Some OC Assholes were all Excited about the foie gras ban in California being lifted

One of my unpublished resolutions was that I didn’t want to get into debates on my own FB page. And because of this, I’ve opted out on debating on anyone else’s, regardless of how misguided they are. Why? Because on my FB page, it’s my opinion and guess what? I don’t GAF about anyone else’s, so I’m assuming that they don’t GAF about mine, and I’d rather not expend the energy debating it. This is why I hate Facebook. It’s given a voice to so many assholes. So many assholes. What happened to the days where it was uncouth to talk about religion and politics? I miss those days. Have your opinions, but dammit, if you know they’re out there, keep them to your fucking self, I do, for the most part, otherwise everyone would know how I think that there should be a life lottery that kills off 3/4 of the worlds population….oops I wasn’t supposed to mention that. But seriously, the planet would be totally better off.

Anyway – to protect the innocent, I’m going to just copy and paste shit here, because I love my friends, not so much my friends friends, and I’m probably just overreacting but honestly, this is the kind of shit that makes me want to live in a cave.

Initial post:

Girl Friend: “People against Foie Gras make me laugh (at least the ones like this), especially meat eating people who are against Foie Gras. There are ethical and non ethical farms everywhere. Do your research, people.” with a link to this article Foie Gras Is For Assholes

And then the ensuing posts:

Female 1 Friend of Girl Friend:Mmmmm foie gras” Girl friend’s husband, who owns a restaurant likes this post. 

Husband of Girl Friend: “I feel anyone named Hamilton Nolan must be a asshole.” girl friend + 6 other of girl friend’s friends like this post.

Male Friend 1 of Girl Friend: “[girl friend’s husbands name tagged] they should ban eating asshole and Hamilton Nolan will die of starvation”, girl friend’s husband, girl friend, and female friend 1 like this post

Female Friend 2 of Girl Friend: “First and foremost, we are at the top of the foodchain. We hunt and kill animals for nourishment. It’s so annoying to read or hear people giving animals the exact same rights as humans. I do not believe in torture, I do not believe in inhumane conditions. I do believe in society evolving into creating delicious meals by feeding these animals until their hearts content, living a luxurious lifestyle compared to my own. Bam. Case closed” Girl friend likes this post

Male Friend 2 of Girl Friend: “This article is written in a recklessly crass fashion, but I suppose I understand the underlying sentiments. I’m not sure I buy the argument about humane practices behind Foie Gras, even if they are humane by comparison to other methods.

It makes me imagine a realm of beings superior to humans who justify wiping us out by claiming ethical superiority by subjecting us to lethal injection rather than a firing squad. That being said, I also agree with you that there is a great deal of hypocrisy at play when people bemoan the presence of Foie Gras but go about their practices of consuming other animal products that are produced with similar methods. I find myself eating meat products out of a combination of habit and enjoyment, but I do admit that I feel a bit more ethically bankrupt each time I do.

At the very least, it’s a call for dialogue… that is hopefully packaged in a more glamorous and sophisticated way than this piece.” Girl Friend, and 2 friends of Girl Friend like this post

Female Friend 3 of Girl Friend: They still force feed the animals until there assholes blow out in order to engorge their livers. I understand you all are trying to support this action for your business. I just think we are so well fed in America that we can make choices about our food that does not involve torture. On the health side of things.. We don’t want to be eating sick animals. I assume you will delete this comment but I hope you don’t because every story has two sides and truth.. Is truth.” Mutual Guy Friend 1 likes this

Girl Friend:  “Female Friend 3, can I show you a picture of the conditions and death of the people who have killed themselves at the iPhone factory? Or maybe a nice sweater you own?Or how about how people get those leather boots? There is torture everywhere. There are humane farms and not humane farms. And no, I’m not spouting this because of the restaurant. I’m spouting it because people need to know both sides.”
Female Friend 2: “well said.”
Male Friend 2: “yes. I too struggle when I really eat any meat…but I do. I’m aware of the awful conditions, the slaughter, the hormones, the terrible life. But…I still eat and enjoy. A part of me believes that’s what they are there for. Not all…but yea, again. An internal struggle. The thing is, yes. People will go pick up chicken from the grocery store that has spent a life not able to move in a cage with 10 other birds. They are in cages never cleaned, and live an awful life of cruelty. They won’t think twice about it. Same goes for EVERY other type of animal out there being killed for food. Yet they gripe about foie gras? When it comes to ‘humane’, there is a difference. Shit, maybe Husband of Girl Friend said it best” Female Friend 2 likes this, and 2 other female friends, and a male friend.
Female Friend 3: “I just choose not to support the cruelty. I think it is weird when people are aware but look the other way.” Mutual Guy Friend 1 likes this post also.

