I am sorry, but I'd not support you 100%. Why? Because you just refer to animal cruelty, but what about other living things? Humans hurt each other, humans destroy environment, and there is plently of other things humans do bad. Also, if you are not vegan/vegetarian then that especially is hypocritism to say "stop animal cruelty!" and then a few minutes after eat an animal. Not saying your art is bad or the message itself, just that it's not 100% full. Like my opinion or not - that's on your side to decide ^^"
Well, that's not what I meant. By "animal cruelty", I meant hurting animals for pleasure/fun, just because they're weak/helpless. I'm not a vegan, but look at it this way, I'm Catholic, and I believe that God gave us animals both to eat, or to keep as pets. Not to abuse. Not to kill for fun.
Abuse doesn't mean killing a chicken, for food. Abuse is when you vent your anger on an animal, or hurt it, for no good reason.
The message in this pic, is to support all the animals who have been tortured or thrown rocks at.
But I agree with you a little, maybe my next pic will be "Stop Bullying."
I understand your point, but at same time for me it's being hypocrite to save animals just to kill and eat another ones... also, yepp, "stop bullying" would be ALOT better topic than "Stop animal cruelty", just my opinion ^^"
In my point of view, it's two different things. This is the worst example ever, but just pretend there was an apocalypse. If one of their family members were infected and were about to die, a person will have to kill them, so they get to die as a human and not an un-dead thing.
Killing animals is...well...ONLY for one or two good reasons. Killing animals for food is one of these reasons. The other "reasons" can go die in a hole in the ice in Antartica.
But Stop Bullying doesn't clarify which kind of bullying I'm addressing.
it doesn't have to clarify - EVERY kind of bullying is bad, you can't deny that. Also, if you kill them for food, and call it a "good reason", why don't kill your friends and eat them and say "I did it for good reasons" - and don't just start with "but animals don't have souls" and talks like that, if humans have souls, animals do, too. In my eyes it doesn't matter if you kill for food, for pleasure or any other reasons - a kill is a kill, in both situations - it will die.
Everyone was taught so, and it's not a crime (according to law) - but it can be crime to some people, morally. But as a cheer-up, I also am aware that plants also have feelings, so if you don't eat animals, you eat plants, which is also a kill - only difference is animals also eat plants, which means that if you eat animal, you also should add to it plants it ate as well, so all-in-all eating just plants is less of a harm... but well, some people can't just live on plants, both from health aspect, traditional aspect and economical aspect - like me. I used to be vegetarian, then turned vegan, but suddenly due to my stressy life I got a sickness, which well, put me on diet, and if I didn't eat meat I'd lack nutrition I'd not be able to replace because some stuff which is in plants to replace meat - I can't eat anymore due to my sickness... so yeh, I am kind of forced to eat meat because of my health, but I'd do everything I could if they had a cure for my sickness so I could be vegan again
You shouldn't be a vegan. Humans are made to eat BOTH animal meat AND plants. All the same, I feel like wasting food and gluttony are terrible, because its a waste of an animal's life. I feel we should only eat what's enough, nothing less, nothing more.
Eating meat and plants are good for health. My thoughts are that you SHOULD eat meat, but only eat enough. Eating plants only will get you nowhere.
And that animal-eating-plants thing is somewhat not true. If a murderer kills a murderer, does that make justice?
