Welcome to Walt Disney World in the summer.
I wish they knew how much everyone hates them.
Entering the park. In the lines. In the stores. In restaurants. On the streets. On the rides. Waiting for the parades. Waiting for the fireworks. Exiting the park. In my fucking nightmares.
A non-vegan’s “love” for animals reminds me of that selfish kind of “love” that often happens between humans too.
It’s when all you care about is what the other person can do for you, how they can make you feel, and you depend on them for your own happiness. You—perhaps subconsciously—believe they exist for you.
It’s the self-centred inability to view others within a context that does not involve you.
This is the stuff so many abusive relationships are made of, and it is also the rotten core of the supposed love a speciesist feels for non-human animals.
I see so many picture posts of baby animals with the comment, “I want one!”
"I want to possess this cuteness, because it makes me feel good. I will also eat its mother, because eating bacon also makes me feel good." "You’re so pretty and you make me laugh. I will continue to abuse you, because it makes me feel better about myself."
That is not love.
Loving someone means not wanting to possess them. It means loving them despite the possible absence of you in their life.
Love is allowing someone else to exist for themselves.
The view right outside my tent isn’t too bad. Sometimes I can’t believe I get paid to do this.
how do i also get paid to do this
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.”
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH STRAIGHT BOYS
not killing myself is a personal achievement but you cant really brag about that at dinner parties
