Yeah uh we use pig heart parts in human heart transplants because their bodies are so similar to ours. Why draw the line at dogs? What about horses? Cats? Rodents? Birds? Fish? Those are all animals people keep as pets. As are pigs, sheep, goats, cows, deer etc etc. What makes dogs so different? If eating any meat is…
They wouldn’t like it one bit! A lot of the celebrities who are most vehement about saving dogs in Asia are happy to chow down on other animals. It’s weird. I have a dog I love but I understand it’s not my place to tell other people that their culture is wrong.
I will say that I saw elsewhere that Gus Kenworthy…
Pigs are just as clever, affectionate, expressive, curious and playful as dogs. There is nothing in the world pigs love more than having their tummies scratched. They get this look of pure bliss on their faces
The thing is that most people here in North America don’t give two shits about how the animals they eat are treated. This is about a white man pushing his entirely arbitrary moral standards onto another culture.
You could argue the same for any kind of meat. It’s funny how different societies arbitrarily see some kinds of meat as okay and others as not. A friend of mine was horrified when I told her that one of my grandfathers farmed rabbits for meat. There are Peruvian paintings of the last supper where one of the dishes is…
Have you been to a factory farm?
I wonder how Americans would feel if a bunch of Hindus came to their country protesting the eating of beef.
It is hypocritical for us to arbitrarily care so much more for dogs in these horrible intensive farming situations, than we do for the pigs and cows and chickens, who feel just as much pain, in farms here at home. That being said, I cannot WAIT to see Game Changers - the movie.
Oh well that’s an excellent point and strategy then!
Looking at the illustration for this post, my first thought: “not with those nails.”
Interesting video, thanks for sharing. The bigger amygdala in conservatives meshes with this study’s findings on fear, but I hadn’t heard about liberals having bigger anterior singulate gyrus. That makes sense with conservatives tending more towards ceding decisions to authority figures and disliking change.
There was actually a fascinating study I read that gave evidence demonstrating that conservatives are more prone to the emotions of fear and disgust than liberals. Helps explain why they take such panicky stances against immigration and minority rights.
“dittohead” always got me. Like, you choose to identify as someone who mindlessly repeats stuff?
“You’d never see Sean Hannity allow Van Jones to dismantle his argument, because some rational thought might spill into the brains of Fox News viewers.”
I watched him when FOX was young (I wanted to see what this new station was like), and he used to be part of a two person show called “Hannity & Colmes” where the…
If there was one thing that would make our world better, it’s universities and colleges sticking to only educating people for the job market. Studying anything else, increasing the world’s knowledge of anything else, is a complete waste of time and resources.
believed Barack Obama scaled the walls of Trump Towers to plant listening devices
But most of all, being a conservative means you can rest peacefully every night living in a fantasy world constructed from white supremacy and privilege
The best single sentence to sum up conservatism: “I’ve got mine, so fuck you.”
