Last week there was another truck accident. One of those trucks that carry animals to their horrible fate: the slaughterhouse. This time its passengers were 1,000 broiler chickens. 46 could be saved, and 30 of them are sleeping in Gaia Sanctuary right now. They have plenty of space, but they’ve chosen to sleep like this, all together.
Some neighbors from nearby houses took advantage of the accident and several chickens ended up in their hands. They just killed them right there and took their bodies home. The truck drivers did the same. They laughed at the activists. “We’re hungry too”. One of the neighbors snatched one of the rescue chickens from their hands, just like that. It was a nightmare.
Imagine how different things would have been if this truck had carried dogs. Imagine the petitions, the protests, the outrage, the tears, the judgment. But who cares about a broiler chicken. Or a thousand.
Tell me again how vegans are the extremist ones.

Reading this hurt. To think someone would snatch a chicken from a animal activist and kill them is so horrible. I can’t imagine how awful that activist must have felt believing they were going to save that chickens life and right before their eyes a heartless stranger kills them. That poor chicken must have thought she was finally safe only to be put back into the hands of violence and have her life taken away.

Once you go vegan, you’ll start to realize that everyone you know suddenly has an uncle who owns a farm

And nobody on tumblr ever goes to McDonalds or anywhere else that abuses animals, because they buy all their shit from their ‘local farm’.

And they all know a friend who tried to go vegan and almost died.

To donate £5 to the charity supporting the male victims of domestic abuse, text the message: MKDV46 to 70070

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

Ok. Regardless of the fact that I don’t think 91,000 notes is tumblr “ignoring it,” there are a few issues with this. First of all, that “40%” statistic is from a men’s rights group in the UK called parity, which is outspokenly anti-feminist. Rather than acknowledge that when domestic abuse of men does happen, it’s more likely to be at the hands of another man, they weasel-words themselves out of citing any actual statistics but a self-report survey done as a companion to the BCR, the british crime survey, all the actual data of which STILL reports women as the primary sufferers of domestic abuse (ie 55-60+ percent.)
Now, we can sit here and mince words all day, and I can certainly agree that violence against men is prevalent and important, but it is absolutely unethical and ignorant to pretend that men aren’t also the primary perpetrators. Rather than creatively painting the primary victims of domestic abuse as the perpetrators, it may be advantageous to look at some neutral statistics, bearing in mind that statistics for BOTH are probably higher, since abuse reporting for EVERYONE is low.
There, at the National Domestic Violence Hotline website, is this statistic: “From 1994 to 2010, about 4 in 5 victims of intimate partner violence were female.” and they cite their sources.
The other reason this bugs me is that when you try to look this up, most of the sources are from Parity, meaning no, nobody’s “ignoring it-” they took those flawed, misrepresented statistics and ran with them, implying worldwide issues from a single survey in the UK/Wales.

Look. It’s important to protect EVERYONE from domestic abuse. But if you’re attempting to do that by misrepresenting the primary victims, I don’t want any part of it.

Yeah and also this video is total bullshit. It was edited to make it look like people cared about the woman and not the man. Notice the sunlight in the bit with the man being abused? Bright sunlight, but all the reactions are filmed when it’s overcast.

There are more inconsistencies if you watch the whole video, but it’s obvious this video was edited to fit an MRA agenda.

Hahahahaha this is ridiculously hilarious. They need to man the hell up and control their women.

Please tell me you are joking. And then please tell me you will never joke about domestic violence—which is legitimately deadly and affects one in four women—ever ever ever again. Holy shit.

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.
