想保护动物又不想变成素食主义?多吃牛肉少吃鸡

Want to save animal lives without going veg? Eat beef, not chicken.

几十年来 Matt Ball一直是一个素食主义者和动物福利活动家
但这些天他认为素食激进主义可能损害动物福利
每个人都曾遇到过对他们粗鲁无礼的素食主义者
Everyone has met a vegan who has been rude to them
或者 你们知道的
or who has been, you know,
他们行为离谱 或者表现得非常生气 大声嚷嚷
outrageous or just angry or yelling at them.
“这牛奶是从奶牛妈妈那里偷来的
“This milk was stolen from mothers.
奶牛妈妈的自由被夺走了!”
Mothers whose freedoms were taken from them!”
所以毫不奇怪 像安东尼•波登这样的人
So it’s not surprising that someone like Anthony Bourdain
会称呼素食者为真主党
will call vegans Hezbollah–
“素食主义者 无论他们怎么称呼自己
“Vee-jans or ve-jans or whatever they call themselves,
他们是真主党
they’re the Hezbollah of, uh,
他们跟危险的原教旨主义团体有许多共同点”
they share a lot similarities with dangerous fundamentalist groups.”
我们就是这样的名声
Because we just have this reputation.
这是正确的 因为我们中有很多人表现得过度狂热
Rightly so, because of how many of us act, of just being absolute fanatics.
Matt Ball动物权利倡导者 素食主义者
Matt Ball Animal rights advocate,vegan
基本上没有人是因为想让动物受苦而吃肉
Basically no one eats meat because they want animals to suffer.
没有人会去杂货店说
No one goes to the grocery store and says,
“是的 我喜欢泰森对鸡做的那些事
“Yeah, I love what Tyson does to this chicken.
这就是我要支持的”
That’s what I’m going to support.”
“鸡被他们抓住脆弱的翅膀
“Chickens were punched, kicked, swung,
打 踢 甩 扔”
and thrown by their fragile wings.”
人们吃肉 因为周围的人都吃肉
People eat meat because everyone around them eats meat.
这是他们习惯的事
It’s what they’re used to,
这是他们熟悉的事
it’s what’s familiar,
这对他们来说容易又便宜
it’s what’s easy and cheap.
“肯德基让价值变得简单
“KFC were making value simple.
在很有限的时间内 只需12.99美元就能得到每桶10块鸡肉”
For a limited time get a 10-piece bucket for only $12.99!”
我和一些朋友决定
What some friends and I decided is
我们应该采取一种不同的方法
we should take a different approach,
而不应该仅仅只推广素食主义
rather than just pushing veganism,
我们应该抓住机会
we should take the opportunity that
让人们迈出一步 这将对那些受苦的动物
people have to take one step that will have a profound impact
产生深远的影响
on the number of animals suffering.
那就是让人们不再吃鸡了
And that is to have them not eat chickens anymore.
不管他们吃什么来代替
No matter what they eat instead,
只要他们不吃鸡
if they cut out eating chickens
他们将会取消对工厂化农场的大部分支持
they will remove the vast majority of their support for factory farms.
每年美国人均饮食会造成约有25只陆生动物
The average American diet causes about 25 land animals
被工厂化饲养和屠宰
to be factory farmed and slaughtered every year.
如果人们仅仅停止吃鸡
If people just stopped eating chickens,
就能够省下这些动物中的23只
they will spare 23 of those animals.
这是因为200多只鸡
This is because it takes over 200 chickens
提供的肉与一头牛相当
to provide the same number of meals as one steer
40多只鸡提供的肉与一只猪相当
or over 40 chickens to provide the same number of meals as one pig.
已经有大量的研究
There have been a number of studies.
Faunalytics最新的研究
The most recent by Faunalytics,
表明80%的素食主义者
that shows over 80% of people who go vegetarian
最后会放弃素食开始吃肉
go back to eating animals,
几乎有一半的受访者说
and almost half of the people surveyed on this
他们开始吃肉
say that they go back
是因为无法忍受单一的饮食
because they can’t stand the pressure to maintain a pure diet.
所以当我们向人们推广我们的饮食方式时——
So when we’re pushing people to eat the way we eat—
“我在考虑做个素食主义者”
“I was thinking of going vegan.”
“我是一个五星级素食主义者
“I’m a level 5 vegan,
有负罪感的食物我一点儿都不吃”
I won’t eat anything that casts a shadow.”
“哇哦”
“Wow.”
我们把人赶走了
we are driving people away.
是我们让他们重新吃肉 放弃素食
We are driving people back to eating meat.
大约2%的人是真正的素食主义者
Around 2% of people are true vegetarians
在美国大约有0.5%的人是严格的素食主义者
and about a 0.5% of the people in the United States are vegan.
这是经过几十年倡导的结果
Now this is after decades of advocacy.
彼得·辛格的著作《动物解放》在20世纪70年代出版
Peter Singer’s book Animal Liberation came out in the 1970s.
PETA组织(善待动物组织)创建于1980年
PETA came around in 1980.
因此 相关团体和倡导者在这方面已经坚持几十年了
So groups and advocates have been at this for decades
然而美国素食主义者的比例
and yet the percentage of people in the United States
基本上没有改变
who are vegetarian has basically not changed at all.
所以现在是时候重新考虑我们的差使
So it really is time for us to reconsider our message,
重新考虑我们的主张
reconsider our advocacy,
做一些有可能与众不同的事
and do something that has a chance of being different,
借机使公众有所突破
that has a chance of breaking through to the general public.
因为我们知道 只要看一下图表
Because we know, just by looking at the graphs,
只要看看数字(红肉和家禽人均消费量)
just by looking at the numbers,
就能发现到目前为止 我们在这上面一直都是失败的
that we have been failures at this so far.
