A lot of people today have extremely limited understanding of how anything rural works, thinking only of animals in the abstract. Hence people who don’t understand that cows can continue to give milk way longer than their calves need it, or that you don’t have to kill sheep to get their wool, or who think that a good way to save the bees is for everyone to stop eating honey. Like, if people don’t want to eat meat because they don’t want animals killed, and want to avoid eggs because of the cruelty prevalent in that industry, or milk because yeah, there are a fair number of issues with the dairy industry too… I will support that 100%. But then there are people so woefully misinformed I can’t take them seriously at all. its baffling- if you assume wool requires a sheep to be killed, thus each sheep in its lifetime will only provide one ‘crop’ of wool, then how freaking expensive would you then assume yarn to be? youd assume mutton would then be exceedingly common in the meat market as wellthey make a logic tangent, and obviously abandon it two seconds after it passes where they want to go because thinking too hard will reveal that to be stupid I have discovered that usually, the most militant and unpleasant vegans absolutely have no fucking idea how farming works. Ecological, sustainable farming - not massive, planet-damaging, animal-torturing industrial farming. If you don’t know that sheep have to be sheared before summer or they can literally die of heat, I am not going to listen to you. If you don’t realise that it only makes sense to use leather from animals if you kill them to eat them and that your vegan ass buying cheap plastic shoes three times a year is doing more damage to the environment than me buying leather shoes every five years, I’m not going to listen to you. If you refuse to consider that cows’ udders get painful if they don’t have a calf and aren’t milked, I won’t listen to you. And if you don’t have the basic biology knowledge required to realise that properly, sustainably raised farm animals have their place in the biosystem and that it would not, in fact, be a good thing to stop raising them, I am not going to listen to you.  I was told by a vegan I am otherwise good friends with that “all farmers lie about everything to do with farming” and I just ???? do you have any idea how exhausting it is to fucking farm no one has the ENERGY to lie about stuff like “we need commercial bees as pass pollinators for fruit farms so you might as well eat honey tbh since they’re making an excess anyway” by all means campaign for safer and better slaughterhouses (which btw is a current hot-button issue in the uk and is something one of my clients is backing and pursuing legally) and better animal welfare and make a point of pushing high-welfare products over shitty ones but demanding that everyone stops buying wool coats on the basis of a lie is stupid because the alternative is artificial fibres which are polluting the fucking oceans and killing off all the fish This. We need to do better on animal welfare, as on so many things. But if you’re coming from a standpoint of ‘all farmers are evil soulless murderers’, then… I don’t really know how we’re going to have a conversation, so I’m going to politely back away. : THIS IS A REAL FRESHLY SHEARED LAMB.

A lot of people today have extremely limited understanding of how anything rural works, thinking only of animals in the abstract. Hence people who don’t understand that cows can continue to give milk way longer than their calves need it, or that you don’t have to kill sheep to get their wool, or who think that a good way to save the bees is for everyone to stop eating honey. Like, if people don’t want to eat meat because they don’t want animals killed, and want to avoid eggs because of the cruelty prevalent in that industry, or milk because yeah, there are a fair number of issues with the dairy industry too… I will support that 100%. But then there are people so woefully misinformed I can’t take them seriously at all. its baffling- if you assume wool requires a sheep to be killed, thus each sheep in its lifetime will only provide one ‘crop’ of wool, then how freaking expensive would you then assume yarn to be? youd assume mutton would then be exceedingly common in the meat market as wellthey make a logic tangent, and obviously abandon it two seconds after it passes where they want to go because thinking too hard will reveal that to be stupid Wait, it wasnt common knowledge that you dont harm sheep when you shave them?

thank you for this! The bar is now so low that liberals will flock to monstrosities and shower them with adulation simply because they said something about Trump.  This form of political and historical amnesia serves no one but the powerful. We need to have higher fucking standards than this. : Shannon Carey @scmaestra This moral rehabilitation of GWW Bush is baffling.

Imagine that you’re living in a modest sized home in the middle of an extremely high-end neighborhood. Your house is a mere 1,200 square feet which is comfortably liveable and you make full use of every square foot. ✧ Your neighbors, on the other hand, all have 3,000 square foot homes at the minimum. They drive better cars than you, they have kids in private schools, and they have bigger TVs than you. They’re better looking than you, too. You hate them. ✧ Don’t you feel like a piece of crap? Doesn’t your inability to live your life as big as these people really get you down? Don’t you just want MORE? If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions then this is for you. ✧ Recently, I received an email from a reader who feels like she’s not getting enough out of life, while people around her are balling out of control. This seemingly unfortunate reader has been plagued with a mind rotting disease that psychologists have deemed the “mere-exposure effect”. ✧ Here’s what she had to say: “I’m just baffled of how others make it. We have an income of $180K a year. We have a friend who is a podiatrist and lives in a $600K house, 2 kids in private schools ($12k-yr-child) and drives 2 Mercedes SUVs. I’m not trying to sound like we’re “keeping up with Joneses” but I just really want to know how they are able to manage it as I too want to learn and have their lifestyle. I sometimes think that I’m missing a “secret” to financial success when I see my friends around me have such a lavish lifestyle.” ✧ What do you think?
