if not this, then nothing will!!! lol<br><br><br><br>
stupid people cant open up their stupid little heads and put themselves in other positions.<br><br><br><br>
sit down with some meat-eaters and watch the movie Hostel. Don't say anything until the end but keep in mind all the remarks he/she is most likely to say throughout the movie. As soon as the movie is done, compare it to the slaughterhouses of animals and watch the reaction. if nothing positive comes out of this, show the meat your meat video, and then ask him/her to describe the difference between the two.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"> some people are really mean

Um... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"> show all the movies you want, I don't think there's anything a person can do to "MAKE" someone stop eating animals.<br><br><br><br>
They have to make that decision on their own - and many people out there can watch Meat Your Meat and have a hamburger 10 minutes later. They don't connect the two.<br><br><br><br>
Setting a good example is probably your best bet.<br><br><br><br>
That, and <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=4969" target="_blank">warm (vegan-duh!) chocolate chip cookies...</a>

There is no way in hell that would change the minds of anyone I know. They would simply say they dont care about horrible things that happen to animals. When someone doesnt care, they dont care. You cant really change it.<br><br><br><br>
And I agree, HOstel was the worst excuse for a "scary" movie Ive ever seen. NOT SCARY, not even that gorey really (only in a really fake sorta way)..no suspense..stupid acting, horrible characters. I hated it.

Early on when I first became Veg, I said something similiar to a guy I go to school with. I said, "If you see the movie Meet Your Meat, you'll probably have a change of heart immediately."<br><br><br><br>
He looked me dead in the eyes and said, "Oh I've seen it. I've seen videos of pigs being shot in the head, I've watched cows being gutted. Doesnt matter. Give me a steak! Mmmm...I love steak."<br><br><br><br>
I was horrified...but I shut-up. I had no response of anykind.<br><br><br><br>
Like someone else said...if they dont care, they dont care. Nothing can change that.

*nods* I hate that expression "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian." Um, who do you think works in the slaughterhouses?

I showed my omni bf Earthlings. It did not have any effect on him. He said that he did not care about animals... sometimes it is better not to show certain omnis AR movies because you will be really disappointed in their reaction <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I saw Hostel with my ex boyfriend about a year ago<br><br>
It was so nasty... we both left the theatre and had to go wit in <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Cheaper By The Dozen 2</span> because we were so depressed from it.<br><br><br><br>
But that only made us even more depressed, watching <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Cheaper By The Dozen</span>....

I saw Hostel too and right away I drew similar conclusions about the slaughterhouse imagery. But it's important to remember that the omni world just does not see things in a similar vein. I've sat through the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (a movie with even stronger slaughterhouse/murder parallels) with people who were eating chicken.<br><br><br><br>
I also strongly agree that viewing footage of animal abuse won't cause most people to renounce meat. Farm families raise animals from babies, then kill them and eat their flesh. And millions of people shoot animals for recreation and personal amusement. Most people simply do not care what an animal feels or experiences, and often only like animals when it is convenient.

I tend to think living by example does a whole lot more good than any gory movie.

I prefer feeding them really good vegan food, and watching them be shocked at how good it actually is!</div>

bingo! i do that all the time. everyone in my family always acts like what there about to eat is going to be the worst thing in the world. however, after they taste it they think its one of the better things they've ever eaten<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

You could also outright kill them. That way, they'd never eat ANYTHING again.

I know. That's what lessens my compassion for the vast majority of slaughterhouse workers. It might be one thing to work somewhere like that if one truly imagined they had no options in life; it's another to continue to participate in the suffering by creating the demand, as most slaughterhouse workers do (i.e. the vast majority aren't veg). What they're showing is that, while some may be economic victims, they are very comfortable being the perpetrators as well, when it comes to beings far more helpless and in need than themselves.

And you wouldn't have to listen to all the arguments about how "eating meat is natural," and "lions eat meat, and you don't try to get them to stop," and "vegetarians are weak," and "meat tastes goood!" etc. etc. again either.
