You made your initial statement invalid by mentioning Hemmingway's opposing thoughts. Sorry bud. Either way, I think we should worry about what people do to other people before we worry about the horses. Some of the same horses get fed and maintained better than people in anyone's town

The animals are treated really well and they do train constantly, like highly trained athletes. They live for running too. Is it worse to run them in the chucks or the rodeo? Or let the horses go to waste and end up in a rich spoiled 12 year old girls stable?

That's the life I'd want if I was a horse. Just chilling and getting my hair brushed all day.

No, I'm not an instigator. I live in Calgary so I have the wonderful privilege of being surrounded by that kind of shit a little too much, it's not my style.

I live in Brandon so I'm around it just as much. No issue if its not your style though. But cowboy boots are the supreme footwear

And starving africans are treated better than aborted fetuses.


And yes it is absolutely cruel, seeing as they cannot consent.

Is pet ownership cruel as well since my cat cannot consent to sitting around my house eating all my plants?

Yes.


I have cats. And feel bad about it sometimes. Except I don't force them to do anything.

I have nothing against the rodeo because of how they treat the animals or anything, as far as I know they're treated pretty well. I just dislike rodeos and cowboy types in general.

So is leaving animals in the wild cruel because they cannot consent to living on their own and fighting the elements and disease and being forced to forage for food to survive?
#22
Sometimes yes.


What are you trying to get at, that the world isn't perfect and fair? Well no shit, Sherlock.
#23
The point is that defining cruelty by an animals cognitive inability to consent to anything is stupid, arbitrary, and wrong and that was one of the dumbest things I've read recently.

Even if you apply this definition to humans and the other three animals in the world who have some advanced mental faculties it's stupid. According to you literally every kid going through puberty is living in cruelty because they don't consent to whatever rules mommy and daddy have set up for them. In fact the entire premise of our system of government is cruel because it operates on an implicit assumption of the consent of the governed.

tl;dr you're stoopit

Calgary Stampede sounds like it should be an MLS team.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?
Who am I? I'm a titan so be expectin' a clash.
