Spot the vegan
@Taquito Speedo, you don't have to, they will tell you
@discount clown shop, and everyone else in the room... Loudly.
Dairy cows don't get slaughtered.
@BadassOverHere, they do once they stop producing. They also get their calls taken away.
I know, I know. Spot the vegan.
@Pmail, calves* not calls
Can't spell slaughter without laughter
Though I am a meat eater I can see where vegans are coming from - also some cows and animals are mistreated in order to get milk from them - again I'm not vegan but do respect the views of those who are
Not eating meat will not prevent cows from being slaughtered
@DeadStroke, exactly. It's easier to find more humane ways in the slaughter house, than to be against it altogether. It's not just going to stop happening. Lol.
@DeadStroke, yes, if everybody stopped eating meat, there would be no need to continue producing/mass-murdering cows= preventing cow slaughter
@CuddlyCandice, Preventing enough people from eating meat to put it out of business is near-impossible, you're pretty much just wasting it by not eating it.
@CuddlyCandice, and what happens to all those cows when they are no longer money making walking meat? Do we set them free in the wild somewhere (where I'm sure they will be totally fine having been born and raised on a farm). Cows only exist in their current numbers because they are raised for food. Even if we stop eating them, all the ones that exist now will die.
@thecorpsebride, Yes they will. But that's just the unavoidable truth. But no more of them will be produced.
How dare they disrespect Ronald Reagan with that username #endtumblr
They should've said something about how the cows get impregnated so they could obtain their milk, then when the calves are born they're taken away from their mothers who then get impregnated over and over again until they can't produce any more milk, then they're taken to the slaughterhouse.
@Pigwidgeon, source please?
@Pigwidgeon, Sorry, let me clarify. Credible source please?
@Whatssofunny, so true, credible source
@Whatssofunny, http://www.farmsanctuary.org/learn/factory-farming/dairy/ Here is your credible source. ".org" websites are considered by professors credible sources, and this source confirms everything I said. The PETA website said the same information, just with more emotional language. So there. You didn't need to be a dick about it.
@Pigwidgeon, I can buy a .org domain and put any shjt I want On there. Here's a quote that will serve you well - "just because you read it on the internet doesn't mean it's true" George Washington.
@Whatssofunny, I can find several websites including really boring ones with ".gov" domains that support my comment. Did you actually want a source, or did you just want to make fun of me?
@Pigwidgeon, maybe at some farms. I live near a few dairy farms and none of them do that.
@thecorpsebride, I think it's mainly the factory farms that do it. I was just pointing out that it really does happen.
@Pigwidgeon, you are supporting my argument. Having .org or .gov does not make it a credible source. Having facts that are not subjective and have been peer reviewed and verified by non biased 3rd parties make it credible.
@Whatssofunny, Those are indeed credible sources. When you're given advice on credible sources, it's specifically stated to look for websites ending in ".gov", ".org", or ".edu". Yes, ".org" cites are increasingly becoming unreliable, but there are still other credible websites that support my information. I can find peer-reviewed articles, and I would write you a research paper on how cows are treated on farms, but it would be a waste of my time. You don't actually want a source. You just want to be condescending toward those who choose not to consume animal products. I have better things to do than talking to some idiot on an app who doesn't know what a credible source is. You won't be satisfied no matter what I say, and you thrive on my frustration. My information was correct, I gave you sources, and I'm sure you have the internet connection required to do a simple Google search. This is where I leave you. Farewell, troll.
It's actually quite worse what all they go through but yes, they actually do get slaughtered eventually..
Oh sh*t I've been making cheese the wrong way
Infact it's rare that any dairy cow is slaughtered at all.
Actually you use the stomach of the cow to curdle milk
@WifitheRouter, only the enzymes (rennet) from baby cows can be used to curdle the milk, as it is needed to digest it. The rennet also doesn't have to come from the calf, it can be made using micro organisms. *the more you know!*
You do not have to kill a cow to get cheese… But it makes it taste better when you do
Perhaps is cows were not incredibly stupid we wouldn't treat them like they are stupid.
@Pestilence , and no, perhaps our (humanity) treatment of cows is wrong, but I don't see or hear anyone bothering to do anything about it. If you can find an equally efficient way of getting food that we all enjoy; then please enlighten us
@Pestilence , Protesters, vegans, vegetarians. And you don't need any animal products to live.
@Pmail, yes, I'm aware that most people are physically capable of switching to an all veggie diet. That's why I put the qualifier "getting food we enjoy" in there
@Pestilence , so it's for the sake of convenience that animals are abused? If you know that and are fine with it, then may want to reevaluate your position on the matter.
