X-ray of a meat grinder injury to the arm and hand

Reminder that baby male chicks go through meat grinders by the billions because they are considered useless to the egg industry. What happened to this person’s arm happens to the entire bodies of billions and billions of baby chicks because people don’t want to eat some goddamn tofu scramble

Also reminder that working in slaughterhouses is extremely dangerous. Meat eaters are quick to point out how abused vegetable-pickers are, forgetting that they support both their exploitation and the exploitation of slaughterhouse workers and animals

Reblogging again for above comment!

A reminder that many big meat companies exploit immigrants by having them work for barely any money for several months and then selling them out to the US government for deportation so they can continue to find cheap labor. If you’re anti-corporatist or even humanist, you should be anti-meat industry.

"For a variety of reasons, many injuries go unreported in the “meat”-processing industry. In general, workers are afraid to report injuries out of fear of losing their job. In addition, many corporations pay supervisors an annual bonus for minimizing the number of worker comp claims at their facility. At one facility visited by Food Empowerment Project, a poster in the break room read: “0 Injuries Reported = End of Month BBQ.”In recent years, the industry has bragged about dramatic reductions in worker injuries. What they’ve failed to report is that the OSHA injury form was recently re-written to omit the category of repetitive stress injuries – the most commonly reported injury in the industry.The corporate mindset is glaring in this worker’s statement: Once the company got fined for safety violations and the manager told us: “Be careful or we’ll have to pay more fines” – not be careful because you might get hurt.[8]”

Friendly reminder that you can’t condemn another culture for consuming dog if you engage in consumption of any other meat.

"A glass of milk, a cup of yogurt, a slice of cheese, all require enormous amounts of violence, exploitation, mutilation, enslavement, theft and murder. None of these products come from happy, willing cows. All of these products can be made from almonds, soy beans, coconuts, cashews and other plants. It’s really a simple choice of compassion, justice and empathy."

~The Thinking Vegan

Vegetarians, you took a great step by not eating meat and it’s ok but please don’t forget that the dairy industry is just as cruel as the meat industry. Inform yourselves!

Anonymous said: People have been eating meat since the beginning of time. Animals should not be killed like they are today. There's just to many people who eat meat and it's not right to make someone feel bad because of something they like. Vegans seem more like assholes then people trying to help animals and trying to get people to stop eating them. There are animals who eat each other. Animals eat humans. Are you gonna tell an animal not to eat humans who are fully born sentient beings?

revolucionvegana:

Wow, I think I just completed my bingo card. If this was Las Vegas, I’d be rich by now.

Let’s play.

"People have been eating meat since the beginning of time."

I don’t quite think we have since “the beginning of time”, but let’s just say we’ve been doing it for a long time now. So what? Imagine what a world this would be if our current actions were based on what our ancestors did. We wouldn’t evolve. We’d be stuck with medieval habits and medieval morals. We could just kill each other without being held responsible! But no. We keep evolving. And as we evolve, we develop new morals. And those new morals bring new habits and new laws. And that’s how we build this society. 

"Animals should not be killed like they are today."

Indeed, they should not.

"There’s just to many people who eat meat and it’s not right to make someone feel bad because of something they like." 

So if someone likes beating puppies, it’s not right for me to make them feel bad for it? What if they like throwing garbage into the sea? What if they like assaulting old ladies and stealing their jewelry? Oh, but they love sapphires so much. 

Before you tell me “it’s different because that’s against the law and not the norm”, let me remind you lots of awful things were once legal and common practice. The fact that a lot of people are doing it right now doesn’t mean it’s morally acceptable.

"Vegans seem more like assholes then people trying to help animals and trying to get people to stop eating them." 

That’s your appreciation. What vegans are saying is that an action you partake in is wrong. But instead of reflecting upon that action, you’re taking it personally, as an attack. It’s not a personal attack. I’ve been in your place. I’ve also been told my actions were wrong. But I understood this is not about us. Just think about the real victims here.

"There are animals who eat each other." 

And there are animals who don’t. There’s no reason for us to do it.

"Animals eat humans. Are you gonna tell an animal not to eat humans who are fully born sentient beings?"

The difference here is that nonhuman animals can’t be held morally responsible for their actions. You don’t see lions in courtrooms, do you? Only humans are moral agents, because morality is a concept we’ve created. And if we establish certain rules, we have to play by those rules at all times, and not cling to nature or “animals do it” when it suits us. If we say it’s morally wrong to harm others unnecessarily, we have to be consistent. And right now our society is far from being consistent. That’s what we want to change.

lesmeaning:

instead of spending so much time assuring other people that “asexuals can have sex to please their partner” why don’t we spend time assuring asexuals that they are under no obligation to have sex with their partners to please them, and that if their partner cant respect their sexuality, they don’t deserve them.

I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.

I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.

I just watched a couple videos about Animal Cruelty and I am seriously considering becoming a vegan, or at least a vegetarian now. I know it won’t stop slaughterhouses from killing animals, but why not? I am disgusted knowing what people do to these animals. UGHHH.

A little bit of help!
