Lately, it is really starting to bother me when my (omni) Facebook friends post pictures of injured and abused pets in the name of "standing up against animal cruelty," when they are going to eat another animal at their next meal. I mean really bother me. This morning I woke up to a very gross photo of the poor dog who was injured when kids put a firecracker in its mouth, posted by someone who will likely eat cow, pig, or chicken later today.
I want to ask, how is it different...why are some animals protected and not others? I'd like to point out the mismatch, but I also don't want to start a Facebook fight. So I normally just scroll down and move on.
Do you respond to things like this? How? It's not that I don't value the friendships of these people (which is a big part of why I don't want to start a fight), I would just like them to see where their actions don't always match up with their words.
