    This was for the activities fair at my college, so we were trying to recruit people for the club here. We gave out fruit, stickers, t shirts, backpacks...all for free. Everyone was like "wow, you guys have the best table at the fair". This was my intent, because we want the club to get big and well-known, so we can make a better impact on campus.
    And, yeah I do have a lot of different pamphlets and posters. About half my belongings in my dorm are animal rights gear.
    This is some of the stuff my club is doing currently:

    -supplies drive for animals rescued from Katrina disaster area (blankets, petfood, etc.)
    -planning a KFC demo (to do outside a local KFC)
    -planning a really cool campaign called Pledge-2-B-Veg. We're going to challenge other students on campus to try being vegetarian for a certain amount of time (probably 2 weeks), just to let them see that it is not a difficult change to make. People who are already vegetarian, we will encourage to try vegan. At the end, there will be a big party to reward everyone who particpated, and hopefully we can convince them to stick to it by showing some short films, etc...
    - We're also doing stuff for the local shelter. It's in a really bad and rundown area, and most of the dogs are rescued pitbulls from pitbull fighting that goes on in the adjacent city. So, we're going to volunteer and do supply drives for them throughout the year.



    All this work is so tiring, because I pretty much run the club. But it's worth it.

    Supporting farm factories IS animal abuse.


    And that's not how you spell "tasty".

    Why can't I even just post a photo of an AR tabling, without one of you nasty little meat eaters butting in to "defend" yourself; you guys are relentless.

    She's a PeTA member. They feel as though they are better then everyone else. That they are allowed to insult people, make horrible comparisons, and rant and rave without any dissent. They believe that all naysayers should be silenced.

    But then again, these are people who actually admire Ingrid Newkirk. Nuff said.

    No, I don't get mad because I'm "extreme"; I get mad because the people on this forum are so obnoxious.

    Ok, so maybe you don't have to be nice to me. Fine with that. But could you stop torturing animals and raping the earth?

    I don't do it for me. I do it for the animals. You guys just don't "get" it.

    I dont consider eating meat 'raping the earth' after all its part of life. Plants are eaten by herbivores and then you you up through various layers of carnivors (with some mammals being omnivores). Eventually the animals die releasing nutrients back to the soil and the whole cycle starts again. Humans have just mechanised the process somewhat. I agree there should be boundaries the most obvious I suppose is battery hens I never been one of the organic crowd, but Im sure free range eggs taste better.

    So every animal that eats meat is a "nasty meat eater" as well? I am trying to understand your logic, if you have any.

    the problem is that we just don't agree in any way shape or form that eating animals is torturing and raping the earth. we don't expect you to be silent, so you cant expect us to be silent, either. it's not like we're cussing you out and calling you names. i'm sure some do, but they're just assholes, and assholes abound in every opinion, don't you think?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to blow up at anybody. But it's like... I can't even post some photos of an event I did at school without having to defend the movement. Everytime I make any kind of post that mentions animal rights, somebody has to say something negative about it. EVERY time.

    Maybe if you guys were in the position where you are standing up for something ethically important and most people around you hate you for it, and you find yourself having to defend it OVER AND OVER again. Being superconservative and taking the path of least resistance is well...easy. And you have the right to be like that, but think about it: do you really want to?

    The topic of the post was "animal rights stuff". I just wanted to show other animal righters some cool stuff I made and that's it. If someone doesn't care for animal rights, why even click on it? Because you feel guilty that you partake in animal abuse and want to make sure that my post is discredited?


    And no, I do not hate other animals who eat meat. The way humans get their meat is much different. Other animals do not keep their prey caged its whole life, inject it with hormones, scald it alive, hang it by its feet on a conveyer line, keep it from ever seeing sunlight or ever getting a chance to do its natural animal behavior like dustbathing or caring for its young, lock it in a box with just its head sticking out so it cannot move so that its muscles are "tender", shove them shoulder to shoulder on transport trains and trucks standing in their own filth, stomp unwanted babies to death before chucking them in the dumpster, keep four to five of them in a cage that is less wide than a single one's wingspan, or use use a majority of the nation's water (10, 000 gallons H20 per pound of beef), etc......

    No, other animals don't do that. Just humans.

    ophelia, how do you feel about people who strictly hunt for their meat? i'll bet you don't like that either. i'm just as much against factory farming as yourself, but i'm definitely among those that think humans have no right to eat meat.

    and we ARE standing up for something we believe. and we DO catch flack for it, just like you do. especially if we're hunters.

    and gilligan, you can actually find lots of ranches and farms that graze their cows on scrub, and slaughter them on request after corn feeding them about a week, if you wish. we live out in the boonies, so we have a much easier time of finding naturally raised animals to eat. what a lot of people do is get together a group of people willingto split the costs of an animal and share the meat, so that you don't actually have an ENTIRE cow in your freezer. it works GREAT, and so good for you. and mcuh better for the environment.
