..after knowing that animals are being tortured, slaughtered and discarded with not so much as a shred of thought is that people I love actually partake directly and indirectly with this cruelty.
I have become increasingly agitated by this thought, so much so that I feel like I can’t be around these people for extended periods of time, it pollutes my mind. To know that I am not only thought of as someone with extreme beliefs but considered over the top and strange because I believe animals deserve respect, completely blows my mind. To even be mocked for it is something that incites so much anger in me.
What is extreme about not wanting a fellow Earthling to have its throat sliced open whilst fully conscious? To be skinned alive? To experience being completely eviscerated by the hand of a human being and a blunt tool? I will tell you what is extreme: Allowing an immoral industry to grow to such a level that its “commodities” are given absolutely zero consideration for their capacity to suffer and feel pain and fear. There is a holocaust going on every second of every day, torture is in every corner of every slaughterhouse and factory farm. There is no respite for the animals and there should be no respite for those responsible for inflicting such extensive levels of cruelty. They need to be reminded so that they may re-connect with their childhood love for animals. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, I come across a piece of footage or a story that demonstrates the prolific depths of cruelty at which these human monsters are capable of reaching. It is horrifying. In fact, it is something no words can properly describe, it is something only the harrowing screams of the animals can convey.
If your wife, brother, mother, father, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, cousin or any loved one was butchered with the same courtesy shown to farm animals would you turn around and say “well…at least he/she was killed humanely.”. You absolutely and irrevocably would not. You would never be able to release the thought from your mind of how violently they were removed from this world. Do not pretend it is the circle of life. Do not pretend it has anything to do with being the “highest in the food chain”. Do not pretend we have any rights or dominion over any being, there is no justification in taking the lives of innocents. Humans are an inherently cruel and callous life form and if I had the courage I would take my exit prematurely were it not for the thought it would inflict the same feelings of grief on my loved ones that stir in me now.
Say NO to eating meat AND dairy. Say NO to torture and animal slaughter. GO VEGAN.
She’d cried over a broken heart before. She knew what that felt like, and it didn’t feel like this. Her heart felt not so much broken as just … empty. It felt like she was an outline empty in the middle. The outline cried senselessly for the absent middle. The past cried for the present that was nothing.
I've been away from your tumblr for a while, I come back hoping for a bumper pack of your face and all I get is log cabins, whats that about?
