You'll never look at the meat the same way ;)
I'm gonna have to take a look at these! I don't know that they'll dissuade me from steaks and burgers, but it's good to be informed.
Ugh, I know this sounds super lame @yernaya but I really like meat a lot. Plus my family eats a lot of it, so I’m sort’ve obligated. I might test it out for a week or so. See if I can change my habits!
Thank you so much for this card! I really need to check out all of these films...especially the Vegetate one! I would love to try vegan for a while!
Awesome card! Definitely checking some of these out. Thanks for the tips!
@yernaya I've never seen any of these, but I'd be really interested in watching all of them. The idea of speciesism is kind of fascinating to me; I was talking to my friend, who's a lab researcher, and that's kind of how he justified doing experiments on rats and mice. It doesn't make much sense to me, honestly. Life is life! And even though we don't value their mousey little lives as much as we should, I'm sure they matter very much to them.
