T-Shirt Tuesday: 'Not a Nugget' Fitted Tee

Posted October 23, 2012 by Diana Mendoza

Back by popular demand … it’s the “I Am Not A Nugget” fitted tee! 

win a 'I Am Not A Nugget' blue fitted t-shirt

If you wouldn’t eat your dog or cat, why eat a chicken or a pig? They all have the same ability to love and experience pleasure, and they are all capable of feeling pain and sadness. Yet every year, millions of animals are raised for food on factory farms and slaughtered in horrifying conditions.

Chickens have their delicate legs slammed into metal shackles, which can result in broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging. They often have their throats slit while still conscious. Millions more are scalded to death in defeathering tanks—again while still conscious and able to feel pain! These are just some of the abuses that chickens raised for food endure everyday in a system where profit reigns and where these intelligent birds are treated as nothing more than commodities.

We might not be able to put a stop to this industry—yet!—but we can make a difference every day by making the compassionate choice to enjoy vegan foods every time we sit down to eat. Haven’t gone vegan yet? Check out our list of three things to expect after going vegan, then go for it!

If you missed your chance at winning this tee before, leave a comment telling us why you won’t eat animals, and you could be our next winner.

Good luck!

    I stopped eating animals because its absolutely disgusting, and cruel. These animals have familys, friends, and rights too. Nothing has given us the right to take their lives away. I find it horrfying that some of these people can look these poor animals in the eyes, and then kill them. Those people don’t diserve what they have. I have a better connection with animals, then i do with my peers. So i feel as if my friends are being taken away. I will never eat an animal.

    I stopped eating animals because if you eat animals, you should eat humans. What I mean by that is humans are animals too right? So if you would eat any animal why not eat humans?

    Was difficult, I was only ten when I discovered where comes the meat that my mom buys every day at supermarket, so I decided, being a little girl, have a vegetarian life, I have pets, I adopted it and i love it, they’re my life and I can’t imagine that someone kill them as another animal in a horrible way, they needs respect, have rights, we are they’re voice, people need to hears in one way or another, could be a T- shirt or a video, but we have to change the world, and maybe someday the mankind will see animal’s death and murder like they saw a murdered men, for innocent animals, we have to make a difference ♥

    I stopped eating animals because i hate the fact that I would be killing one for my own sake? That just doesn’t seem right to me. I can’t stand the fact of eating meat any more. My family doesn’t really support the fact that im a veg. It hurts my feelings when this happens. But I just think to myself that I AM MAKING A DIFFERENCE. <3

    After being a meat eater most of my life I made the decision to cut animals from my diet earlier this year. As a lover of animals, I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t make the transition earlier or why my family continue to consume animals.
    I will not eat animals because they function so similar to humans. The feel the same emotions, pain and are intelligent beings. It’s so cruel that we use our dominant position to treat animals as lesser beings that do not deserve the same rights and respect as us. The conditions inside slaughter houses is horrific and as a passive viewer of the treatment of animals inside such facilities I cannot even fathom how it must be as an animal in the last moments of their lives experiencing such trauma.
    I hope that by not eating animals I can make a difference and encourage others to do the same.

    I don’t eat animals because since I was young I have believed every living creature has a soul. We are all connected, and equal. We should share compassion, and live as though we are all animals. Humans are no better, or advanced than them emotionally. They feel pain, love, happiness, sadness, fear, regret, and loneliness just as we do. Animals are here to share our earth, not to just contribute to it.

    I wont eat animals because they have the capability to love, feel, to be heroic and have just as much intelligence. They are like perfect people, but massively more cuddly. They make the best companions and can bring you a lifetime of happiness. The only difference between animals and man, is that animals don’t have it in their nature to be cruel- just instinctive.

    I don’t eat or wear animals because it’s wrong to take the life of an innocent creature for our own selfish needs. Nutrition can be gained by so many other ways. And wearing fur or leather well that’s a no brainer. No living creature should have to suffer for me.

