Okay, I’m really sorry if there are any grammar/spelling errors or profanities in here, but I’m hella heated right now. I was talking to my sister (who is 14) about pigs & how cute they are, when she asked what kindd of pig was used to make bacon. So I looked it up and it didn’t say a specific type, but I was looking at all the other articles that were on there, and I saw one about how genetic research could someday lead to better bacon (which already involves SEVERAL things that p*ss me off) and I was like “aww that’s so sad” because well, it is, and she was like “what is?” and I started to tell her about it and before I had barely gotten started she cut me off because she ‘didn’t want to know’
THEN, when I asked her WHY she didn’t want to know, she said it was because it makes her sad and she won’t be vegetarian anyways, so then she would just be sad. ***** PLEASE. If she is gonna be that selfish she deserves to be sad. And THEN, when I tried to talk to her about that, she got all mad at ME and told me to stop trying to convince her to be vegetarian because it’s useless and that even if she did, she wouldn’t be saving any animals anyways.Why can people not understand that staying ignorant to the problem is CONTRIBUTING to the problem????????? Ugh, this seriously irritates me. Trying not to go all holier-than-thou on her, but it’s hard not to when she’s perfectly happy staying ingorant and killing all these innocent animals.
She doesn’t even have the common intelligence to WANT to know. Like if ignorance is bliss, what is stupidity? She ought to be one of the happiest people on earth, forreal.
People in this generation are pretty ignorant if I may say so myself. It’s just how their mindset is, you can keep trying but maybe in time when she’s more mature she’ll understand better. I know a bit about people like her myself, because my grade is full of ’em.
Feed her vegan bacon without telling her its vegan.
If she likes it, then inform her its vegan and ask her -why- she wont even consider going vegetarian when she obviously doesn’t have to give up her favorite foods.
I’ve seen that how it’s made you’re talking about, it’s absolutely heartbreaking. Those poor babies /: The thing is though, she as well as the rest of my family are a bunch of carnies, so she won’t even watch the videos. She just doesn’t think it would make a difference, and she’s actually been talking about going hunting with my dad again, and it kills me because she hasn’t done that since she was small.It feels like she’s regressing, and I’m starting to lose hope in her, I feel like I’m trying to resucitate a zombie, you know? My efforts are all in vain. I think I should just move on and try to do what I can with others, since she seems to be a lost cause. But there was nothing anyone did to trigger it for you, it just sort of happened?