Girl Friend: Gold? Here is a child in the Phillies getting that for our pleasure and greed. Now you are aware. Don’t look the other way.”

No one likes this post – it was designed that way.
Female Friend 3: “Nope.. No gold! I actually don’t feel as bad for people as I do animals anyway. Animals are have no choice. They just have to deal with what we choose as their fate” no likes – this is where she totally lost her argument. She had an in and could have argued it, but she blew it.
Girl Friend: “Wow. Really? You think this girl has a ‘choice’? So in this situation, it’s ok to look the other way? Got it.” Female friend 2, and male friend 2 like the post.
Male Friend 3: “I guess I’m an assh*le at the top of the food chain… ” Girl Friend, and Female Friend 1 like this
Female Friend 3: “Yes… She does have a choice to do this or not. She is not in a cage. Maybe her desire to get ahead or get out of this situation is her cage but that is a mental cage and not a physical one. Anyhoo… Everyone has an opinion and I appreciate yours.” no one likes this post, this poster has completely lost any hope of an audience or support.
Girl Friend: I just guess sitting here on our smartphones, with food in our stomachs and a roof over our head, I look at ‘choice’ differently. And I, like you, will look the other way and unfortunately move on. And yes, I love a healthy debate” Female Friend 1, and Female Friend 3 like this (actually I think 3 has given up at this point).
Female Friend 1: “Holy shit. The fact that you even can sit there saying these work slaves have a choice just makes me think you’re a smug self righteous broad that has to “stand her ground” at all costs. GTFU with your half assed “argument,” I’m so sure!”, no one likes this comment, as it is off putting and assholeish. Totally a word. Fuck you spell check, you don’t know me.
Mutual Female Friend 1: “Aaaand this convo just turned me into a vegetarian.” I like this, mutual male friend 1 likes this mutual male friend 2 likes this, and Girl Friend likes this (confused a little on that one).
Male Friend 3: “The only humane foie gras farm I know of is in Spain. Doest every other farm force feed?” no likes

Girl Friend: “[Mutual Female Friend 1] I’m so glad my human rights talk moved you so  I swear, if anyone hates foie gras they better be Vegan or I’m gonna…I’m gonna…do nothing. Yea. Because that seems to be the way.” Husband of Girl Friend, Female Friend 1, and Female Friend 4 like this one.

Male Friend 4: “You know, I’ll wear the title “asshole”. It wouldn’t be the first time…and this time I get to eat FOIE GRAS! If I were a goose or a duck with a brain, I would be terrified of dying, not eating too much. By the way, have you ever seen those birds get fed…they RUN to the feeder, no torture.

So who’s really the asshole? Those that want to enjoy the short time we have on this earth? Or those who choose to impart their potentially misguided dietary will on others? I’m still pissed that I can’t get unpasteurized cheese.

You know, I’d never force a burger down the throat of a vegetarian, don’t impose your will on me.” Girl Friend, Husband of Girl Friend, and Female Friend 4 like this.

My response (not posted, because fuck Facebook) I’m not really on that shit anymore.

Ima break this shit down.

 

“We hunt and kill animals for nourishment.” – No you don’t you pussy. Not a one of you on this thread has actually hunted for food out of necessity. Oh, you have? Because you were starving? And you had to? You live in America and you’re on facebook because you had access to the internet. You’ve never had to hunt for shit in your life. Fuck off.

“It’s so annoying to read or hear people giving animals the exact same rights as humans”. Sorry to annoy you, but animals have never been given the exact same rights as humans – even on the PETA end of shit (don’t fucking PETA me, PETA is a bunch of assholes that I’m totally not associated with them, fuck those guys, they’re insane). Do you have pets, excuse me, animals that you don’t eat? How do you treat them? Are you a condescending asshole to them? You pat them on the head, and treat them to a luxurious lifestyle before eating them?

