vegasmo: Funny how they all wanted the sausage until they were faced with the fact a pig has to die for it. Carnist Logic 101.

So they are willing to stop him killing when it’s in front of their eyes but when it’s hidden away they don’t mind at all…. 

Ohmygod. The sheer force with which some of them try to prevent the man from ‘grinding up’ the piglets. And yet a moment before they were tasting pig flesh; and were prepared to pay for the product of the murder… as long as they didn’t have to bear witness to it themselves.

This was me, guys. This was me not all that long ago. I was just like that.

If I can change my ways, why can’t you?

Notice how the first woman spits out the meat in her mouth when she see’s the piglet, as if she didn’t know she was eating a fucking dead pig before that moment.

The last woman hits him for doing such a thing while still chewing on a piece of sausage she has in her mouth.

Carnism is a weird weird way of living… There is no rhyme or reason, just a mastery of not thinking.

This is really interesting…says a lot about the lies people tell themselves..

There is a reason people cannot stand to face the reality of where their food comes from.

It’s because it is not natural for you to eat it. You know you can survive without killing another sentient being so DO IT.

I really can’t believe the reactions. Where the actual fuck did they think, their meat comes from?

A white sheep with a blue brand on her side and black feet is let in. The door closes. She runs around the kill floor. The foreman comes over to tell me they don’t want any of their faces in my pictures. The sheep waits, her hooves and legs
 are covered with the blood of other animals. The door opens again, and two more sheep are pushed in. The outside worker doesn’t realize the killing has temporarily stopped. The sheep start to bleat, soft, terrible, piteous cries. Streaming water from the hoses runs the old blood down the drain. And the killing starts again. Sheep bleat even after their throats are cut. They writhe. Every part of my being says to stop it, save them, which is impossible. Sue Coe - witnessing slaughter for her book Dead Meat. Photo source - Animal Cruelty Exposed (jb)

This is a documentary called eathlings. Its a short documentary going over all the animal industries and the cruelty that happens which most people dont know about, or dont want to know about, take an hour and a half out of your life to watch the documentary which has been called the vegan changer  <3

“SECRECY is a terrible, sickening BETRAYAL. People are sheltered from the reality of their food production &amp; slaughter houses. They walk into luxurious mega stores with everything dazzling and neatly packaged — with no clue of the horror behind it. Innocent beings imprisoned (for no crime), sexual abuse (forced breeding), being fed a manipulated diet &amp; drugs, over-crowding, mutilations, being denied normal behaviors, separated from children, suffering horrible abuse &amp; murder — IS WRONG. *Period* There is no sane rationalization that can justify it. The insane numbing, brain washing MUST END - so that so-called civilization can somehow be awakened &amp; re-born. ♥ Please, walk a path of HEART INTELLIGENCE…and live in loving PEACE with our EARTH FAMILY. ♥ MAKE THE CONNECTION ♥ GO VEGAN ♥ “

The Scavenger Bird… by ~Canislupuscorax
“Eating meat is natural.”
By that description, so is cannibalism, so is eating your young.
A predator doesn’t typically let its food source rot in small cages, stand in lines for slaughter, and all that other fun stuff humans are known to do to their food. 
It’s often insta-death and purposeful.

Alright omnis, if stomach enzymes weren’t enough for you, let’s look at teeth, claws/talons, and speed. Say you were out on the prowl in the Serengeti or Yosemite. You have no tools, all you can use to kill and eat are what you’re naturally equipped with. 
A carnivorous predator is able to run, capture, kill, and eat it’s prey with no tools. Can you? The fastest human in the world is Usain Bolt (27mph) but the average human can only run 6-12mph. That’s if you’re in shape. If you’re a regular at McDonalds, good luck with that…  Coyotes and foxes can run 45mph. Lions and tigers: 50mph. Fastest land predator? Cheetah: 70mph. 
How fast on average can your prey run? Chickens: 8mph. Pigs:15mph. Cows:17mph. Rabbits:35mph. Elk: 45mph. Speed is one thing, agility is another. 
Let’s say you can actually catch an animal. Look at your hands. All you’ve got is your grip. No offense, but your nails are pretty pathetic compared to the claws of a big cat. Biotin supplements will never catch up with killer claws. 
So if your bare hands can’t kill the animal, let’s examine our teeth. Look at those canine teeth! I’d hate for you to get all Hannibal Lector on me with those lateral incisors. Damn son! Realistically, the best most of you could kill is a bird if you go for the neck (Ozzy Osbourne style. FYI, he’s vegan now too). That said, a dove can fly around 45mph. With not gun, bow and arrow, or net- you’re S.O.L. Try biting into a pig. Yeah! Take those badass pre-molars and rip ‘em apart. Try actually killing an animal and eating it with your bare hands and teeth- big cat style. 
Now, let’s revisit digestive enzymes. Say you haven’t let you humanity get in the way and you’ve successfully caught and killed an animal with your own bare hands. Now eat it. There’s no fire, no salts and spices. Lions don’t add BBQ sauce to their zebras. Nor do they need a fork and knife to help them chew. 
I’m not going to acknowledge the god argument because science rules, but if you want to go there and talk about “god’s gifted creatures,” your natural hunting skills are chicken shit compared to a lion. Quinoa anyone? #vegansofig

