In Reference to: Sex Assaults Make Animals of Humans
Farmed animals (and it is important to recognise that this is not limited to 'factory farmed' animals) endure abuse, sexual abuse and pain regularly. In fact, it is seen as standard practice and within the 'code' to inflict these horrific crimes on them.
On top of this they are robbed of any chance to live a 'normal' life.
In every step of animal agriculture animals suffer. There is no way to 'kindly' or 'humanely' exploit animals.
People need to recognise that when they eat animal products this is what they are paying for. Stepping out of this cycle of abuse and removing animal products from your lifestyle is easy and it's greatly rewarding to know that you aren't contributing to animal suffering.
