what im saying is that bisexuals, pansexual, and asexuals should all join together so we can be in the fictitious trifecta. enough people will say we’re not real and we’ll all converge together in a massive, fierce mass only spoken of in myth.  dont come near us or you too will cease to exist

can we include aromantics?

Karen Davis, president of United Poultry Concerns, visited Happy Hen Organic Fertile Brown Eggs, a “free-range” egg farm in Pennsylvania. According to flyers for Happy Hen eggs, the hens run free “in a natural setting” and are “humanely housed in healthy, open-sided housing, for daily sunning - something Happy Hens really enjoy.” Davis’s observations stood in stark contrast to the farm’s claims. “Inside, the birds were wall to wall. They were severely debeaked and their feathers were in bad condition - straggly, drab, and worn off.” More than 7,000 birds were housed in each Happy Hen barn, and individual hens had no more than 1_ square feet of space, not room enough even to spread their wings. Happy Hens were also occasionally force-molted (denied food for several days to shock the hens into losing their feathers and prematurely starting a new laying cycle).

Q
But there are humane ways to treat animals even if they're used for food. Organic pastures and things.

  • A calf is still ripped away from her mother after birth so that humans can consume the milk made for the calf.
  • The calf is often sent to a veal crate, or raised for meat or dairy.
  • Mother calves are live their lives in a constant cycle of impregnation. In about 5 years (average), they are considered spent, and are sent to be slaughtered. The average lifespan of a cow is 25 years.
  • Cows are artificially inseminated by someone inserting their arm up her rectum to position the uterus, and then putting an instrument in her vagina to be impregnated.
  • Male chicks are considered useless for laying eggs and are killed after hatching.
  • In 2 years (average), hens are considered spent and are killed. Their average lifespan would have been 10 years.
  • Unprofitable infants are killed early in their lives. This includes ‘broiler’ chicks, turkey poults, and duckings. This also includes the runts of pig litters.

Every single one of these animals are killed so someone can consume their bodies/bodily secretions. You can feed them the most organic foods and give them the biggest free-range pastures, but at the end of the day they are being sent to slaughter and their lives are cut short. These animals are seen as nothing but profits and commodities. There’s no way to humanely kill a sentient being.


Q
I know chickens eat their own eggs, but that isn't that usually if they are kept in poor conditions? What would you say to someone who wanted a pet chicken but would give up veganism just to consume their eggs as they would see it as wasteful? What should they do with the eggs instead?

thinking that something like an unfertilized hens egg or the whole of her dead body, if not used by humans, automatically and irrevocably goes to waste is a deeply anthropocentric and therefore problematic train of thought.

get this: the universe does not revolve around you. the animal kingdom does not exist to provide nourishment to humans.

chickens, like everyone else, exist for their own reasons. they are badass scavengers and eating their own eggs is part of their nature, the practice of doing so serves a purpose of replenishing lost nutrients and, surprise, doesn’t have anything to do with you.

their eggs are none of your business, so don’t worry about them. what makes you think you are in any way entitled to the product of their bodies labor anyway?

what would you think of me if i were to “abandon” your rightful claim to autonomy, freedom, your claim to exist on your own merit and pursue happiness just so i can abuse you as my, personal walking food dispenser?

I’d like to follow more vegans and bisexuals. If you’re either of those things, reblog this and I’ll check out your blog.
