I went to the East Coast premier a couple weeks ago, and I'm thrilled this is coming to Charleston! I can't wait to see it again. I just pre-registered.
About the age of the animals you kill. I don't know the proper term apparently, but they are very young and have only begun their lives. I would not call that "silly." http://www.joyfulvegan.com/blog/an-unnatur…
I'm curious what she thinks of those too, Emily.
Hippie - I don't wish harm to come to you or anyone else that participated in this event. Quite the opposite. I hope that one day your actions will be in alignment with your compassion and heart.
Wow, hippie... I'm glad you don't love me. Yikes! No one is forcing you to kill them, so maybe you should just stop. Then you would have all that former crying time free and you could use it to do something like educate people on where their food comes from. Win win. Think of all the good you could do.
You're killing baby/child animals at those ages. I understand why you're so defensive. It must take years of desensitizing yourself to be ok with what you do and it obviously still bothers you. You want so badly to believe you have to do it, but in reality you have a choice. It's not a good thing you are doing to those animals you supposedly love. I saw the video of them killing your bunny. He looked terrified being hung by his foot like that. You couldn't pay me enough to do that to any being that I care about.
I am familiar with Joel Salatin and without getting into a huge debate about it, I do not believe you can feed 9 billion people that way. There is evidence for veganic permaculture. But if you don't believe it, get some pigs and DON'T kill them. You don't have to eat animals to grow lettuce. That's an excuse.
Back to the actual discussion, which is this event. You use terms like "beautiful", "love", "humane", "compassion" to describe shooting an animal in the head (twice) and slicing the throats of rabbits that are hung upside down. You participate in events like the one about, where people who are not starving and have access to plenty of local veggies are choosing to kill and patting each other on the back for it. You do this purely for pleasure not necessity and you romanticize it.
If you don't like the food system AND you care about animals, you can solve both problems by being a homesteader who doesn't kill.
Or you can hang out at hipster kill parties and tell each other you are doing a good thing and are 'closer to your food'. I'm just telling you that it sounds ridiculous and doesn't actually make sense. Unless you like to kill.
