    At lunch today I was discussing animal rights will a few of my (very amazing) non veg friends. I was explaining what gelatin is and one of my friends said “I just don’t think about it and eat it anyway.”

    I love her to death but that’s exactly the problem. People don’t think. They just pretend that if they don’t think about it, its not true and therefore makes it ok.
    I had that attitude for many many years. I guess one day I couldn’t push those thoughts aside anymore.

    I don’t know. That just really shocked me. I love her but its people like her that are the problem. They chose to look the other way instead of do something.

    I’m proud to say that I refuse to look the other way.

    I totally agree. That’s the root cause of every single one of society’s problems, not just animal rights. People do what they want, pretending that what they do has absolutely no impact on the world around them. We try to shield ourselves from the hurt WE cause, if that makes sense… We live in a self-centered world. We need more people like you to stand up and say, “No. I choose to see. I choose to see what’s really happening. I choose to do something about it.” Good for you, girl!

    Not thinking? This is why we have so many problems!

    We watched a video once in class when we watched how some slaughterhouses selective breed their cattle with ‘double muscle.’ People were disgusted!

    Honestly, that could be like someone they bathe with toilet water because they don’t think about what it is or where it comes from.

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
