I think most people just lie a lot during interviews. Speaking as someone who spends a lot of time on AO Political, I can tell you that almost no convincing really occurs.

Yes, I get stumped. I don't have any phobia, but I'm a little weird on a deepdown level, and those questions tend to sort of short-circuit the part of me that acts normal? Like if you've ever seen...

Sorry-- I was trying to explain that this thread is about torture. Not about being killed.

So far, I found this series disappointing. The pictures are nice and simple, but they usually don't illustrate the concepts. And then there are some big words.

I think we should define "abuse" as torture.

Probably there's some empathy stuff going on here. I can imagine being a farm animal, and sitting around eating grass until I become a fat teenager,...

To some degree definitely, it's no fun without chance. But there's a huge emotional difference between hoping to top-draw a dragon and hoping to draw a 2nd land.

But does that result to more animals being killed? I got to assume it somehow translates to cheaper meat but not sure of the theory. Also kind of moot for me anyway.

That's a good point. You can buy "Certified Humane" dairy, but I don't know how humane that actually is. Also it's apparently difficult to find, unlike chicken.

One thing I think people forget:
When we choose not to eat meat, not only are these animals not killed, they're also never born. Eating meat is a way of giving them life, weirdly.