    There are 3 main reasons why I chose not to eat meat. (I could write a whole report on each of these reasons but I’ll try to condense as much as possible.)
    The first reason was ethics. I don’t see why any animal has to die in order for me to live. It is completely unnecessary, and with so many alternatives available there is really no excuse. It is easier to be vegan now than ever. Are we really so egotistical that we believe an animal’s life isn’t worth our inconvenience of looking at an ingredients list for about 30 seconds?
    The second reason was environmental impact. A vegan/vegetarian diet reduces the demand for slaughter animals. This helps control the waste (feces and urine) that may contaminate water sources. It takes more than 2400 gallons of water and 16 lbs of grain to produce 1 lb of meat. Therefore, it is more efficient to grow plant-based food considering our limited resources (land and water).
    The third reason was health. A vegan diet is typically healthier than a standard american diet.

    I don’t eat animals because I won’t take part in supporting the industry that exploits, tortures, and disregards the beauty of animals by heartlessly ending their lives. I will not live life eating something that once had a beating heart, and knew pain and fear. I am a genuine animal lover who lives life with compassion not by the satisfaction of taste for a few minutes that cost an animal it’s life.

    I refuse to consume animals because it is ethical, moral, and just an all-around great choice. The cruel treatment and torture of the creatures sicken me; it is extremely unnecessary. (Besides, ALL life should be regarded as important!) Also, a meatless diet is more healthy for a human being; we are not made to digest certain things. In fact, since I’ve transitioned to vegetarianism (and soon to veganism) I’ve felt SO much better physically than when I wasn’t veg. The environment benefits from vegetarianism/veganism as well! It takes so much to produce meat for our consumption, and it really takes a toll on the environment (with the use of water, fields, and methane produced by the animals). By being veg, I believe that I am not only doing the animals a favor, but also the environment and myself.

    I would never eat meat because it is unfair that we think its horrible to eat a pet like a dog or cat, bit totally fine to eat a farm animal like a pig or cow… Besides, we are born to be herbivores, not omnivores, or worse, carnivores… Our teeth are for grinding plants, our intestines are not short which allow meat to pass through.. and to think that all those animals’ blood is on our hands is just wrong

    I would not eat animals because it’s cruel and gross. Milk has pus and blood in it. And meat causes animals to have their throats slashed open alive. I would never want to cause animals harm, ever. Chickens are not nuggets, why think of them like that? I will never touch an animal product to my lips again. :)

    I’m already vegetarian, but…

    I will not eat animals because I imagine the pain and abuse chickens, cows, and all other animals endure for something as insignificant and unnecessary as a nugget or burger. I’d give up nuggets and burgers (all meat, even) because I do not want to be a part of the abuse.

    I have been a vegetarian for four years now. I won’t eat animals because when I was 12 I saw a peta video on factory farms and slaughterhouses. I was horrified because of how they raised and slaughtered the animals. That also got me thinking about how animals can feel pain, have emotions, and families just like humans do. Nobody has the right to take an animals life just because they like the taste of meat, its disgusting.

    I will NOT eat meat because animals are living creatures,they have feelings,they can hurt,and can love. They deserve the right to live and be happy just as much as humans do! They don’t hurt us so why do we hurt them? Up until I was 15 I at meat because I did not know what really went on,when I found out I immediately stopped and ever since then I have tried to talk to other people and convince them that eating meat is wrong,it is animal abuse and there is no excuse for it! Humans can live happy and healthy lives without meat I have been doing it for 4 years now,I’m 19 and it is probably the best choice I have ever made! I will continue to support animal rights until the day I die. <3

    I have always hated the thought of eating animals. The fact that it was once living was enough to deter me from eating meat. As I researched more into how these poor animals are treated I completely removed meat from my diet and now I am in the process of going vegan. It’s so sad that these animals are raised only knowing pain, suffering and terror and that they will never know the joy of being free. Every living creature on this planet deserves a chance for a happy and full life. My dream is that one day there will be no more factory farms and the suffering these animals endure will be put to an end.

    I chose not to eat animals because I believe that it is inhumane and morally wrong. There are so many alternatives and suppliments now that there is no reason as to why we should have to eat meat. I have been a vegetarian for over a year now and there isn’t a day that goes by where I regret it. I feel so much better about myself. I have always loved animals, and the guilt would eat me alive when I would swallow a piece of chicken, or bite into a hamburger. It just tasted dead. Ever since then, I won’t go back!

    Because, first of all, a cow is a horse is a pig is a dog is a chicken. And so on and so forth. I would never eat my cat any sooner than I would eat a pig. They are companions and friends, not food 😉
    Second of all is how the meat industry is affecting the environment! All that waste from the factories is killing our atmosphere, not to mention that the oats used to feed the animals should be feeding hungry people.
