But there are humane ways to treat animals even if they're used for food. Organic pastures and things.

  • A calf is still ripped away from her mother after birth so that humans can consume the milk made for the calf.
  • The calf is often sent to a veal crate, or raised for meat or dairy.
  • Mother calves are live their lives in a constant cycle of impregnation. In about 5 years (average), they are considered spent, and are sent to be slaughtered. The average lifespan of a cow is 25 years.
  • Cows are artificially inseminated by someone inserting their arm up her rectum to position the uterus, and then putting an instrument in her vagina to be impregnated.
  • Male chicks are considered useless for laying eggs and are killed after hatching.
  • In 2 years (average), hens are considered spent and are killed. Their average lifespan would have been 10 years.
  • Unprofitable infants are killed early in their lives. This includes ‘broiler’ chicks, turkey poults, and duckings. This also includes the runts of pig litters.

Every single one of these animals are killed so someone can consume their bodies/bodily secretions. You can feed them the most organic foods and give them the biggest free-range pastures, but at the end of the day they are being sent to slaughter and their lives are cut short. These animals are seen as nothing but profits and commodities. There’s no way to humanely kill a sentient being.

Yes, it does.

Guys get morning wood because our bladders fill up during the night and begin to press against our prostate, causing arousal. Our dicks don’t just feel the sun coming up and think “My time has come”

"I love nature. I’ve always loved nature. Ever since I can remember I would watch shows about it on Animal Planet and Discovery Chanel. Some of my earliest memories are of watching a show where a boy and Mother Nature talk about animals and the wild world, I can’t remember what it’s called now. I remember weekends when I would visit the beach and touch everything I could, and days when I would run around the zoo and my parents would have to chase after me. Something inside me still stirs like that of a child in awe and wonder whenever I touch nature, whenever I stop to look or touch it, whenever I can completely shroud myself in it. I only wish that people were as wondered by nature as I was as a child and still continue to be to this very day. On days when I am indoors my only desire is to step out and lay under the warm sun as it touches my skin, to feel I am one with it for that brief moment in time, that I am one with the plants who bask in the daylight, like the animals that crawl, or fly, or run, or lay beneath it. I want to see the world for all its beauty and chaos and appreciate it for all it has given to me, to us tiny creatures that live in tiny spots in tiny regions of this great big world. I feel that as a human being I should see everything that the world contains, whether it be through a screen, or from a distance so diminutive that not even air can prevent the impact of my fingertips onto its surface. It is a privilege that I do not want to let go to waste, especially since others of my kind, of our kind, rip at it and kill it. In fifty years, what do you think will happen to the things you love about nature? Do you really believe that they will still look just as beautiful?"
