Animal rights is distinguishable from animal welfare. In general, the term “animal rights” is the belief that humans do not have a right to use animals for our own purposes. “Animal welfare” is the belief that humans do have a right to use animals as long as the animals are treated humanely.
Equal rights for all sentient beings.
We interrupt your usual schedule to bring you a very small pig descending a set of stairs.
Don’t BUY an animal, ever. Adopt!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many narrow minded people in my entire life.
Please don’t misunderstand me. I love humans. I think they are cute and adorable and stuff, but nature just isn’t that way. I didn’t create the circle of life. I’m just living in it. You got a problem with it? Take it up with nature.
You’ve decided it’s not for you. Fine. Great. Whatever. But that’s not your decision to make for somebody else.
I’m sorry I can’t be like you. I’m not one of these all-or-nothing extremists like you are. I believe everything is fine in moderation. Maybe you can think about that and explain it to your dogmatic little cult who hates people having freedom and choice to do what they want to do with their lives.
Geez….when the hell did people become so fascinated with what you eat? It’s just food or God’s sake. Where is all this drama coming from?
Look…..every meat-eater that eats at McDonalds knows that they are just like any other animal and shouldn’t have to abide by any other kind of ethical standard. Don’t you think it would be monumentally hypocritical and disingenuous to change your philosophy when the human is food.
Remember we’re all just animals and nobody should expect us to behave differently than a lion would. No difference. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Bupkis.
I knew you’d see it my way. So, let’s start living in peace by respecting other people’s beliefs. That’s the key. Without that, we’ll never see peace on earth.
Don’t know why people are on your case for cannibalism, it’s your choice, you’re not hurting anyone. People need to stop getting on other people for their personal choices. Live and let live.
Pesticides are having a widespread effect on the world’s animals, and bees may only be the first victim. The toxins are also wiping out birds — at an average rate of 4% each year.

If you think your taste buds are so incredibly important that their pleasure outweighs the entire life and suffering of an innocent being I don’t even know how you can get offended when people question your morals.
Get the fuck out of here with that nonsense… I’m so tired of hearing it.
