Response to comments
Yesterday I posted this picture with the caption: The amount of hypocrisy seen in humanity is endless
I was quite shocked to see the number of stupid selfish comments added with no thought.
Yes, the picture is condemning people for eating a certain type of meat and no other. However it is irrelevant if you say that you have eaten that sort of meat. I don’t care if you’ve eaten a dog or that you don’t like pork anymore etc etc. It is completely irrelevant and no kind of comeback.This cartoon represents the hypocrisy of humans, especially when it comes to eating meat. I can’t stand seeing these little ignorant statements. Any kind of intellectual response would’ve been appreciated if not accepted, but please just ignore my posts if you disagree with them and have nothing decent to say to back yourself up. Every argument I have seen against being a vegan has been defensive or just really badly fought for and it is proven in the responses to this photo.
anarcho-artensa - Thanks for your insight, I’m sure that lots of people would say the same. You are just like the people in the photo to be honest.
cannabis-machineguns-anarchy - I didn’t ask for a description of how dog tastes, you tried to be funny, I didn’t laugh. And “What would it be like to hunt the largest known land mammal?” - I can see what type of person you are.
cobra-23 - I’m not sure if you are trying to be funny too or if you just felt like announcing your irrelevant “I’m a hunter” comment. Also, my argument is valid, you have not said anything worthy of opposing it.
therealkillthetraitor - What are these “dual functioning” animals you speak of? Another person speaking as if animals are actual robots - oh and I don’t care what animals you want to eat.
trueemergence - Seriously dumb response.
highcapacityassaulttits - You’ve probably already had it. Plus you are really weird for saying that.
aconservativereality - Closest thing to someone thinking before they type, but cartoons really can’t be blamed for hypocrisy on eating animals. Cartoons use all sorts of animals, including the ones that people typically eat, as main characters so I really don’t think this is the source.
carpe-diem-rah - Nobody gives a shit.
americas-liberty - Good for you, is dog next on the list?
The photo is also talking about how people criticise others when they do something the same. Looking at the tumblr pages of all those who made dumb comments shows how hypocritical and ignorant you are - and not only on this topic. The photo above is a generalisation. The general viewpoint of people in places like Britain and America is that there is a distinct boundary between animals we keep as pets and the ones we eat, hence the horse-meat scandal. So lots of you seem to be into hunting and killing different animals for fun. I don’t think that the majority of people in the western world are like that. Most people, even though they eat meat would not be able to kill an animal themselves because they feel empathy towards them. Those are the kinds of people who make comments like in the photo, not vegans/vegetarians like me and not hunting enthusiasts as you all make yourselves out to be. I am referring to the mainstream opinion.
Somehow even though you attempted to deny the facts of the picture I posted, every comment written backed up the point I was making, so thanks. The vast majority of humans are hypocritical when it comes to eating animals because the excuses for it just aren’t valid. I am emphasising the speciesism shown by most humans. I am not fussed about your exceptions. There are exceptions to everything, is that hard to understand?
Listen here tiny tot: You can bitch an complain all you want, but people have preferences and dislikes. If I, or any one else, chooses to eat a certain meat, that’s fine. If I don’t, that’s fine too. Get over it and stop trying to force people into your line of thinking. That’s what authoritarian dipshits do.
As for hunting: It isn’t “for fun,” though it is usually pretty fun. Most of the hunters I know of take what they kill and eat it as well as make use of as much of the animal as possible. To many, there’s a sacred bond between man and beast. Without the animals we hunt, we would never have evolved as a species and the world as we know it would not exist. That aside, the hunters that DO hunt purely for sport and don’t harvest what they kill are typically shunned by conservation hunters and, news flash, that’s illegal in most of the U.S.
You can call people hypocrites all you want, but I (just like most of the people I know who hunt) will try anything once. If I don’t like it, I won’t eat/hunt it again. When you dig deeper into society, it’s simply been ingrained in us to like certain animals and cringe at the idea of eating others. This changes depending on where in the world you are, so your picture is kind of one-sided.
People hunt. People eat meat. Some people like certain meats and some can’t even think of eating other types. Get over it and grow up.
I would save a human over an animal
Okay couple things. Human life is not somehow more important than anyone else’s. And I highly doubt you’ll ever be in a situation that immediately calls for you to save a human over an animal.
However, you are in a situation where you can save many human lives as well as animal lives by going vegan. Yes veganism is and always will be animals first. But it indirectly saves humans as well.
The question isn’t who would you save, the question is why aren’t you vegan?
Because I enjoy a nice juicy steak. Oh and if a cop has the choice of saving an animal or a human the choice will always be human because the human’s family will sue. The animal’s won’t.
I had to shoot two dogs a few months back because they were attacking an old man. I chose to save the human, not the animals. Easy choice.
That said, MmMmMmMm meat!
Anonymous asked: Everyone who hates capitalism should leave the United States immediately and petition to live in North Korea. There's zero capitalism there. And if they continue to stay here, they are total hypocrites.
Most people who want to bring down Capitalism either benefit greatly from it (by getting wealthy as all get out) or use the fruits of Capitalism (computers and the internet) to complain about it. I don’t think they are worried about being hypocritical D-bags. lol
