These are PUPPIES, crammed into a cage so small, they can’t move. They will remain this way until sold at meat market. There are 11 countries in which dogs and cats are eaten, and (most notably) in Korea and China, they are brutally tortured before killing, in the belief that adrenaline released during extreme torture “flavors” the meat and adds to a man’s sexual prowess.

Go vegan.

Your chicken dinner was treated like this.

Eating meat is associated with masculinity and sexual prowess, most notably in a country called america. The chickens are crammed into cages so small that they often suffocate in their own feces. Even baby calves are treated atrociously, with the males being killed at a young age because they cannot produce milk. They are held as stationary as possible in a belief that lack of muscle development will make their meat taste more tender and delicious. 
Yeah let’s stop writing captions about Asian countries like they’re some foreign, mysterious lands with inexplicable superstitions when america is chock full of ignorance about the way animals and human bodies work.

In this issue, National Geographic explains that with our world’s population expected to increase from 7 billion to 9 billion by 2050, we are going to have to double crop production if we are to feed everyone. They explain that slashing more forest to create cropland is not an option, as we have already caused too much deforestation for the purpose of creating grazing land for cattle. National Geographic argues that we must become more efficient with the way we produce food: “It would be far easier to feed 9 billion people by 2050 if more of the crops we grew ended up in human stomachs”, instead of being fed to farm animals. They explain, “For every 100 calories of grain we feed animals, we get only about 40 new calories of milk, 22 calories of eggs, 12 of chicken, 10 of pork, or 3 of beef.” The crux is that the smart action to take to feed the most people, would be to eat the grain directly instead of wastefully feeding it to farm animals. If you care about solving the problem of world hunger, then go vegan.

that’s great let’s do it
all in favor go vegan, the rest can fuck right off this planet

In 1995, wolves were re-introduced into the Yellowstone National Park, after being wolf-free for 70 years. What naturalists and biologist never imagined, was that the most remarkable thing would take place. Mother Nature knows what she’s doing if we just leave her alone.

I absolutely loved that video and I wish all the people that think humans can control nature well could see it.

The loudest person in my asian American studies class is white. She is very opinionated on matters like microaggression and labor exploitation and model minority.

There is something wrong with this and if you can’t see it, then please listen more closely to the experiences of actual minorities instead of speaking up over us about your opinions of those minorities.

What about cheetahs? From what I've read they can be safely domesticated. So say you're rich, have enough land to let it run, and can afford food and medical care. Would that be unethical?

They aren’t domesticated.  At all.  They are more docile than most of the cat species, yes.  But it still does not justify trying to keep one as a pet.  This what if scenario is so unlikely, but yes it is still unethical because it still furthers that idea that we can just keep whatever we want despite the implications.  It would still fuel a pet trade, it would still detract from their conservation, and it would still harm the public perception of what wild animals really are.

Domestication
Domestication (from Latin domesticus: “of the home”) is the process whereby a population of living organisms is changed at the genetic level, through generations of selective breeding, to accentuate traits that ultimately benefit the interests of humans.
Cheetah’s are not domesticated, try again.
