So if you haven’t been hearing a lot about Chick-fil-A lately you probably live under a rock. 😛
It is now known that Chick-fil-A holds a anti-gay stance and donates money to anti-gay organizations. Now I see a bunch of human equality protests starting up at Chick-fil-A’s which is awesome! I’ve seen a few protests joined in by animal rights activists as well too. I know peta2 and other animal rights organizations like Mercy for Animals openly support LGBT rights, there probably isn’t an animal rights organization that doesn’t as that doesn’t make sense. I know I myself would be proud to protest against Chick-fil-A for both human equality and animal rights!
So this is basically just a post to try and help get the ball rolling. As now is a great opportunity to protest against a company that is against both human equality and animal rights.
@NicoleLynne That’s saddening to hear. If you remain rigid in your beliefs without questioning anything at least once, you aren’t doing any actual growing.
If that’s truly your stance, you don’t belong in the animal rights movement. You should probably start working with animal welfare. Because that’s a huge goal of the AR movement, to get everyone to the point where we can all be vegan.
I’m willing to believe you if you can show me the studies proving it. Until then, I’m bound to think that the research I’ve done over the years is correct. Meat eating, in our society, is not essential. It costs less money, is better for the environment, and leads to better health to be vegan. You do not have to purchase lazy foods to be vegan.
And when the demand for a certain type of product goes up, the more competitors will spring up, and the prices will go down due to the competition, as is how our economy is based. Basic high school economics can teach you that. That’s just how it works right now. Everyone will do anything to make more money these days. Why do you think more fast food chains are providing vegetarian foods? It’s not because they’re particularly fond of vegetarians, but because they realize they’ve been missing out on a particular profit that could have been made to fill their pockets with. So if we convince more people to go veg, when they absolutely can if they make the effort, the easier it would be for more to go vegan because of the demand for those specific products.
@drean Yeah right I know everyone can’t & there’s plenty of reasons I done typed this all before not doing it again… But I think it’s great to be V I really do but I stand by what I stand by & always will.
@NicoleLynne: Everyone can. It’s a matter of education about what is happening and a changing of cultural norms that aren’t beneficial to the world. People don’t want to change their minds. It doesn’t mean they CAN’T. And if you’re referring to the fact that some people eat their roadkill around here, that’s not out of necessity. They do it because people have always done it without thinking about it. The people who do it have tons of food sitting around in their houses. They do it because they want to.
There are tons of reasons to go vegan. It can improve your health, help you save money, save the trees, save resources, feed the hungry, fight global warming, save the lives of thousands of animals, and so on. These infographics are a great visual:
