those other people as being judgmental.

I am not saying there are not Vegetarians/Vegans like that, but when it comes to the topic of Vegetarianism, non vegetarians are just as bad as vegetarians on judging and pushing their beliefs.

Omnivores can't "push their beliefs" since it's our ******* evolutionary norm. It's not a trending opinion, it's biological fact. Deal with it.

My brother's a veggie, and I used to be one before I outgrew these antiquated notions of morality and free will; but he's got an iPhone, and it just sticks me as consigning oneself to a life of flamboyant hypocrisy, which I find, honestly, perplexing to say the least.

I don't understand veggies who drink milk as well, or eat chocolate. Does animal cruelty exist on some sort of scale or continuum to them? Can a person harm another being (and all beings are sentient, we've just neglected this fact for years) 1/10 up to 10/10? And then, where on the scale should we draw the line?
To me, using any other being for your personal gains would fall under the classical notion of "immoral", although I highly doubt there can be any such thing as 'morality' or 'ethics' seeing as there's more recent evidence now suggesting we lack what most people would Moniker "free will".
But doesn't using a cow for its milk equal using it for substance? Don't we possess a primal instinct to hunt or farm these sources of food and drink? There's biological forces driving us to commit such acts. But, on the other hand, there's also biological forces which create our consciousness, ergo our sense of morality - so your sister, like my brother, and all other vegetarians are only doing the same thing as those who eat meat, i.e. obeying the processes which govern their existence.

Which regards to vegetarians forcing their beleifs on others: I'd think they were terrible veggies if they didn't; seriously; They can see that doing something is so 'evil' that it's led to them abandoning one of their innate instincts, and yet they're okay with others doing it?
I regularly attend protests in support of Palestine - I can't really justify why in such limited space, especially accounting the fact I've just argued that morality is a fallacy - but if I see anything pro-Apartheid, or Israel-made products, i always speak out against it, even if people get pissed off - because it means something to me.

As much as I agree with some parts of what you've said, I seriously don't understand your logic. "You're doing A in order to help X, but you're also do B that hurts Y, therefore YOU'RE ******* HYPOCRITE AND THE FACT YOU'RE DOING A DOESN'T MATTER".

It feels like you think that you either are a PETA-greenpeace-unicef-hippie-fanatic or you're not really helping anyone.

I'm "The Underground Man," brother.
I'm neither, nor.
I embrace my hypocrisy. In fact, the book I'm currently writing is called "Confessions of a Hypocrite."
Essentially, I feel like every action is in contradiction with the last - or at least in contradiction with "morals" or "principles".
But as far as the anti-Apartheid Israel, but not a vegetarian, I think that's imply because I recognise we need to eat meat (always free-range, etc., but we don't need to enslave and torture other humans.

But, I'm not really looking for recognition, I think I enjoy the sound of my own internal voice too much to care.

Except one is the natural order of nature, and the other is a neo-religious doctrine that serves no purpose but to bestow a holier then thou attitude upon its acolytes.

i'm a vegan and i found that woman to be an insufferable bitch.
it's great sharing your ideas and helping people see things from a different perspective and hope that you turn someone else vegan, but shaming someone just because they have a different diet to you is horrendous!

Would you shame someone who eats a live dog or cat?
User avatar #247 to #99 - redstonealchemist (03/31/2014) [-]
i certainly would! i have two cats and they're my best friends
User avatar #258 to #247 - wthree (04/01/2014) [-]
So why not shame someone for eating any other animal?

I mean after all "shaming someone just because they have a different diet to you is horrendous!"

At this moment, scientists have found a way to take an a tiny part of an animal (talking about cells) and with that, GROWING it, thus making meat that doesn't require murdering an animal. MEAT OF THE FUTURE!

P.S. I like meat

My argument to vegans and veggies is, If we weren't meant to eat meat why do we have teeth designed for biting meat and a digestive system capable of digesting it?
User avatar #98 to #86 - wthree (03/30/2014) [-]
We weren't "meant" to use the Internet either faggot.
User avatar #101 to #86 - Crusader (03/30/2014) [-]
I don't think they say we aren't meant to, they realize that humans have evolved to need protein, and animals were the most readily available source.

I think what they believe though, is that we don't need to.
User avatar #160 to #86 - princesswhale (03/30/2014) [-]
We are capable of digesting it and eating it because that's how we evolved, we used to need meat to survive as we need a lot of protein in our diet and meat was the easiest source. Now however, we don't need it, it's a luxury and there are many forms of protein, if anything most people eat far too much protein. Also with that argument in mind, yes I have teeth capable of eating meat, but I also have an appendix so having certain body parts related to enabling digestion of certain foods doesn't mean **** .
User avatar #102 to #86 - kanadetenshi (03/30/2014) [-]
Nobody is saying we weren't meant to eat meat. They're saying that eating meat is unethical. You can't derive an is from an ought.
