    Alright, so I wanted to share a speech conducted by an animal rights activist Gary Yourofsky. You might have heard about it or another similar one as it is one of the most viewed speeches around the world.

    I gotta say, as someone who thought being vegan is kinda weird, unhealthy, overall bad and even made fun of my vegan friends, watching this guy's speech completley changed how I view veganism and it opened my eyes to the world around me.

    Now, I know it's not short, but I honestly believe that after watching it, you will not regret it. I didn't. I mean, what do you got to lose?

    Now go get the popcorn and enjoy!



    For anyone who actually watches it, I'm looking forward for any replies or immediate reactions you have.

    Hello Guy

    I became a vegetarian when I was your age. I was also "philosophically vegan" in the sense that I regarded the unnecessary consumption of any animal products to be immoral, but completely abstaining from them was just not a sacrifice I was willing to make, regardless of morality.

    I used to agree with the points made at the start; emotions aside, they are factually correct, though they are far from the whole picture.

    However, I have since stopped being vegetarian. I am not against vegetarianism and other animal welfare concerns per se, but I am against the sort of passion this man puts into it and the way he lowers the worth of human beings to that of animals (or very close to).

    I believe that Man is far above the animals in worth. I believe a degree of emotional fortitude is necessary for a functioning society. When all the men in your society are too wimpy to cut the head off a chicken, there are bad times ahead.

    Towards the end he just starts trying to make people associate eggs with faeces, I don't appreciate that kind of tactic so I stopped the video there. It's the same kind of mental programming one undergoes when watching pornography, it's not intellectual, it's forceful mental conditioning.

  3. i dont like this guy, he uses argument like go outside and catch animal with bare hands, of course we cant cath rabbit, but evolution give us brains a because of brain we can created traps and weapons, so this argument is incredible invalid in my eyes. Dont get me wrong im against these slautherhouses and unetical practics too but not against meat.(and sorry for english must be horrible i wrote this without google.)

    this is the best speech that I have ever heard

    “We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.” ― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, We Should All Be Feminists
     
  5. No ones going to take you seriously if you can’t even stay on topic in a thread.
