Berry College wide receiver, Mason Kinsey, signs with Tennessee Titans
DEAR EDITOR: It has been startling to see how the coronavirus pandemic has turned many people to racial stereotyping. Now more than ever, I hear many people making horrible claims about an entire country and culture. A majority of these repulsive generalizations come from the Chinese custom of eating domestic animals. To us Westerners, this sounds like everything except a yummy delicacy, but what makes it more wrong to eat a dog or cat? The simple fact that we regularly interact with dogs and cats seems to excuse them from becoming a meal. We know about their silly behaviors, feel guilty when we accidentally step on their tails, and sometimes even treat them better than other humans! What puzzles me is that cows, chickens, and pigs don’t receive that same kindness. How are they any different? All of these animals are sentient beings with a will to live, just like us. Our culture has influenced us to think that cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals are expendable food products instead of living things. Meanwhile, dogs and cats are companion animals that are considered part of the family. This opposing standard for how we treat these animals is called speciesism. One animal is held in higher regard and therefore protected from slaughter, while another is just food. How can we pretend that this hypocrisy is acceptable? The most mind-boggling aspect of this issue is the blissful ignorance that meat consumers live in. “Beef” replaces “cow” so that we disassociate the animal’s suffering from our juicy burger. We ignore the fact that the cow that has been prepared for our consumption has lived an all but satisfying life. Only hours after birth they are separated from their mother. Once a girl becomes fertile, they are forcibly impregnated by a human using a syringe, and the cycle begins again. A boy is brought to a veal farm and killed within 16-18 weeks. If dogs receive any mercy from us, that mercy should also be extended to all other animals. We must turn away from speciesism and start to realize the injustice that we are funding. The only way to end this is to stop consuming animal products. Learn more about taking meat out of your diet at eatingveg.org
