Da sativa boyz are too grumpy! People do care about animals!!!
I like how that's an English survey.
What the fuck have you done for domestic violence?
If you genuinely think there's a comparison between how society treats animal abuse and domestic violence, in practice, I've got a few things to say to you. I know how the SPCA inspectorate operates, precisely. I know - in far more detail than I'd ever want - what sort of sentences child abuse can merit. These things are both horrible. I have no desire to measure up what's worse. I cannot compare the battery farm and the battered woman. Both churn my stomach. This isn't a grey-scale here. This is black, and black. But...our society makes far more effort to address one problem. Not nearly enough, but more.
Way I see it, anyone who is fighting against abuse of the weak, be they women, children, the disenfranchised, the starved, the animals, and all the victims of the shit man wreaks upon this world...anyone who's fighting against that deserves at least a nod of respect.
It's not a matter of finding out what's worst and most under-aided and most fucked with some kind of calculus. It's about actually fucking trying to help things.