Okay omnivores here’s the deal, you were not “designed” to eat meat. Omnivores are NOT carnivores. If you are really “on top of the food chain,” show me your talons! 😉 
What man has been able to do is invent tools to eat meat. Hunting an animal with a gun is not the same as a lion chasing down a zebra. Humans are only able to eat meat by technology, not naturally. If we have truly adapted to eating animal products, wouldn’t cancer, heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, and type two diabetes be decreasing, rather than skyrocketing? 
If we were made to eat meat, we wouldn’t have to cook meat with all of those salts and spices. I mean, if you LOVE meat, try eating it raw. Yummy! Humans can’t eat raw meat without getting really sick. See a carnivore’s stomach secretes powerful digestive enzymes with about 10 times the amount of hydrochloric acid than an omnivore or herbivore. Humans literally cannot stomach E. Coli bacteria, salmonella, campylobacter, trichina worms [parasites] or other pathogens. Lions can. 
So if you buy your meat at the grocery store, and call yourself “the top of the food chain,” please collect your thoughts, and understand that you’re an omnivore of the 21st century (which is basically an omnomnomnivore) that really needs to go vegan. #vegansofig

I appreciate this post because it’s not quite so snarky and angry as many vegan debates I see. Not that I do not agree 100% with being vegan, and the science behind it, as well as (obviously) the morality. I think since vegans are so frequently called out to defend their choice, it’s worth noting that the majority of people have been educated by systems that are bought and paid for by the very industries they are celebrating. Look at school lunches. Look at the lack of health and nutrition classes in schools. Remember, at least here on Tumblr, the majority of people aren’t even out of high school. They will do a lot of learning and growing in the next few years, and if they are met by people who wish to educate about the horrible conditions animals live in as their raised for food production, and met with people who try to appeal to emotion and compassion, I think the conversion success rate could be higher. Because remember, most kids just parrot what their parents have taught them, whether it be their biological parents or the parental system society has in place for us since we are born.
Not that it’s anyone’s responsibility to defend their choices. Being angry about what’s going on is of course natural and motivating to remaining vegan. No one HAS to defend their choice. But because of the internet, I see so many angry back-and-forth conversations, and I think if you’re going into this with the vision of changing others, you DO have to think about how you’re going about it.

If everyone ate a western diet we would need two planet earths to feed us we’ve only got one and she is dying.
We are facing the perfect storm. If any nation had developed weapons that could wreak such havoc on the planet, we would launch a preemptive military strike and bomb it back into the Bronze Age. But it’s not a rogue state, it’s an industry. The good news is we don’t have to bomb it, we can just just stop buying it. So George Bush was wrong. The Axis of Evil does not run through Iraq, Iran or North Korea, it runs through our dining tables. Weapons of Mass Destruction are our knives and forks.

non-vegan: I have canine teeth! I am meant to eat meat!
me: Horses have canine teeth. Pandas have canine teeth. Chinese water deer and musk deer both have long tusk-like canines. Hippos have massive canines. These animals, despite their teeth, are vegetarians. I'm sorry, but your wimpy-ass canine teeth aren't going to take down an antelope. Your lack of claws won't help you either, or your inability to digest copious amounts of raw and decaying flesh, fur or blood.
