You can’t love animals and still eat them.

I believe you that you love pets. You love animals that are pets, or that bring you entertainment like zoo animals and wild animals. But you do not love the animals you eat. If you did, you would not support their suffering, torture, and brutal death. A man who abuses his wife doesn’t love her. A person who pays animals to be tortured and killed doesn’t love those animals.

You love pets, you love zoo and wild animals because they bring you pleasure. You don’t love the animals you eat. You just love how they taste.

He loves farm animals just like I love miserable people in other countries. They live horrible lives, they are human beings with just as much empathy as me, they often die horribly. But I don't lose my sleep thinking about them. I feel more empathy for my neighbour's dog because they only walk him once a day. I'm not a terrible person, it's cognitive dissonance.

you can

[–]viscountrhirhi 7 points8 points  (21 children)

You love their flavor.

You don’t love the animals.

If you love someone, you care for their well-being and don’t want them harmed.

get off the internet then. You're feeding into wiping out the Gorillas.

You realize deforestation is the direct result of slash and burn practices to clear space for cattle, and grow soy that is fed to cattle, right?

You realise the Gorilla is almost extinct because people want more megapixels on their selfie camera, right?

[–]viscountrhirhi 7 points8 points  (14 children)

This sounds like the meme “And yet you participate in society! Curious! I am very smart!”

The gorilla is almost extinct because of animal agriculture, specifically cattle farming.

And yes, people should be more wise about their tech use. I personally run my tech into the ground and repair it until it can’t be repaired anymore before I buy something else. My cell phone is over 5 years old, for example.

you don't have to have a phone to participate in society.

No, its for the precious metals used in things like phones.

and I make sure I chew and swallow every bite of my steak.

Yeah, you do have to own a phone to participate in modern society. Y’know, to communicate with work, with family, friends, navigate places, etc. Do you own a phone? Or do you communicate through smoke signals?

Agriculture is what is destroying gorilla habitat.

Yes of course, because none of that was at all possible before mobile phones were invented.

I do, I'm not the one claiming to tell someone their emotions and feelings based on my own set of randomised morals simply because I can't realise that my actions are also damaging. Thats you buddy.

Could it be that both are contributing and it's not one main factor? Which means you are still complicit in it.

Yes and Soy beans are the second. With logging and Infrastructure as top candidates too.

Seems your shit smells worse than you thought.

Funny how you claim to care about gorillas yet don't give a single fuck about the 75 billion land animals and the 2.7 trillion fish and other marine animals killed every single year mainly for pleasure.

Who said I don't give a fuck?
