Animal Rights



I found this sad picture in a magazine the other day and I am a huge animal rights activist. I think that trophy hunting is barbaric and shows a very primitive and uneducated side in the people that take part in it. I don't care how much money you paid to go on some trip to shoot yourself a wolf, tiger, zebra etc - that doesn't make it RIGHT. I would never in my life have an animal head on my wall, a zebra rug on my floor or wear a fur coat.
The animals are killed with the sole purpose of being showcased as a trophy. They are not killed for the consumption of their meat. I am not going to be a hypocrite (because I personally can't stand hypocrites) and say that I never eat meat or wear clothing made from the skin of an animal. I do eat meat once in a while, I am a flexitarian. And I do have some clothing made of leather, for example leather pants. I am pretty sure the leather my pants are made of came from a cow that got slaughtered for it's meat, so the skin was a byproduct. I would never wear an animal that was slaughtered solely for the reason to become some pants or a coat. Like mink or fox.
I get really surprised when I see women hunting for trophies, they must have some extra testosterone or are trying hard to show off to the boys that they too can be bad ass - that is how I see it. Men that do it, to me, want to show off their power and often wealth. Power trip. To me it is tacky and like I already said.......barbaric and uneducated.
I'd much rather preserve the tigers and other endangered species in the world than let men get an ego boost.
It is one thing if you kill an animal for it's meat and then use it's skin and fur, I can't really argue against that. But to shoot a tiger ONLY to display the head and fur in your living room..........explain the reasoning behind that for me please. And make a valid argument for it, not only, "Because I can." There are plenty of endangered animals out there getting slaughtered on a daily basis. It is so wrong!
Some dumb men think that eating a rhino horn, a tiger penis or some shark fin soup etc work as some form of miraculous aphrodisiac and will get them a bigger and harder erection. Please do not use innocent animals for your own personal limp dick problems. Hugh Hefner is 86 and he pops a Viagra. You can do it too, leave the animals alone.
And yes, it would probably be kinder of me if I raised my own chickens and cows to kill and eat. But I know myself. I would fall in love with them and not be able to kill them. How could I possibly? I rarely eat meat. There have been times when I went for years without a bite of any kind of meat and that includes fish. I realize that people do not want to give up eating meat and fish. But I do think it is possible to eat less of it and be just as healthy if not even healthier from it. And to slaughter and animal to display as a trophy or because you have a penis dysfunction? That is plain WRONG - that is the only was to look at that issue.
I also think it is really tacky of Beyonce to keep stepping out in furs and clothing made from exotic animals. It only shows that she is a very selfish person that ONLY cares to show off her wealth and how "trendy" she is. To me she is tacky. Money, as we all know it.......DOES NOT BUY YOU CLASS.

Juliana on :

You never cease to crack me up. I love the last two entries. Toilet paper and tigers...
If I were single and dating, and went to some guy's house after a date and saw a tiger rug on the floor- I too would think there is something seriously wrong with this person and call a cab.

I know people eat lots of strange meat I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. However- I've never gotten a warm, fuzzy feeling when I've walked into a room and been confronted with a deer or moose head, who's sad, glassy eyes are staring at me in their decapitated state mounted on a wall.

The whole "Me Tarzan--You Jane" mentality doesn't appeal to me. There are other ways of getting on one's own groove.
Killing for sport, I think has serious karmic repercussions- as does anything else in life. That's why I don't do "ill" to others.
What comes around goes around. It always comes back to
either bless or curse one's ass.

There is indiscretion and malice to both people and animals still unfortunately in this world. I'm hoping, that as a species we'll evolve at a faster rate than what we are currently experiencing.

Kumqwats that kill in a senseless manner will probably, in their next lifetime, get savagely hunted down with a bullet to THEIR head.
How would that feel? Not as good as a bowl of shark fin soup.
And it certainly ISN'T just men, women too, you're right.
To that, I'd say "hey girl... just be fine with a great life, a rewarding career, the ability to suck good di$k and a winning personality".

Anyhoo, good for you Tati, for making valid points and standing up for the rights of humans and animals.
Have a great day.
I gotta say though, I'm still gonna use good ol' fashioned TP. lol
lotsa love to you :-)

I totally agree!
Nice long comment Jules!
