Re: one other thing
- first off before i start, if anyone does insult
your intelligence it is because you have horrible
spelling. with a computer debate it leaves a little more to
assumption.<br><br>it isnt that I/we are trying to change your
lifestyle. it is that i believe if you looked further into
something you do you might find out that it is wrong, and
you have been de-sensitized over the years through
family/culture etc. i/we try to show you points so maybe in time
you will grow new ideas/perceptions of what you do.
you said you wouldnt criticize if someone was gay.
but i bet if someone hit on you who was gay you would
be offended. (if you arent gay i assume) but why?
because you have been conditioned by a society to think
that two guys together is wrong and horrid. the same
culture approves of two women together though. a person
is a person. if you are revolted by a gay act then
maybe you can see the correlation between my points.
you have been conditioned. what do you think about
that?<br><br>not all vegans think that everyone who eats meat or
traps are of lesser intelligence and, not to my
knowledge, is there any stereotype out there. it is just
that, if you can remain PERFECTLY healthy, save the
earth/environment, reduce suffering, and improve a majority of
health statistics... why not save a few animals in the
mean time? to us it is RIDICULOUS why someone wouldnt
be vegan.<br><br>about your pet... you have an
emotional attachment to him/her so you dont want it to die.
just like you have an emotional attachment to friends.
does it bother you when someone across the world dies
whom you had no connection to or knew what so ever?
maybe sympathetic but you arent going to get upset
about it. well what if you had the connection you had
with your dog to a lot of "farm" animals and you had
to watch all them get slaughtered. how would you
feel to see your dog slaughtered/trapped/or screaming
in pain? would that be painful to you? then you are
placing your pet higher just because of an emotional
attachment. your pet is the same "animal" as any other!
<br><br>tell me what you think =)
