Anonymous said: How do you feel about human intervention in the preservation of certain species? For example, Pandas. Is there a need or an intrinsic good to maintain these species or do people just do it because "Panda r so kewt"

soycrates:

I do think the preservation of animals who no longer interact with the environment outside of our civilization is done out of selfishness. The primary reason for the preservation of a species is because that species plays some role in the natural environment. Even then, we have to ask whether or not their role in the environment is necessary for a healthier biological culture. People talk about balancing the environment as if there’s some perfect medium to be achieved, but perfect mediums aren’t actually sustained very long in the non-human animal world. Populations go through constant fluctuation in strength and numbers. Preserving or breeding a species to grow their population is just the opposite side of the exact same scale of people who hunt animals to control their population. We give ourselves the authority to say how many or how few can exist within a species.

We preserve certain species because we like to look at them, touch them, study them, call them ours. The preservation of species is like the maintenance of a house plant or a front lawn. We let it grow, but we also groom it to our liking. And if it grows more than we like, inevitably we mow it or trim it down for doing only what comes biologically to it.

Individual animals do not suffer if their species all dies out. We are not warranted in categorizing extinction as cruel. However, this becomes a tricky situation when we’re the ones responsible for the extinction. Still, breeding new animals into a species does not make up for the animals we have made suffer and die, any more than a human having a baby makes up for our wars or murders.

The fact eating meat is literally killing the planet, so much so that we may only have 50 years left on earth, and most people don’t give a shit/ refuse to listen is ridiculous. I watched ‘Cowspiracy’ today and I couldn’t believe it, some of the stats are shocking, what I found…

I hope that this image travels the world …“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.

It’s always surprising to me how many young women think they have to be perfect. I rarely meet a young man who doesn’t think he already is.

Can we just talk about this for a second?
A restaurant chain called Hardee’s recently released a string of advertisements that sexualize chicken breasts.Let me repeat myself:They’re advertising their food by sexualizing the breasts of chickens.
This ad features a chicken with censored breasts, suggesting that this body part is somehow lewd, indecent or arousing and needs to be covered up. And in this one, countless roosters run to Hardee’s in hopes of catching a glimpse of some hot, sexy, cooked (meaning, dead) chicken breasts. It’s like sexism, bestiality and necrophilia all wrapped into one.
But before you go thinking this is an isolated incident, just check out these ads for other products that sexualize human and nonhuman bodies:




And these are only a few examples.
You know….  There are so many anti-vegan feminists who trash vegans because PETA objectifies and sexualizes women in their campaigns. They cry, “I’d never go vegan because the animal rights movement is so sexist!!!”
Oh yeah? Well why haven’t these thoroughly sexist ad campaigns made you stop eating meat? I know why. Because you only boycott sexist companies when it’s convenient for you.
So either stop pretending PETA’s sexism is the reason you still eat meat, or go vegan.

I do not understand. We are humans too providing a service, that not only takes time but energy and skill.  

I think it’s because people assume that a big chunk is taken out of the formers wages- if they are working in salons and businesses there’s usually a manager. And more overhead. Someone else is cutting into that money.
