    Default my first thread: join me in abstaining from pork?

    i dunno, guys. i've always kept my opinions to myself, for the most part, but in posting a pic today, i was alerted (reminded?) of how much i like pigs, how much i detest commercial processing, and how lazy i can be when it comes to eating conscientiously.

    i'm not advocating vegetarianism, although think it's a pretty good idea. i'm not advocating gun control--we are a hunting family. i have simply decided i cannot abide eating pigs anymore. ironically, i raised a hog in ffa years ago in high school. although i loved her and cared for her for many months, i was not very invested in her life, and wasn't too sad to see her sold, although i knew what it meant, of course. i have, for years, annually bought a 'whole hog' from my local butcher up the road, although i cancelled my order a couple years ago when i drove by on 'processing day' and saw all the pink (seriously--pink) pigs awaiting their execution.

    i love pork. it is my favorite meat. when i got on the mad cow bandwagon years ago, i found my culinary meat salvation in pork. peppered bacon, jimmy dean sausage, eckrich dinner sausage, bratz, dogs, pork roast, ham, pork chops, hot pork rinds, and, yes, even pickled pigs feet when i was a kid (yuck, daddy!) you name it, i eat/ate it.

    so. i am posting this video and perhaps a pic or song or something to raise awareness of the plight of the piggies. won't you join me in leaving the pork off your plate?

    My woman is a good woman. She cooks good salt pork in the dead of winter.

    So no.

    I am very strongly against unnecessary harm and cruelty to animals and the planet, but I have no problems eating any meat, or cutting down any tree.

    I find no problem with it. It's apart of life. It's balanced, everything is fair game. This is a dog eat dog world, and we forget this, we forget that we are just another animal inhabiting this earth.

    But that's my opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own, and I will not lose any respect for you if you are apposed to this. I don't think this will get far, though..a lot of people enjoy pork. If you don't want to eat pork, than that is fine. Just know that some people will probably disagree with you..and of course, some will agree.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    If I stop eating pork will I help stop animal cruelty? No.

    If we were so inclined, we could easily trace the manufacturing/preparation of most of our capitalist society's goods/products and find that, somewhere along the line, someone did something morally reprovable.

    Pork meat is the best meat, as far as i'm concerned.
    If there was just one pig left, I would eat it.

    aw, thanks. i was starting to feel a bit lonely here...............i don't usually do things like this, so it is quite weird. i'm fixing peppered bacon for breakfast for my family (cuz i already bought it, right?) and it will feel good to not indulge.

    Why avoid eating pork altogether? Why not simply resolve to eat only humanely farmed pork? Your post makes it sound like the reasoning is your personal fondness for pigs. Which is a fine reason to avoid it altogether for yourself, but not much of a reason to implore others to avoid it. "Don't eat pork because I like pigs!"
