"Food animals" are just as sweet and smart as dogs and cats.  It should seem as unthinkable to eat a piglet as to eat a puppy.

My little boy Karl is missing. He is my pride and joy, as are all my children, and I will do whatever it takes to bring my baby home. 

I would NEVER usually ask this but please reblog this for me. You never know who might see it and who may have information.  

Thank you!

Please help me find my son.

Today is Japan Dolphins Day, which means there were international protests against cetacean captivity and especially Japanese dolphin drives/slaughters.

@amylwaz shot this video at SeaWorld Orlando showing us that sprinklers were turned on during the planned protest in an attempt to deter the protestors.

This actually backfires on them because:
A) SeaWorld tells visitors to conserve water to help wild animals and the environment, while they unintelligently water their grass in broad daylight.
B) Orange County, FL set a specific regulation: “No watering is allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Water only when necessary. This ordinance applies to landscape irrigation regardless of whether the water comes from groundwater or surface water, from private well or pump, or from public or private utility. Nonresidential properties water on Tuesdays and Fridays.”
SeaWorld consecutively ran the lawn sprinklers at their entrance from 9:30 a.m. to after 12 p.m. Today is Monday. This is illegal.
C) This looks petty on SeaWorld’s part because it appears as if they are trying to make the protestors miserable enough to leave.
D) If anything, the water works well in the protestors’ favor because it attracts more attention to them and cools them down in this summer heat.

SeaWorld was reported to the police and water management.

Nice try, SeaWorld. ;)

If that’s what tortured taste like I need some of that

Why do people always feel the need to add some grotesque insensitive comment to shit like this? Do you think it makes you clever? Do you really think you are being original?
Because all I am seeing is that you put your taste preferences above the life of other animals. And that you desire negative attention from vegans, and that you need have your feelings justified by other nonvegans so perhaps you can feel less guilty.
Or maybe you’re just an immature, attention seeking asshole with no respect for life.

No I just like tasty food .. And I like hunting it’s really fun 😂

This is about what I expected from you.
Will a nonvegan ever prove me wrong here?

God put animals on the earth to feed his children not for you to fondle yourself over

Try using something other than religion to justify your actions. Especially when you are talking to an atheist.
Also I know many Jews and Christians who would find the fact that you think god put animals here for us to exploit revolting. Why would a caring god put sentient beings here for us to abuse? Why would “he” make it so that they feel pain and emotion if “his” humans were meant to kill them?
And what about other regions that actually center on respect for all life? Or do they not count because they are not your idea of what religion should be?

Do you know what if people had actually read the Bible they’d see pretty clearly that God did not in fact ‘put animals here for us’. The Bible clearly, and repeatedly, state that man is not above animals, the righteous care for animals, God loves all creatures as much as He loves people, and perhaps (if you’re going to use the Bible as a defense) you should note that people were meant to be Vegan (until that whole apple eating fiasco) and God intended all animals to live together in harmony alongside humanity (the for humanity is never mentioned). Also all animals go to Heaven (as they fucking should). The Bible is telling you the in Gods perfect world we are all Vegan - and some of that is in Genesis so all you really have had to read was a few pages. 
Oh and by the way, if you’re a Christian you shouldn’t really be eating pig as a whole. (If you follow the old Testament - which probably where you think the ‘animals are for us’ come from).

Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.

Spreading the word.

My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.

FUCKING RELEVANT

If someone is doing something that makes you uncomfortable like this, you do not need to be nice. Swear, kick, scream, make the asshole cry. You don’t have to nice, be as rude as you want
