What are you hypocritical of?

Good question, we are definitely all hypocritical in some way. I try my best to not be, and I'm not going to answer this question but I do find the whole thing interesting of what things each of us are hypocrites with without noticing it.

In relation to the food one, which I agree with, it immediately made me think of violence. I’m not a violent person nor would I look for a fight but if attacked or a family member was being attacked, I’d resort to it. Thankfully, this has only ever happened once though. 

I think performance as well. Like that quite broad but my performance is something I’m very critical of, whether it’s at work, cooking something, life in general, betting, you name it, I will be critical of my performance at it.

Interestingly thought of similar - I wouldn't label it hypocritical. You can be not violent and still have pride/dignity/protection about keeping others safe through resorting to it. As long as it's unprovoked obviously.

Probably to do with meat.

Know that the meat industry is fairly horrific at times and not sustainable yet will still eat a Bargain Bucket or Big Mac.

I could probably kill my food if I had to, and would prefer it tbh. Far more natural and ethical to hunt and use the animal for everything you can than rather than buy meat to eat for everyday of the week.

The only problem with this is that if everyone went around killing their own food, it would create a massive ecological imbalance and you'd end up with a lot of animals becoming rare and in threat of extinction, you'd also end up with too many predators and not enough prey for them. Just look at some of the rivers in Poland. Since they eat everything they catch, some of these rivers are completely devoid of fish. In fact, the cunts clean canals out of pike over here in the UK as well! You also have low numbers of deer in a lot of places over here due to gamekeepers(I hate those cunts, they kill birds of prey all the time and get away with it, they should be stabbed in their throats) and gypsies who kill them for sport.

Pigs, sheep and cows are bred for the purpose of food at the end of the day, so loving wildlife but eating farm animals is hardly hypocritical in my opinion.

 

 

I suppose you could say I'm hypocritical in the fact that I love sticking hooks in fish's mouths, although if someone did that to a bird or mammal, I would cause physical harm to them.

I also adore meat... A big meat eater but couldn't take the life of an animal unless I was also under threat.

To be honest I'm quite a hypocritical person with many things although not in a malicious manner.

As you are a huge fashion icon, you would also pay someone to kill an animal for their fur :(   so you can turn it in to hats, pants or long socks.

It is. It's called speciesism. 

Why value one animal above the other when both are sentient beings and want to live?

Because one is native and and has an important purpose, while the other is bred for food and exists for that purpose.

I'd gladly kill a mink or a rat, as they are invasive pests that cause all types of ecological problems, but I wouldn't kill a Weasel or a Stoat as they serve an important purpose and are native species. It's why I kill flies but don't kill spiders or bees too.

Nah mate... Anti-Fur, totally Although not anti-leather goods obviously. I’m not about to return to prehistoric times and wear cloth shoes.

The fact we have chose one animal to be a commodity for us doesn't excuse the fact that all animals have the will to live. It's hypocritical regardless.

People who kill spiders are the biggest cunts. What's wrong with just catching them in a glass and putting them outside?

My mate @nudge will agree.


 

 

Cos then they'll just come back in xD 

I can't stand the fuckers. I'm a bit more tolerant than I used to be though - sometimes I'll take them out and let them free (albeit from a very large height). I get that they're more beneficial to a household than not in that they'll eat and find dustmites/flies/termites etc and stop them getting in a home. They're still fucking freaky though.

My mate @Rafa Beneathus will agree that spiders themselves are bigger cunts.

I don't think killing animals like chicken and cattles is hypocritical.

We don't breed Tigers and Wolves that is why there population is balanced in the eco system. But we breed cattles and sheeps more than the required just for us if we dont consume them then it will distrup the ecosystem otherwise.

The ecosystem and the future of the planet is actually in grave danger due to the over breeding of animals for human consumption as the population gets bigger and bigger.

It is when animals such as dogs and cats are spared.

Eating meat and not wanting to kill an animal isn't being hypocritical.

I live in a house but I don't want to build one. I eat potatoes but I don't want to grow them and dig them up. Neither make me hypocritical.

Eating meat, but preaching that killing animals is disgusting or inhumane is hypocritical and eating meat, but 'loving' animals is hypocritical.

Yes, it is. Which ever way you look at it, there is no difference in moral standard by paying someone to kill your food for you vs killing an animal yourself. 

There is no contradictory of moral standards by building your own home or growing your own potatoes. 

Not wanting to harm an animal yet gladly indulge in the consumption of animal products, is hypocritical.

It really depends on what your morals are though. If one does not find it immoral to kill an animal for food, then doing it (or "paying" for getting it done) does not conflict with that individual's morality.

That depends if they are willing to kill the animal to eat and the reasons why you wouldn’t kill to eat it. If it’s because you’re a lazy git and rather pay but would kill it without remorse then without a doubt it’s not hypocritical. 

If on the otherhand you won’t kill the animal because of the guilt trip you would suffer but yet you enjoy eating it and will pay for someone else to kill it for you... then how anyone can’t see the hypocrisy in that it’s beyond me.

It's a big logical fallacy isn't it. If that person believes animals hold no moral value, then they should also be OK with the logic of a species higher in the food chain using them as a source of food.

True - but I think the claim that me slashing a pig's throat myself is akin to me eating bacon is a bit extreme... xD Just like there is a fine line between not finding it morally unacceptable to kill animals for food and having absolutely no qualms with it. I'm against hurting and taking any sentient life unnecessarily, doing it for food just doesn't fall into that category for me though. Do I feel sorry for the animal getting slaughtered? Yes, absolutely. But I see it as a natural thing and a necessity at the same time. I spent summers in the countryside growing up, and saw a lot of animals getting slaughtered (pigs, poultry, veal, etc.) after they've been raised by my grandma for a long time. Nobody got any pleasure from doing it, but it's just a part of life and neither I nor anyone else ever felt any remorse eating the meat afterwards. My only real issue is the way the killing is done. And with the farming industry; but that's a different topic I guess.

You make an assumption here that such person thinks that animals "hold no moral value" though; while there might be completely different reasoning at play there.  As for the second part of your post, I would be perfectly fine knowing that I'm the source of food for dinosaurs if they were still around xD Mind I'd still try to make sure I don't end up being someone's breakfast; but I'm absolutely fine with the logic behind it.

I didn’t grow up there but every summer I would go on holiday to Galicia (nothwestern Spain) with my parents. Part of that holiday was spent staying at my grandparents house up in the mountains where they had all sorts of animals, grew their own vegetables and even grew their own wheat and made their own bread in stone ovens. So I saw slaughtering of animals too (pigs being the worst because of the screaming they would let out)... I totally understand the whole process and have witnessed it from an early age. I haven’t got an issue with certain animals being bred for pur consumption but still I couldn’t take an animal’s life myself if it were for me to have to eat something I love which is meat.
