Oh my god
Wow, fuck you, Dominos.
When will people stop pretending that the animals killed for them were happy and healthy like the animals on milk cartons and cheese packages? -_-
I KNOW I JUST SAW THIS YESTERDAY ITS FUCKED UP
But isn’t it about the CHEESE which does NOT require killing the animals? Isn’t that what the box is thanking them for?
Cows farmed for their milk have to be impregnated each year to produce milk. The male calves are the babies killed for veal. When the cows who have undergone a constant cycle of forced pregnancy, birth and forced separation from calf, and milking are just five years old, they are killed. They could live another two decades. All “dairy cows” are eventually killed for meat, as are their calves. Until then, they lead a life of suffering and anguish and do not willingly “give their milk to humans in the name of cheese.”
not a vegan, but dominos made a shit marketing move
*eyes roll so hard that I die*
This is tumblr for you. Dominos just wanted to be “cute” and of course, the cry babies come out.
still, they should’ve known there would’ve been backlash
Doesn’t really matter what they do, there will always be “backlash” for everything by people on the internet.
that’s why pizza hut makes the smart move and stays quiet
There is literally a ride at Hersheypark and it has singing cows talking about delicious chocolate and milk and stuff and nobody seems to complain about that. Where are all the crybabies now?
eh, not everyone gets hit by backlash
they dodged the bullet
i am probably a bad person for finding this funny.
Not going to deny the treatment of animals in mass farming is pretty damn awful, but a constant cycle of pregnancy is exactly what animals go through in the wild. I don’t imagine that traumatises them much.
"I don’t imagine that traumatises them much."
Just to be super clear, because I know there isn’t always a lot of information out there about the farming of cows for milk and that it took me a real long time to figure it all out:
A cow is born. She won’t reach sexual maturity until a few years later, but when she is just one year old, she has a metal rod and human arm inserted into her anus that deposits ejaculate from a bull into her uterus. This process is artificial insemination and it is similar to how artificial insemination occurs in humans. There are two big differences though: the human being impregnated knows what is going on and the human being impregnated has consented to this procedure. The cow has no idea why someone has an arm up her ass and she is constrained because she is freaking out.
After nine months of pregnancy, the cow gives birth, just like a human. The only difference is her baby is so large from human selective breeding she’ll often need someone there to help literally pull the calf out of her. She then wants to groom her newborn, to have her newborn nurse from her. Instead, within hours of birth, the calf is forcefully taken from her. She may be stunned. She’ll often cry out, sometimes for hours. Sometimes she cries so much and so loudly that neighbors hear her and call the police. The calf has been taken away because they would drink their mother’s milk and then there wouldn’t be as much for humans to sell and make money off of.
The calf, if male, will be placed in a tiny crate—called a veal crate—and be killed four months later. If the calf is female, she’ll be placed in a similar structure until she’s one and can be impregnated for the first time.
The baby cow who has just given birth to a baby cow and is mourning that separation is then hooked up to a machine and has her milk pumped out of her. After two months of this, she’ll be impregnated again, and will continue being milked for the duration of her pregnancy. And guess what happens when she gives birth? THE SAME FUCKING THING ALL OVER AGAIN.
When she’s about five, she’s considered “spent,” meaning her body is so exhausted from this that keeping her around isn’t profitable. She could live another 20 years, but they kill her the same way they kill every other cow and turn her into “cheap dairy beef.” 1 in 4 of these cows will be pregnant when they’re killed!
So, yeah, being upset about all this and about the depiction of cows as consenting, happy individuals who love to be exploited for the milk they’ve produced for their stolen newborn… it doesn’t make somebody a “crybaby.” It makes somebody a person with a conscience.
Taken the fuck DOWN. Thank you veganigans.