“I do believe in society evolving into creating delicious meals by feeding these animals until their hearts content.” If you would like in on this luxurious lifestyle, here, I’ll sit on your stupid ass and shove a tube down your throat so you can not taste a delicious meal and get fat, like this guy. I have school, and work, and stuff, but I’m sure I could find the time, if you really wanted to be afforded the same treatment. [Picture of old asshole sitting on a goose with a tube down it’s throat]

The meat and potatoes, so to speak in this poorly titled, and absurdly written article, is that most people are going to be purchasing this revolting dish from a restaurant, it’s just not typical home dining fare. I realize two out of the 10 posters own a restaurant – and that they are actually upstanding people that will most assuredly seek out the most humane and ethically sourced supply off this obese goose liver substance should they chose to serve it (Jesus fucking Christ, that all sounds god damned fucking revolting) HOWEVER, most restaurateurs are going to be looking at their bottom line, seeing as the restaurant business in general is a fickle fucking bitch, and they’ll probably obtain fat goose liver from a place like this: [picture of a goose with a broken face]

Oh yeah, that guy – totally luxurious lifestyle. Broken beaks are so this season!

And I’m sorry, but the “oh but poor Filipino girls forced into slavery” has no part in this conversation. Not that the situation with child slavery isn’t atrocious, it’s that it’s apples and oranges. We’re talking about apples right now, and you want to toss in oranges to try to prove a point, and really it’s a whole other topic that people are aware of, but we’re still talking about apples right now. Adding another completely, 100% different topic, is like saying “gum is terrible for your teeth and this is why dental hygiene is important – but really you’re intestines and heart are suffering too and it’s because of your gut bacteria”. There are a million and one atrocities committed against humans in the world, we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about shitty animal farmers trying to make an extra buck by cutting costs.

“I guess I’m an assh*le at the top of the food chain…” yup, because your life is comfie and handed to you. GO YOU!

“The fact that you even can sit there saying these work slaves have a choice just makes me think you’re a smug self righteous broad that has to “stand her ground” at all costs. GTFU with your half assed “argument,” I’m so sure!” Yeah – I don’t have much on this one, she wasn’t good with her argument, but you’re a wannabe valley girl douche that lives in OC, so of course you would pounce on that one. I’m so sure! Gag me with a spoon already you self-righteous twat monster.

“By the way, have you ever seen those birds get fed…they RUN to the feeder, no torture” yeah, the broken beak goose totally looks like he’s hauling ass to that feeder oh one that knows all that is foie gras. Do you work on one of these farms? I’m just curious as to where you get your expertise. You seem well learned to me.

“I feel like I’m reading the comments section of a Yahoo article…” hey assholes that agreed with this statement – it wasn’t a fucking compliment. Everyone knows that the people that comment on these articles are douchbags. Go ahead, like that you’re a douchebag. YEY!

The only one that got it right is the last fucking comment – This is all so sad. Why? Justifying the mass production of gross fucking food for human gain (monetary and fatness), and then poking fun at the people that object to it. That’s the really shitty thing. You know, I don’t ever announce what my stance on animal rights are or vegginess etc, because everyone loves the poke fun at the vegan game. Go choke on your foie gras you sack of dicks, and when you get some gnarly parasite that eats out your brain because it wasn’t ethically sourced and came from a farm where geese blow out their butthole, and that blown out butthole is force fed to another goose to save money because that’s the way the gross meat industry is, I’ll be like “sorry dude, don’t eat gross shit next time, because seriously – broccoli doesn’t cause this shit”.

And finally “I’m still pissed that I can’t get unpasteurized cheese.” No, no you’re not. Do you even want to get me started on the diseases born out of unpasteurized dairy products? I actually work with someone whose mother passed away from Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (that’s mad cow – like hole in your brains disease, just in case you weren’t sure) on account of unpasteurized cheese. Yeah, you can get that from cheese. Gross.

The problem with America is that we like to make things available to everyone, and that means that EVERYTHING is exploited and tainted. Foie gras will be at Walmart now bitches. Go ahead and tell me how it’s ethically sourced now. Fuck off.

    Thank you writing this, her post really pissed me off and you summerized many of my thoughts on this topic.

    How do you think this conversation would have gone if it were at a party of real people with differing opinions? Much different I think. FB gives people a false sense of backbone.

    “Do your research, people” was the match that lit the fuse of that post. I started to write responses but stopped short with the thought of “don’t engage, it will go absolutely nowhere.” I spent the rest of that time just pissed off that people can skew their opinions so blindly in order to sleep better at night.

    I wanted to bring up the Smithfield Farm in North Carolina, but I was already disgusted by the responses and again… didn’t want to engage.
