This.... constant murder of bulls just for their own entertainment and "tradition" is nonsense.


Lionwoman t1_jcx2hvp wrote

Point is that current generations don't like it but there's the old right-winged farts who still support it.

I vote for right-wing-old-fart fights in lieu of bullfights. Could be entertaining while serving a valuable purpose to cull the population of an invasive species.

Lefties are governing right now and they are doing nothing about it. Maybe it has more to do than old righ-winged and can include left-winged old farts too...

It's a fake left, PSOE for leaving hunting dogs, especially greyhounds out of the bill, yes the same greyhounds Spanish hunters are famous for torturing and also murdering. Podemos law the minister of equality to protect women resulted in releasing hundreds of rapists and pedophiles. Also refused to get rid of "the gag law" , which basically took away freedom of speech, and assembly

As spaniard I can concurre. Spain is such a joke. Politics are so corrupt all around the spectre. Left and right, nationalists and independentists, and don't even get me started on the crown... We're geographicly european, but we're so far behind from our neighbord France.. Heck, even Portugal isn't that big of a joke...

I also find the tradition of “running with the bulls” has become a BS event. Leave the horns as is and let the bulls run wild.

Encierros are very popular amongst foreigners and many don't know that it's just a preliminary activity before being tortured to death.

Pamplona in San Fermin is the most popular one, and it's amazing how ignorant many people is.

It's an abomination that hopefully dies soon enough.

This should be higher up so people can know about it


Mountain_Cut4457 t1_jcxd5fy wrote

Very slow, torturous murder, until the animal finally kneels down to die and the Spanish right wingers all applaud. Also shout out to PSOE for leaving hunting dogs, especially greyhounds out of the bill, yes the same greyhounds Spanish hunters are famous for torturing and also murdering

Shit!! The moment I read this I was thinking grey hounds. How are they possibly exempt?? So ridiculous.


Mountain_Cut4457 t1_jcyaq4x wrote

They are also giving each kid who turns 400€ for a cultural event which includes going to bull fighting. And the greyhounds is because they don't eat to lose votes with hunters. They don't actually care about animals obviously. Just votes.

The murder of any animal for sensory pleasure is nonsense. You're a hypocrite if you call for the end of bull fights but aren't vegan


lloydthelloyd t1_jcxj1ra wrote

You're an idiot if you think that sort of absolutism is going to convince anyone


DinosRoar t1_jcxkswk wrote

Animal abuse is abuse no matter who does it or where it happens.

If you can only criticise that by crying absolutism then so be it :)

There's an old saying "softly softly catchee monkey", it means you should creep up and be gentle when trying to achieve a goal, so by bashing people over the head instead of taking them gently by the arm you're working against yourself to achieve your outcome. The other saying is "catch more flies with honey than vinegar".


katz332 t1_jcy3t61 wrote

We can criticize how ineffectual your argument is. If you cared about changing the mind and hearts of man to help animals, shitting on people doesn't work. You're not actually helping then


MaxDickpower t1_jcxixwr wrote

So what you're saying is I should approve of bullfighting then?


lesboautisticweeabo t1_jcxrehq wrote

I mean yea. They kill the bull regardless of a bullfight or not. Most farms slaughter the bull anyway. If you eat beef, you are part of the problem and a hypocrite


MaxDickpower t1_jcxryua wrote

Got it. I will advocate for animal cruelty from now on 👍🏻


lesboautisticweeabo t1_jcxu3dh wrote

Don't hate cause I'm telling the truth

I'm not vegan but I am a vegetarian. Working towards being vegan but like.... maybe chill a bit? You have no idea who I am, let alone the appreciation I have for every single life around me down to the fly that most would swat away. Take a breathe and know there are many who care just as much as you do and are working towards true change ❤️💙


DinosRoar t1_jdq6922 wrote

Literally copy paste this comment to respond to your one above and think about how you'd react.

"Bull runs are animal abuse" = claps all around. "Gas Chambers are animal abuse" = whoa maybe chill a bit.


FL_Squirtle t1_jdr8u6x wrote

I'm not saying I disagree with you. But coming off so absolute and aggressive with your responses to people is exactly why others are so quick to discount what you say.
