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 feel that most of us can’t handle seeing these images because we have been awakened by the truth and horror of the meat industry. Most people haven’t seen the torment and eat their meat without a thought. But after watching the videos, you can’t unwatch them as the images replay in your mind and I find it hard to think of someone who can continue to eat meat afterwards.
For those who have had their compassion and kindness towards other beings awakened, yes it is hard to watch these videos again. But at least we can eat with a clean conscience.
I cant. like, i just cant. Ill forward them and say if you watch this and dont care you obviosly dont have a heart, or something like that, but i’d rather read about it then watch it. that way i can chose wat to imagine. I just dont have the.stomache 4 it
I cant really sit through a lot of videos without haveing soe sort of reaction. I have seen many movies like Earthlings, Forks over Knives, Food Inc, and a lot of Peta videos. These succesfully converted me but I couldnt help but feel haunted by the looks of their faces. Like the raccon dog that was skinned alive an lifted his head up one last time. That pulled directly on my heart strings.
I’ve had this with a few videos, in which I’d have to pause and take a breather. I don’t watch animal cruelty videos unless there is some amount of information I need to glean from them. I wouldn’t watch it just for the sake of watching it (which is probably why I haven’t seen many vegan documentaries, I prefer reading documented accounts).
I’d definitely force myself to sit through an entire video if I was having second thoughts about eating dairy or eggs though.
