I kill

1 Comment and 2 Shares

Warning: This video features numerous instances of animals being killed and butchered.

I Kill follows a New Zealand slaughterman named Beatle as he travels from farm to farm, killing pigs, sheep and cattle with a single gunshot to the skull, and dressing their carcasses before delivering them to butchers. Though his relaxed attitude towards the deaths of these animals might make him appear detached from the act of killing, he’s thoughtful and principled about his profession. He describes his methods as an honest, informed and humane way to avoid the stress and suffering dispensed in slaughterhouses, and as simply the best way to provide meat for human consumption.

For a very different perspective on animal slaughter, read 'A "humanely" Killed Animal Is Still Killed – and That’s Wrong' by Anna Charlton and Gary Francione.

If you have to kill animals this does seem like a better way to do it and our industrial slaughterhouses. But i'm no expert.

Just the trip to the slaughterhouse stresses the animals. A stressed animal has tougher meat and, obviously, stress hormones all over. I understand how this can be shocking to people who have never seen an animal slaughtered. This guy is a master. Pigs scream when they know they are going to die. Not these - eating apples, pop, gone. Not a peep.

I don't eat fish anymore. So is lack of fish-eating more or less ethical than a lack of chicken-eating? :)

Eurovision pulls out of China after it censored an LGBTQ-themed video

1 Comment

Eurovision has pulled out of China, ending its contract with the local Chinese channel that airs the show, after that broadcaster censored an Irish music video that featured an LGBTQ love story.

The European Broadcasting Union, which puts together Eurovision and licenses out broadcasts, said in a statement to The New York Times that censoring an LGBTQ love story was “not in line with the EBU’s values of universality and inclusivity and our proud tradition of celebrating diversity through music.”

The Chinese broadcaster, Mango TV, censored the video for Ryan O’Shaughnessy’s “Together,” which features two male dancers holding hands. It also did not show Albania’s “Mall” performance because of the performers’ tattoos, according to state-run...

"Last summer, a government-affiliated group called China Netcasting Services Association began requiring two auditors for each piece of audiovisual content online to check if sites were adhering to “core socialist values,” which included a rejection of homosexual content."

Wtf does sexuality have to do with socialism? Am I missing something obvious? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_Socialist_Values

Like all censors, they just censor what the more intolerant leaders care about. I assume China has its own share of homophobes in the government. Besides, literally everything China does has to have some reference to "socialist" or "communist" values whether or not if it is relevant.
