Growing up and even now I have learned in depth about wild animals and other creatures. But when I learned about farm animals and other commonly eaten animals I was taught “milk comes from cows!” “chickens lay eggs!” very basic facts about how we consume and use them. When really these animals are so interesting and are not just “dumb” or “food” animals. People disconnect themselves from these animals so they feel less guilty when eating them.
I’m not crying you’re crying
Lmao there are seriously people on this site who put their dogs and cats on vegan diets
Brb buying a rabbit and feeding it nothing but raw meat
There are seriously people on this site who aren’t even vegan but still think that their opinions on animal abuse matters
There are people on this site that suddenly think they are trained in the animal sciences and animal nutrition like a vet is and that they can throw their shit around.
If I payed for a shirt and the guy that sold it to me killed a man and took it from him that’s not me that’s killing the guy that’s the guy that sold it to me he’s the murderer
Do you know how consumerism works?
If people stopped buying animal products, other people would stop murdering animals for you. Your wallet directly supports people who raise, confine, torture and yes, murder, sentient animals. Not buying animal products = not supporting animal cruelty.
Logic. Use it. Your tshirt scenario makes zero sense.
Omfg. Is this person serious. Please, tell me they’re not serious.
if u ever purposefully hurt an animal in front of me i will punch u so fuckin fast ill break the fuckin sound barrier dont fuckin test me watch ur back pal
but paying for it to happen behind closed doors is totally acceptable, please continue eating animal products for the sake of your own taste and convenience
but be nice to dogs and stuff!
Since the release of Blackfish, a documentary which chronicled the troubled life of the orca Tilikum (above), in 2013, the percentage of Americans opposed to cetacean captivity has risen to 50% (up 11% from a 2012 poll). SeaWorld’s attendance has dropped 13% in the first quarter of 2014, with earnings down 11%. The Blackstone Group, which purchased SeaWorld in 2009, reduced their holdings of SeaWorld’s stock to 25%. The National Aquarium in Baltimore is now considering ending their practice of displaying dolphins and retiring their animals to a sea pen. The ‘Blackfish effect’ has changed so many lives, but what about its star, Tilikum?
Despite a year of SeaWorld’s costly PR campaigns, YouTube videos and commercials touting their exceptional animal care, Tilikum and the other orcas at SeaWorld’s parks haven’t seen any real improvement in their lives. Their tanks haven’t been expanded, broken family bonds have not been repaired and Tilikum the deadly 12,000 pound bull orca is still floating like a cork in the dank pool that made him famous. After a year of protests, reduced turnstile clicks and constant attacks on their social media platforms, SeaWorld still hasn’t gotten the message and Tilikum, the one being whose existence should have been impacted the most by the Blackfish effect, remains untouched by its message.
SeaWorld is never going to volunteer to do the right thing by Tilikum or any of their 28 other whales, it’s up to us to #emptythetanks.
