Okay so, there’s this guy that constantly harasses me on facebook, he’s my best friend’s boyfriend. He’ll post like, people lining up dead bunnies to spell out “PETA SUCKS” on my wall and crap like that. And he sits here and says that me and my boyfriend (who also loves animals and is a vegetarian) are no different than people standing around with bibles trying to shove religion down people’s throats. And I’m just like, ok no, we’re just posting things on facebook occasionally to INFORM people of things they probably have no idea about like what goes on in slaughterhouses, fur farms, circuses, labs, etc. And he’s like “well you don’t see my cryin at you for murdering those poor cabbages” and said there was some study done and plants can in fact, feel pain.
UGH like I don’t even know what to say to this idiot anymore! He is really getting on my last nerve. Just had to vent, sorry.
Sorry to hear your boyfriend’s best friend is such a jerk about this! I would seriously consider blocking him on Facebook. If he brings up plants feeling pain again just let him know that plants don’t have a central nervous system so they can’t feel pain- period!
Some people are just not ready to hear the truth because it forces them to confront issues they know are wrong. The people who are most defensive about animal issues tend to be the ones who are most conflicted about it so don’t stress too much about it. 🙂