@Pestilence , So you're just making your answer impossible to answer.
@Archmage Araketh, I would prefer it if they were not, I usually get my meat from local farms. But I'm also aware that eating meat is natural; and a couple people complaining about cows won't make a dent in the industry. Not all of us can get meat that was cruelty free.
@Pmail, that's the point. Instead of trying to guilt trip people and trying to feel superior why doesn't one of you all bother to make a damn solution. People shouldn't bitch about something unless they have some ideas to change it for the better.
@Pestilence , As more and more people start to realize that we don't have the right to exploit other animals, and they actually make a change in their life (vegan/vegetarian), the demand for these things with decrease and eventually disappear. Not for a long time but it's basic economics. Supply and demand. People think "I'm just one person, I can't change anything" but millions of people have that thought. Little things add up.
@Pmail, it's also about the moral aspect of the whole thing. I would still be vegetarian even if I knew I was the only one and always would be, simply because I'd hate myself if I wasn't.
@Archmage Araketh, Same here.
@Pmail, are you sure that we don't have the right? Isn't that our right as the most dominant creature the earth has ever seen? (Just curious) I agree with the economic you mentioned, but it would be extremely hard to convert enough people to make a difference, and switching to that diet can be really expensive, where would one get there protein? Is it budget friendly enough?
@Archmage Araketh, And we we also don't have to right to abuse plant life.
@Pestilence , I get my protein from quorn (fake meat) I don't know if you have that where you're from. But it's not expensive and I suggest you try it. I also don't see why you believe that our apex status should make us inherently cruel or want to be.
@Archmage Araketh, I'll have to look into that, and I wasn't trying to say it gives us a right to be cruel (we shouldn't be) but rather a right to indulge in our carnivorous behavior. Shouldn't our apex status allow us to consume others like we have for thousands of years?
@Pestilence , I'd think that because we are at the top of the 'food chain' we should try to be better than animals, which we consider to be below us. We should deny instinct in place of compassion if we really want to live up to our self appointed status as 'leading species'.
@Pestilence , I also don't see the relevance of the time frame that we've eaten meat within. Be it thousands of years or 10, it shouldn't have an effect on what is the right thing to do.
@Archmage Araketh, fair enough. I see where you're coming from
@Archmage Araketh, So everyone eating meat is doing to wrong thing? How about you stop judging people for what they eat, asshole. Plants have feelings too you know.
@Pestilence , No. It shouldn't. Humans pride themselves on being smarter than other animals. They also talk about being more civilized than them (that's why people call murderers animals). So why don't we practice what we preach? Let's actually show that we are capable of moving beyond using other animals. And us being at the top of the food chain makes us the least important species. We would have very few negative impacts on the environment if we were to suddenly disappear.
@CriTiKa1, Even if they did, it takes about I think somewhere around 4 crops to feed the animals in one factory farm. So eating meat is causing more damage to plant life than just eating the plants. And they don't feel. They don't have brains or nervous systems.
@Pestilence , Protein is in pretty much everything. As for getting enough (especially is you're an athlete), beans have a lot of protein. And there are a lot of meat substitutes and protein bars and powder thing out there. For me personally, my spending at the store has decreased sense cutting out meat.
@Pmail, Many farms that grow crops are just as harmful as slaughter houses. The pesticides and insecticides that are used to protect crops are extremely toxic. They kill off pests that are beneficial to the environment. When these chemicals seep into water, it becomes dangerous to any animal that drinks from that water source.
@CriTiKa1, Well that's more of an environmental topic than an animal rights one.
@CriTiKa1, that's a nice way of rationalising your carnivorous tendencies, however you eat both vegetable and meat. Doesn't that make you double as guilty as us if all farms are really that harmful? Also, I never said that people eating meat are inherently 'wrong'. I ate meat for 15 years before I became a vegetarian. I personally don't eat meat because I've researched the economic, environmental and moral implications of eating meat and came to my own conclusion. All I'm suggesting is that you think about the source of the meat and if it's worth the pain the animal may go through.
Well if you want to do it right...
They kill her children though
Also cows don't have horns. Bulls do
Well the fact that the cow is just a head tends to put to death..... But I'm not a doctor or anything so I might be wrong...... But I play a lot of video games so I'm pretty sure I'm not wrong....
Whos laughing now?!
That cow's a tranny. Girl cows don't have horns O.o
N**** you stupid.
No, YOU don't kill the cow to make cheese
No but she did sizzle on my grill
They found the vegan
