Great responses!

I don't usually see an opportunity like this on FB- but I do see it as a positive opening to help her see how horribly animals are treated like the "pet animals" that she loves and wants to protect.

I know the other girl who agreed with her- she is also an omni.

I have been debating a pm or saying it on her wall, I have gotten huge backlash for simply stating I was vegan before on my wall and had to delete my post after all heck broke loose. I know others who will just open it up to a huge debate and I don't have the energy for it today, even though it probably is my duty to do so, given the opportunity.

I will sit on this a bit longer, but I should say something before it is no longer fresh. There were a couple of other people agreeing with her, i feel like I should say something to them too, but don't know them.

Anyhoo- I wanted to share- I thought it funny that she left herself wide open to vegetarian propaganda, I never see anything like this!

Hi Christina!
I saw your discussion about how much you love animals and hate to see them treated that way. I couldn't agree more!
I love dogs, and pet animals, but I also feel all animals are created equal. I feel the same way about cows, chickens, and pigs as I do dogs. It disheartened me so much to find out how they were treated and tortured in factory farms across the country, recently. It was very shocking and eye opening when I watched a small video a while ago, and I have found out much more since then.

I know this is probably an unexpected message, but I have been thinking about what you wrote earlier, and thought you might be open to seeing what is really going on behind closed doors. If you are not interested, just disregard this message. If I have sparked your interest, here are some more links:

thanks for listening,

I sent her a pm!

I did because one of the girls who responded to her would have torn me apart, and I don't feel educated enough for battle. I also know its not like a message board where I can disappear- its facebook and everyone and everything is linked. Sometimes it shares comments I made on other peoples walls- like my mothers, co-workers- I learned my lesson earlier- I just can't discuss how I feel about this subject with people who don't want to listen, especially friends and family.
