Re: AR crime against nature
- Ugh. no that wasnt at all what I was trying to
say. Fur is especially wrong because animals are
tortured and killed for an abosultey ridiculous reason.
There is no justification except human comfort and
profit. <br><br>I dont have a problem with social status.
I have a problem with people who need to torture
and kill animals so they can wear fur to look cool.
Cool is a state of mind. Not a garment. <br><br>Fur
pisses me the hell off in a big way and I'll tell you
why. I can understand that eating meat is a way of
life for people. I can somewhat sympathize with the
complaints that medical research is necessary, but I will
NEVER understand where people get the nerve to try to
justify such a ludicrous thing as fur. <br><br>In
essense, your argument is: it is ok to kill and torture
animals for mere human pleasure. no offense and you know
I try my best but I know no other way to express my
opinion here except to say that that makes me want to
vomit. When I see people wearing fur, every bone in my
body wants to kick them right in the teeth. Of course
I dont do it, but from the look in my eyes, I am
sure they know lmao
- Here's a new debate topic - animal rights v.
animal welfare. Excuse me if it's already been taken.
I'm just bored and need something to do. Personally,
I support animal welfare. I think groups like PETA
and HSUS definately need to sort out some problems -
don't think I that I think adopting animals and
everything is wrong, because I adopted a dog from our local
shelter last Feb., but look at the statistics (found from
<a href=http://littlegems.hypermart.net/1/ARA.html target=new>http://littlegems.hypermart.net/1/ARA.html</a>) - PETA sent Rodney Coronado's "support
committee", the guy who bombed the animal research place,
$45,200, which is 15 times as much as they donate to
animal shelters every year. Less than .03% ($5,000)of
PETA's $13.4 million dollar budget was given to shelter
spay/neuter programs in the US. 90% of PETA's donation money
was spent on it's new satellite offices in Germany.
HSUS does not operate a single shelter, even though
they have a 40 million dollar budget.That's enough to
operate at least one good shelter in every state, plus
they'd have enough money left over to feed, spay,
neuter, and save the lives of thousands of dogs and cats
every year. But they did manage to pay it's president
and vice president a combined amount of $446,882.
Something seems a little fishy, maybe they're really not
devoted to animal rights, just lots of $?<br>Whitewolf
