I have to but my sense into this.
Its a proven fact, ( thanks to recent studies in plants) that plants have a brain wave of sorts, that quicken when they are being hurt ( ya discovery) and that brockley screams using these waves while being cut. They have also proven plants can sense things, and even produce fear. ( it was a wonderful program on discovery I enjoyed it quite a bit)
I respect Vegy only eaters. But the ones I can't stand are the ones who place moral Values on it.
Back back in the day, they didn't even know what Vegan was. You either eat meat, or you didn't like it. Not because it has a furry face, or face in general.
All I am saying is, if you base standards on its cruel to eat animals, or it has a face we shouldn't eat it. Then they should tell the tigers lions and bears they have to go vegy too. That and the ones that say but they have feelings its not right, how does the poor carrot feel? Can you ask me that?
In all fairity if your going to use those reasonings as to why you don't eat meat. Then you shouldn't eat plant matter either. You should starve, if you wish to only eat things that do not have feelings.
I say does a plant not bleed? Does it not grow? Does it not eat? Does it not Drink as our selves and other creatures? does it not die if it doesn't get those things?
Then it would have feelings as does every other living thing. Every living thing, has to have touch, like the plant that if you touch it it closes its leaves. Or the walking tree ( its endangered and lives in australia look it up).
All I am asking, if for people to instead of throwing moral issues that neither moral nor reasonable in there eating, and just say, I don't like eating it. Or I can't stomach it.
Its less offencive to those who do eat meat, less insensitive when it comes to the poor plant.
( don't take this the wrong way. I just felt plants should be voiced in this thread lol)
