We don't eat animals because they "deserve it". We eat animals because we can farm them and meat is an amazing source of nutrients.

So since we can, we should decapitate goats?

I'm not an expert in the field, buy we should use whichever method is optimal for putting down the animal while trying to avoid needless suffering.


corpjuk t1_j4hhi63 wrote

Would you consider the act of putting down the animal needless?


RAMAR713 t1_j4hyyte wrote

If I intend to consume an animal's meat, then putting it down is necessary. There are methods of extracting certain organs from animals while they still live (like duck livers (foie gras), for example); I am against these practices since they generate needless suffering.

So consuming animals is not necessary for survival, it was only for taste pleasure. We can make very tasty food without killing. Does your thirst for meat justify decapitating goats?


RAMAR713 t1_j4iare0 wrote

It's not just for taste pleasure. It's a great source of protein, for example, much better than any vegetable. It's a very convenient and dense source of nutrients overall. I don't see any impediments to animal slaughter as long as it's for consumption; I consider it justified.

There is plenty of protein in plants such as seitan, tofu, beans, legumes. There is no need to eat meat for survival. Mass breeding and killing is wrong.

We should stop telling people to go watch animals get decapitated, they don't deserve it.

You should also stop eating bananas, quinoa, and a fairly large list of other agricultural products that are loaded with human rights abuses, human slavery, and child exploitation because they don't deserve that either.

I'm going to guess though that you're one of those people who doesn't give a good god damn about human suffering because of how obsessed you are over animal suffering. One day we will actually see people getting screamed at in public for eating a banana just like they do for meat products, but it'll probably be a while before the woke community decides humans are worth protecting.

Yes we should stand up against human exploitation. There are 20,000 edible plants. You don’t have to eat bananas, quinoa, avocados, almonds, etc.

So because there is human exploitation does that justify decapitating goats?

Except there’s no place has 20,000 plants, maybe big cities and you have to visit multiple supermarkets or buy from internet.

In most places far from cities, they have only dozens edibles plants and 3 or 4 kind of animals, which feed their society for thousand years without fail except bad weathers.

we need to also stop eating basically all produce grown commercially and sold at grocery stores because of the human rights abuse TFW's receive. I bet /u/corpjuk shops at the farmers market "because its local "organic" produce. (hint: it isn't)


corpjuk t1_j4i4z4i wrote

I shop at the same stores has everyone else, I just stopped eating animals. It’s not perfect, but it’s a huge and easy change.
