When I ate meat (I was fifteen, roughly five years ago), I was curious about the meat industry so I started watching videos on peta. I watched a lot of the videos, and became vegetarian immediately after seeing these videos. I also watched videos and read Free The Animals (about ALF, amazing book btw), and then became cruelty free in everything that I bought. So basically, I’ve seen and read a lot about animals..
I find now that watching any kind of video or anything, make me quiver and I absolutely cannot watch it no matter how hard I try. Does anyone else feel like this, or is it just me?
Is this wrong of me?
I’ve never really watched one of those videos … It’s like they just make me sad and cry.. I mostly just read about things.. I don’t like watching videos although I always try getting other people to watch them. I just can’t though. I already know what’s on them. Pain and suffering. :[
I used to be able to watch videos like that, but I can’t anymore. Well, I can, I just avoid it. The other day I saw a video posted on here about the fur industry in China. It showed poor little animals being slammed on the ground and skinned alive. The skinned alive part was what really disturbed me. I still have the image in my head of the poor animal, now furless, being thrown in a bin on top of his friends, looking so, so sad and slowly dying. I was sickened and felt horrible. How can people be so cold and cruel??
I forced myself to watch that one, and was reminded of why I don’t. /: I don’t think it’s wrong that some people can’t watch them. Those videos are out there to make people aware. If someone is already aware and too sensitive to watch, I don’t think it’s necessary.
God I cannot watch the majority of the PETA videos because the abuse and treatment of the animals makes me so sick. I cry when I watch most of them 😛 so I decided “Okay I’ve seen enough” and I stopped. But I often do share them to show the cruelty. You aren’t the only one!
