The irony of meat-eating Animal rights activists
« on: December 09, 2007, 11:20:48 am »

This topic amuses me to no end, that people who are disgusted by humans treating their pets poorly, but have no idea what kind of inhumane, vile, disgusting, immoral, and torturous treatments are given to many animals that have similar and in some cases superior intellects to their own pets.

And they don't want to know, because pork just went on sale at the mini-mart.

But damn those people who don't change the water for Fido every day.

Most of the animal rights activists I know are vegetarians if not vegans.   I personally won't eat anything I'm not prepared to kill so I don't eat mammals.  (I got degrees in biology so I have some experience in that department.  Notice I don't do that anymore...)

You don't think you can 'believe' on the one hand that eating animals is part of your biological make-up (and health requirement) while at the same time thinking that using animals for fashion or to test shampoo isn't necessary?


You're THAT much of a purist that there is NO hypocrisy whatsoever in YOUR beliefs?

When vegetarians' numbers are approaching even 25% of the free world I will begin to worry about the hypocrisy of leather.  

Not really into hair products.

I have had the leather argument many times with the same result.  When people stop killing animals to eat them, then leather will be something other than the refuse of their feeding frenzy.  Til then, I use it gladly, instead of having it thrown away.

But there is plenty of hypocrisy in other parts of my life, no doubt.  I don't really appreciate your assumption that I am a purist, since I am not.  You are wrong there.

Read Thich Nhat Hanh on the need for much greater vegetarianism:

it's not only leather.

it's FUR as well.
that's not a "by product" of the food industry.
(and neither is leather anymore in practicality... they are almost always from DIFFERENT cows)



buy anyway the point isn't to convince YOU... the point is that I see nothing "inconsistent" with someone who thinks anally electrocuting minks is unnecessary but still eats fish.


now people who are anti-abortion but pro death penalty... THOSE people are morons.

Eat meat is ok for me. I do BBQs even in Winter season.

What it calls my attention is that several people try to humanize their pets to the point of believing that they are like us. These owners pay great amounts of money for their dog to have a psychological evaluation with the doctor talking with the animal by phone... Shocked

This sounds like Peta propaganda.  It doesn't make economic sense to "throw away" 1500 pounds of carcass just to get some leather.

I agree that the whole thing is disgusting.  But leather has to be more of a by-product of the meat trade by practicality alone.

Ask any meat-eater which they would give up first, and you have your answer.  But if there are sources other than Peta, which are borderline extremists, I would be willing to consider them.
