doochecanoe said: I can understand why you'd be vegetarian, but I can't understand veganism ((I'm not trying to be a douche)) I mean milk and eggs ((for example))?? aren't they produced by the animal naturally anyway?? I mean why stop using it when it's perfectly natural for the animal to produce it? surely there's no harm in milking a cow or collecting an egg from a chicken? ((I'm just curious that's all as I'm still not 100% sure what being 'vegan' is))
Honey bun, they’re not natural after factory farms get involved which is 99% of all farms.
Moo’s are artificially inseminated to make baby cows and produce milk. Just like humans, moos don’t typically produce milk unless pregnant. That milk is suppose to feed their baby cows in order to make them into huge adult cows. We are grown adults drinking breast milk from another mammal. They’re also injected full of growth hormones and antibiotics, of which we ingest.
That^ doesn’t look much natural to me and this is a tame picture compare to some of the ones you’ll come across on the internet.
Chickens, my beloved chickens. They’re abused, stuck in battery cages, beaks cut off, genetically engineered to produce tons of meat, so much that some can’t stand under the weight.
The egg industry is HORRIBLE. Male baby chicks are a bi-product. They separated males and females. The females go into horrible living conditions, and the males are stomped on, suffocated, and ground up alive because they’re useless.
You don’t think of these things at first, but when you start to dig, you wake up to how wrong it is.
